David J. Haskins (BAUHAUS, LOVE AND ROCKETS) live! Book reading + accoustic performance

11136173_642356822533064_107520501933115837_o

 

We are more than happy to announce that David J., founding member & bassplayer of the british Dark-Wave icons ‘BAUHAUS’ will perform a solo accoustic set and reading from his new book live in Berlin very soon, on the sixth of June!
Plus support from David J – produced artist Michael Berg

*****************

In a breathtaking ride along a flume of ink and sequins, David J. plots the delirious trajectory of a
band who sparked the gothic movement’s second extraordinary emergence from among the
cutthroat history and thousand-year-old churches of Northampton; who invented an epic fin de
siècle mythology and then became it; who pushed their art and their performance far beyond the
boundaries of what was safe or even survivable; and who ably demonstrated that pop music will
send you mad even faster than magic.
Heroic and absurd, scurrilous and profound, Who Killed Mister Moonlight? charts the descent of
four intelligent young men with faces like ruby-eyed dime-store skull rings into a glittering and
very modern maelstrom. Fast, compelling, and disarmingly honest, this is an invaluable account
of a strange and spectral cultural twilight era that we shall almost certainly never see again.
Highly recommended.

—Alan Moore

Beginning with the creation of Bauhaus’s seminal debut hit ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’, David J.
Haskins offers a no-holds-barred account of his band’s rapid rise to fame and glory in the late
70s, their sudden dissolution in the 80s, and their subsequent—and often strained—reunions. In
between, he explores his work as a solo performer, and with acclaimed trio Love And Rockets—
culminating in the devastating fire that ripped through the sessions for their 1996 album Sweet
F.A. He also delves deep into his exploration of the dark arts, drawing together a diverse cast of
supporting characters, including William S. Burroughs, Alan Moore, Genesis P. Orridge, and
Rick Rubin. Bristling with power and passion, music and magick, Who Killed Mister Moonlight?
is a rock’n’roll memoir like no other.

I laughed, then I got scared, then I laughed again. I’ve just read David J. Haskins’ memoirs. I
had expected drugs and sex and rock music; I had not expected the kaleidoscopic parade of
sheer insanity, the loads of blood and punch-ups, fantastic egos, dark arts, creeps and cons,
curses, witches, gurus, psychological warfare, superstars and nameless angels, demons and
doomed types, fire, arrests, legal battles, gods and doors to other worlds, astral projection,
ASTRAL FUCKING PROJECTION; I could go on but you might as well read it. All this scattered
across the rises and falls and rises of David J’s formidable career in music; AND, it’s actually
quite a hilarious read, save all the creepy crawlie bits.

—Black Francis

****************

“(David J. Haskins’) memoir nimbly negotiates his own extraordinary spiritual path
through magic, juju, sorcery and transformative adventures, all delivered with a sly, mordant wit.
MOJO

Wild anecdotes laid out in sharp, page-turning prose.
Playboy

A masterful story teller, with a keen memory, a self-effacing manner, and a dry
wit. A compelling read. Recommended.
MusicScribe

This is the definitive book on Bauhaus, and perhaps the best Post-Punk book
ever written (there are a few now, but this one is most essential).
Post-Punk

‘Who KIlled Mister Moonlight?’ will prove exceptionally delightful to fans of both
the band and fans – in general – of clever, charming, witty, and well-versed
prose.
High Voltage

Memoirs from seminal musicians are becoming more and more common, but this
account is one of the most interesting and intelligent I’ve read. With a refreshing
lack of ego, a healthy sense of humor and a sophisticated, cultured approach to
his art, Haskins provides us with much insight into his musical endeavors while
also delving into the abstract.
New Noise

A gifted writer who possesses both clarity and candour. If everything Haskins
writes is this profound, one can only hope another book is released soon.
Absolute Punk

Who Killed Mister Moonlight? is an autobiographical chessboard – one full of
darkness and light. The contrast between the two offers the reader an utterly
delightful, enchanting and thoroughly memorable reading experience.
Spirituality Today

‘Who Killed Mister Moonlight?’ is a fascinating and humorous look into a singular
life.
Back Beat Seattle

Full of great stories and observations.
Record Collector”

“LA ANTENA” by Esteban Sapir
La Antena brilliantly blends live-action and animation to create a beautiful expressionist vision which pays respectful homage to the early days of cinema whilst also having great fun with its conventions. Director Esteban Sapir’s screenplay conveys an intelligent message about the power of the media to hypnotise and suppress the masses; a warning all too pertinent when it comes to the history of his home country, Argentina.

