THE RETURN OF THE PASSENGER BOOK
28th April 2006

For those of you trying to get hold of a copy of PASSENGER - A DAVID BOWIE PHOTOBOOK by PHILIPPE AULIAC you're in luck.

To mark the occassion of the 30th anniversary of David's return to England on May 2nd 1976, a limited number of copies have been made available.

Passenger On collector Mauro Luppi and publisher Daniele Pensavalle's initiative, here is a collection of photographs of David Bowie and Iggy Pop taken by Philippe Auliac in London and Paris in 1976 and 1977, published in book form for the first time.

After the American episode and the crossing of Siberia with Iggy Pop on the famous Trans-Siberian Railway, David Bowie is back in Europe under the name and guise of the Thin White Duke for the Station To Station tour.

After shooting Nicholas Roeg's The Man Who Fell to Earth, he arrived in the wake of his ambiguous statements to the press. Play-acting, cocaine or delusions of "folie des grandeur". Fans are destabilized when he compares the rise of a rock star to that of a far right political leader. Philippe Auliac becomes an appointed photographer for the European part of the tour, from the first Wembley concert to the May 18th 1976 show at the Pavillon de Paris.

This book is the first edition of Philippe Auliac's work on this controversial time. The full-page pictures come in the form of a photographic account of a flexible chronology that leaves much to the reader's imagination while nonetheless leading him firmly to the show marking the disappearance of the Thin White Duke, who vanishes of his own accord. The three texts by Véronique Pintelon, Christophe Geudin and Laurence Geslin ponctuate the syncopated sequence of the pictures by each addressing the character's different aspects, whether it be his style, his appearance, his musical world or his place in the late 70s, now synonymous with the end of communal utopia.This book - whose purpose is not to add an umpteenth biographic page to all those already published on David Bowie - is an opportunity to discover a series of mostly rare and previously unpublished photographs gathered together in an album to be read, looked through and decoded.

For more details and information on how to get hold of your copy can be found @ moonagedaydream.it website.

DAVID BOWIE, Patti Smith and Faith No More's Mike Patton are among possible collaborators that influential British dub outfit MASSIVE ATTACK has recruited for its next studio album 'Weather Underground', due early next year.

Band member Marshall says the crew has already recorded 15 tracks, with TV on the Radio and Albarn contributing, and the possibility that David Bowie and Hope Sandoval will step in later.

Massive Attack has taken a round-robin approach to vocals for years, having collaborated with Bowie, Madonna and Mos Def, among others, since debuting with the groundbreaking 'Blue Lines' disc in 1991.

TV on the Radio's multi-instrumentalist and producer David Andrew Sitek has contributed to the effort.

THE OFFICIAL 2007 BOWIE CALENDAR
20th April 2006

Official David Bowie 2007 Calendar Available very shortly is the 2007 official DAVID BOWIE calendar with photographs shot by the legendary photographer MICK ROCK.

UK company Slow Dazzle are once again the publishers of this official product, but at present there are no details on their website.

So in the meantime, here's a taster preview of the calendar cover which is taken from the Pin-Ups album cover studio session shot at the height of Ziggy mania in 1973.

Update: Apparently this isn't the actual cover of the calendar it's just a mock-up that was created for trade fairs. Mind you looking at it again - who's DID BOWIE? ;)

Thanks to DearieMe for the pointer.

COOKIE MONSTERS
20th April 2006

The TUSCON WEEKLY recently interviewed TV ON THE RADIO member KYP MALONE about their upcoming gigs and forthcoming album 'Return To Cookie Mountain' which features the vocal talents of a certain DAVID BOWIE.

Highlights include: Return to Cookie Mountain finds the band embracing the spaced-out weirdness of their previous racket-making while showing meticulous attention to the album's vocals. In fact, one of the group's biggest fans, David Bowie, was so impressed, he agreed to collaborate.

"When we were working on the new songs, we dropped them all off for him to listen to and invited him to be a part of whatever he wanted to be a part of," Malone said. "He wanted to be a part of that song, so he came in and sang on it."

'Province,' the song in question, is a swirling, doo-wop anthem that achieves the kind of soaring heights that are instantly enjoyable - the type that TV On The Radio generally shy away from, usually opting instead for songs so packed and layered that only truly attentive listeners will recognise their complete glory. Nonetheless, as Bowie and the band's vocals collide, yelp and rise, the song shines through not as an obligatory guest spot, but as a hauntingly memorable, post-apocalyptic masterpiece.

