David J (b. David J. Haskins), the bassist/vocalist for the seminal gothic rock band Bauhaus, launched a solo career in 1983, just as Bauhaus folded. His first solo album, Etiquette of Violence, didn't gather much attention, and he began working with the Jazz Butcher. After releasing two albums (Sex and Travel and A Scandal in Bohemia) with the cult musician, David J recorded his second solo album, Crocodile Tears and the Velvet Cosh (1985). Soon afterwards, J and his Bauhaus cohorts, Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins, attempted to re-form their old band; although it never blossomed into a full-fledged reunion, the trio formed Love and Rockets, releasing their first album in 1985. David J continued with his solo career, releasing David J on Glass in 1986. Following Love and Rockets' surprise hit single "So Alive" in 1989, J released Songs From Another Season; it failed to capitalize on the group's success. Two years later, he released Urban Urbane, his fifth solo album. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
