Announcing Peter Murphy Celebrates 35 Years of Bauhaus at Uptown Theatre Napa on 10/12/13(September 20, 2013)
Napa, CA (PRWEB) September 20, 2013
Its 35 years since Bauhaus dropped Bela Lugosis Dead from a monochromatic Weimar dreamscape into our own universe. The clattering 9 and a half minutes of their debut an audacious, totally Other, anxious-to-the-point-of-internally-hemorrhaging kind of 12 ushered a ground-breaking aesthetics of atmosphere into the UKs post-punk scene and signaled the start of a long, illustrious and varied music career for Peter Murphy.
When the band broke-up for the first time in 1983, the singer set off on a solo career that found him challenging his audiences at every turn. During an astonishingly fertile three decades, he eviscerated expectations and pin-balled a sprawling wasteland of musical styles: from carrying the mantle of 70s Bowie to rivaling New Yorks No Wave generation for seductively grainy, punishing grooves; from theatrical, gothic pop to 2011s anthemic yet intimate and esoteric Ninth.
Few musicians of his stature seem as suited nor as poetically inclined to fulfill T. S. Eliots meditation on the path from life to death, that the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. And, sure enough, Murphy has turned things inside-out once more and returned to the prone theatrics and masochism-flecked cool of the original Bauhaus. This time, to realize the particulars of his somewhat fanatical auteurs vision, he is taking it on the road alone, after the last full-band Bauhaus outing demonstrated that his was not a perspective that everyone could accommodate.
