DAVID BOWIE ON LIKE NOW! IN 1969
23rd July 2014

OK guys, if you're wearing them... hold onto your socks... Like Now!

DAVID BOWIE performing 'Space Oddity' on RTÉ Television's popular music programme 'Like Now!' in 1969.

This edition was broadcast on 13th December 1969 and recorded in Dublin. This was David's first ever trip to Ireland. Notice that David is wearing his Afghan coat whilst performing.

'Like Now!' was a weekly music programme featuring popular Irish and international artists, it was produced by Bil Keating and hosted by broadcaster and DJ Danny Hughes.

An article about the second season of 'Like Now!' on which Bowie appeared was published in the RTÉ Guide on 12 December 1969.

I believe the producer at RTÉ sadly wiped this performance. Hopefully someone has this in their archive. Fingers crossed for too long now.

Check out the RTÉ Stills Archive website.


BOWIE BARGAIN!
23rd July 2014

FOPP in Manchester are currently selling the DAVID BOWIE Box Set for a ridiculous price of £20.

This Box Set was strictly limited edition 10-CD box set comprising 5 x 2-CD sets of the albums 1.Outside, Earthling, 'hours...', Heathen and Reality; all with Bonus Discs containing remixes from Moby MariusdeVries and more bonus material (previously released on special editions) extra tracks from single releases and covers of classics such as Waterloo Sunset; all in mini LP-style card picture sleeves.

DAY IN, DAY OUT
19th July 2014

On this day, 50 years ago, DAVIE JONES auditions for THE MANISH BOYS in Maidstone, Kent.

The band are expecting another singer named Davy Jones to audition and initially they are unimpressed until Davie starts playing. He performs a cappella version of a new song that he has written entitled: 'Don't Try To Stop Me'.

The band are impressed and he gets the job as frontman.

You know the same old story trotted out about David changing his name to 'Bowie' to save confusion over Davy Jones of The Monkees? Well that's not quite the full story. There was also another singer named Davy Jones around at the time. He was Canadian-born (not American as advertised) and performing in the UK and around Europe. He was another reason David changed his stage name.

EXCLUSIVE TONY VISCONTI INTERVIEW
9th July 2014

Check out an exclusive Roland interview with Producer TONY VISCONTI by Jamie Franklin.

As DAVID BOWIE's producer since before the Space Oddity album - and sonic architect for everyone from Marc Bolan to Morrissey - Tony Visconti has the world's ultimate desk job.

In this exclusive interview, he talked Bowie, Berlin, the brutal modern industry - and why he won't be seeing U2 again in a hurry.

They spoke in Dean St Studios, London by asking Visconti about the start of The Next Day, Bowie's recent album made in secret over a two-year period...

Q: The big question: do you think Bowie will make another album?
A: 'I think now that he's opened the gate, he's going to make more records. I don't know when, but I'm sure he will. We recorded more than enough songs, and some extras became bonus tracks for The Next Day. But there were others that could kick off a new album. There's more stuff there.'

BOWIE & HUTCH MEMOIRS
1st July 2014

Bowie & Hutch book Now published and available is 'BOWIE & HUTCH' - the autobiography of JOHN 'HUTCH' HUTCHINSON via Lodge Books.

Hutch has been looking for a new publisher since 2011 (See BW News July 2011) and now it finally sees the light of day via Lodge Books of Bridlington.

This publication is available in paperback, containing 380 pages, with the cover designed by his daughter Hayley Forrest.

Hutch: "These days I am still a guitar player (shamelessly still the 'ex-Bowie veteran guitarist' on the gig posters) and luckily I still have an audience for my own music, even in my 'old age'. I live a quiet life (most of the time) in the open space of the East Yorkshire Wolds, and I have had time to reflect and write this memoir.

"This is my story as a guitarist and friend of David Bowie in the good old days and my book includes my memories of my times with David during his musically formative years with David Bowie & The Buzz in 1966 in The Marquee Club and with Feathers (Bowie, Hutch and Hermione) in 1968 as well as my first-hand account of the Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars groundbreaking Aladdin Sane USA, Japan and UK tours in 1973 when I played 12 string guitar as an "auxiliary" Spider.

