Go Away White


Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Nearly 25 years after its previous album, BURNING FROM THE INSIDE, the legendary U.K. goth-rock ensemble Bauhaus returned with its purported swan song, GO AWAY WHITE. While the famously brooding band splintered into various acts over the decades--most notably Love and Rockets, Tones on Tail, and frontman Peter Murphy solo--WHITE finds the group sounding remarkably cohesive, and, at times, disarmingly lighthearted.
  • For better or worse, Bauhaus actually seems to be having fun on the slinky "Too Much 21st Century," the fierce "Adrenalin," and the tongue-in-cheek "Endless Summer of the Damned," all of which feature Murphy gleefully indulging in his 1970s-Bowie-isms, and Daniel Ash casting out barbed guitar lines. Of course, the iconic quartet can't resist a partial return to truly sinister form, as best evinced on "The Dog's a Vapour," a moody track that points to Bauhaus's avant-garde leanings. Though it appears that WHITE won't be a new beginning for the beloved black-clad crew, it does serve as a fine, if unexpected, end.
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.83) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's rough and ready serrated rock, flush with unapologetic guitar flash from Daniel Ash..."

Alternative Press (p.88) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The rhythm section of the Haskins brothers is rock-hard, while guitarist Daniel Ash, allegedly using Jimi Hendrix's original Vox wah wah pedal, sounds fantastic."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.47) - "[With] penetrable, hooky and even foot-tapping fare..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.114) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Daniel Ash, whom Murphy lately gifted Jimi Hendrix's original Vox wah wah pedal, spirits up mighty, spacious riffs, groovily backed by David J and Kevin Haskins."

The Word (magazine) (p.100) - "'The Dog's A Vapour' is the oldest number here, and has it all: squealing guitar, stalking bass, rattling drums and a blood-hastening baritone recital from Pete Murphy..."
