There we were in the pub, watching the England football team getting thumped 4-1 by the Danes and it happened. To Astragal's astonishment, every billboard around the Copenhagan stadium suddenly flashed up with the word Bauhaus. What?

Surely art and design schools in Germany are not so well financed that they can afford sports sponsorship, are they?

And more to the point, surely not even Danish football crowds are so cultured that they 'dig' the inter-war avant-garde scene? Someone piped up with an alternative. 'Perhaps it's the early '90s Goth band?' Suddenly everyone in the pub was ignoring the abysmal footy and talking Bauhaus.

Unfortunately, in the cold light of day the following morning, the answer turned out to be very, very dull. Bauhaus, apparently, is the name of Denmark's answer to B&Q.

What an anti-climax.
