David J (b. David J. Haskins), the bassist/vocalist for seminal gothic and alternative rock bands Bauhaus and Love and Rockets, launched a solo career in 1983, just as Bauhaus folded.
A founder member of one of the most influential bands since The Velvet Underground, Bauhaus spearheaded the post-punk Alternative music scene of the early ‘80s with a string of innovative albums and singles.
A highly acclaimed songwriter, often personal, often observational but not without flashes of influence from the dark underside of both theatre and literature – David has exquisitely captured incisive portraits of artists such as Jack Kerouac, Joe Orton, Antonin Artaud and more recently Elliot Smith, Jeff Buckley, Spalding Gray and Hank Williams.
