Bauhaus | The Sky’s Gone Out

On October 19th, 1982 the godfathers of goth Bauhaus released their third studio album The Sky’s Gone Out. The album was named after the passage in the final track of LP, which was an exquisite corpse styled collaboration between all band members:

Terry sat up and hugged the green army surplus bag around his skinny waist 
It was cold and the person beside him had faded badly 
Legs apart his eyes lit up the sky’s gone out, the sky, the sky
The sky’s gone out

The album contained the single Spirit, a cover of Brian Eno’s Third Uncle, the iconic Bauhaus tracks Silent Hedges, and All We Ever Wanted Was Everything; and the two funk inspired tracks Swing the Heartache, and In the Night, the former of which was used as the title for the band’s BBC Sessions compilation.
