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.

Redscale – South Grove – Heavy Heavy | Urban Spree

Church of Moon – Swamp Conspiracy – DUSTOWN presents
“A Danger Can Of Thounderous Sludgy Headbangs”
FFO: Stoner, Blues, Sludge, Doom, Punk, Psych & Heavy RAWK!

“REDSCALE deliver large in tone and tonnage, bearing enough resonant mass to sate beast king and listener alike. Colosseum-sized chordage, hippodrome-heavin’ hooks and ziggurat-rockin’ rhythms are hammered and tempered in the grand sonic forge, until a set of eight amplified artifacts emerge. High-octane riffage and groovin’ emissions host a vocal conquest that is potent and total, bringing hard rain to a cold dawn and warm song to all there beyond.”
New album FEED THEM TO THE LIONS available on all digital streaming services, limited edition black vinyl in sleeve case with handmade printed labels now available on Bandcamp:
https://redscale-berlin.bandcamp.com

South Grove are four friends that grew up in Athens, who came together in Berlin to share something they love.
The fundament of their live performances is the energy, on which a mixture of stoner rock riffs and blues rhythms breathe through melodic breakdowns that end up tasting soulfully intense.
2ND ALBUM IN THE MAKING FOR RELEASE LATER IN 2020!
http://southgrove.bandcamp.com

Berlin’s HEAVY HEAVY formed in early 2019 by members from the Ukraine, Finland and the US. Inspired by bands like Royal Blood, All Them Witches, Highly Suspect, Death From Above, they set out to rediscover dirty rock music, armed with gritty riffs and thunderous rhythms. DEBUT SINGLE OUT NOW!

Milk Me presents : Manu Louis + Fantazio

Milk Me proudly presents a night with Manu Louis (BE) and Fantazio (FR) . Amazing showmen , amazing humans !

MANU LOUIS:

“Manu Louis is a Belgian with a subversive spring in his step” BBC
“The Braggart of Kitsch” Libération
“More colourfull than a unicorn vomiting a rainbow” Gonzai
“Pop fantastique et Fantasque” France Culture
“The Stromae of the Underground” Le Soir

Belgium born, Berlin based and Iberian frequenter, Manu Louis travels with a village of electronic instruments and video projections from pop stars or animals to deliver passionate performances that eventually switches gears into an impromptu discotheque.

His music mixes high and low culture to create provocative and decontextualized juxtapositions. His general blueprint remains the same throughout all of his efforts, but the ingredients he uses may vary: from dissident chanson française, genial dilettante, avant-garde composer, new beat, old hit, art-pop & hard bop.

Cream Parade, his new album is a disoriented walk led by synthetizers. It was released in May 2019 on Igloo Records and followed Kermesse Machine (2017) his first album. The last three years Manu performed at over 300 festivals and clubs across Europe and Asia.

Recent collaborations include : visual artists Escif & Systaime, Garrett List’30 piece chamber orchestra Orchestra Vivo, Chinese singer/composer Song Yuzhe (Dawanggang), Spanish instrument builder/musician Truna, electronic weirdos Front de Cadeaux & Too Smooth Christ and Belgian singer Carl Roossens.

FANTAZIO (FR)

An Unidentified Musical Object. An expression often used haphazardly, but in this case, illustrates Fantazio’s universe perfectly. A true showman, a spirit haunted by incredibly extravagant creativity, bringing together the most divers crowds over the course of his performance-like concerts. Covered in tattoos, traumatised for a long time by the figure of Elephant man without having seen the film, his stage name inherited during his punk era, this wild individual is a character out of the ordinary and his music totally uncategorised. As if he and his doublebass where one, his fingers bashed by mishandling the cords, he has travelled with his peculiar music throughout different countries, concert halls, bars, street alleys and is now propelled as one of the most fantastic figures of the Parisian alternative scene. If one had to detect all the different styles in this musical ensemble (one might judge as having no head or tail), you could probably find as much scruffy punk as anxious jazz, hazy hip-hop or truculent childish, dadaist speechs, brassy rock as well as electronic rhythms. A mixture between an aniseed (the drink) brass band and a surrealist experimental work shop, the man-elephant and his Gang playfully dodge expectancies using noises that wander and tranquil sounds to the limits of obliteration. At the centre of these treasures of musical inventiveness, Fantazio narrates, sings with his malleable voice, spits out, roars,howls, becomes a malicious geisha or either a crude crooner, his sudden outburst of words instigate strange stories in a hallucinated storyteller posture.
