Bauhaus – Mask
- Release details
On October 16th, 1981 the ‘Godfathers of Goth’ Bauhaus released their second studio album Mask. The record contained the singles “Kick in The Eye” and “The Passion of Lovers”, which expanded the instruments in the band’s sonic repertoire with the latter song’s use of keyboards and acoustic guitars, and the former song’s funky rhythms and saxophones courtesy of guitarist Daniel Ash, also featured on the tracks “Dancing” and “In Fear of Fear”.
Mask is a definite Gothic Rock and Post-Punk record—highlighting the cohesive songwriting of Daniel Ash, David J, Kevin Haskins and Peter Murphy, all working together at their very best.
