Bauhaus is a band formed in Northampton, United Kingdom in 1978, popular in the 1980s. The band took their name from the German Bauhaus
art movement, originally going by the name Bauhaus 1919, dropping the latter portion within a year of the band’s formation. Bauhaus combined
a number of influences (punk, glam rock, funk, and dub), to create a gloomy, but very passionate sound which appealed to many looking for
something new after punk.
