With Great Sadness and Shock today , I hear of the shooting of Ali Eskandarian , my young musician friend . Ali opened for my 2008 Retrospective Tour. My memory of Ali is one of a young man full of verve and love of lfe , at once committed to advocating for the easing of the subjugation of his people as well as forging ahead with stoic contemorary NYC music cool . That his end has been so sudden and tragic leaves us who knew Ali appalled. Our prayers go out to Ali's family and the families of his fellow band mates of The Yellow Dogs murdered alongside him.

Today, I hear also of our Bauhaus fine Engineer, Producer, and Mentor Derek Tompkins passing away this past Wed 6th November, and send sincere condolences to Mavis, his wife of many years. Derek's studio, Beck Studios, in my hometown of Wellingborough, was the place where, as a new band, Bauhaus went to make our first ever Demo recording for the grand price of £11 . Recording five songs , which included the one take only of Bela Lugosi's Dead , the same mix was used as the master recording for this seminal classic. Indeed this was the first ever vocal that as a singer I had recorded, and together with the band we sensed a magic in the air as we finished the song. Derek's presence and expertise was crucial in this moment. We subsequently invited Derek to be with us a co-Producer on the two Bauhaus albums Burning from the Inside & The Sky's Gone Out.
All We Ever Wanted Was Eveything -- and when we asked -- Derek came along.
It is the hour of the Roses (Seher)....the time each day, that hour before dawn when it is said that those refined souls--Saints, Prophets and Masters--walk among us, the sweetest time to make one's ablutions and to prostrate to the Creator. .. that I hear the news that my brother and noble friend Cheb ı Sabbah passed from here to there . Not a time of grieving, but one of celebration of what we call the Wedding Day of the Servant to his Lord. I had the privilege to visit Cheb i at his home in SF some 10 days ago, where I delivered my small contribution toward Cheb i 's new work, and we enjoyed Sohbet or intimate conversation, respect, and Love. Cheb i was ready for whatever was to come, not living in fear, no desperation. Indeed ever living in the moment only, playing us his new works fully alive and what's more, serving us the sweetest chai and making us laugh into the small hours. We pray for his ever refining journey in the Lap of Compassion with his Lord, for strength to those loved ones that remain here , and we pray for Chebi 's very own Chidren and grandchildren, who are arrows shot ahead of him in tradition of service of Love, Light and carry his candle Faith onwards.
Allah Rahmet Eylesin Chebi, and see you one fine night .

PETER MURPHY FEATURED IN VMAN MAGAZINE!
"Paragons: VMAN Style Icons"
On newsstands now, issue 28 features a 4 page pictorial spread and article. Full text is below, or link to the article here:
PARAGONS:VMAN STYLE ICONS
These pioneers have forged new cultural identities through their personal styles, leaving an indelible mark on fashion.
PETER MURPHY: Transformation is invested/With the mysterious and the shameful/While the thing I am becomes something else/Part character, part sensation.- Bauhaus, from "Mask"
They call him the Godfather of Goth. Peter Murphy is best known as the vocalist of legendary sonic pioneers Bauhaus, whose 1979 single "Bela Lugosi's Dead" is largely considered to be the beginning of the Gothic rock genre. But like any true innovator, Murphy has proved himself unafraid to leave behind the worlds that he creates, to tear down the walls of his own dark castle in the post-punk underworld and go in search of unknown creative terrain upon which to rebuild. After he disbanded Bauhaus in 1983, Murphy embarked on years of exploration as both a solo musician and painter. Nearly a decade later, in a sign of his lasting brilliance, he created American pop anthem "Cuts You Up" (1990), which sat at the top of the Billboard Modern Rock charts longer than any other number one hit that year. The musical descendants of Murphy and Bauhaus are well documented, and the artists's style has been a force no less powerful.
"Bauhaus popularized an image of black-clad Goths which continues to influence mainstream fashion," writes Valerie Steele in her book with Jennifer Park, Gothic: Dark Glamour. "Mask is irrefutable evidence that Bauhaus pioneered the dark theatrics characteristic of the Goth genre," continues Park, referring to the band's 1981 album. "Bauhaus was a band that understood the power of image early on...the erotically androgynous good looks of Peter Murphy well suited the Goth emphasis on beauty, and his attention to style again reiterated fashion's ultimate status in Goth subculture."
A Muslim who has called Istanbul his home for the past twenty years, Murphy cites family as his earliest style inspiration: "My father, Michael Patrick, who in the 1930s was a natty turnout in wide Trilby and a wide swathing woolen beige long coat." The e-mail he sends me from California while on tour supporting his recent record, Ninth, is written in a beautiful Joyce-meets-Anthony Burgess vernacular. "My near twin brother Christopher's '70's Ben Sherman shirts," he continues. "Then his full testosterone black three-quarter Crombie coat, dancing to Northern soul and Reggae at our youth club, all pubescent and checkin' out the girls--cool. Not to mention my mother Margaret Ellen's own makeup sessions in our sunflower concave dinner room mirror, the pinnacle of the wist being as she applied her just right, deep crimson, strawberry red lipstick, rendering her own natural beauty just so!"
His influence permeates several generations and genres of fashion designers. It's of course present in the more devotedly Gothic, such as Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester, and Yohji Yamamoto (and the subculture of artisan darkwear born thereof, like Carol Christian Poell, Carpe Diem, and it's disciples, and Paul Harnden). But it's also visible in the work of preeminent designers Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Martin Margiela, and John Galliano, as well as today's young pioneers, such as Riccardo Tisci, Olivier Theyskens, and Alexander Wang.
And yet, Murphy says, "What I look like and what I wear is not fashion. What I wear is an integral part of my whole. In relation to my music and my work--I see my clothes as part and parcel of the same movement. As I write a song, I write upon myself, too. It's all interrelated."
It's been almost three and a half decades since Murphy's cellar-door voice first cried out its declaration of a new melancholic unity. Lasting victor of the the countless culture wars since, Murphy sits in the dark throne built by his successors--the artists and fans who continue to inherit, reinterpret, and bequeath his influence--his legacy forever undying.--ELLIOT DAVID

