Bauhaus, Push the Eject and Give Me the Tape
For a brief period of time during the early to mid 1980's, the ultimate in pale white kid music was a new offshoot of post-punk that the critics were just then beginning to call "Goth Rock." At it's prime, Goth Rock was (much like its listeners) dark, depressing, and yet frighteningly attractive. However, that prime didn't last long beyond the style's infancy. As a music, Goth Rock soon began to spiral downwards into pits of self-indulgence. It's once meaningful lyrics started to become inundated with "poetic" discussions about mysticism and the like, which were at times boring and at others just downright laughable. The stage performances began to turn the way of Kissesque garish costumed melodrama. Possibly even more detrimental to Goth's reputation, was how as a culture, it began to become associated with that creepy kid you saw walking down the hallway with the fishnets and the big gaudy cross hanging across his chest (ironically, that kid probably listened to Ozzy Osbourne, but that's another story...). Basically, as soon as it all started taking itself too seriously, it became a joke.
Looking at all this, it is easy to see why so many people began quickly forgot Goth Rock's startlingly impressive origins. In their 1979-1983 prime, bands like Joy Division, Sioux and the Banshees, and The Cure were able to construct sorrowful soundscapes that were addictive at the same time as they were powerful, with lyrics that were introspective, intensely personal, and suprisingly intelligent coming from boys who wore eye makeup. Arguably the quintessential Goth Rock band from this "golden age" was Bauhaus, an English based band, who many have called the founding fathers of Goth.

I enjoy the music on this CD immensely. PRESS the EJECT... is a recording of various performances of the band BAUHAUS from the early 1980s. BAUHAUS may not have invented gothic rock, even so, they were the first to popularise it and no band since has surpassed them. Their songs conform to a style of fiction characterised by the use of desolate or remote settings and macabre, mysterious, or violent incidents, the very essence of gothic art. I find the soundscape created by Mr Daniel Ash fascinating. There is very little melodic component as he creates an overwhelming aural sensation. Mrrs J and Haskins provide an industrial strength rhythm section which allows Mr Ash the room to create these sensory assaults. Mr Peter Murphy sings in a sometimes detached, sometimes emotional, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, sometimes phonetic, ecclectic style. This live performance is more amazing to me because this complicated presentation would be difficult to control in lesser hands. One of my interests in this CD is in two songs which present spiritual issues, ROSE GARDEN FUNERAL of SORES & STIGMATA MARTYR. RGFOS is a poem by Mr John Cale which presents a poignant and insightful view of the difficulties of maintaining a spiritual connection in a secular world. SM is in the style of a Medieval Meditation. The Gothic period is generally from the 12th through the 16th centuries. Although these types of prayers are foriegn and perhaps, unsettling to our current sensibilities, BAUHAUS has very accurately portrayed a common form of prayer practiced by well respected mystics such as Mother Julian of Norwich (1342-1443). SM is an exceptional example of the band. Mr Murphy gives a passionate performance while Mr Ash expands the sonic limits of his instrument. Mrrs J and Haskins are in lock.Read more ›

The greatest live rock album ever made.
Simple as that.
Remember, when the sound man says "Press the eject and give me the tape out of it." that is the end of the record. The rest of it was added for the CD. It is good but I usualy stop at the sound man because I am old and I had the record and that is where the record is suposed to end.

Press the Eject and Give Me the Tape, perhaps the best recording ever released by Bauhaus, is a must have for any soul who feels a draw to the art of gothic punk. The live feel of Bauhaus on the CD is just about as good as being there when it all happened for those of you too young or who were unable to ever see Bauhaus live. A perfect addition to any collection of gloom and goth, and a great start if its all new to you.

I've loved Bauhuas since 1983. I have 6 of their CD's. Obviously then, I am biased.

"Press the Eject and Give me the Tape" is a tremendous piece of work. Without question, Bauhaus can replicate their sound and then some in a live forum. If you are familiar with Bauhuas, that is no small feat. Their sound is rich and haunting; one would speculate that they could only do what they do in a studio. This CD proves otherwise.

I am partial to "Rose Garden Funeral of Sores." Regardless of my preferences, this CD is full of amazing sounds, music, and lyrics. The songs range from haunting to absolutely mind blowing in the energy.

If you are a Bauhuas fan, you'll love and cherish this CD. I don't understand how you wouldn't. That is why I give it five stars.

I really doubt that someone, who is not familiar with Bauhaus, would be reading these reviews. If you've never heard their music, you may want to start elsewhere, i.e. "Burning from the Inside."
