Released in 1982, this is a live album, compiled from shows across the UK from 1981–82. 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”. Of course, “Bela...” appears here as well, in a luxurious nine-and-a-half-minute version. Washed in feedback and ever-so subtly accelerating and decelerating, this song is the true center of “Goth” mythology.
