Bauhaus has always rejected the "Gothic" moniker for everything they did and it´s quite right they have done it. This is not "Gothic" at all, not at least in the sense that it became later, this sort of circus for make up and rubber fanged vampires and all that dumped macabre kitsch.

If they were something, that was some sort of sinister aesthetes inspired by the likes of German expressionists, their music attest this imaginary and spiritual frequency. They wandered in the dark as morbid vagabonds observing the Londinum decadence, in the odd shadows from it´s alleys or exploring the unspeakable objects & forgotten stories from the basements and finding the trace of beauty in the view from attics over a city that was losing track of his own past. And all this poetic sense they had combined with the rabid cynicism of punk mudded down by the subtle experimental twist, always granting with this minimalist touch an odd atmosphere amidst the virulence from the music.

If Joy Division was the forefather of post punk, they are the grandads, they added the spices and the sparks to the bleak dimension from that terrible and insatiable youth, they were the burning coal in Artaud's grave, a macabre joke also, a sadistic intent displayed as red roses in the mausoleums or dances in catacombs, they were the scream proclaimed by Camus and Sartre made music. A glimpse of gleaming fire in the vast night from late English romantics. After them, "Gothic" came with some good, some bad, some worst personifications, but faulty, none as vital and poetic as them.
