BAUHAUS’ DAVID J teamed with V For Vendetta creator and fellow Northampton, UK hipster ALAN MOORE in 1983 to write a "soundtrack" to Moore’s graphic novel. At turns dark and atmospheric, edgy and thrilling, twisted and sardonic, this 27-minute EP is the perfect sonic partner to Moore’s futuristic tale. Says David J: "In 1983 my friend Alan Moore approached me with the intriguing idea of composing some music to go with a set of his lyrics which would comprise the entire text to an episode of his serialized graphic novel, V For Vendetta—a transcription of the music to also appear under each panel of the strip. The story was an Orwellian vision of a dystopian near future set in a tyrannized England—the hero, ‘V’ being a mysterious vigilante with a certain vaudevillian bent." Two of these tracks were released (appropriately enough) in 1984 on a Glass Records 12-inch. The other five are released here for the first time.
