DOWNLOAD THIS NOW: Bauhaus, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead (Live)”

The Song In a Couple Sentences: Thanks to Blessure Grave‘s flawless ‘gloom and doom guide’ last week, we’ve been discovering our inner goth as of late. And what kind of latent Twilight extras would we be without blasting that quintessential creature of the night anthem, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”? This particular version is from the incredible (seriously–we just ordered the CD pressing, and we never do that anymore) Bauhaus live album that Blessure Grave gave two claws up. It’s nine minutes of pure ambiance that makes us want to hang from our office ceiling upside down. Okay, enough cliches for one day. Just listen, and fall in love with the roots of just about every prickly post-punk band you’ve dug for the past 10 years….
