In The Flat Field
Celebrating 40 Years of Bauhaus. The band's iconic debut studio album, originally released in November 1980 by 4AD. Bronze vinyl. Remastered in HD from analog tape.
Following a 30-date tour, Bauhaus went to Southern Studios in London to record their first album. The band had a clear conception of how they wanted the record to sound; hence, they opted to produce it themselves.
While most of the album was completed with the planned release date of September 1980, the group found it difficult to record a version of "Double Dare" as good as the one they performed on John Peel's BBC Radio 1 programme. Bauhaus applied to the BBC to use the Peel sessions version, but due to obstruction from the Musicians Union, the process took over a month.
