Another David J Reissue

This time, it's the V for Vendetta EP being released on CD. Rumored release date: June 13, 2006.

No word on tracklist yet. The original release had this tracklist:

V For Vendetta EP
12-inch vinyl
Glass Records Ltd.
glass 12032
Release Date: 1984

This Vicious Cabaret / A VTV Broadcast / V's Theme / Incidental

However, there's a V's Theme (Outro) on the pre-2006 On Glass CDs, so I'm not positive this "original" tracklist is correct.

On Glass has a similar but modified cover from the original record (which was also completely different from the Cleopatra release) as well.

According to davidjonline, you can pre-order from Runt Distribution (although you'll notice that they have incorrectly listed Croc Tears as "Doctor Crocodile And The Velvet Cosh.") The cds are released on the Plain Recordings label.

David J random Web bits

Earpollution interview

From Unnameable Theatre:

David J began his illustrious career as a founding member of Bauhaus, one of the most influential British bands of the 1980’s. They appeared in the movie ‘The Hunger’ alongside and at the suggestion of David Bowie. Following their termination in ‘83, David J joined up with The Jazz Butcher for a brief stint, producing and playing in the group. Then came Love and Rockets. Another highly successful outfit, scoring a gold record with their first release, ‘Ball Of Confusion’. With each successive album outselling the previous one, the band achieved their biggest hit to date, with the single, ‘So Alive’, which reached the number two position in the US charts in 1989. The band then embarked on a distinctly more experimental electronic style, eliciting great critical acclaim for their three albums released during the 1990’s. Love and Rockets played their last shows at the Roxy Theater in LA in 1998.

This was also the year of the ‘Bauhaus Resurrection’, the original band reforming for a sell out world tour in which they broke many house records, including The Palladium in LA, this event selling out two nights in fifteen minutes! A DVD was released featuring their two triumphant nights at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

Throughout David J’s tenure with these bands, he produced several solo albums which have garnered much praise, such as Matt Hoffman’s description of him as “One of the great songwriters of recent times.” His latest solo work, ‘Estranged’ was released in September of 2003 to great critical acclaim.

David J has also collaborated with various other artists, such as celebrated graphic novelist, Alan Moore ( ‘From Hell’, ‘The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ ), renowned author, Hubert Selby Jnr. ( ‘Requiem For A Dream’, ‘Last Exit To Brooklyn’ ), producer, musician, label owner, T Bone Burnett ( ‘Down From The Mountain’ ), MC5 founder, guitarist, vocalist, Wayne Kramer, legendary producer, Hal Wilner, poet, painter, broadcaster, Rene Halkett, City Lights published poet, Jeremy Reed and Mexico’s innovative electronica pioneers, the Nortec Collective. He also co-wrote ‘Strays’, the title track of the new Jane’s Addiction album. ( Perry Farrell describes him as the “avant of the avant-garde.” )

He has also worked extensively as a DJ since 1995, including a residency at LA’s infamous ‘Viper Room’ and is currently resident at The Standard Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.

David J’s creative involvement has always been broader than the purely musical, creating artwork for record covers, posters and merchandise, designing stage lighting and directing videos. He is currently involved in various movie projects, scoring and collaborating on sound design with John Neff ( David Lynch ) and Ego Plum ( The Ebola Music Orchestra. ). In this field he is represented by the administrative company, Bug Music. He has his own publishing company, Urbane Music ( BMI ).

As a visual artist he has exhibited internationally. ‘The Glittering Darkness’, a book featuring his art work was published by Pie Books of Japan in 2003.

In early 2004, David’s first play, ‘Anarchy In The Gold Street Wimpy’ was staged by the acclaimed ‘Dad’s Garage’ Theater Company in Atlanta Georgia. He is currently working on his second play and composing original music for VOICES IN THE DARK: THREE PLAYS BY SAMUEL BECKETT.

In addition to telling you that, we here at would like to wish David a Happy Birthday.

L.A. Remixed

Thanks to sharp-eyed Jose, we have this tidbit:

FRIDAY, JAN 7, 2005 at 7:30 PM

L.A. Remixed takes the concept of the remix to a new level with a video remix of the exhibition L.A: light / motion / dreams accompanied by DJs and live music.

David J - David J is a founding member of Bauhaus and Love and Rockets, and a resident DJ at Downtown L.A.'s Standard Hotel. For this special night, he will be assisted by his seventeen year old son, Joe, in the creation of an ambient soundscape reflecting the theme of the wild interfacing with the urban.