“HEADOPHONIA”
piece for dance, video, programming, musical instruments and soundscape
A project by „CELSIUS-4“ artist group.

Headaphonia is a procedure to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based only on subjective ideas and formal parallels, which invite the viewer to make personal associations. Multilayered lights and sounds arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality is challenged.Headaphonia deals with the movement of the human body, mind and light. By doing so, new sequences are constantly created which reveal an inseparable relationship between motion and sound.

Orsten Groom’s “CHROME DINETTE” series to be exhibited at Urban Spree

For their last exhibition of the year, Urban Spree Galerie invites the French painter Orsten Groom to exhibit in Berlin his new incendiary series “CHROME DINETTE”. The solo show, his first exhibition in Germany, will open on Friday, October 23rd, 2020.

While being a radically independent artist, Orsten Groom has established himself in a few years as a key player in the young French painting scene, oscillating between alternative circles and museum institutions.

His first retrospective was presented this year at the ACMCM contemporary art centre in Perpignan (France) – at only 37 years old.

The Berlin exhibition brings together over 30 works, presented in two sections:

– the Large Ensemble of 17 paintings “CHROME DINETTE” (accompanied by its proverbial Divan), a danse macabre summoning Sigmund Freud, Moses and sick poodles – under the aegis of Frank Zappa;

– A retrospective selection of Orsten Groom’s emblematic large formats, a genuine «subconscious» journey with Parietal Sarcophagus allures. 

Orsten Groom’s painting is presented as “Post-Historical Cave Art”.

The famous German artist Jonathan Meese said about him: “Orsten Groom comes from the caves and the Middle Ages and keeps history alive in today’s art. He comes from the future“.

Apocalyptic Frescoes, saturated with Creatures drawn from the Memory Styx by Demented Talmudic Investigations, Carnivalesque Recapitulation of History from the Flow of Origins and Art History – His Painting roars on Large Canvases populated with Figures entangled by Mythological and Grotesque Archetypes, Danses Macabres gleaned by a Language Detective, an Amnesiac Epileptic Archaeologist. Its Material is Dense, Volcanic, inhabited like the ancient Livers of a Divinatory Ritual.

«This turmoil is similar to the one I feel in the Grottos of Lascaux or Chauvet, in front of El Greco or Picasso paintings, or, in the 20th century, facing the essential work of Gérard Gasiorowski», writes Olivier Kaeppelin, former Director of the Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul-de-Vence and curator of his recent Parisian Exhibition POMPEII MASTURBATOR.

Orsten Groom experienced in 2002 an aneurysm that left him amnesic and epileptic. He graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2009 and Le Fresnoy in 2011. He is the recipient of several awards: Prix l’art est vivant (2019), Prix de Peinture de l’Académie des Beaux-Arts (2016) and Prix de Peinture Antoine Marin (2015). The reputed paint manufacturer Marin manufactures a colour to his name, the “Pink Groom”.

He is also a musician, author of collections of English cubist poems, filmmaker (2011 Jury Prize for his film BOBOK at the festival Côté-Court) and since 2012 author of the video cycle Les Ballets Russes.

He has collaborated with curators and authors Olivier Kaeppelin and Paul Ardenne, the filmmaker Guy Maddin, the translator and poet André Markowicz, as well as the writer Boris Wolowiec.

ORSTEN GROOM: “MÂÂT” (NOCTURNE) – 210 X 140 CM – OIL ON CANVAS – GXXI

The Opening of the exhibition will be accompanied by a concert by the POODLE MHUND ARKESTRA, formed for the occasion by Orsten Groom, the Magnificent Jimmy Trash & Big Daddy Mugglestone.

Ich bin der Dreck unter deinen Walzen / Ich bin dein geheimer Schmutz Und verlorenes Metallgeld / Ich bin deine Ritze und Schlitze / Ich bin der Autor aller Felgen Und Damast Paspeln / Ich bin Eier aller Arten / Ich bin alle Tage und Nächte / Ich bin der Chrome Dinette / Und du bist mein Sofa. – Frank Zappa

CHROME DINETTE is Burning Divan, Hypnotic Sphinx and Sick Tongue of the Unpronounceable God.

The Berlin exhibition brings together over thirty works, presented in two sections:

Implanted in the heart of Berlin, the Urban Spree Galerie has been for more than 8 years an unavoidable reference in urban arts, understood as a manifestation of a post-parietal art, which inscribes graffiti at the heart of its practice, on a large scale.

The opening will be accompanied by a concert by the POODLE MHUND ARKESTRA, formed for the occasion by Orsten Groom, the Magnificent Jimmy Trash & Big Daddy Mugglestone.
