Kevin Haskins, drummer and founding member of Bauhaus, Love and Rockets, Tones on Tail, and his latest trio Poptone, has announced his involvement in an exciting new MTV-inspired television show.

Haskins just signed on as a music supervisor and producer for the new project, entitled FOXES Television, created by mother and son duo Tina and Julian de la Celle, founders of the rock ‘n’ roll music and men’s fashion-focused FOXES Magazine.

FOXES TV aims to fill a huge void, where once there was exciting music programming, such as The Tube and MTV, and also include men’s fashion. The aesthetic of FOXES Magazine will be placed firmly on the screen, showcasing new bands and men’s fashion, interviews, and behind the scenes footage with a very cinematic look.

The show has also engaged producer Orian Williams, who produced the BAFTA and CANNES-winning film Control, directed by Anton Corbijn and detailing the life and times of Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis. Other noteable credits include The Last Movie Star with Burt Reynolds and England Is Mine, a portrait of Morrissey and his early life in 1970s England.

The series would showcase the wide range of talent in both the music and fashion world. The two main sources of inspiration are the early inception of MTV, and Jim Jarmusch’s film Coffee and Cigarettes.

The show will revolve around an iconic duo, i.e. Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese, pairing them up in conversation. The content around that conversation would include live sets with up-and-coming and already established bands, spotlights on fashion designers, as well as backstage features at fashion weeks and tour diaries with bands.

An Indiegogo campaign has been launched to help raise the needed budget to get the show off the ground.

There are various “Perks” when donating certain amounts, and there is also a special one-time Bauhaus raffle with a few exclusive signed items by Kevin Haskins including: One small print of your choice and one large print of your choice from Kevin’s website, a signed copy of his new book Bauhaus – Undead, released via Cleopatra Records, and a signed Bauhaus tour laminate. Each raffle ticket is $10, so the more you contribute, the better your chances are to win! The four winners will be announced at 10pm Pacific time / 1pm Eastern / 6pm UK time on Saturday, October 20th.

Contribute HERE and spread the word. A benefit show will take place on October 20th . Further details about where this will be happening and who is playing will be announced soon.