"It was more surreal, not intimidating," he said. "I never expected to be in a situation where I'm at a mixing board asking David Bowie to enunciate a consonant."

SECRET MACHINES FLATTERED BY BOWIE
18th April 2006

Texan rockers the SECRET MACHINES have thanked DAVID BOWIE for helping to propel them to fame.

The trio insist his celebrity endorsement has been a huge boost to their career and were thrilled when he first announced himself a fan on his website @ BowieNet.

The posting read: "The great news this week is that the Secret Machines have finished their new album and I hope to get a copy shortly. This may be my band for 2006. You read it here sunshine."

Bowie has since recorded a downloadable podcast featuring an interview with band members Brandon Curtis, Benjamin Curtis and drummer Josh Garza.

Brandon says: "You're in a band, and this artist who's had such an impact is taking the time to say he likes us enough to interview us; it's such an honour.

"It also adds to our level of notoriety, like, 'These guys know David Bowie!'"

IF YOU WANT IT, BOYS
9th April 2006

You might recall a while back in August 2003 that DAVID BOWIE had his 'Funny, fast, witty and brutual' quote printed on the cover of author JAKE ARNOTT's then latest publication 'truecrime'. Well get ready to drop everything.

Jake's newest book Johnny Come Home published by Hodder & Stoughton, again features a db quote on the cover: 'Whenever he's got a new book out I drop everything'.

Johnny Come Home by Jake Arnott Synopsis: This is a gripping tale of emotional and political ferment in 70s London from the author of the bestselling 'Long Firm' trilogy. London, 1972, and a charismatic anarchist called O'Connell dies of an overdose, leaving his artist boyfriend, Pearson, and fellow activist Nina in shock. It also leaves a spare room in their squat, so Pearson moves in Sweet Thing, a streetwise yet vulnerable young rent boy he initially picks up but then tries to help. Pearson isn't the only one who's interested though - glam rock star Johnny Chrome is on the brink of a breakdown and is convinced that Sweet Thing is the only one who can bring him back. As Sweet Thing gets drawn further into Johnny Chrome's dangerous orbit, Pearson and Nina discover that O'Connell was not all he seemed.

In this tautly paced, highly evocative novel Jake Arnott once again combines brilliant storytelling with a flawless portrait of a changing era, when the optimism of the 60s was giving way to the anger and bombs of the early 70s.


Today over on Guardian Unlimited website there's an online interview entitled 'Wham Bam, Thank You Glam' with Peter Guttridge asking the questions. Highlights include:

Jake Arnott is tucking into a plate of guinea fowl at St John, his local restaurant in London's Clerkenwell, and worrying about David Bowie. The sophisticated fusion of gangsterism, showbusiness, politics and gay culture in Arnott's 'gangland trilogy' - The Long Firm, He Kills Coppers and truecrime - has earned him much acclaim and at least one superstar fan. On the covers of his novels, there is an approving quote from Bowie: 'Whenever he's got a new book out, I drop everything, knowing that the next couple of hours are going to be pure gangland bliss.'

Although that summary sells Arnott short - his work is a critique, not celebration, of gangland - that's not why he's worried. Bowie has been 'inspirational' to Arnott, who is a 'fantastically huge fan', and he isn't sure how the singer will react to his new novel, Johnny Come Home, which is set in the early Seventies world of glam rock, the pop phenomenon Bowie pretty much created.

He combines wariness with frankness, but is easy to talk to and can be very funny. He says: 'It's best not to worry about what Bowie might think. There's a character in the new novel called Sweet Thing, whose name comes from one of the songs on Diamond Dogs. It's one of my many direct steals from Mr Bowie, which is why I think he might not like this book.'

However, Arnott hasn't provided a fictional account of Bowie's life at the time. 'Given my strange proclivities,' he adds with a laugh, 'I preferred to focus on the seedy end of glam.'

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
7th April 2006

Former TIN MACHINE member TONY SALES is now playing with new band WHY LIE.

The Valley-based trio until a few days ago were known as The Burke Wallace Group, named for the trio's guitarist, singer and founder, a dependable player and recognisable face on the local music scene for years. But the group - which also includes ex-DAVID BOWIE bassist Tony Sales and stop-on-a-dime drummer Jeff Urdank - decided to embrace democracy and dispense with the appearance of ego.

The band appear regulary at the Barrel on Saturday, and normally every other Saturday.

