Interspersed with his solo material, Murphy and his bandmates played numerous Bauhaus songs (of which ‘Stigmata Martyr’ was my favourite) throughout the ninety-minute set. The first song of the first encore was a wonderful cover of ‘Hurt’ by Nine Inch Nails, performed by just Murphy and his guitarist in a wonderfully quiet fashion. This was followed by ‘Too Much 21st Century’ a recent Bauhaus track from the Go Away White album that was put together when the band re-formed briefly a few years ago. I thought ‘Cuts You Up’ and ‘Deep Ocean Vast Sea’ were going to close off Murphy’s performance, but a steady assault of cheers and applause from the crowd pulled the band out for a second encore.
