"S: Bauhaus were always criticized for being bombastic and I found an Antonin Artaud quote that liberating theatre had to be exressing impulses that were larger than life. Were you inspired by him?
D: Yes, I wrote the lyrics to that song about him on the last Bauhaus album.
S: What did that last line, "those Indians wank on his bones, " refer to?
D: Artaud had gone to Mexico to investigate the Tarahumara Indians. After while they initiated him into their peyote cult, and did the Peyote Dance for him. And his one image of the Indians dancing wildly round a fire, masturbating and throwing dirt at him haunted him for the rest of his life. He seemed to take it personally."
