Ethan Gold releases 'Bela Lugosi's Dead' cover and video

Out now is the video "Bela Lugosi's Dead" by Ethan Gold. The song is and will remain unreleased from what we heard with no plans to put it on an album or on iTunes.

Here's what he has to say about this video: "I grew up obsessed with New Order, and also, Depeche Mode, Bauhaus, Heaven 17, Gary Numan, and later, Einsturzende Neubauten…. In high school I formed a band that was 3 synths + 1 drummer. The music was in the electropop vein. I started making music after high school again but all my keyboards were in storage and I started playing guitar. I saw Bauhaus live sometime around 1999? in LA and they closed with an endless "Bela Lugosi's Dead." I got home and started playing it on acoustic guitar in the middle of the night, which was ludicrous, the most un-goth instrument, but somehow the mood stayed with me and the guitar. I did it as part of my "Bedroom Closet Covers" series.

I played it over and over on guitar, including at a friend's house, a friend who had a FunMachine, an 1970s organ thing with buttons and drum loops. So I figured I'd make another improbable version, just on this weird old organ synthesizer thing. The version I made was like 30 minutes long… For the video, I edited my FunMachine version to a more palatable length and went with my brother who's a filmmaker and snuck into the Standard Hotel in Downtown LA cuz they have a similar old organ, and we ran around the hotel shooting this video one night until we got thrown out. Ari then edited the fuck out of it."
