Bauhaus - Kick In The Eye (Searching For Satori)


On this date in 1982, Bauhaus released their first EP, Kick In The Eye (Searching For Satori). The EP also included "Harry" and "Earwax". The 12 inch version also included "In Fear Of Dub". The A side was a remix of a previous single which appeared in another form on their second album, Mask. The other tracks were unique to this record though the three were added to Mask when it was re-released on CD. The EP reached the #45 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The Northampton, England goth band, originally known as Bauhaus 1919, broke up in 1983. Peter Murphy found some success as a solo artist. After some other short-lived projects, the remaining former members of Bauhaus (Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Haskins) formed Love And Rockets. Bauhaus recently reunited to record a new album and tour.
