  1. This sounds fantastic for the time-like it was recorded yesterday digitally!

    Many thanks, your site is GREAT!

  2. I was at that concert, 17 years old then. I was very impressed to say the least. I went there for Bauhaus but I fell in love with the opening group: Echo and The Bunnymen, too. Although I never heard of them before! During the punk and post-punk era, most groups didn’t make much of a show as opposed to the supergroups and stadium-rockers of the 70’s. Then there was Bauhaus in that small Markthalle (room for an audience of a few hundred people)…
    Greetings from Hamburg,

    1. You witnessed one of the most influential bands in their beginnings. What a time that must have been! A Monday night in hamburg in 81′! This music and new culture must have been so exciting in Europe back then… So new. Peter Murphy just got better as time went on… I love his early 90’s music as well… All Night Long… I am an American and used to work in Frankfurt and visited Hamburg in 1995… Punk and new wave was still strong and remember the graffiti on the buildings… Special place…
