I woke up this morning in a very Nine Inch Nails kind of mood. While going through my routine when that happens (One day I’ll explain what it all entails), I remembered there was a really cool collaboration that occurred in 2006 between Nine Inch Nails and Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy. At the time, Bauhaus was opening for NIN on the second leg of the With Teeth tour. During this time, there were special radio broadcasts they did together. Here are a handful of these wonderful collaborations.
One of the coolest songs on the debut album from Dead Cross (the new band featuring Mike Patton and Dave Lombardo) is their cover of the Bauhaus classic “Bela Lugosi’s Dead.” Hearing their version is like hearing the song for the first time again. Mike Patton’s vocals on this song is perfect. The musical arrangement from Justin Pearson, Michael Crain and Dave Lombardo is stellar, Anyways, enough with me blabbing about it. Take a listen for yourself and do yourself a favor and buy Dead Cross’s album!
