Vagabond Songs is David J's new limited edition gatefold double vinyl LP set. David J's (Love and Rockets / Bauhaus / The Jazz Butcher) ninth studio album Vagabond Songs features a disarmingly charming and heart-felt collection of acoustic songs written on the road and inspired by people and places encountered by David J as he ventured on his ramblin' vagabond way around the world.
The limited edition gatefold double vinyl LP set includes the UK hit single, "The Day That David Bowie Died" as well as a radical reworking of the Love and Rockets' classic, "The Dog End of a Day Gone By".
The limited edition double LP set comes in a special casewrapped gatefold jacket with matte lamination along with two color sleeves with lyrics, photography, and artwork. The double vinyl LPs come in two different color configurations - traditional black vinyl (available from David J at his living room shows) and a colored vinyl blend of opaque and translucent hues that accompanies the artwork on the gatefold jacket.
The run is limited to 500 copies (150 black vinyl copies and 350 colored vinyl copies).
All domestic orders are sent media mail with delivery confirmation while International orders are sent airmail.

Return To Prague
To return to Prague in order to record a new album
I have been fortunate enough to have made a living from music for four decades now and that has only been possible because of the support of you the public. It is something that I have never taken for granted and now in these times when community crowd sourcing is so vital for independent artists such as my self it is appreciated all the more. I feel that this latest album has the potential to be my little masterpiece. The songs are all written and are now crying out to be committed to tape. The experience of recording in Prague while on tour there was so very inspiring to me and I long to return in order to carry on and see the project through to completion. A couple of tracks have already been recorded elsewhere, namely LA and also one track in Berlin. The latter being a collaboration with the ridiculously talented Anton Newcomb from The Brian Jones Town Massacre and Asia Argento who is possessed of probably the sexiest voice on the planet! Still we have a ways to go and the beautiful city of Prague is calling! The funds received via this campaign will go towards the studio costs, musicians fees, hotel, flights and possible a few bottles of the excellent local beer!
The perks on offer here include some rare and unique items such as the pinstriped suit that I wore on stage in the days when I was a very skinny lad indeed! There is also a chance to actually fly to Prague and be a fly on the wall during one of the sessions! Also up for grabs here is the actual X-Ray photograph (signed) that was taken of my injured hand. This was incurred in the Prague studio. Fortunately I had recorded all of my parts and was being interviewed by a local radio station when the incident happened. I was simply gesticulating in a rather theatrical manner as I told a story and SNAP! Something drastic happened to the middle finger of my right hand. It was excruciating and I very reluctantly had to cancel the second of my shows in Prague that evening. My next port of call was Bucharest and I spent my initial three hours in that fair city in the urgent care ward of the local hospital. There were no broken bones but it was a pretty severe case of ‘trigger finger’ (damaged tendon) Apparently it is a common condition amongst musicians and results from ‘repetitive action’. I am on the mend now thankfully. I know that I have many loyal supporters out there who come back time and time again to help with these creative endeavors so please believe me when I say that your ‘repetitive action’ of making a pledge will not go unappreciated! Please feel free to help spread the word regarding this campaign and post liberally on the web. You are all part of this dream!
