    Just heard this tune, thought it was awesome, heard of em before, never bothered listening. Any albums worth getting. Post some music in a similar style, need more of this stuff in my life.

    Thought you meant to Bauhaus design, could have helped you out with that.
    Have you tried last.fm to find anything similar to them?

    Was the Bauhaus movement big in Shropshire? I thought it was all Roman ruins...

    Um.. well theres a kind of slow bossanova beat with lots of echoing, slowing down, speeding up, doom guitars, baritone voices, kind of hypnotising.... Look at the picture fucking bat silouhette with Hitlers face on, its not normal to say the least.

    Heres the lyrics

    White on white translucent black capes
    Back on the rack
    Bela Lugosi's dead
    The bats have left the bell tower
    The victims have been bled
    Red velvet lines the black box
    Bela Lugosi's dead
    Undead undead undead
    The virginal brides file past his tomb
    Strewn with time's dead flowers
    Bereft in deathly bloom
    Alone in a darkened room
    The count
    Bela Logosi's dead
    Undead undead undead

    They sound like an autistic sauvant trying to strangle a wet fart on a really cold day on the beach.
