How Did I Live Without This!?! Dog Bite Covers Bauhaus! Download It Here!

Well of course it sounds perfect! Upon hearing this, my first thought was "Well, Phil Jones made the song his own!"

Dog Bite have covered that old Bauhaus classic "Bela Lugosi's Dead" and it's splendid. Bauhaus were on 4AD at one point and Dog Bite nods in that direction stylistically; this sounds a lot like classic old Wolfgang Press, or maybe the first This Mortal Coil. But the instruments crackle here with a Joy Division-esque simmering fury.

The rare cover that adds something new to the original, this, like that first Dog Bite album, is a haunting bit of musical beauty.

Dog Bite will be releasing a new record in early 2014. For now, follow on Facebook:
