    Saw Peter Murphy last night in Portland. Peter was top notch (other than forgetting the lyrics to the second verse of Hurt). He hit every single note perfectly.

    The bad: She Wants Revenge opened, and I'm certain they played the same song for 45 minutes. So goddamn boring.
    Sound guy fucked up Peter's vocal effects and they had to stop for about 10 minutes after the second song. Peter unbuttoned his shirt and let people touch his nipples to pass the time.
    Peter's drummer was fucking awful. Couldn't keep time for shit, missed beats and kept missing fills. Peter was actually pointing at which drum should be hit on what beat.
    Lighting guy kept fucking up, and Peter had to keep telling him to go back to red.

    Summary: Peter was great. Everyone else was totally sub-par.

    The Descendants are an old punk rock band and that's what I thought of when I saw the title of this thread.

    Same here. I was thinking "Peter Murphy didn't write Milo Goes to College".

    my favorite of all the related projects is easily tones on tail, though bauhaus are equally fantastic. never cared for both love & rockets and the murph's solo career, outside of a few undeniable tracks (cuts you up, life in laralay, etc.).

    Just pressed play on a 89-song Bauhaus/Peter Murphy/Tones on Tail/Love and Rockets/David J/Daniel Ash/Kevin Haskins/Dalis Car playlist that I forgot I compiled a while back. Gonna be a good day at work.....


    (incidentally, can anyone change the damn thread title! "Descendants" just sounds weird. Good punk band, but weird wording in this regard.)

    Tones on Tail is probably the strongest of the side projects, but these are absolutely massive tunes:

    Nercrobump to talk about my recent resurgence of love for Love and Rockets. Haven't listened to them in a long time and I busted out a mixtape of them that I had in my car under a bunch of shit in my dashboard. Nay I say that listening to Kundalini Express at high speeds on the Interstate is fantastic.

    Not seeing NIN/Bauhaus/Peaches in Brixton is one of my all-time regrets

    I lead a charmed life

    superior to what? the original version on "Mask" or the version on the remastered version of "Mask"?

    Peter Murphy celebrates 35 years of Bauhaus!
    Our very good friends at Tombowler are excited to announce that iconic frontman Peter Murphy will be playing the Mr. Moonlight Tour, celebrating 35 years of Bauhaus. Murphy, who has started working with producer Youth (Killing Joke, The Verve) on the follow up to his 2011 critically acclaimed solo effort, NINTH, will play three shows in Australia this December with a full band performing only Bauhaus material. Says Peter, “Since 2006, I have included my Bauhaus work into my solo work as a way of tipping my hat to my own audience… those who discovered my early work as well as new and old fans of those years’ strong wishes to hear the music of my band crackle and spark in the live arena. Being the foremost advocate of this Bauhaus work, I decided the time was ripe to at last give a pure Bauhaus experience in one Mr. Moonlight world tour. Mr. Moonlight is alive and well, don't doubt it.” Bauhaus formed in 1978 and achieved worldwide cult status that continues to this day. As the main man of the acclaimed outfit, Peter Murphy helped usher in ground breaking opaque moods and atmospheres into the post-punk landscape. Bauhaus originally split in 1983, but eventually bowed to public pressure to reform in 1998 and again in 2005. The Mr. Moonlight Tour will be the first time since 2006 that Peter Murphy will perform full Bauhaus sets, and the first time ever that he will do so on his own.

    I really like "Bauhaus" and "Love & Rockets", i know a few songs of "Tones on Tail" and i like Pete as a solo act...

    I think one of the most interesting Bauhaus-related albums is "Unshattered" by Peter Murphy, the album is a great listen and truly has some beautiful tunes, it's on the vein of Nick Cave and Lou Reed and it didn't really have an impact, i bought ti because it was cheap mostly and i got a pleasant surprise when i played it...

    I love Mask and Burning From The Inside, great albums. I also love the long version of Bela Lugosi, great dub effects. I'm not too familiar with L&R or Murphy's solo shit.

    Of note: the 5CD Beggar's Banquet box set that just came out not too long ago has new masters for the Sky's Gone Out and Burning From The Inside, both of which were planned to receive Omnibus editions like In The Flat Field and Mask, but were shelved due to relatively low sales of the first two. I'll be picking that up. The singles CD also has that Spirit In the Sky B-Side from the Sanity Assassin single, so the completist in me will be quite happy with that.

    Murphy's Deep is one hell of an album.

    They were a favorite band in high school -- saw them on the very last headlining tour they did, but I don't think I've put on one of their records probably since I started this thread.

    Love & Rockets' first 4 records are great, and I think Hot Trip to Heaven is underrated. Not very big on Murphy solo. Also, if you haven't already, check out Daniel Ash's Tones on Tail.

    *necro bump*

    Can't believe nobody has posted in this thread for so long.

    Been listening to a lot of Peter Murphy today. Couple of thoughts:

    Lion is really good, and the remix version of it might be even better. Does anyone else enjoy the remix version?

    i was also listening to the 35 Years of Bauhaus live album and was struck by a comment he makes at the beginning of Severance. Something to the effect of "I'll be releasing Lion soon, an album Bauhaus could have made but didn't so I did." I can't find anything anywhere else in regards to this. Does anyone have any insight or is Murphy just weirdly talking shit and promoting his new solo album?

    Well, Bauhaus split right after GAW due to personal conflicts, not any creative differences. They could've easily write much more songs than they had time to finish.

    Btw I believe Go Away White is as good as four original albums.
