Cuts You Up – Peter Murphy (1990)
This English musician, affectionately known as the “Godfather of Goth,” started his career in the late 70’s with the band Bauhaus. After their split in 1983 – and a short stint with the band Dali’s Car in 1984 – Murphy launched a solo career, which peaked (in the US) with this album. He’s continued to record and tour regularly over the years, along with collaborating with other artists and bands. Bauhaus reunited in 2005 and toured with Nine Inch Nails before releasing a studio album in 2008. Murphy returned to solo work and released his most recent album in June 2011.
