Former DAVID BOWIE backing singer HOLLY PALMER plays on Sunday Nights at The Kids Cotton Club. If you find yourself in Los Angeles on a Sunday night, you should move yourself to Danny Masterson's night at Guy's for The Kids Cotton Club.

You will hear some of the most gorgeous, soulful, full-on R&B and Soul and Jazz music this side of NYC. There is a house band of monster players, including a mess of horns, stand-up bass and various guests who jump up and add to the party. Macy comes to sing, Nikka comes to sing and lately, Miss Holly has been doing her thing. She's been bringing the house down singing, 'Georgia', leaving people asking, "Is that girl with the mohawk gonna sing again?" Well, the mohawk's growing out, but yes, she will now be there singing a song or two EVERY SUNDAY NIGHT around midnight. Come early, the place fills up quick!!

Guy's Bar is located at: 8713 Beverly Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90048.

UK actor ANDY SERKIS who is about to star alongside DAVID BOWIE in 'The Prestige' has been interviewed by Quint on aint-it-cool-news website.

Highlights of the interview include the following:

QUINT: I also wanted to touch on a project you're doing now, playing David Bowie's assistant in The Prestige.
QUINT: Sounds like it'd be so much fun. Have you done that already?
AS: I haven't, I haven't. I've done some scenes. I've done my scenes with Hugh Jackman. I've got my scenes with David Bowie coming up next week, actually, so I fly back to LA and I start filming next week with him. That'll be so exciting.
Q: That's so cool, man. I'm a child of the '80s, so Bowie's been with me from an early age because of Labyrinth. Then his music... I just can't wait to see him play Tesla. He's a perfect match for that...
AS: Isn't he just, yeah! He's perfect casting. Really cool.
Q: You're playing his assistant, right?
AS: That's right. I'm playing this character called Roger Alley who's kind of... He's very kind of defensive of Tesla and the AC current, you know, because of the DC current. (laughs)

The Arts Telegraph website has published an interview with TONY VISCONTI entitled 'Bolan, Bowie, Morrissey and Me'.

Highlights include:

"If I have one talent as a producer it's that I have a way of capturing someone's essence. I don't want to be Svengali, and I don't want to work with people who need that - if they need that, they're not really true artists. David has worked with other producers, illustrious producers, but they gave him their sound. My philosophy is always to defer to the alpha male: 'David, what do you want?' So I think on the records I've co-produced with David, people are going to get a more real Bowie."

A new musical based on the life of BRUCE LEE - possibly featuring the songs of rock titan DAVID BOWIE - is headed for Broadway.

According to Variety, the musical would be based on the life story of the iconic martial artist and movie star, who starred in classic kung fu films such as Enter The Dragon before dying tragically young in 1973 at the age of 32.

Tony Award-winner David Henry Hwang has been tapped to write the book of the musical, which is under development by the Chicago-based Elephant Eye Theatricals and is projected to leap onto Broadway around 2008.

Matthew Warchus, the director of the Lord of the Rings musical, will also helm the Bruce Lee show.

"Bowie was spotted in Toronto yakking with Warchus," states the article. The rock legend - who wrote "China Girl" among many other hits - would make his Broadway musical debut with the Lee musical. However, Bowie's involvement has not yet been confirmed.

DB fan OLAF emailed in to let us know that he saw the first screening of the JULIEN TEMPLE documentary 'Glastonbury' on the Berlin Filmfest ("Berlinale"). It took place at the cinema 'International' in former East Berlin.

Julien was there (and sitting right behind me...) and was in a good mood as he presents the movie. Before the film starts, Berlinale-director Dieter Kosslick interviewed him. Julien told the audience they have 900 hours of footage cut down to 2 hours, and they will bring out an DVD with 898 hours of bonus material. Also he told the audience that Ben & Jerry will bring out an Glastonberry ice cream.

The film is an interesting collage from all the years of the festival, not running chronologically, it jumps around through all the years mixing scenes from the hippy, punk or dance era together for a fascinatinating movie. It includes - of course - a lot of music, like Velvet Underground, Pulp, Morrissey, Björk, and a thousand others and of course our man, with his stunning performance of "Heroes". This is the end of the movie and its dedicated to all the people who make this festival come true, and I think its the best way to end this film.

After the film they did a little more serious interview with Julien. He talked about the stress, seeking all this material, which comes a lot from festival visitors private footage. The most interesting experience for him was that he understands, that the most difference between Hippies, Punks and Ravers is the hairstyle. What they have all in common ist the wish for an better, alternative world. Interesting to hear this from a "Kill the Hippies" - Filmer.

After this he ends with a plea for the survival of mankind (and as he said, do not care only for butterflies and rhinocerosses) and this is what his film is for.

