The original pressings probably sound better. I also have a pressing of the Sky's gone out from Japan which sounds awesome. Joy Division has some new 180g vinyl out now too I believe.

Yeah, soundwise not great. We saw Bauhaus at Cinema Room in Ft Lauderdale area 2005 or 2006 and Peter just stood at the microphone singing. The music was fabulous and I gained a greater appreciation of their musicianship but there was no energy in the performance. Contrast this with the Gotham concert where Peter was bouncing around the stage and was totally rockstar cool.
Peter was at Blender in NYC a few weeks ago but we were at The Birthday Massacre / Mindless Self Indulgence show. Heard from friend that the Blender show was good.
