Further Notes:

Subjects for Further Research [1980s]: Three-fourths of Bauhaus atop the college charts--until "So Alive" in 1989 I refused even to listen to such a horrible idea. First play established that Bauhaus was Peter Murphy's baby (never listened to his college smash either). Closer study revealed that guitarist Daniel Ash writes a good dumb ditty at fast or medium tempo (that means not slow, Dan--got it?). Maybe he could ditch the others (they're brothers, it's a natural) and form a macho Flock of Seagulls.
