ON THIS DAY...
19th May 2018

On this day, 11 years ago, DAVID BOWIE performs a section of 'Pug Nosed Face' and the audience join in with an impromptu sing-a-long. He then introduces comedian RICKY GERVAIS onto the stage at Madison Square Garden, New York for the finale of the H&M High Line Festival in 2007.

Ricky said to the audience that because he was introduced by David singing that song - that he could already imagine the puns that would follow. His favourites being: 'The Thin White Duke brings out the Fat White Duck,' 'Piggy Stardust' and 'Chunky Dory'.

After the sold-out Gervais show at Madison Square Garden, David then went on to check out THE SECRET MACHINES at the High Line Ballroom.

It was initially reported that David would be curating and performing at the festival, but on 22nd January 2007 it was announced that: "due to ongoing work on a new project that it will not be possible for him to perform. He will however continue to curate the event alongside producers David Binder and Josh Wood."

The festival ran for 11 days from 9th May to 19th May, with artist performances at various venues around New York including Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden and Irving Plaza.

Invited performers included: Air, Arcade Fire, Bang On A Can, Claude Cahun, Daniel Johnston, Deerhoof, Dirty Projectors, Ken Nordine, Laurie Anderson, Laurie McLeod, Legendary Stardust Cowboy, Meow Meow, Mike Garson, Ricky Gervais, Robert Stillman's Horses, Spanish Film Retrospective, The Polyphonic Spree, The Secret Machines and many more.

RICOCHET: DAVID BOWIE 1983 - HARDCOVER EDITION
17th May 2018

David Bowie 1983 All set for publication on 1st November is the hardback edition of RICOCHET: DAVID BOWIE 1983 by photographer DENIS O'REGAN.

If like me, you can't afford the £3,000 special collectors' limited edition, you can now pre-order the alternative hardcover edition.

Synopsis: In 1990, on their third world tour together, photographer Denis O'Regan told David Bowie what inspired him to take up rock photography. 'It's because of you,' said Denis. He was inspired by Bowie's 1973 Ziggy Stardust concert at the Hammersmith Odeon. Bowie's response: 'Nah, you'll probably tell Bono the same thing tomorrow night.'

In Ricochet: Bowie 1983, the official photographer of one of the most celebrated musicians of all time reveals intimate stories and pictures that offer an exclusive insight into David Bowie the man and musician. Taken on the 'Serious Moonlight Tour' - Bowie's largest ever tour that took in 99 concerts in over 60 cities - Denis's photos provide a thrilling, intimate view of life on the road with a unique pop icon. From capturing the theatre and mime of Bowie on stage to unguarded snapshots of the artist at his most human, every single image in Ricochet was personally approved by Bowie himself, and the result is a music photography book like no other.

Witty, poignant, and beautifully produced, Ricochet is a rare and spirited look into the life of an inimitable artist, whose music and performances have inspired - and continue to inspire - generations of listeners around the world.

This hardcover edition of Ricochet: David Bowie 1983: An Intimate Portrait containing 320-pages and published via Particular Books is available to pre-order NOW!

(Update: Ed. Note: The price is listed at £21 £30 GBP for this particular edition on pre-orders).

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: DAVID BOWIE

WELCOME TO THE BLACKOUT (LIVE LONDON '78)
2CD Set and Standard / High Resolution Digital for Download and Streaming

CHRISTIANE F. - WIR KINDER VOM BAHNHOF ZOO
Red Vinyl LP (Limited Edition "Brick & Mortar" Retail Exclusive)

IN BERTOLT BRECHT'S BAAL
10" EP (Limited Edition "Brick & Mortar" Retail Exclusive)

A Trio of Releases Highlight Bowie Live and Studio Recordings made between 1978 and 1982

All Three Are Available Individually on 29 June from Parlophone


David Bowie vinyl releases David Bowie released two classic studio albums between 1978 and 1982 (Lodger and Scary Monsters [And Super Creeps]), as well as a wealth of work for film, television and more. Bowie also found time to embark upon a massive world tour, documented by the double live album Stage, along with two acclaimed projects for film and television. On 29 June, Parlophone will revisit that prolific period with Welcome To The Blackout (Live London '78), as well as two special vinyl reissues exclusively for "brick and mortar" retail stores: Christiane F. - Wir Kinder Vom Bahnhof Zoo and David Bowie In Bertolt Brecht's Baal.

