Solo album by David J (Bauhaus, Love And Rockets) is an intensely personal, self-deprecating, confessional song cycle and ultimately a glowing tribute to his wife of many decades. It is intended as a cyclic swan-song, the last track, "I Hear Only Silence Now" being a new version of the song which was the first on J's 1983 solo debut, Etiquette Of Violence. The new album was recorded in Prague, Berlin, and Los Angeles as well as Wellingborough, England when J revisited Beck Studios where his former highly influential band, Bauhaus cut "Bela Lugosi's Dead" in 1979. The new album features contributions from Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre), Toby Dammit (Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds), Paul Wallfisch (Swans), Sean Eden (Luna), Rose McGowan, Asia Argento, Emily Jane White, Annabel (lee), and the great Czech violinist Karel Holas, amongst others. J sees the album as the culmination of 36 years of solo/collaborative work. It is also a "coming home" of sorts as the label behind the release is the London based Glass Modern (the newly reactivated Glass Records) which originally released some of J's earliest critically acclaimed works.
