Was this the funkiest 'Goth' track ever?
Part of my 'alternative awakening' at the age of fourteen was Bauhaus' second album, Mask.
I was getting into 'indie' music, and the name and the image kind of intrigued me, so I bought the cassette. For many years, it was the album's opening track 'Hair Of the Dog' with its' lyrics that evoked a wander around an asylum, but a few years ago, this came on whilst waiting for Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, this came on. It fitted perfectly with the then prevailing new wave of post-punk, and sounded remarkably fresh.
And the cover art on the 12" single looked cool as anything.
