Well, this is something that’s bound to appeal even to the hardest Bauhaus fans, in a similar way that Tatu’s cover of The Smith’s “How Soon is Now?” took off . I totally commend the band on their rendition of the classic Bauhaus track here – totally unexpected and refreshing, and not depressing at all. Of course it was recorded for the original soundtrack of the Vampire Academy motion picture, so you can guarantee they made a killing on this, even without taking iTunes sales into account. As much as I love them, I actually like this on par and even better than the majority of their own material. Would totally love to hear what Peter Murphy has to say about this, though I suspect he’d dig it maybe.
