About the Author

David J. Haskins (aka David J.) was born in Northampton, England, in 1957, and was a founder member of Bauhaus, the highly influential band that spearheaded the post-punk alternative-music scene of the early 80s with a string of innonative albums and a powerfully dramatic live presentation. Following the band's split in 1983, he embarked on a long and varied solo career that has produced a series of critically acclaimed albums and various avant-garde collaborations. He has also written and directed a number of stage productions, including the spectacular multimedia event Silver For Gold ( The Odyssey Of Edie Sedgewick), and The Chanteuse And The Devil's Muse, a surrealistic investigation into the notorious black Dahlia murder mystery, plus several screenplays (with writing partner Don C. Tyler), and his visual art has been exhibited internationally.
