"On his solo albums, David J (of Bauhaus and Love and Rockets fame) gets back to his art school roots. His haunting sound collages make use of film noir jazz, snippets of Rubber Soul acoustic pop, the disorienting synth textures of early Pink Floyd and, of course, chiaroscuro Goth shadings. These paintings in sound provide an elaborate backdrop for J's surrealistic spoken word musings." - ROLLING STONE David J began his illustrious career as a founding member of Bauhaus, one of the most influential British bands of the 1980s. Following their termination in `83, David J joined up with The Jazz Butcher for a brief stint, producing and playing in the group. Then came Love and Rockets, who scored a Gold Record with their first release, Ball of Confusion, and their biggest hit to date with the single "So Alive," which reached #2 in the U.S. charts in 1989. The band then embarked on a distinctly more experimental style, eliciting great critical acclaim for their three albums released during the 1990s. On Glass, a revamped version of David J's On Glass compilation, draws from rare 12" EPs released on the Glass label in the mid-`80s. Some of these tracks sound like preparation for his later songwriting with Love & Rockets! Crocodile Tears and the Velvet Cosh, David J's second solo outing originally released in 1985, has folky and jazzy elements in direct counterpoint to the glammy goth thud of Bauhaus. Outstanding songwriting displayed on 13 original tracks and 5 bonus cuts.
