Bowie moves to Berlin
August 1976: Number 33 in our series of the 50 key events in the history of rock music


Jon Savage
The Observer
, Sunday 12 June 2011


In the spring of 1976, David Bowie was dangerously close to burnout from fame and drugs. He had just released his 10th studio album, Station to Station, and, with Iggy Pop in tow, was travelling through a Europe that he interpreted through his ambiguous obsessions with cold war politics and the second world war.

The mid-1970s saw a remarkable renaissance in German rock, with ground-breaking records by Kraftwerk, Neu!, Tangerine Dream, Faust, Can and others.

Much of this music combined rhythmic repetition, synthesiser pulses and melodic, perceptual phases into something that was both ambient and perfect to listen to while travelling.

The title track from Station to Station, in particular, inhabited this motorik feel. In April, Bowie and Iggy met Kraftwerk – an event immortalised by the German group on 1977's Trans-Europe Express. In late summer 1976, Bowie resettled in west Berlin and began a series of recordings that would reassert his position as a cultural leader.

During 1977, Bowie released two futuristic albums: Low and Heroes. Each matched a side of clipped songs with another of evocative, ambient instrumentals created with Brian Eno. The mood was withdrawn, remote and even, on occasion, lush. Their influence on British music in the late 70s and early 80s was immense.

Est-ce que cela annonce quelque chose ? Wink

Sunday Mercury feature: Halesowen dad was David Bowie's drummer
Jun 26 2011 by Anuji Varma, Sunday Mercury

HE was there when superstar David Bowie came up with his stage name; he was there when the young singer first thought of wearing make-up.

But now Phil Lancaster is one of rock and roll’s forgotten heroes, his presence at a pivotal point in pop just a fleeting footnote in the history books.

The dad-of-two, of Halesowen, West Midlands, played alongside Bowie in the superstar’s early group, The Lower Third.

Last night Phil lifted the lid on Bowie’s early years and also revealed how the group finally came to an abrupt end when their manager refused to pay up for a gig.

"We were only together for about seven months but it was so intense that it felt like much longer," Phil told the Sunday Mercury.

"I was there when Dave came up with his stage name.

"And we were sitting in the back of an ambulance when he first thought of wearing make-up!

"We were earning a paltry £4 each a week to begin. It really was peanuts."

When he first met young David Jones in July 1965, divorcee Phil was shocked by his scrawny appearance.

"There had been an advert in the Melody Maker and a meeting was set up with Dave at the La Gioconda restaurant," he explained. "He was in there using a payphone.

"He was as skinny as a rake and had shoulder-length blonde hair with terrible roots.

"I introduced myself and we had a good chat over a cup of tea. We talked about music. He even did a Bob Dylan impression for me – and it was very good.

"We gelled straight away. He had only joined the band a couple of months before me, beating Steve Marriott – who went on to front The Small Faces – in the auditions.

"Dave told me I’d made the band without having to audition and asked if I could come and do a gig on Saturday with them. There wasn’t even a rehearsal."

Phil was picked up from his home in Walthamstow, London, by band members Dave, Graham Rivens and Denis Taylor in their converted ambulance.

"They had this ambulance they used to drive around in, which was great. It still had the bell and sign. Me and Dave used to sit in the back together and think of wacky ideas to get us noticed more.

"Dave suddenly said: ‘How about wearing make-up?’

"I thought he meant clown make-up so I was well up for it. But when I shouted it over to Graham in the front of the ambulance he wasn’t impressed. He told me "Not f*****g likely.

"Graham had clicked exactly what Dave had meant. There was no way he would have been seen dead wearing make-up, not a bloke like him!

"Of course, a few years later Dave did follow through with the idea. It’s nice to know that I was there when it came to him."

The Lower Third landed a record deal with Parlophone and recorded two tracks, You Have Got a Habit of Leaving Me and Baby Loves That Way.

But neither was a hit. Not even close.

"We played them at gigs but they just didn’t take off," Phil recalled. "One thing we always used to play, though, was a rock version of the Mary Poppins song Chim Chim Cher-ee.

"We even played it at a BBC audition. That didn’t go down too well and we were told we didn’t make it through.

"Later on I found out that the BBC thought we had been singing out of tune and we were very strange. Obviously we thought we sounded great."

Soon afterwards, Dave introduced the rest of the band to Ralph Horton, who hailed from Edgbaston, Birmingham.

He became their manager and got them a deal with Pye Records, working with legendary producer Tony Hatch, the man behind the Petula Clark hit Downtown and the Crossroads theme tune.

Ralph also ordered the band to change their name.

"He said there were too many Davy Joneses about and he wasn’t keen on the Lower Third either," explained Phil.

