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

Tickets: https://bit.ly/35QgXUJ

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.

Lauren Ruth Ward // Berlin

live: Lauren Ruth Ward
support: Emma Cole
doors: 7 pm show: 8 pm Urban Spree

Declared by music critics as a cross between Janis Joplin, Florence Welch and Courtney Barnett, Lauren Ruth Ward is a force of nature. Her lyrics are secrets to strangers, writing about her life’s trajectory sharing both vulnerability and strength delivered with grit and vibrato. Her band flirts with 1950-90’s rock and roll nuances, allowing Ward to release a powerhouse of raw, visceral emotion in their live show. Her critically acclaimed debut album Well, Hell introduced her too a worldwide audience, with accolades from NYLON, Noisey, Consequence of Sound, The Los Angeles Times, Indie Shuffle and more. She has played to sold out crowds in US and overseas, sharing stages with artists as diverse as Keith Urban, Shirley Manson, Eddie Vedder, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Shakey Graves, LP and Liz Phair. Her band capped off last year with a cover of “White Rabbit” in celebration of Grace Slick’s birthday and paid the same respects for Jim Morrison’s 75th by releasing “Happy Birthday Jim”, a 7 song Doors tribute album which included music videos for all 7 tracks. Ward hit the ground running this year releasing 6 original singles and 3 music videos. This prolific catalog includes; “Valhalla”, “Hungry Barber”, “Pullstring”, “We Are Grown Ups”, “Wise Gal” and soon to be released “Super Bullshit”. “Same Soul”, a collaboration between Ward and Desi Valentine for Jack Daniels was also released. Ward is addicted to discovering herself. She joined forces with Chris Hess of SWIMM for their side project called Aging Actress, directed/produced a music video for Alicia Blue’s song “Incognito” and will be releasing a 12 track, 5 music video, body of work in the new year. She is inspired by everything and is most thankful for her guitarist / writing partner Eduardo Rivera for nurturing their creative process.

EMMA COLE
Now is the time for uncomfortable truths and Emma Cole will go where most artists play it safe.
Her voice is smooth as chocolate and bitter like coffee, having been both trained and tattered by life.
Her music is ornate psychedelic realism for a generation eager to go deeper, digging up the common connections within our human nature and delivering her intimate experiences with both ferocity and grace.
The paradox between a great time and music as medicine is ever-present at an Emma Cole show.
An electric performer, Emma will furrow your brow in angst until you release it in dance.
Her performance is loud, honest, and oh-so-groovy. Emma’s latest release, ‘Zachary’, was produced by Rollingchild and written for her late cousin, Zachary. Born less than 24 hours apart, Emma learned the hard way that bonds don’t break even in death and calls out to him:
“This song is a message of peace wrapped inside of the ambiance of life’s thrills.”
Emma Cole’s debut EP “If You Don’t Holler, No One Will Hear” (2018) is an autobiographical account of her struggles as a teenager and young woman.
There’s nothing comfortable about it, and the strength in that release is where true art is born.
That’s where Emma Cole finds her empowerment and boldly transfers it to you, the listener.
Emma’s debut includes a line of songs both energetic and slow burning, with “unimposing lyrics” allowing the listener to dive in and own the experience for themselves.
