WHAT'S ONLINE MAG - DB INTERVIEW
26th February 1999

An exclusive DAVID BOWIE interview entitled 'Web Space Odyssey' appears in Issue 8 of WHAT'S ONLINE

Interview extracts:

"Will you be doing any Webcasts?"
One of the things I'm really excited about at the moment is doing a live online jam session. My long-time guitarist Reeves Gabrels and myself, and probably Tony Visconti and a couple of other musicians, are going to be doing an online jam in place of one of the chats in the spring. That's going to be very exciting because we're doing an hour of completely improvised music from the site. This poses another question - who exactly does that music belong to? Because it's written as we play it live on the Internet, it's not formally copyrighted at all.
Has improvisation always played a key role in your work?
It's changed from period to period. At the moment, I'm at a point in my life where I can handle both ways of working pretty well. I feel very confident about improvising and feel extremely happy about composing pieces of music before I go into the studio. This year sees Reeves and myself actually using both ways of working at the same time. We're collaborating on two projects at once at the moment, with one based solely on improvisation, which is really, really exciting.

BRETT ANDERSON'S WORLD OF SHOWBIZ
11th February 1999

A snippet from BRETT ANDERSON'S 'World Of Showbiz column in the MELODY MAKER reads:
..."Finally, I went to see the amazing ANNIE CHRISTIAN last week. They rocked! PLACEBO seem to agree - they were all there and I hear that the Molko chap's lined up to play with DAVID BOWIE at the Brit Awards. Only on stage, mind you! Ha ha ha. Seriously though, that Bowie needs to sort himself out, meeting up with the singer from every second-rate comedy glam covers band really cheapens his trashy glamour. Or something. To be honest I don't have a clue what I'm talking about. Sorry...
(Ed. Brett... Placebo second-rate? You're not listening to them properly.... I hope you are including Suede in with the covers band comment!? LOL).
