Heroic and absurd, scurrilous and profound, Who Killed Mister Moonlight? charts the descent of four intelligent young men with faces like ruby-eyed dime-store skull rings into a glittering and very modern maelstrom. Fast, compelling, and disarmingly honest, this is an invaluable account of a strange and spectral cultural twilight era that we shall almost certainly never see again. Highly recommended. -Alan Moore, author of V For Vendetta and WatchmenVom Verlag:
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 subsequent - and often 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 F.A. He also delves deep into his exploration of the occult, drawing together a diverse cast of supporting characters, including William S. Burroughs, Alan Moore, Genesis P. Orridge, and Rick Rubin. Bristling with power and passion, music and magic, Who Killed Mister Moonlight? is a rock'n'roll memoir like no other.