But even if you're interested in the existence of Rhinocerosses or not, its a brilliant film, and with 2 hours 20 minutes not one minute to long.

Last year's boundary pushers enter next year with Bowie blessing.

When URB caught up with TV On The Radio front man Tunde Adebimpe to rap about the year that was, he summed it up by saying "2005 was more relaxing," before pausing to add, "actually, that's a complete lie."

Following a seemingly never-ending tour, the group recently completed their second (as-of-yet untitled) LP, recorded at guitarist/producer Dave Sitek's Stay Gold Studio in Brooklyn this past summer and will be released by Touch and Go this March. According to Adebimpe, recording the record was an "exciting and draining and fascinating and surreal process." We thought we journalists were the ones who were supposed to be all adjective-happy, but we guess having DAVID BOWIE on your album is as good grounds as any to use the word surreal.

"Dave and I were selling paintings in SoHo and wound up giving one to this dude who happened to be David Bowie's doorman. Dave passed along some of our music to this dude and left his phone number," explains Adebimpe. "Bowie called Dave a few weeks later and asked to hear some of our new material. We gave him the music and he wound up coming into the studio to sing on one track." Does Bowie sing the hook hip-hop style? "It's not overbearing or anything, but he's on the verses and chorus," deadpans Adebimpe. Joining Bowie on the album are guests Kazu Makino from Blonde Redhead, Chris Taylor from Grizzly Bear, Martin Perna and Stuart Bogie from Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra and Katrina Ford from Celebration.

Outside of their band grind, some members of TV On The Radio will be producing records (Sitek), making animated films (Adebimpe) and compiling a book of comics and illustrations by other musicians (singer/guitarist Kyp Malone and Adebimpe). With so much on their collective plates, we asked Adebimpe if the group is up to the task(s). "We're going into 2006 different and, hopefully, better," he said. "In any way, we're all still vertical and that's a good thing." Naturally, we have complete faith that these former URB cover stars will be able to deliver the goods on all fronts.

The Weinstein Company is proud to announce that it has acquired rights in all English speaking territories to the CGI animated family film "Arthur and the Minimoys," based on LUC BESSON's best selling children's book by the same title. The screenplay was adapted by Besson, the award winning writer/director/producer behind such movies as "The Fifth Element," "The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc" and "La Femme Nikita." Besson is directing the partly live action, featuring Freddie Highmore and Mia Farrow, and partly animated film, with voices by DAVID BOWIE, Madonna and Snoop Dogg. The film is currently in production, being produced by EuropaCorp.

Ten-year-old Arthur has a lot on his plate: a real estate developer is about to snap up his Grandma's home... and there's no way Arthur's going to hang around for his parents or grandparents to sort out the problem. Maybe the solution lies in his Grandpa's treasure, which is hidden somewhere on the "other side" in the land of the Minimoys. The creatures that inhabit this world are just a tenth of an inch tall and live in perfect harmony with their environment.

Arthur ventures into this world of the Minimoys, where he meets Princess Selenia and her brother Betameche. Together they set off to look for the treasure that will save his grandma. An action-packed adventure ensues, full of pitfalls and intrigues, all the way up to the forbidden city ruled by the evil M the Malicious. Arthur's journey in the Minimoys universe reveals that sometimes the smallest heroes make the biggest difference.

"We are thrilled to be bringing this exciting adventure story to the big screen," said Harvey Weinstein. "'Arthur' is an enchanting and heroic tale and will be enjoyed by family audiences everywhere."

Pierre-Ange stated, "'Arthur and the Minimoys' is clearly the most ambitious, creative and unique project EuropaCorp has ever produced. Luc Besson has spent 3 1/2 years to create and direct this movie, with the same energy and passion that he provided to "The Fifth Element," and more. We all at EuropaCorp are thrilled and most delighted to know this treasured project is being carried by such a creative and dedicated team such as The Weinstein Company."

Luc Besson's 2003 book, a huge success in France, captured the hearts of young readers. There are four books in Besson's series including "Arthur and the Forbidden City," which continues Arthur's heroic story, "Arthur and the Revenge of Maltazard" and "Arthur and the War of the Two Worlds" which gives an end to this journey. The publishing rights of the first two tomes are handled by Harper Collin's Children Books.

For The Weinstein Company, the project will be overseen by co-president of production, Michael Cole, and director of production and development, Michael Schaefer.

Maeva Gatineau, executive vice president of Europe acquisitions and co-production, brought the film to The Weinstein Company. Michael Cole and Barry Littman, executive vice president of business and legal affairs, negotiated the deal on behalf of The Weinstein Company and Pierre-Ange Le Pogam and Luc Besson negotiated on behalf of EuropaCorp.
