Released in 1982, this is a live album, compiled from shows across the UK from 1981–82. From the start, Bauhaus were a potent live attraction and this collection gives a flavor of their electrifying live shows.

Press the Eject… features a striking version of John Cale’s “Rosegarden Funeral Of Sores,” a particularly spooky run-through of “Hollow Hills” that out-creeps the studio version on Mask, and the punk rock fuzz-out of “Dark Entries”. Until Crackle's release, this was also the only album to include a version of their classic debut single, "Bela Lugosi's Dead". Washed in feedback and ever-so subtly accelerating and decelerating, this song is the true center of “Goth” mythology.
