Now that all and sundry have fallen off the David Bowie tribute band wagon, I thought I’d do my own.”

Murphy, who is no stranger to the work of Bowie, had cemented the comparisons between himself and his band Bauhaus by covering Ziggy Stardust for a single release on October 5th, 1982.

The single release featured on its sleeve the band’s usage of the Bauhaus art school logo combined with Bowie’s Aladdin Sane Lightning Bolt. It is interesting to note that the Art Museum, Martin Gropius Bau, in Berlin named after Architect Martin Gropius, hosted a David Bowie exhibition in 2014. Martin Gropius was the great-uncle of architect and Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius.

Bowie is still celebrated for his “residency” in the city, where he completed his Berlin trilogy of albums, Low, Heroes, and Lodger.

After leaving Berlin, Bowie would then adopt a new-wave persona for his next LP Scary Monsters, and appeared on Saturday Night Live wearing a Bauhaus art inspired inspired Tuxedo along with German singer Klaus Nomi.

In 1983, Bauhaus the band would share the screen with David Bowie in the Tony Scott Film The Hunger, performing their debut single Bela Lugosi’s Dead at the infamous nightclub Heaven, while Bowie and Catherine Deneuve hunt for victims—one of which was played by actress Anne Magnuson (a close friend of Klaus Nomi and a integral part of the New York post-punk scene).

Peter Murphy and bassist David J are currently on their US leg of their world tour, celebrating  Bauhaus’ 40th anniversary by performing the band’s debut LP In The Flat Field in its entirety.

After the close of the tour, Murphy begins his two-week residency in San Francisco, where the Bowie Tribute concerts is scheduled for Tuesday, March 26, and 27th 2019 at San Francisco’s The Chapel.
