Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Mr. Midnight

Here's something that everyone should just love. It doesn’t really fit into any mold so no matter what you’re particular musickal taste, this one should be unique but enjoyable. It comes from the fertile mind of David J & cohorts.

David John Haskins is best known to most as David J, bassist & founding member of Bauhaus & Love and Rockets. David J wrote the lyrics of several Bauhaus songs (including their first single, "Bela Lugosi's Dead"). He sang backing vocals on many songs & sang lead on "Who Killed Mr. Moonlight?"

He began writing music for his planned solo career while still in Bauhaus. When the band broke up in 1983, he released the dark Etiquette of Violence & Crocodile Tears and the Velvet Cosh, played bass on two Jazz Butcher albums (A Scandal in Bohemia & Sex and Travel), both of which he also produced. While working with Jazz Butcher, he hooked up with JB saxophonist Alex Green & formed this very short-lived band The Sinister Ducks, with Green & comics writer Alan Moore (with whom he collaborator on other projects).

The Sinister Ducks is: Capt. José da Silva (David J) – guitar & bass;
Max Akropolis (Alex Green) – saxophone; & Translucia Baboon (Alan Moore) – narrator.

The record contained a comic insert by Alan Moore & Lloyd Thatcher illustrating the song "Old Gangsters Never Die". I have included the comic with the music.
