And here’s where you probably expect me to post the song from Bauhaus. Nope. Here’s a Toronto band called Lemonwedges covering it.
From the band:
Lemon Wedges guitarist Kevin Misan returns to his hometown Northampton UK musically with a cover of fellow Northamptonians Bauhaus’ Bela Lugosi’s Dead.
Kevin mentions, “Yeah, I remember seeing Bauhaus play Youth Clubs, dingy pubs, gigs with John Peel, & one with Magazine back in the day. It obviously left an impression. The whole reason for doing a cover, in my opinion, is to not be like the original, or what is the point? Just play the original, eh? I’m sure Lemon Wedges’ version will divide Bauhaus diehards, but that is to be expected. The track is really Jana’s creation and it’s cool to hear her piano adding a new twist here.”
Meanwhile, Bauhaus’ David J promises to release a new version of the song on Halloween.
