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.

Milk Me presents: Catnapp Break Release Rave

Catnapp released her first LP “BREAK” on Monkeytown Records. The record includes collaborations with Modeselektor “The Mover”, EL PLVYBXY & Doxxed who remixed “Lengua”.

To celebrate, we planed a rave together with Catnapp & friends

CATNAPP (Monkeytown Records)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nb2WhlwVETUCatnapp (Amparo Battaglia Lopez) combines R&B, rap, breakbeat, pop, drum and bass and other genres resulting in an intense and nostalgic atmosphere with heavy beats

MAAY (DJ SET)
https://soundcloud.com/jeromemixfileseries/jerome-mixfile-457-maayMAAY is an Argentinian Dj/producer from Buenos Aires, based in Berlin. Her sets include an hybrid and deconstructed style between dark atmospheres, latin rhythms and emotional trance melodies. She started Djing in Trrueno venues and hosting different rave parties. She debuted in Berlin at Acud and recently joined Catnapp as her official DJ.

MR. MANIC
https://mrmanic.bandcamp.com/Mr. Manic (they/them/she) is a nonbinary identifying rapper, DJ, and performance from Philadelphia based in Berlin. They DJ and perform with the drag collectives House of Presents, House of Living Colors, and Venus Boys and with the spoken word performance project Queerdos. Their latest album, MKULTRAVIOLET was released in the Spring of 2019

BABii
https://soundcloud.com/babiibabiibabiiBABii produces incredibly forward-thinking electro tinged pop/R&B which features skittering beats and incredibly thick, layered synths with heavy bass with a semi industrial feel to them. The lyrics are dark, yet the vocals are sweet and despite its incredible pop hooks the whole LP drips with a sentiment of loss and abandonment. BABii wowed SXSW this year playing 7 shows in 5 days and being compared to everyone from Grimes to FKA Twigs and while those comparisons give you a jumping off point, they also feel lazy as BABii definitely inhabits her own unique world.

presents

⊙ TRUMANS WATER ⊙
(San Diego – California)
https://trumanswater.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/trumanswater
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trumans_Water
The Water took shape in ’91, when the Fender-bending brothers Branstetter hooked up with singer-guitarist-catalyst Glen Galloway; soon San Diego had a rollicking avant-rock angle to its music scene in TW, the kind of band that, say, could righteously open for/tour with the Boredoms or Stereolab (Trumans did). But after their self-made albums Of Thick Tum, Spasm Smash, the Godspeed tetralogy and numerous singles had sent their sounds worldwide, Glen exited to marry, concentrate on his Holy Spirit-stoked Soul-Junk group and stay in SD as Trumans continued touring, eventually moving to Oregon. What amazed many was how quick a study then-bassist Kevin B. proved to be when Glen G. passed on lead vocal and co-guitar-ing duties. Empowered, the younger Branstetter picked up the torch, carrying it still. From time to time, Galloway would return as a guesting full member to augment Trumans albums.
Trumans Water never really went away. But the veteran American spazz-rock/squiggle-core group’s live shows have been rare in recent years (outside of the Pacific Northwest, that is.) TW has become increasingly more obscure as well, relatively unknown to untold pods of younger blog-rockin’ folk sharp-eared discerners, who might well luv TW were they to know TW still deemed legendary by those who, a) remember Trumans’ halcyon days in America’s early/mid-90s guitar-rock underground;
b) recall the life-altering praise from abroad, with the late great all-time tip-top good-taste-making radio
DJ John Peel championing them over international airwaves, and the Melody Maker making this pithy 1993 assessment: Sonic freaks with a lust for life, Trumans Water make Pavement sound like U2. TW has continued, doing it all even with key co-founding brothers living miles apart: lanky guitarist-vocalist Kirk Branstetter in Portland, Oregon, where the band relocated in 1995 (they formed in San Diego in 1991); and savvy vox/gtr/bass/etc. guy Kevin Branstetter, who married French and lives south of Paris w/ wife and offspring (and is known to offer pro road/liaison services for indie/outie music types touring lEurope).
Trumans is rounded out by versatile bassist/veteran cohort Mike Coumatos (also known as 50% of fine ongoing Portland party-rock duo the Bugs) and drumming dynamo Geoff Soule (of Fuck and Sad Horse). The TW identity has remained: the ever-active, wildly clawing, rough-toned brace of guitars; the sour-sweet sing-shout screech-croon ‘n’ power-yowl; the explosive rhythms, herking here and jerking there, none too predictable anywhere. And some fun sound-play with thoughtfully goofin’ verbiage.
TW has been recording over the past years but not releasing anything. They are currently assembling some of those songs for release previous to tour. What’s more, Trumans is planning to catch up any interested parties in coming months by digitally re-releasing the 1st four elusive albums of the Trumans Water discography. Their coming tour will be a celebration of those first four albums along with new material.

⊙ TRIGGER CUT ⊙
(Stuttgart – Germany)
https://triggercut1.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/Triggercut-742161089469022
Trigger Cut are hard hitting to say the least. The drums pack an intense energy behind the high guitar tones which allow for the bass to really punch through. The result is a sound dealing nothing but brute force without the need for any over-engineering and a uniquely raw punk rock experience. The rough and ready vocals perfectly round off the resounding tension with only small doses of any form of melody.

⊙ FLEUVES NOIRS ⊙
(Lille – France)
https://fleuvesnoirs.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/FleuvesNoirs
Fleuves Noirs is an experience of collective madness in a form of a great tribal ritual. The dance is led by a tribal beat with incantory and hallucinated vocals, all leading to an inevitable chaos. Fleuves Noirs performances are like an Ayahuasca ritual, they don’t leave anyone unscathed.

⊙ DEAD SENTRIES ⊙
(Berlin – Germany)
https://deadsentries.bandcamp.com
https://www.facebook.com/DeadSentries
Minimalistic. Ritualistic. Hypnotic. Dead Sentries play edge of your seat, noisy, outsider punk rock. Focusing on mesmerising rhythms, pulsating basslines and discordant, razor sharp guitar, Dead Sentries are brash and compelling. The music swaggers, struts and swings. The sound is visceral and primal.
