Not Fade Away 2013: Where Are We Now?, by David Bowie
Monday 23 June 2014

Away: 60 years, 60 songs
Teddy Jamieson.


"It is a quivering ghost of a Bowie song, the imprint of his fabulous past gently laid over a forlorn, elegiac yet life-affirming drape of meditations and reveries about missing the old Europe and, possibly, youth. It is becoming of the man, and of the star." - Chris Roberts, Quietus

"I'm not an innovator. I'm really just a Photostat machine. I pour out what has already been fed in." - David Bowie

We are closing in on the present now. Closing in on an ending. Almost finished. We've travelled from the days before rock and roll, the days before me, possibly the days before you too, to the day before yesterday. How far have we come? Almost a lifetime. Or getting on for it. We are all older but probably no wiser.


So let's console ourselves with a return from the dead. Or near enough. The unexpected reappearance of the prince across the water, last seen in this place back in 1974.

The first time I heard David Bowie's comeback single in January of last year - after almost a decade of radio silence - it sounded such a frail, fragile thing. A diminished return. But maybe I was projecting the rumours of his ill health that had filled the vacuum of his long silence. True, his voice sounds a little ragged, a little cracked on Where Are We Now? and the tune seems at first listen slight and thin. Yet it's a song that grows and grows. The surprise of its appearance was fun, but in the end it was more than strong enough to bear the weight of our expectation.

It's a song full of ghosts. Bowie's ghosts. The ghosts of his Berlin era. "It's a Bowie from the present remembering a Bowie from the past imagining a Bowie from the future leading to a brand new Bowie, pretending to keep it secret, and effortlessly reaching everyone who is interested," Paul Morley said when it came out.

But they're my ghosts too. And probably yours. Ghosts of the Cold War, ghosts of our pop culture past. A recorded seance of who we once were and what we once believed. As the man himself says, just walking the dead.

We are older now. David, you, me. And pop is older. It's in its seventh decade. So maybe it doesn't matter any more. Maybe it can't. Certainly we don't invest in it the way we once did. Does that suggest we've lost something? Or does it suggest we've simply grown up? "Please don't put your life in the hands/ Of a Rock 'n' Roll band who'll throw it all away", as someone called Noel once wrote.

That's probably a healthy thing. It means that we can find the humour in Bowie's intervention in the independence debate (yes, he's allowed his opinion but we're allowed to point out the contradiction of saying, "Stay with us, Scotland" when he's not been resident in the UK for a long time).

But the getting of wisdom also entails a loss of innocence. And now, in this year and last year and maybe a few years before that, it's hard to see pop the way we did in the fifties and sixties and seventies and maybe - via rave culture - as late as the 1990s. As something revolutionary, as something that could cultivate and engender change.

Where Are We Now? is obviously a lament. But for what? For him, I guess, his past. And for the rest of us? A lament for lost youth of course. That's inevitable. But maybe, too, a lament for the desire that has powered so many of the songs that we've talked about here over the last 61 weeks, a desire for a new world they might have offered us, even if it only exists for three minutes.

And yet ... There's a pre-pop world and a post-pop world. We now live in the latter. Lots of things haven't changed. Lots of things are worse. But some are better. Our acceptance of otherness. Our attitudes to race and sex and sexuality. And they have changed mostly for the better since the 1950s. Are they perfect? No, of course not. But we now live in a world where you can't put cards in the window saying "No blacks, No Irish, no dogs" and where to be gay is not to be criminalised.

And pop did that. Or helped in the process. Bowie was part of that process. For some of us a major part.

Where are we now? In a different place. Nothing's ended just yet.

See you next week?

I've just been told that the Godfather box is a 6 cd box with rare stuff from the 60's to the present. 5 discs divided into decades with 1 disc of songs written by Bowie, but performed by others (plus some duets).
There will be at least 3 discs of unreleased material, both live and studio. It should be available in July.

8 Music Biopics We'd Love To See: David Bowie, Nick Drake, And More

With the recent news of biopics about N.W.A. and Aaliyah, I started thinking about some musicians whose lives I'd like to see dramatized in a film. Here are eight musical biopics that I'd love to see.

2. David Bowie

I understand that a film about David Bowie's Berlin period is being made, and while that's my favorite period of his career, I'd love to see a film about his entire career and the countless transformations he's gone through. I mean, we're talking about a guy who did so much cocaine that he recorded an entire album and didn't remember it (and the album was still a classic).

Ah si !
Ne serait-ce que par curiosité !
Et si c'est fait intelligemment, créativement et avec talent…
Déjà, se focaliser sur la période berlinoise me semble une bonne idée, non ?

Bon courage pour trouver un acteur aussi classieux et habité que Bowie en 77 ...

10 Imagined Fragrances By Musicians: Prince, David Bowie, And More

One Direction's new fragrance "You & I" will be released this summer. Boybands have it pretty easy when it comes to trying to sell their fragrance. I mean, what teenybopper wouldn't want to smell like Harry Styles' dreamgirl? Musicians from other genres with older fanbases, however, don't have the luxury of crazed tweens and would probably have a hard time selling more than a few bottles. With that in mind, we decided to compile a list of musicians we'd like to see fragrances from and what those fragrances might smell like.

2. Iggy Pop

Iggy Pop's fragrance, with the very intriguing name "Dirt," will make you smell as if you were in the front row of a Stooges concert in 1970, which means you'll smell like sweat, beer, blood, and peanut butter.

