Who Killed Mister Moonlight? Bauhaus Black Magick and Benediction ¼ 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 FA He also delves deep into his exploration of. What an exasperating and often silly read this wasI adored Bauhaus in the early 1980s and was rather fond of some of David J's solo output Love and Rockets and the reunited versions of Bauhaus I could do without but fortunately for me there was very little about them in this book Unfortunately for me and for most readers there was very little about well much of anything in this book beyond some protracted nonsense about sigils and fetishes and oooohhhhhh other spooooooky scary dark stuff that should serve as a cautionary tale for those who might want to indulge in too many drugs and too little self awareness I found myself laughing out loud several times during the midsection and then stopped and reminded myself that it wasn't intended to be humorous — that the author took it very very seriously And that thought made me laugh even harderThrough reading this memoir I learned little about Bauhaus beyond the already pretty well established fact that the four band members suabbled and bickered but somehow managed to overcome their personal differences long enough to produce some wonderful influential music and play some amazing gigs I learned very little about the music industry other than the already pretty well established fact that it is corrupt and awful and lends itself to excesses some of which temptations are difficult to resist for young lads and middle aged men who claim they know better I learned very little about David J's background and motivations and personality other than how special and amazing and intuitive he is — well that's what everyone who was uoted as having spoken to him says in the book so it must be trueA couple of the catty anecdotes were amusing but most came off as childishly obvious attempts not to set the record straight so much as to place the blame suarely on someone else's shoulders Alternating between mocking Murphy as dramatic and ridiculous then professing to be concerned as opposed to demonstrating concern for his mental health came off as rather tacky Making snarky comments about how immature and emotional Ash was and then attempting to dismiss such snottiness with a gallantly tossed but you have to love him is rather disingenuous too Having said all that however my biggest gripe about this book has less to do with the author's ramblings and to do with basic proofreading and editing if there even were such things of the manuscript In addition to the expected number of stupid typos generally found in Kindle editions How can a rabbit fur vest malt Oh he meant molt the text was riddled with hideous mistakes in grammatical construction and blatant factual errors Perhaps the author didn't realize he was misspelling the names of people he claimed to admire such as Rowland not Roland Howard Lux Interior not Interia Bettye not Betty Lavette etc but any fool of a proofreader with access to Wikipedia should know that Peter Cook played the devil in Bedazzled and not as the author asserted Bewitched Is there no such thing as fact checking any What a carelessly thrown together piece of work this was — on so many levels characters È eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ David J.

David J. Haskins ✓ 7 free download 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 subseuent and often. I loved this book One of the best autobiographies I've ever read definitely the best music autobiography I'm not even the biggest Bauhaus fan I prefer Love And Rockets and would've loved about them but I do see how focusing on that band would be a shift away from the theme implied by the title David J has done a fine job with 'Who Killed Mister Moonlight' very well written and full of interesting anecdotes and keen occultspiritual insight The descriptions of the Magickal workings with Alan Moore were excellent offering perspective on the dangers and wonders of magic Rare in fact for people to give such up close looks at participation in a Magick ritual Mr Haskins' mystical connection with Genesis P Orridge is very intriguing as well The circumstances surrounding the fire at Rick Rubin's mansion whilst LR were recording there is one of the best bits of the book I thought David's descriptions of his cohorts notably Peter Murphy were eminently fair rather than attacking their characters he simply gives an account of the situation as he saw and felt it Highly recommended
