Gothic Post-Punk Legends BAUHAUS Return With Brand New Ghostly Piece ‘DRINK THE NEW WINE’

New striking strokes

24 March 2022

British post-punk Goths BAUHAUS enjoyed the first part of their bumpy journey
from 1978 to 1983. Afterward, several reunions/splits occurred, with a new album
called Go Away White in 2008.

Back in 2019, they got together once again after 13 years.

And just now the band announced their first American shows in a long
while and dropped a new piece of music called DRINK THE NEW WINE.

An obscure and eidolic slow-moving trance-like procession sounding like
one of those Jah Wobble‘s bass impelled tracks from P.I.L’s sinister debut LP,
but Peter Murphy‘s tenebrous wailing reminds you that this is a vintage
Bauhaus performance.

Lyrics

Bell bottom blues
No pain, no pain
I’ll never see the boys again
‘Cause I’m off to the funny farm
Drown out the blues with booze
Now it’s off to the funny farm

I got news for you
Now I’m off to the funny farm
Casket of crisis
Too much tension and tears
I’ll never see the boys again
‘Cause I’m off to the funny farm
I’ll never see the boys again
‘Cause I’m off to the funny farm

Dreaming of a perfect world
Dreaming of a perfect world

The roulettista rolls the dice
The roulettista rolls
The roulettista rolls the dice
The roulettista rolls
