WHO KILLED MISTER MOONLIGHT? // SUPPORT DAVID J BOOK TOUR

My friend David J from Love and Rockets and Bauhaus has launched a Kickstarter to tour his new book “Who Killed Mister Moonlight?” internationally which will include readings and stories as well as a Q&A and live music.   Here’s more about what I had to say about it:

Black Thoughts-White Light
I knew David J to be a fantastic musician and visual artist, but it turns out that he is also a gifted writer with a sharp style and sly wit. “Who Killed Mister Moonlight?” is not just a revealing account of the evolution of Bauhaus and Love and Rockets,  peppered with stories about David’s interactions  with The Clash, John Lydon, Joy Division, Iggy Pop, Rick Rubin and other heroes of mine, but an electric journey through the struggles and tensions of the creative process. David J has a dark side, but he’s no one dimensional Goth, his shades of black manifest in remarkably varied ways in his art, and in his writing, as wicked black humor.   What is most compelling about this book is the way David articulates the inspirations, irritations, triumphs, and defeats that are inherent to creativity… the alchemy of turning black thoughts into white light.

OBEY 25 Year Anniversary Collection

When I made the first OBEY sticker in 1989, I never thought I was beginning a project that would inspire and permeate most of my art career for the next 25 years and counting.  It’s a surreal reality to be celebrating 25 years of Obey and I’m thankful for my partners at Obey Clothing to help tell my story.

INTERPOL // EL PINTOR

Interpol has been a favorite band of mine since their first album came out 12 years ago. I got to work with them on some projects for their second album “Antics” which was a lot of fun. They just came out with a new album called “El Pintor” which is great. The band has always had a great visual presentation in terms of their fashion, graphics, and videos, but I think the song and video for “All the Rage Back Home” is especially good. Check it out and catch them on their current tour if you can.