The new releases begin with the CD and digital debut of Welcome To The Blackout (Live London '78). This live album features performances recorded at Earl's Court in London on 30 June and 1 July, 1978 during Bowie's "Isolar II" Tour. The music was released earlier this year on vinyl as a strictly limited-edition triple-LP set for Record Store Day 2018.

Tony Visconti, who co-produced a dozen studio albums for Bowie throughout his career, recorded the 1978 concert which was later mixed by Bowie and David Richards.

The set naturally focuses on songs from the two albums Bowie released in 1977 - Low and "Heroes" as well as other earlier career highlights such as 'Fame', 'Ziggy Stardust', 'The Jean Genie' and 'Station To Station' and the first ever live performance of 'Sound And Vision', included in this set was its debut live performance. Welcome To The Blackout (Live London '78) will be available as a two-CD set as well as digitally for download and streaming in both standard and high-definition versions.

Christiane F. - Wir Kinder Vom Bahnhof Zoo is the soundtrack to the 1981 film based on the 1978 autobiography by German actress Christiane Vera Felscherinow. The soundtrack incorporates songs from several Bowie albums, including 'Stay' (Station To Station, 1976), 'Warszawa' (Low, 1977) 'V-2 Schneider' ("Heroes", 1977), and 'Look Back In Anger' (Lodger, 1979). Released on vinyl for the first time in 30 years, this fan favourite will be pressed on limited edition red vinyl and available exclusively at "brick and mortar" retail stores. The set includes Mark Adams' original liner notes from the 2001 CD issue of the album.

David Bowie In Bertolt Brecht's Baal features Bowie performing five songs that were written for German playwright Bertolt Brecht's 1918 play 'Baal'. Bowie recorded this EP with Visconti at Hansa Studios in Berlin in November 1981. Recently, all five songs were re-released as part of the exclusive Re:Call 3 compilation that accompanied the box set, A New Career In A New Town (1977-1982). This new limited edition 10" vinyl reissue comes in a six-panel sleeve that replicates the original 1982 packaging and is available exclusively at "brick and mortar" retail stores.

I'D START TO BELIEVE
7th May 2018

Polish movie director AGNIESZKA SMOCZYNSKA is currently working on her next movie entitled: 'DERANGED', which is a sci-fi opera set to DAVID BOWIE music.

She said: "It's about an investigator who is hired by the Art Crime Department to determine whether the murder of a 16-year-old girl is a crime or a work of art. We've started to work on it, and I hope it will happen."

Update: Agnieszka and Robert Bolesto have received the prestigious Sundance Institute grant to start work on their unusual new project 'Deranged', their forthcoming post-industrial science-fiction musical, will be inspired by David Bowie's 1995 album 1. Outside.

With 'Deranged', Smoczynska and Bolesto want to create something entirely new and different - a new genre.

