Greetings great friends and supporters! I have been quite busy trying to keep up with the general life challenges, fitting work and music around each other! I am proud to have reached a good point with my new album "Lights for the Living". Thomas has finished all of the drums, and I am still working on some guitars and vocals myself, but it is closer to being ready to go for mixing. The options are still open for exactly where and how it will be released, however after some long thoughts... I believe it makes the most sense to release it as a followup to Tribe & Throne, under the flag of DJC, throught the Village Slut Records portal. I am very proud of this collection of music, as it is a new page in writing and recording for myself. This entire process, the writing and recording, all happened during the Corona Lockdowns, and from home in my own private studio. Most of the work I did, was done between the hours of 10 pm and 2 am, under extreme freezing conditions last winter. My studio room has no real heating, and so this feeling of a dark cold is definately to be heard in the music. Also, a relaxed feeling of time can be heard, I was able to work differently with less pressure from the outside world, and get closer to some sounds that make my little niche of music my own. I would say, "Lights for the Living" is a side step, kind of touching down here and there along the road of my original guitar based recordings with Damn The Machine, then on to some groove based feelings through the JUD years, as well as lots of intense melody experiements developed mostly via Tribe & Throne.
For very close fans, I have offered a little sneak preview program, where you can support by pre-ordering the album, and get a private link to some samples of the music. If you are interested in this just send me an email please, via David (a) fullbliss.com
Also new up, is a very cool video from "My Trust" / Tribe & Throne, you can find the link via my Video page on this website, or visit my JUDTV channel on YouTube. The video was made again by Stefan Mastronicola (Servants) and he used various film from himself, as well as a wonderful photo from Anton Tal.
Also in the pipeline, is another video for "Humanity the Lie" from JUD Generation Vulture, this video should be released in the next month.
on the subject of videos, Animation pro Chuck Agin is almost finished with a very extremely cool animated video for "Dark Walk Home" / Tribe & Throne, this I hope to have from him in the next month or 2, it is very close to completion, just some fine touches, as he mixes fun work with real work, the juggle of an American Artist in 2021.
in USA news, the film "Kameleon" from Lindsely Cruz (Immortal Wars) will be released shortly, and proves already to be an exciting visual ride. The film includes at least one track from "Tribe & Throne", and for that I am so appreciative for this. Stay tuned to this website, and my facebook / insta pages for updates.
In Merchandise news, I have been slowly buidling up my back catalog physical CD arsenal, and I can now offer some nice box sets, for example all 6 JUD albums, I have at least 4
sets, that I can offer for sale, also I have acquired more "Life in the kingdom of agreement" and "this temple is haunted" cds, which were previously sold out.
Vinyl, I can proudly offer JUD "Generation Vulture" as 12" with poster, and of course the latest release "Tribe & Throne" on Vinyl, 180g with a very cool poster, artwork from Chris Corrado
thanks for tuning in, keep your heads up, the world keeps on turning!

Wow I mean wow, Earth in March 2021, how are you all? I wish you great power dealing with the current affairs of the world. I am trying to remain optimistic, doing my best and wishing I could do more to have a positive effect on so much suffering. For all the difficulties of 2020 and 2021, there is always hope to lean upon. The human nature, is one to never give up, following this creed is vital to our survival. I
In DJC musical news, I am working constantly with your great help, in furthering the travels of "Tribe & Throne" (available of course as LP, Clear or Black and Cd on my Music page).
I appreciate so much, the success of this album in the press and in my fan base. For one to mention, Eclipsed magazine based in Germany, has listed the album as #55 in their top 100 greatest releases of 2020 writer's poll. This is a great honor.
At the same time, I am well into writing and recording of my next album. At this time, it is possible that it goes a few different ways. I had started the writing, considering the songs to become what would be the 2nd Damn The Machine album (after almost 30 years between). At this time, Chris Poland and I are in communication about this as a reality. We also have label interest at a wonderful label based in Los Angeles, I will not make any announcements until more is solidified.
I am very interested in supporting you as well, if you are in bands, have LPs merch, please get in touch about possible trades etc.
visit me on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, search JUDTV or my name.
from the bottom of my soul, thank you my friends