"The next day Dave walked into rehearsals and announced: ‘I’m going to call myself David Bowie’.

"I always thought he called himself Bowie after the knife of the same name. But it was actually something to do with Dr barnados, the charity where Dave’s dad worked.

"One of the bosses there was named Bowie, so I think he just copied it!"

They band now came up with the tunes Can’t Help Thinking About Me and And I Say to Myself, both of which had been written by newly christened David Bowie.

"The first time we recorded Can’t Help Thinking About Me, Tony Hatch shouted at us that we sounded like something from a Saturday night at the local boozer," said Phil. "Eventually we got it right, though."

But the cracks started to show soon afterwards.

"Dave became a little more aloof and he would go off with Ralph quite a lot," Phil explained. "He stopped helping us load up the gear onto the van to and from gigs.

"It had always been a joint effort, but now he’d just sit down and watch. Instead of coming back from gigs in the ambulance with us, he would go back with Ralph in his Jaguar.

"Ralph criticised us more and more, and said that we needed to smarten up our stage appearance."

But the final nail in the coffin for the Lower Third came on the day of a very important gig.

"We were playing at Dave’s old college in Bromley at the end of January in 1966, so it was a big deal to him," revealed Phil. "But before we got there, Ralph told us that we wouldn’t get the cash from the night’s performance. He told us he needed to use the cash to pay for publicity for the new record.

"I asked my dad for advice and he simply said to us "No pay, no play!" We plucked up our courage and decided to tell Ralph just that. Dave wasn’t involved with the conversation and was standing to the side.

"The three of us told Ralph that we wouldn’t play. He simply said "That’s it then".

"With that The Lower Third and Dave parted company. It was horrible.

"Dave was very upset but I don’t recall there being any tears. I went up to him to shake his hand, and he refused.

"He didn’t speak either. We just cleared off.

"It wasn’t until four weeks later that I saw him again. He’d already found a new band called The Buzz and they’d taken our slot at the Marquee Club in London where we’d already gathered quite a following.

"I saw Dave setting up on stage so I went over to him to clear the air. I said ‘Hello’. He turned around and we shook hands. We were fine, but we didn’t mention what had happened.

"That was the last time I ever saw him in the flesh. Soon after that he became a solo artist and shot to worldwide fame."

Despite the abrupt ending to the group, and the fact that Phil has never received any royalties, he has no hard feelings towards Bowie.

"I don’t feel bitter about the way it ended," he said. "He was destined to work alone, and it would have happened eventually.

"It seemed the Lower Third wasn’t going to be with Dave forever. It may be that Ralph had orchestrated what happened. Maybe he wanted Dave for himself.

"I guess I would like to see Dave again. But that would only be if he wanted to as well.

"I do think he down plays his time with The Lower Third. He says in interviews that we were just a band trying things out. But there is no way he could forget us. I have no idea now what his feelings would be towards me.

"I have been two reunions with the Lower Third in the past, but Dave has never turned up."

Phil continued to work in the music business but also juggled a job as salesman until he retired. He now writes music in his spare time.

David Bowie now craves nothing more than a fry-up and life back in Britain


IT’S A QUIET LIFE FOR MR JONES
Sunday July 3,2011
By Natalie Chalk

ONCE a rock god with an insatiable appetite for sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll, 64-year-old David Bowie now craves nothing more than a fry-up and life back in Britain.

According to his supermodel wife Iman, however, he has given up hope of fulfilling his dream.

In a magazine interview Iman, 55, said Bowie used to ask her for a traditional fried breakfast every weekend but heart surgery in 2004 meant he now has to be careful about his diet.

While he used to talk constantly about returning to Britain, the family is now so settled in America he has stopped bringing up that idea too. The music idol is plain David Jones at home and spends his time reading and following her around their New York flat, Iman said.

“He doesn’t believe anything unless he hears it on the BBC. He is always following me around at home telling me what he has just read. He keeps me up to date on everything. He’s lovely in that way.”

Bowie also gives up time to help their daughter Lexi, 11, with her homework on ancient Egypt. “He’s a great dad,” Iman said.

Bnet

Je ne sais pas si bnet nouvelle version annonce quelquechose, disons que presque à chaque relookage il y a eu un nouvel album. Peut-être qu'un nouveau bnet présage la sortie d'un livre?

Il serait plus logique et moins couteux d'avoir un site moins orienté graphiquement sur un album en particulier mais regroupant toute l'oeuvre.

Je me trompe peut-être mais d'après moi le nouveau site sera gratuit, je ne vois pas de raison de continuer l'accès payant pour les membres. par contre une boutique en ligne pourrait remplacer cela...

On verra bien tout ça. j'en suis assez curieuse.
