Biography

Kevin Haskins also known as Kevin Michael Dompe (b. July 19, 1960, in Northampton) is an innovative drummer best known from the British rock group Bauhaus, whose sound epitomized dark post-punk and was very influential in inspiring the gloomy style that would eventually come to be known as gothic rock. He was also a member of Tones on Tail and Love and Rockets. He currently lives in Los Angeles, California with his wife Pamela Dompe and two daughters Diva and Lola.

As a child, Kevin Haskins banged on flowerpots and kitchen pots and pans. He eventually moved to bongos and then to drums. It was until Haskins attended a Sex Pistols gig, that he and his brother David J formed a band called the Submerged Tenth. The band was short-lived, but Haskins and J collaborated again in another band which featured guitarist Daniel Ash. In 1978, Haskins joined Bauhaus 1979 which consisted of vocalist Peter Murphy, J, and Ash. The band took their name from the German Bauhaus art movement, dropping the latter portion within a year of the band’s formation. Although there were bands before them that pre-figured the style, Bauhaus is generally agreed to have been the first gothic rock group. Bauhaus combined a number of influences (punk music, glam rock, even funk and dub) to create a gloomy, but very passionate sound which appealed to many looking for something new in the wake of punk’s collapse. Their sound proved very inspiring and brought attention to a whole wave of post-punk groups delving in the gloomy style that would eventually come to be known as gothic rock.
