Who Killed Mister Moonlight? (Bauhaus, Black Magick and Benediction) is a candid memoir of life revolving around David J. Haskins' tumultuous experiences with the pioneering post punk / gothic / art band, Bauhaus. 

The author writes: It is my goal to undertake an international tour to promote the book.  The way this will work is that the readings and stories will be led by the Q & A. i.e. A certain question may trigger an association with a particular passage in the book or a related memory. This will mean that every appearance will be unique and the content will directly address the specific interests of the audience. I shall also be performing a few relevant stripped down Bauhaus songs at the end of the evening. 

The shows will take place mainly in book stores and so will be unpaid.  I need to raise funds for travel and accommodation + musicians' wages.  It has taken me seven years to write this book and now that it is about to be published I would very much like to share the unique experience of live readings + story telling with music.

During the 1998 Bauhaus Resurrection tour, I kept a 'fly on the wall' journal, selections from which were posted on the official Bauhaus site under the pseudonym of 'The Undertaker'.  This original hand written book is now being offered as a reward.  It features a photo of Oscar Wilde on the front cover and is signed by Daniel Ash, Kevin Haskins and myself.