     Having purchased the new book I can confirm that this is Gold for any Bowie/Record collector. The printing of the images is top quality and this revised Bible is not to be missed. - Martin Jones - April 20, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     Being a Bowie fan for more than 45 years and relying on the first edition of the book since 1994 there is only one word that tells it all: ASTONISHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Reto and Marshall. Love On Ya! What a great tribute to our MAINMAN. David would have loved it and probably will right just now. - Peter Gooren - April 20, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     For rating, there aren't enough stars, man. What can one say except it is sublime beyond the paradigms of what is and shall ever be: indeed, Satori must be something just the same. Look down here David, we're in heaven xxx - Mike Meehan - April 20, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     I am a small collector of David Bowie and I want to thank Reto and Marshall for what has been done. The book is a true work of art for collectors of EP 7" but also for fans of live concerts as the writer. I must say that the long wait was rewarded by the result. Ciao to all. - Gianni - April 21, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     I have orbited 'Planet Bowie' since 1972 as a young 11 year old boy.I thought i knew everything about my hero; I was wrong. This fantastic, well realized book is stunning with beautiful pictures. An absolute ESSENTIAL purchase for any Bowie aficionado. - Fred Smith - April 24, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     Marshall/Reto and all involved, Thank you for such a fantastic publication. The images are excellent, the information invaluable - I now have a collection to be proud of all under the cover of this beautiful book!! - Craig Wilkinson - April 24, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     As a Bowie collector since 1972 my early years of gathering information on releases was by word and mouth and whatever information I could glean. Fast forward years I don't want to count and I have what I can only describe as a Bowie singles bible. The set out, information and photographic images are second to none. I can't imagine the work and effort that went into producing this masterpiece. An absolute brilliant read and a mine of information. As a Bowie fan I cannot recommend this high enough,Reto and Marshall take a bow chaps you deserve it. - Paul Osborne - April 24, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     A "must have", between the numerous books about Bowie, great work from Jarman and Stöcklin!!. - Daniel Achedjian - April 24, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     Achat essentiel. Précis et très bien documenté. - Georges - April 25, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     To Marshall, Reto and all of the other devoted contributors involved in bringing to fruition, this UNBELIEVABLY SUPERB updated version of Mr Jarman's 1994 'Bible' - You're Heroes, For Ever and Ever!!! - Gary Wallace - April 25, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     Absolutely over the moon this amazing book has finally arrived (a year in waiting). The attention to detail and information is unbelievable. A Bowie World 7" Record Discography for all Bowie vinyl collectors. I can't describe how great this really is. Reto and Marshall have produced a benchmark which will take some beating. As a huge huge Bowie fan from 72 onwards my mind boggles at the thought of one day owning an Indian, South African or a Thai rarity. I know these exist because this book informs you of the fact. Just an amazingly brilliant product. - Michael Tobin - April 25, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     I had the 1st edition of this book and mislaid it. Every time one came up I was outbid. I couldn't believe it when it was being reprinted I had to have one. Marshall and Reto have excelled in every department just can't stop picking it up and reading it. Many thanks you guys you truly are Star Men. - Trev - April 25, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     Can only agree with the other comments. Great work chaps. - Peter Davis - April 25, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     When the news of this updated version of Marshall Jarman's book David Bowie World 7" Records Discography 1964-1981 broke, it was a hotly anticipated release amongst the Bowie fraternity and the deluxe hardback version swiftly sold out on preorder, in fact there was so much interest in this book that a soft cover version has been released to satisfy the demand. Marshall Jarman, the renown authority and prolific dealer of Bowie records along with Reto Stocklin, arguably the premier collector, set about on this mammoth task compiling this wonderful book, backed by an army of serious Bowie collectors who also contributed. This book took an enormous amount of time to produce as they gathered all the information they needed to make it complete, but boy was it worth it!!!!, beautifully presented, packed with information and all in glorious colour. If you collect David Bowie 7" singles then this is THE Bowie bible for you!! - Steven Price - April 25, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     I have many Bowie books in my collection this work of Art surpasses them all. We are forever thankful to Marshall and Reto... not forgetting all the contributors. - David Williams - April 25, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     A beautiful masterpiece about beautiful masterpieces, these 2 guys and all that collaborated rock! - Dirk Slegers - April 26, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

     Fantastic tribute to our hero, a massive thanks to all the people behind this wonderful compiled masterpiece. My bank balance is going to take a hit. How much more is there still to be unearthed. How about all the footage that must be in the hands of non bowie fans!!!! - Paul Manson - April 26, 2018 (Rated 5 out of 5 stars).

For those of you who can't afford the £3,000 special collectors' limited edition [bowie1983book.com], you can now pre-order the hardcover edition Ricochet: David Bowie 1983: An Intimate Portrait which is scheduled for publication on 6th September.

Synopsis: In 1990, on their third world tour together, photographer Denis O'Regan told David Bowie what inspired him to take up rock photography. 'It's because of you,' said Denis. He was inspired by Bowie's 1973 Ziggy Stardust concert at the Hammersmith Odeon. Bowie's response: 'Nah, you'll probably tell Bono the same thing tomorrow night.'

In Ricochet: Bowie 1983, the official photographer of one of the most celebrated musicians of all time reveals intimate stories and pictures that offer an exclusive insight into David Bowie the man and musician. Taken on the 'Serious Moonlight Tour' - Bowie's largest ever tour that took in 99 concerts in over 60 cities - Denis's photos provide a thrilling, intimate view of life on the road with a unique pop icon. From capturing the theatre and mime of Bowie on stage to unguarded snapshots of the artist at his most human, every single image in Ricochet was personally approved by Bowie himself, and the result is a music photography book like no other.

Witty, poignant, and beautifully produced, Ricochet is a rare and spirited look into the life of an inimitable artist, whose music and performances have inspired - and continue to inspire - generations of listeners around the world.

The hardcover edition of Ricochet: David Bowie 1983: An Intimate Portrait containing 320-pages and published via Particular Books is scheduled for publication on 1st November - you can pre-order NOW!

(Update: Ed. Note: The price is listed at £21 £30 GBP for this particular edition on pre-orders).
