I still adopt the view that music itself carries its own message. That’s why I’m furious you didn’t get to hear the album because the lyrics taken on their own are nothing without the secondary sub-text of what the musical arrangement has to say.

ANCIANT Album Focus: Scary Monsters

“But he jumped into the furnace, Singing old songs we loved...”

(ANCIANT = A New Career In A New Town)

This is the second instalment of our album focus on David Bowie’s Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps).

Here’s another snippet from Tony Visconti taken from the introduction of the Scary Monsters recording notes in the ANCIANT book.


    + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - +

    When we began ‘The Man Who Sold The World’ David and I jokingly said, “Let’s make this our ‘Sgt. Pepper’s’.” With every album we made together since then, we aired that silly phrase again. On reflection, when I listen to ‘Scary Monsters’ it feels more like we made our ‘Revolver’. Maybe it’s because the opening of ‘It’s No Game (No. 1)’ is a tip of the hat to the opening of ‘Taxman’. We were pushing the boundaries further than we ever had with this album.

    ‘Revolver’ took about nine weeks to make. We spent four weeks at The Power Station in New York and another five weeks at my own Good Earth Studios in London. There was a two-month gap in between as David said he needed the time to write the lyrics and melodies. David had written the ‘Berlin trilogy’ in the studio, sometimes whilst singing the lead vocal on microphone! This was a departure from procedure.
