David J
Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction once described David J as the Avant of the Avant-garde. Never was a truer word spoken

A founder member of one of the most influential bands since The Velvet Underground; namely BAUHAUS. Bauhaus spearheaded the post-punk Alternative music scene of the early ‘80’s with a string of
innovative albums and singles, including, for many, perhaps their defining moment, a song that is ranked as a classic and feasibly the pinnacle of the entire Gothic scene and beyond, the nine minute plus
epic slab of industrial dub that is 'Bela Lugosi’s Dead', featuring the lyrics of David J. Check out the astonishing opening scenes of Tony Scott’s stylish Vampire flick 'The Hunger' to witness Bauhaus in all
their dark glory, performing that very song whilst David Bowie and Catherine Deneuve stalk the disco for new flesh. Appearances on TV shows such as Top Of The Pops, The Old Grey Whistle Test and Riverside coupled with an electrifying live show propelled Bauhaus to the upper reaches of the UK charts before reaching their zenith in the summer of ’83 and imploding, shattering into fragments of individual talent. It was that implosion that inadvertently gave rise to David's long and varied solo career. He was the first of the four members of
Bauhaus to actively make that tentative step outside of the comfort zone of his original band by forming an unusual alliance with poet / painter, Rene Halkett, an original member of the very movement from which the band took it's name, fusing poetry with music for the highly acclaimed 'Nothing' /'Armour' single which was released on the 4AD label in 1981. A second collaboration in ‘84, with graphic novelist and highly acclaimed author Alan Moore entitled 'V For Vendetta' resulted in a now very highly sought after 12” E.P. A big screen adaptation of Moore’s graphic novel, adopting the same title, was one of the blockbusters of 2005.

David's debut solo album, 'Etiquette of Violence' was released in 1983, followed two years later by 'Crocodile Tears and The Velvet Cosh'. Both albums being exemplary of his burgeoning talent asa songwriter. Next
came a brief stint producing and playing bass with another underrated songwriting great, Pat Fish AKA The Jazz Butcher. This pairing producing two excellent albums.David then regrouped with two of his former Bauhaus band mates, guitarist, Daniel Ash and drummer, Kevin Haskins to form the hugely successful Love And Rockets, whose debut single hit gold status in Canada, followed by a top three US single with 'So Alive' which the band capped with a million selling album and sold out stadium tours. A self-imposed hiatus meant that David could now resume his on/off solo career. The heartfelt and intimate 'Songs From Another Season' and the sophisticated 'Urban Urbane' being the result. The former producing the first single to top the newly forged US Alternative Charts, namely, 'I'll Be You Chauffeur'. Solo endeavors were once again put on hold in ’98 when Bauhaus was gloriously resurrected, initially three dates were booked at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, such was the demand for tickets however that all three shows were sold out in fifteen minutes! The success of these initial dates ultimately led a full blown world tour.2003 saw the release of another solo album, the achingly beautiful and poignant, 'Estranged'. Then came a second rebirth of Bauhaus which resulted from a spectacular appearance at Palm Springs’ Coachella Festival in 2005 where a memorable inverted 'hanging man' stage entrance by vocalist Peter Murphy ensured their performance was not only heralded as the event of the festival but would forever be included as a stand out init's annals .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. 2011’s 'Not Long For This World' album, featured a set pertaining to the subject of mortality and achieved high critical acclaim. This year will see a thirty year anniversary reissue of that solo debut ,'Etiquette Of Violence' which will feature a lavish two disc set. In between his own works, guest appearances and production duties, David has also written and directed various stage productions including the spectacular multi-media staging of 'Silver For Gold' (The Odyssey Of Edie Sedgwick) which originally went up at the Met
Theatre in Hollywood in 2008 and was then re-staged three years later at the celebrated REDCAT also in LA.
David J’s new solo record, 'An Eclipse of Ships’ ( which he describes as: “. . . essentially a journal of the heart and a paean to Woman as muse.” ) will be released this year ( 2014 ) and in support of the project,
David will be touring extensively with his new band, The Gentleman Thieves.

XAMBUCA
XAMBUCA is a fictional group with no face or leader. Most of its product thus far is vapor, and will remain unavailable to the public. All accounts of its claimed existence is based on false sightings, rumors and here say. XAMBUCA does not really exist in the material space time continuum. Instead, XAMBUCA conceptually feeds on the subconscious figment of a host's imagination; a host that has a tendency to encounter its name or symbols in passing by mere coincidence. XAMBUCA owns an aspect of yourself as you have decided to be exposed to it and there is no turning back now.... you MUST watch and listen.
