A British alternative rock musician, producer, writer, DJ and the founding member of the highly influential English postpunk band, BAUHAUS and later LOVE AND ROCKETS, David J wrote the lyrics of several Bauhaus songs, including their first single, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”. He sang backing vocals on many songs, and sang lead on “Who Killed Mr. Moonlight?” In 1985, David J, his brother Kevin Haskins, and Daniel Ash, all former members of Bauhaus, formed Love and Rockets. Playing bass guitar and sharing songwriting and vocals with guitarist Daniel Ash, David J’s most notable lead vocal from this period was the hit “No New Tale to Tell”.

David J has released a number of solo albums and singles including the first No. 1 hit single on the newly created Modern Rock Tracks charts, with “I’ll Be Your Chauffeur” in 1990. David J has also appeared on releases by Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra. He co-wrote the track “The Autumn Carnival” with Courtney Taylor-Taylor for The Dandy Warhols’ album, appeared on releases by The Jazz Butcher, Porno for Pyros and Jane’s Addiction and co-wrote the latter’s album title track, “Strays.” His most recent single, “The Day That David Bowie Died” entered the UK vinyl singles chart at number 4 in 2016

He has composed the scores for a number of plays and films, and has also written and directed his own plays. His artwork has been shown in galleries internationally, and David has been a resident DJ at venues such as the Knitting Factory and the Downtown Standard Hotel in Los Angeles and played in various venues across the nation and the world.

Save the date: September 29 and 30 for ATTRITION

Share

My first experience with Attrition was right after high school in about 2000, in a car driving too fast down the California coast to a goth club in Los Angeles, at earsplitting volume, with two LA rivitheads of some ill repute. The music went from something abrasive and aggressive, maybe Snog or KMFDM, to something slow and chiming that I thought should be more properly waltzed to in the 16th century, and then the lyrics kicked in and I was immediately in love. Later, I discovered other favorite songs: “Mercy Machine,” “Cosmetic Citizen,” and the fantastic album “Smiling, at the Hypogonder Club,” but “A Girl Called Harmony” still has a special place in my heart. 

For 37 years, Attrition, a UK band of renown, has been blending the old, the new and the weird in unexpected ways. How to describe the sound that Martin Bowes, Julia Niblock and their compatriots produce? It’s as if a couple of misfits from the 17th century Renaissance era fell into a twisting time warp, picking up random bits and general weirdness from the 1920s jazz era and the 1960s psychedelic era before emerging fully-formed from the womb during the ’80s birth of raw, experimental electronica, industrial and post-punk.

The electro-acoustic eccentricity of Attrition hasn’t let up over the years, and I am thrilled to see them in Hawaii for the first time – more so, I’m honored to be opening for these perpetual pioneers of sound and mood that have influenced so many of the bands known and loved by my generation of darklings.  See you there!
