Don’t ask me to make sense of this mini-movie directed by Johan Reneck, there are probably too many occult and religious references for me to understand, but I can appreciate this expansive clip

‘He hit the target completely, because the opening credits embody a lot of different aspects of the show. It’s quite dark and melancholic. It feels inspired by a lot of different music cultures – there’s oriental, Eastern European, and even north African influences in there. It’s theatrical. It’s a song that has a biblical aspect to it; it promises impending doom. And it’s quite beautiful and almost sentimental at the same time.’

David Bowie never going to tour again – David Giddings, his former booking agent, had this to say: “He has decided to retire and, like Phil Collins, you can’t demand these people go out there again and again and again. I’m really pleased and proud that the last show he ever did in the UK was the 2004 Isle Of Wight Festival. David is one of the best artists I’ve ever worked with, but every time I see him now, before I even speak to him, he goes, ‘I’m not touring’ and I say, ‘I’m not asking’.”

I have always regarded David Bowie as an alien walking among us, and he made sure to reinforce this idea with his countless incarnations, erasing the boundaries between male and female, straight and gay, human and extra-terrestrial being. He is a true rock star, the kind of star still surrounded by a lot mystery and enigma,… and thanks to the pre-Twitter era, Ziggy Stardust will always keep his ambiguity.

‘His mansion in Beckenham has been demolished, for instance, and I’m unlikely to have a fling with Mick Jagger,’ he admitted. ‘However, it is possible to engage with and get a feel for his experiences without immersing oneself to a dangerous extent.’

You might think Aldous, or maybe Harold Wilson, or God knows John Lennon, who returned his MBE “…as a protest against Britain’s involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing, against our support of America in Vietnam and against ‘Cold Turkey’ slipping down the charts.”, would turn down a Knighthood but Bowie?

Across The Universe – David Bowie – It is worth noting how much worse this is than even the Rufus Wainwright take. Botched and a half by Phil Spector, the Lennon unplugged version is the one to go for, Bowie overdoes everything to start with and when the best thing you can do with the song is let it speak for itself, Bowie oversings it at then some – C-

We posted the track listing a couple of days ago and will do it again at the bottom here, but the first time round it was just a bizarre setlist, a mix of hits, obscurities and remixes plus three new songs. Now I see it as different periods in the ongoing story of…

CNN, I didn’t say new Bowie album ‘soon’. I quoted THE MAN who said ‘More Music Soon’ on Bowienet. That music is Sue.” Ergo, the new song we already know about. I am guessing Bowie is so rich he is happy not hitting the road and as Tony noted, he didn’t lift a finger to promote The Next Day.

The other thing to keep in mind here is the following: since the Kinks digital output has been disastrous and since just about every single album the band have ever made deserves a deluxe version, let’s hope the band start sorting out their past history before they are too late to do it.

Nothing is gonna get you too close to Bowie because Bowie has never wanted you to get too close to him. Perhaps his greatest gift was to be so much to so many people while maintaining a mystery, a mystery “Is” doesn’t come close to mastering.

rock nyc has nothing to add to this story in which Susan Sarandon tells the Daily Beast she had a sexual relationship with David Bowie when they worked on “The Hunger” together 30 years ago except sexual relationship is the dirtiest of adjectives on earth

“This city is even better than the one you were in last year, so remember to dance, dance, dance. And then sit down for a minute, knit something, then get up and run all over the place. Do it. Love on ya. More music soon. David”

If it was in the New York City area I’d certainly be there and if you are somewhere in the Dover area you haven’t lived till you’ve enjoyed the timing of Joe Stevens the storyteller. He once had me rolling on the floor with tears talking about Paul McCartney throwing him off the tour bus for asking about a Beatles reunion in what, 1971? 1972?

Performing at The Garage in London, all 7 songs will be done- no word on who’s picking up the vocals but it wont be Bowie. Considering this album came out in 1970 the opportunity to hear it live with two of its original creators is pretty cool- but vocals doth maketh the sound.

This is as far away from the livingness of “Kooks” as you can imagine. It is a drift that can barely lift its head into a oblivion. And oblivion is less inviting and more inevitable, Bowie is not laid back he is dulled out, he is a dull turned off inanimate blue.
