Bauhaus, ‘Go Away White’ (Bauhaus Music)

Bauhaus may have godfathered goth at the end of the 1970s, but their combustive early dance singles like “Kick in the Eye” could give most current disco-rock trendies a smackdown.For their first studio disc in 25 years, the English quartet flit from riff-fueled social criticism to anguished balladry, often sounding more like a cross between singer Peter Murphy’s brooding solo efforts and splinter group Love and Rockets’ buzzing groove rock than the dubbed-up glampunk band that birthed both. Yet even a tastefully matured Bauhaus produce enough fractured guitar and howling melodrama to wake the undead.