3. David Bowie

To celebrate Bowie's insane diet during his 1976 "Thin White Duke" phase, his fragrance "Golden Years" contains the essence of red peppers, milk, and cocaine. Due to the bits of cocaine, this fragrance is illegal pretty much everywhere, but if you actually thought it would smell nice, then you deserve to be thrown in prison.

Terrible Noise: David Bowie’s ‘Young Americans’
POSTED ON JUNE 26, 2014

Simon Sizer
For On magazine


I think I can claim to be a fan of David Bowie if anyone can.

Up to a point.

If you’re really hardcore and want to talk about who played in Tin Machine, or even what precisely Tin Machine was, you’ll expose the relative shallowness of my knowledge rather quickly. Bowie has released 26 studio albums over the course of his career. I’ve got seven of them. I’ve listened regularly to about nine. But then, that’s one of the joys of arriving late to the catalog of any long-lived rock legend.

In the interests of exploration, I’ve been listening a lot to “Young Americans” over the last week, perhaps with a touch of subconscious irony as I move into the category of not-so-young American. This might not be entirely inappropriate. “Young Americans” is more or less Bowie’s soul album, Motown as reinterpreted by a dude who spent a number of years playing a very convincing space alien.

Take a look at the cover, which features Bowie dolled up in full teen heartthrob mode, cigarette in hand, hair appropriately feathered — then contrast that with his previous record, “Diamond Dogs,” whose cover is, suffice it to say, significantly different.

David Bowie’s soul singer persona is also a costume, but not by any means an insincere one, although in reading interviews from that time it seems he was well aware of the tensions involved in presenting a white version of black music. Running some of those classic soul riffs through the engine of mid-1970s popular music was part of the point, artistically.

So, is “Young Americans” likely to be your favorite Bowie record? It does occupy an interesting space between glam rock and the moody mellow Berlin records made with Brian Eno. Bowie sounds at ease here, vocally, which is interesting considering how ill at ease he was in his personal life at this time. Despite having some of the feel of a self-conscious art project, “Young Americans” is pretty easy listening, shading at points into outright Easy Listening. The saxophone parts in particular seem to presage the 1980s.

At the time I imagine this sounded pretty weird to fans still in the grips of glam rock, but with 39 years of hindsight available, it slots more easily into Bowie’s ever-mutating catalog, and after so long and heavy a radio presence, it’s a downright delight to listen to and reclaim some of these lesser-known songs. Kind of like hiding in plain view.

But Glastonbury is, as ever, a hotbed of rumours. Whispers are circulating that David Bowie and Jonathan Ross, who both appear on Arcade Fire's new album, will take to the stage on Friday.

Aquest diumenge David Bowie protagonitza el RAR més camaleònic

Els enllaços a partir de l’artista anglès ens duran a explorar les mil cares de l’androgínia, la verdor del laberint d’Horta i el poder d’atracció dels imants. A més, el suplement recala a Brixton, un dels barris de moda de Londres

ARA Barcelona | Actualitzada el 27/06/2014 18:01

David Bowie és difícil d’encasellar en un sol gènere musical perquè, al llarg de la seva carrera, ha mudat la pell infinitat de vegades. Del 'glam rock' al 'soul', passant pel pop i la música electrònica. No és casualitat que se’l conegui amb el sobrenom d''El Camaleó'. El RAR d’aquest diumenge s’endinsa en la seva vida i obra. El resultat és un número tan divers i acolorit com la pròpia personalitat de l’autor d’himnes com 'Heroes' o 'Space Oddity'.

El RAR arrenca amb una panoràmica actual del barri de Brixton, on va néixer i créixer David Robert Jones (nom real de Bowie). Brixton solia ser un indret conflictiu però, durant els últims anys, s’ha convertit en la meca de modernets i artistes. Estirant el fil britànic, el suplement intenta respondre una pregunta: és el menjar anglès realment tan dolent com diuen? Un article signat per Trinitat Gilbert detalla què es cou avui als fogons del Regne Unit.

Al tema central, el RAR analitza el concepte d’androgínia. Fa poc més de quaranta anys, David Bowie va sacsejar el món amb el llegendari Ziggy Stardust, un personatge inventat per ell i d’aparença ambigua, a mig camí entre el dandi i la diva. A partir d’aquest alter ego, el RAR desvelarà una galeria de personatges que jugaven (i juguen) a la confusió de gènere. Alguns, com Grace Jones o Boy George, són actuals. Però d’altres com l’espia Charles de Beaumont, conegut com el Chevalier d'Eon, ja despistaven els seus conciutadans fa segles.

A banda de ser una icona musical, el suplement també treu a la llum altres facetes de Bowie. Com la d’actor. Als anys 80, el cantant britànic va protagonitzar 'Laberint', un film fantasiós en què el seu personatge martiritzava una joveníssima Jennifer Connelly. A partir d’aquesta pel·lícula, la revista ens trasllada a l’inquietant món dels laberints, aturant-se en el d’Horta però també en el qual va sorgir de la imaginació de Jorge Luis Borges.
Per acabar, el RAR s'atura a parlar d’Iman, casada amb Bowie des de fa més de 20 anys. El nom i el poder d’atracció de la model recondueixen el suplement als imants, unes peces que sempre han despertat fascinació. Fins i tot es diu que a Cleòpatra li agradava dormir envoltada d’objectes magnètics perquè pensava que la mantindrien jove i bella.
