“[David Bowie is] incredibly charismatic and charming. He was real nice because he made a decision to hang out with the band [during the filming of The Hunger]. He was identifying with us because he was in a young band once. There was a jukebox outside his dressing room. He came out, put on a record, and he would be dancing in front of us.

There was one disappointment. We had this great day and then he left with his little entourage, and he never said goodbye. We were all looking crestfallen. Then the doors crash open and it's him and says “Guys I'm sorry, I meant to say goodbye and I wanna come and see you play live." And then he went. And that made it.

It's funny, Peter avoided him. He was so overcome. So it was me, Danny, and Kevin with Bowie. Peter's funny and complicated. Sometimes he's full of bravura. That's a mask - he's masking his shyness. So he hid away.”

Re: Bauhaus new [re: ziggfried]  

"My daughter is starting to get into bands like the Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers… and she’s realizing that all these people are very interested in what her father does. And so we’ve recently had conversations where she has asked me why Kurt Cobain killed himself and is he okay. She’s grown quite attached to him. She’s also been listening to a lot of Bowie’s old stuff and T-Rex’s old stuff and she has said, “Ah, so that is the person you liked when you were my age.” I’ll say, “Yeah”. So it’s cool."

Re: Bauhaus new [re: ziggfried]  

Q: This year marks the 30th anniversary of Ziggy Stardust. What is your opinion on that character and that period?

A: That secret lunch time, art room meeting by the two weird 5th years, listening religiously to music that sounded like a siren to the pubescent us; an album called Hunky Dory, with a beautiful yellow haired lady on the cover, with a boy teen-age voice. And later that day on the way home on the school bus - that astonishing black and white photo that Joe Herbert showed me of this David Bowie, who looked like an angel, and who's balls peeked out from under the hem of the petite body suit, playing an acoustic guitar. "WHAM BAM THANK YOU MAM". Sooo Cosmic et sooo...oooo sensuous, that we didn't know what time it was for years (or was it five?).

2005 interview with bassist David Jay new [re: EJSunday]  

The following is an exerpt from an article by Martin Siberok entitled "Back From The Undead", published in the Nov. 10-16 (Montreal) hour. Siberok had spoken with Bauhaus bassist David Jay over the phone during Bauhaus' s Denver tour stop.

As far as their version of David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust - and biggest U.K. chart hit - Jay says there was talk of not including it on this tour. However, on the first night Ash couldn't resist playing the opening chords and the rest of the band just followed along, so it's been added to the set.

"Originally, Ziggy Stardust was a spontaneous thing we did in the studio, but we never considerd it a releasable track", explains Jay. "When we first started, people would point out the similarities of Peter's vocals with early Bowie. We tried to play it down, but then we said let's just go for it. We delighted in the cheekiness and perversity of releasing the song as a single".

"I don't think [Bowie] liked [Bauhaus' cover of "Ziggy Stardust"]...but it was pure love for him. It was also us kicking against the vitriol in the press. You called us Bowie copyists, so this is the ultimate irony."