Well we made it through another time wormhole! Musically I am proud to be getting the best response from any album I have ever released, "Tribe & Throne" is finding it's way into new territories, and I am honored and flattered. In a time when things seem uncertain, and loss of life is calculated against economy and education, this era feels to be dark and without direction. I have tried to keep an optimistic perspective of the whole thing, and find myself pondering on this photo that many of you have seen, of the Earth from the farthest point ever photographed in our solar system, reminding us how termporary everything really is, and that each second is a building block in humanity itself and is to be cherished and respected. I hope my music brings you all some peace, and power to get through the days. I find myself over and over returning to music as my foundation, to recharge and protect from the negativity outside, so, thank you, love yourself and one another, and never ever give up

So the cover image is chosen, thank you Axel!!! I have decided on one of the few names I had been kicking around, final decision, "Tribe & Throne". I love the title, as it speaks of the 2 classes of people, currently now "at war" with one another, My attempt at bringing beauty to the chaos

Hey Y'all I am proud to report, that the initial tracking for the upcoming release, is complete, we did 3 wonderful days together, and effortlessly recorded the 8 Songs for the new album. Thomas Götz has handeled the recording, as well as incredible drumming, full of dynamic the likes I have not yet experienced, and Earl Grey laid the super tasty & fat bass. This trio was a dream to write, arrange and record with. Over the next weeks, I will be doing vocals overdubs and some guitars, perhaps some funny stuff, depending on the mood, and if all goes well it shall be pressed onto Vinyl around first of 2020. Also planned, is a run of digipaks, and it would be interresting to know who wants what... I will put up some order buttons on the music page shortly. Artwork is coming, I am narrowing in on the cover image, it is close to be decided, and you will see it. good night from the jungles of Berlin
For the last few days, many memories have been flooding my brain, of past bands, and fellow musicians that have been so vital to my years writing and releasing, touring, so much has happened, sometimes I wish I could restart a few things, quite a few wonderful bridges have been torched. There never seems to be the write action at the right time,
I am eternally grateful to the amazing creatures that have parterned up with me along the way, Hoss Angeles, Steve Cordrey, James Schmidt, Anne de Wolff, Jan Hampicke, Chris Lastelle, Robert Goldbach, Lisa Lenois, Janice Mautner Markham, Joey Gold, David Skip Doyle, Markos Vassiliou, Thomas Götz and Earl Grey, without these lovelies it would not be possible
I am in the mood again, thanks to Earl Grey and Thomas Götz, I've got a fat record in the works, looking at different titles, trying out some new stuff, pushing some borders.
It is the first time in many years that I spent so much time writing new music, and let me tell you folks, I have thrown out at least 40 little fish, so that I have room for the 8 big fish, these are not just big, they are really fat fish, and I am so excited to record them in October here in Berlin.
Since I have been sharing a practice room with Thomas Götz (Beatsteaks) he has been so kind as to fill in on drums on a few concerts and when I was in the mood to write he jumped in and so me Thomas and Earl finished these up and we will record under the expertise of Thomas in his personal studio. We already recorded demos, and they are so fat that I can imagine we will be fist fighting whether to use the demos or the actual recordings for the album.
And if you are still reading this section, then you are a very cool cat, so, lots of people ask me how they can help, well, I hate to take without giving, so, simply, preorder a record, if you like, I am gonna get a button link up soon, I am hoping to have the cover sorted so then it makes more sense, time and money are short, and since time is money, then money would be help in this case, and since the album will cost money, pre ordereing an album, gives you and me something, and you may also say if you prefer cd or vinyl, as to give me an idea what is going on in the world of physical product,
spotify is the devil, you must all know that by now, physical product is the only way to keep the artists artists, keep feeding the machine, listening and not buying product, and you will have nothing, in the future, to be proud of
releases, albums cds vinyls all on the releases page go get em tiger
