Confessions of a California goth: Bauhaus’ David J pines for the clouds

 

 

This week, we caught up with musician David J, who was both the bassist in the goth rock sensation Bauhaus as well as bassist and vocalist of the ’80s band, Love and Rockets. A Los Angeles resident, he admits that he feels uncomfortable with the current political situation in the United States, confessing, “it’s in a sorry state, and I’m rather repulsed by it.”

David J talks about his new solo album and how he aims to pursue more collaborative work in the future: “I’m always full of ideas, and more creative now than ever.”

Catch David J live with Simon Goff and Paul Wallfisch, in Berlin on June 9. If you can’t make it we’ll be covering the event on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
