Bauhaus Issue Live Set Online

Seminal goth group Bauhaus released a live album, Gotham,

in MP3 format through EMusic.com on Tuesday (Nov. 9), the same day it was

scheduled for release as a double CD. "Double Dare," taken from the set,

was made available for free download at the site Friday (Nov. 5). Recorded

at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, on last year's Resurrection

reunion tour, the 17-song Gotham also includes a studio cover of

Dead Can Dance's "Severance," according to EMusic. Bauhaus have

also released MP3 versions of early work, including the single "Bela

Lugosi's Dead," for sale through EMusic. EMusic recently acquired

digital-distribution rights for the Metropolis label, which released

the CD version of Gotham.