Be la Revolución!

From davidjonline:

Propaganda presents ‘BE THE REVOLUTION’ at The Avalon, Hollywood on Thursday, May 27

A very special launch party for a new monthly club hosted by Shepard Fairey ( Obey / Studio Number One ), David J ( Love & Rockets / Bauhaus ) and Eddie Donaldson ( 'Guerilla One' media events company ). Each event will fly with a fresh theme. On this inaugural night, we shall be invoking the fall of the masters of war with a symbolic burning of the Bush administration. Within this simmering cauldron of revolution, three internationally acclaimed, LA based artists . . . Robbie Conal ( LA Weekly ‘Art Burn’ ) a brilliant draftsman, creator of arch satirical attacks, graphic street bulletins plastered on ad hoc billboards at midnight all over town, Mear-One, The ‘King of Krylon’ graffiti artist who has been ‘getting away with it’ for years as evidenced by his numerous apocalyptic urban chronicles on inner city walls from LA to the Bay and Shepard Fairey, the phenomenal phonomonist, guerilla art bomber supreme. Progenitor of the ‘Obey’ campaign . ( Andre the Giant certainly does have a posse and it’s out to get it’s man! )

All three will come together to create a triptych to express the zeitgeist. A potential art bomb to blast the real ‘axis of evil’ of Cheney, Ashcroft, Rumsfeld and Bush.

Shepard will also be turning in a DJ set along with David J. The decks shall then be employed as a weapon of mass instruction and peace by a big name mystery DJ.

Also in the house, cross cultural, polyglot agit-prop ambassadors, Ozomatli, from the Jurassic 5 camp, scratch master, Cut Chemist and ‘MoveOn’, the phenomenal online grassroots progressive political organization with additional heavy names to be added.

This will be a cross genre grand slam jam to burn down the walls of Babylon not to mention Hollywood and Vine.

More than a club, more than a party, more a revolution and a call to creative arms.


Be there.

Be the revolution!

Pre-order Estranged at and you can receive a free David J cd as a bonus. You only need pay shipping for the free cd. (they're the last two choices at the bottom of the page in the Heyday store - I know, took me awhile to find them, too.)

Also, Judy of Urban Blur has a photograph of David up at

Oooh, chic geek eyewear! 8-)

Finally, David J will be doing an in store appearance at Amoeba Records, Hollywood on October 3 @ 7 pm. Heyday reported that this will be followed by a live show at the Parlour Club @ 11 pm, but neither the PC nor DJ's site mention it, so you might want to call the club.

David J :: Estranged Release

In preparation for the release of Estranged (in September), David has been in the news and on the tongues of many. His name, that is.

Look for him in:

London Daily News
The San Diego Union Tribune
The NY Times (8/25)
The LA Times (8/24)

MTV apparantly made a David J update/announcement on MTV News (8/22). Anyone catch it?

The Estranged Tour will take place next Spring. Look for it!

Next live date: August 30 @ Red Circle, 420 E St., San Diego, CA

Today's musical non-L&R recommendation by bunny: Dawn Landes. Saw her @ Rock in Rockingham. Quite good.

Oh, and did anyone mention that So Alive made it's appearance in Brett Easton Ellis' Rules of Attraction movie? Yes indeedy. It's the background music to one character's masturbation/gay fantasy scene. He's a pillowbiter.

Also, don't miss David's Song Shark notice. I might actually dig up an old beat-style poem I wrote and take advantage. It's tempting.

Finally, on April 28th, he put up a new Floats My Boat list. I'd link to those parts of the site that pertain, but, alas, Mr. J's site is all in Flash and thus unlinkable. You'll just have to poke around until you find the sections I'm talking about.

Contrary to what we reported earlier, there will be no compilation sent with the purchase of David's Mess Up EP from Heyday Records. Also, David had a few corrections to the email that Heyday sent to our own rebekulah (read: we were given faulty information from the record company, honest!):

  • Mess Up does not feature Dave Navarro or Mark Kozelek.
  • The correct song title is Jeanna Fine, not Jenna Fine (you can hear the difference in the song).

    A big thank you to rebekulah for figuring out the confusing details (once I alerted her to the fact that I had received my EP but didn't get any compilation whatsoever). And they were confusing!
