Celebrating 40 years of Bauhaus, Beggars Banquet offer up a colored double vinyl reissue of the band's 1998 'Best Of' Crackle which presents a 16-track selection of their finest works from across their revered catalog including fan favorites, covers, non-album singles and alternate versions. All Music described it as "an excellent overview of the group's brief career, containing all of their essential songs... it's nice that there's finally a thorough retrospective of the groundbreaking goth quartet" while Pitchfork concurred calling it "a fine retrospective of the material that both Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson claim was a major influence of their music." Formed in 1978, the legendary and hugely influential quartet hailed from Northampton, England and is comprised of Peter Murphy, Daniel Ash, David J and Kevin Haskins. The dark, dramatic music that they made, possessed far more force, variety and playfulness than the "founding fathers of goth" tag that is always attached to them. Bauhaus' landmark debut, In the Flat Field, came out towards the end of 4AD's first eventful year. Following the plan at the time, the band then "moved upstairs" to Beggars Banquet, for whom they cut three further albums before dissolving in 1983.