As the music industry grapples with the reality of the illegal proliferation of music and film content, that is in actuality the intellectual and fiscal property of its artist creators. As a musician who has come from the 'pre-internet age' and seeing the impact first hand on my own income source, which has been lessened. Whilst I am for the industry developing as many protective measures as possible to remind the public that illegal downloading is in fact virtual theft, I also understand the reflex to take something that appears to be 'free' via any and such rogue web sources. I personally trust that the free radical nature of the internet in this respect will evolve towards a more controlled culture where both the artist and fan will reach a middle ground as we see more and more artists offering many free content to audiences. From my 'artists' perspective, I'd say that I am concerned about a worst case scenario whereby the uncontrolled illegal free pilfering of art (the property of the Artist) will lead to the nigh on radical decline and dissuasion of budding artists to even begin to surface, as well as rendering present artists redundant and, ironically, being destroyed by the very same fans that enjoy the work. Fans might want to be careful about this syndrome. In essence, the WWW does offer fantastic new ways of sharing art, through ever budding new ways to continue that wonderful conversation between the artist and the audience.

A happy Yuletide to everyone, special thanks to the wondrous crowds who came to the Water Bird's Concerts this year— see you on the other side – Just watch me now!
Certainly most scholars will agree the single most important verse about
light found in the Qur'an is the famous Light verse (Qur'an, 24; 35). Within
it we find the mystical revelation of the essence of this Nur Mohammadiyya
and the central pillar of Quranic ascension mysticism.
God is the light of the heavens and earth,
The light like the light of a lamp in a niche
The lamp enclosed in a cover of glass
The glass like a glistening star
Kindled from the oil of a blessed tree
An olive not of the East not of the West
Its oil glows forth nearly without the touch of fire
Light on light God guides to his light whomsoever he wills
Allah strikes symbols for humankind
Allah in all things is most knowing
God is the light of the heavens and earth, Allah is Light and has created everything out of Light. Not only the light
we perceive in the physical world but the light we perceive spiritually which
supports all creation itself. When this light starts shining upon the regions of
the heart, the lamp of the heart will be lit. This light has a special quality or
effect and when ignited in the regions of the heart provides the spiritual
impetus to return to God.
The light like the light of a lamp in a niche This light has been placed in the heart of each being just like a light which
has been placed in a lamp which has been covered by a glass. It needs only a
touch of a saint to be lit or awakened.
The lamp enclosed in a cover of glass The glass like a glistening star
Is like a light within the heart which shines like a glistening star in the
middle of the night illuminating the darkness of the heart in all directions.
As the darkness is dispelled in the heart it now begins to radiate outwardly
with this First light. Since this light is...
Kindled from the oil of a blessed tree
It shines within the deepest recesses of the heart with such purity that
unleashes the lightning of divine discoveries. This lightening will generate
the thunderclouds of meaning, from
An olive not of the East not of the West
And shedding light upon the tree of discovery, so pure, so transparent
Its oil glows forth nearly without the touch of fire
Nothing can compare to the experience of this divine luminosity which
defies rationale description, explanation and is at once an answer to the cry
of the soul within every being who comes into this world.
Light on light God guides to his light whomsoever he wills
As He who is All Light reaches down to touch our light with His light we
are divinely attracted back to our source which is the pre eternal light, first
Light, Divine Essence the Nur Mohammadiyya, through which…
Allah strikes symbols for humankind
Whose Prophets and saints are his signs or symbols which give faith,
direction and certitude and ultimately mediate our return to our original
Face, about which it is said "and to Him we are returning"…and
Allah in all things is most knowing.
God's wisdom is unlimited beyond comprehension apprehension or
explanation and the only path is to submit to the will of the almighty. It is
God who is the pre-eternal source of light, manifesting the being of the
Prophet out of this Light and then casting a light into those souls he seeks to
guide back to Him.
The Prophet reiterates this same thought, "God Most High created men in
darkness, then sprinkled on them some of His light."
God in his perfect wisdom created his saints from this same light who are his
living symbols ("strikes symbols") of his power and glory in this world.
Each of them has the obligation of knowing his Lord by coming fully into
the Light of Lights. We can then say it is only through these polarized Lights
of God his saints and Prophets that souls can return to God. Who then is the
true Shaykh? Rumi tells us, "The Perfect Shaykh is the absolute Light of
My heart has become capable of all forms;
For gazelles, a meadow, for monks, a monastery,
A temple for idols, the pilgrim's Ka'ba
The Tablets of the Torah, the Book of the Qur'an
I profess the religion of Love, and whatever the direction Taken by
its mount, Love is my religion and my faith.

"It's with great sadness and affection that I hear the news of Mick Karn's passing today. My Love goes out to Kyoko his wife, his son Metis and Mick's unfailing assistant and close friend Debi Zornes who I had the pleasure to meet during the brief spell that Mick and I got to work together this past autumn. Mick's wry sense of humour, keen creativity and graciousness were there even in the times of most physical distress. May he rest in the lap of Compassion.
Till we meet again"
