For this week’s installment of “120 Minutes” Rewind, we present 20 minutes of footage from the May 3, 1992, episode that was co-hosted by Peter Murphy to mark the release of his then-new solo album Holy Smoke. Murphy chats with Dave Kendall about the recording of the album, and footage from a short promotional gig is shown as well.
At one point, Kendall asks Murphy if he’d ever be open to playing with his former bandmates, who, at the time, were active with Love and Rockets. Murphy says yes, although not under the Bauhaus name: “I think it would be one of those terrible reformations that wouldn’t work.” Bauhaus, of course, would reunite in 1998 and 2005, record a fifth album, Go Away White, then fall apart once again — this time seemingly for good.
