Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Bauhaus: Peter Murphy (vocals); Daniel Ash, Kevin Haskins, David J.
  • Engineers include: Mike Hedges, Kenny Jones, John Etchells.
  • In 1981, Bauhaus had no competition in the field of "Goth" music and could afford to experiment a little. MASK is the group's second album, and it contains some of their best work. There is the groove of "Dancing," a track that contains one of the album's two curious references to ballet dancer Nijinsky (the other is in "Muscle In Plastic"), and the creepy "Hollow Hills," its bass-driven skeleton decorated with distant peals of feedback and sparse drumming. The title cut features Peter Murphy singing over a backwards music track that adds considerable menace to the bizarre lyrics.
  • Originally 10 songs long, the CD adds five supplemental tracks gathered from singles. These extra tracks include the comparatively straightforward white reggae of "Harry" and a weird 4-part song wherein each band member takes the lead. Bassist David Jay sets the falsely soothing tale of a trial to the rattle of a drum machine. Murphy's piece is a guide to making fish cakes (?!). Drummer Kevin Haskins provides a series of such suggestions as "Avoid risks, stay at home," and guitarist Daniel Ash contributes a short acoustic guitar piece with backwards vocals.
Professional Reviews
Record Collector (magazine) (p.91) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[MASK] remains a definitive statement, from the Apollo launch of 'Hair Of The Dog,' crowd-pleasing 'Dancing' and 'Muscle In Plastic' to the emotive 'Hollow Hills'..."
