EXCLUSIVE! FREE TO ENTER COMPETITION - NO. 4
As the millennium ends, DAVID BOWIE is about to enter his fifth decade of making music. Thirty years on from his first hit single, 'Space Oddity', he remains the most influential rock star of the post-Woodstock generation.
'STRANGE FASCINATION' chronicles David Bowie's career against the colourful backdrop of post-Beatles pop culture, glam-era gender-bending, eighties corporate schlock and nineties laddish Britpop, and assembles a mass of new evidence about Bowie's studio craft, his concert performances and his cultural impact.
Written by writer and long-time Bowie fan, David Buckley, 'Strange Fascination' contains exclusive contributions from many of the leading players in Bowie's career, such as Tony Visconti, Ken Scott, Carlos Alomar, Reeves Gabrels and Nile Rodgers. It also includes many previously unpublished black-and-white and colour photographs. With Bowie's new album, 'hours...', scheduled for release on 5 October, and seventeen of his albums, from Space Oddity through to Tin Machine, due for reissue in September, Strange Fascination should delight Bowie's hardcore following and introduce rock fans to the most thrilling body of popular music ever recorded.
'Strange Fascination' is published by Virgin on 23rd September 1999 priced £20.00. If you prefer not to enter this free competition you can still purchase a copy of 'Strange Fascination' at the SPECIAL DISCOUNT PRICE of £16.00 including postage and packing via this web site. Full details here.