"It's perfect for us," said Sales, who, with his drummer brother Hunt, recorded with Iggy Pop, and cut three albums and toured the world as a member of Bowie's art-metal outfit Tin Machine in the '90s.

"We've all paid our dues. We don't want to get in a van and go up and down the state playing one-nighters. We've all done that. But we love playing music, and this is a situation that's working out for us."

WHY LIE
Where: The Barrel, 4545 Van Nuys Blvd., Sherman Oaks, California.
When: 9:30 p.m. Saturday.
Cover: None. (818) 501-9202.

BOWIE ON THE BEEB: 1973 WEEK
2nd April 2006

All this week on BBC FOUR tv is 1973 Week. Next Friday 7th April there are two DAVID BOWIE programmes that are featured as part of the celebration.

First up is D.A. Pennebaker's documentary 'Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars', which is followed by the best-ever rock documentary ever made 'Cracked Actor' from the BBC Omnibus series.

ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS
DA Pennebaker, USA, 1983
Friday 7th April at 9pm-10.30pm


DA Pennebaker's film of David Bowie's final performance at the Hammersmith Odeon as his alter-ego Ziggy Stardust on July 3rd 1973 is a glam-rock classic.

David Bowie seemed destined to end up on the big screen. Pennebaker recalls, "I have never seen anyone turn on an audience, men as well as women, the way he did that night. The minute he strode on stage I could see that he was a character looking for a film."

The film includes many of Bowie's greatest hits, including 'Changes', 'Suffragette City' and 'All The Young Dudes' as well as backstage footage.


CRACKED ACTOR
Omnibus, UK, 1975
Friday 7th April at 10:30pm-11:20pm


Produced by Alan Yentob for an Omnibus documentary first broadcast on January 26th 1975 which sets out to discover what has become of David Bowie in America after the death of Ziggy Stardust.

The BBC crew follow David around the USA during August and September 1974. Highlights include footage from the Sigma Sound recording sessions for 'Young Americans' and live performance footage from the Universal Ampitheater in Los Angeles on September 5th.


DR BOWIE AND MR. JONES ON ARTE
2nd April 2006

Tonight in Germany at 11:55 one of the best DAVID BOWIE documentaries made 'Dr. Bowie & Mr. Jones' is broadcast on ARTE channel. Here's the lowdown in German...

In der Musikgeschichte der Gegenwart ist David Bowie an Einmaligkeit nicht zu übertreffen. Mit seiner Musik, die sowohl das breite Publikum als auch elitäre Avantgardisten anspricht, hat er die 60er, 70er, 80er und 90er Jahre entscheidend mitgeprägt. Die Dokumentation beschreibt den kometenhaften Aufstieg des Sängers und beschäftigt sich mit dem Mythos und Menschen David Bowie.

Die Dokumentation beschreibt den Aufstieg des in einer Londoner Vorstadt lebenden Arbeitersohns David Robert Jones zum Superstar David Bowie. Stationen seiner Karriere waren 'Ziggy Stardust', die amerikanische Schaffensperiode, die Berliner Jahre mit Iggy Pop und Brian Eno. Der kommerzielle Durchbruch gelang ihm 1969 mit 'Space Oddity', in den 80er Jahren gründete er seine eigene Firma. Im Mittelpunkt der Dokumentation stehen auch seine Verwandlungskunst, die zahllosen Bühnenpersönlichkeiten, die er gekonnt zu inszenieren wusste. Im Gespräch mit Bowie und anhand von Archivaufnahmen aus fünf Jahrzehnten kristallisiert sich eine ständig im Wandel begriffene Persönlichkeit heraus.

'Dr. Bowie & Mr. Jones' zeichnet ein sehr persönliches Porträt Bowies: Zur Sprache kommen die Selbstmorde seiner Tanten und seines Halbbruders Terry, eine Prägung, die sich in der Morbidität vieler seiner Werke äußert: 'In meiner Familie war Selbstmord durchaus üblich. Meine Todessprünge sind eher metaphysischer Art: Ich springe einfach ins Leere, ohne mich vorher zu vergewissern.', sagte er einmal. Weitere Themen sind seine Bisexualität, zu der er sich bekennt, die Drogen, die ihn seine so genannte 'Schizophrenie' vergessen ließen und ihn fast zerstörten und schließlich die Malerei, durch die sich seine Fantasie vielgestaltig äußert. Heute sieht sich Bowie als innerlich zur Ruhe gekommener, gereifter Künstler, der zu vielem einen gewissen Abstand hat.