"I played my part, my supporting role in the earlier days of The David Bowie Story, we both were young and he was my mate, never just my employer. So it's my story too, it's our story, the Bowie & Hutch story."

Quotable quotes: "Hutch's story is a fabulous journey that takes him from hometown Scarborough to the Marquee Club in London 1966 to the Hammersmith Odeon Farewell concert 1973 - via Tokyo, New York and Los Angeles. From a 'buzz around London' to worldwide hysteria... in the company of David Bowie. Jealous? Me?" - Marc Riley, BBC Radio 6 Music.

"You know I think the story is a great rock biography as Hutch helped one of the great innovators of 20th century music." - Dr Rock, BBC Radio York (aka Charles White, author of one of David Bowie's Top 100 Must-Read Books The Life and Times of Little Richard. 1984.

Lodge Books said the book will be available in the next few weeks priced 12.99 GBP plus P&P and will be soon available on Amazon.

Duffy Bowie Five Sessions The brand new DAVID BOWIE book Five Sessions is a 204-page hardcover book by Chris Duffy and Kevin Cann, which also has a foreword written by Sir Peter Blake was published on 30th June by ACC Editions to coincide with the David Bowie exhibition in Berlin.

Synoposis: Brian Duffy defined the image of the 1960s, and was as famous as the stars he photographed. Together with David Bailey and Terence Donovan, he is recognised as one of the innovators of 'documentary' fashion photography, a style which revolutionised fashion imagery and furthermore the fashion industry.

Duffy's most famous photograph dates from the 1970s and is the iconic and revolutionary cover of David Bowie's album Aladdin Sane, a shot that became the defining look of Bowie's long career, and has been referred to as the Mona Lisa of pop. The photographer and the rock star collaborated on four other projects: Ziggy Stardust, The Man Who Fell To Earth, Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) and Lodger. They worked together during the pivotal years of Bowie's career; when the king of glam was assuming and discarding extraordinary personas, Duffy was capturing them all.

Written by David Bowie's biographer Kevin Cann, this book includes anecdotes and stories from those attending the shoots - Tony Defries (Bowie's manager at the time of Ziggy Stardust); Celia Philo (designer) and Phillip Castle (airbrush artist) from the famous Aladdin Sane shoot; Francis Newman (Duffy's studio manager); Nick Roeg (film director); May Routh (costume designer) from The Man Who Fell To Earth; Geoff McCormack (musician and Bowie's childhood friend); Derek Boshier (art director of Lodger; Natasha Korniloff costume designer for Scary Monsters; and Duffy's son Chris who also worked on the Scary Monsters session.

Included are many unseen images and behind the scenes photographs. Illustrates Brian Duffy's five different photographic shoots with David Bowie, documenting Bowie's career and pioneering reinvention, as well as Duffy's special relationship with the artist over almost a decade. Includes some of the most famous Bowie images together with out takes and rare shots.

The book Duffy Bowie: Five Sessions is available to purchase NOW.


MCA STAGE SERIES: DAVID BOWIE EVENTS
1st July 2014

The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago already has one of the hottest tickets in town for the Fall 2014 season as it is the only U.S. venue scheduled to present the highly anticipated exhibition, DAVID BOWIE IS running 23rd September 2014 through to 4th January 2015.

David Bowie related events in the MCA Stage Series include the following:

Michael Clark Company: 'come, been and gone' (Oct. 25-27):
Ballet meets punk, and neither comes out the same. In its highly anticipated first visit to Chicago, the electrifying Michael Clark Company provocatively pays homage to the decadence and unbridled fun of 1970s club culture. British dance iconoclast Michael Clark sets his choreography in come, been and gone to the music of fellow rebel David Bowie, and collaborates with video artist and dance film pioneer Charles Atlas. Clark's dancers don Bowie-style leather jackets and echo his unique body language, building up to a detonation of jumps and kicks. come, been and gone pulls off a remarkable feat - matching the cool, alien beauty of the singular singer, who makes a cameo appearance here thanks to 1977 film footage of his track "Heroes". After premiering at the Venice Biennale in 2009, this "outrageously gorgeous piece," as The Observer called it, has toured internationally - [More details].

Bowie Changes: Bobby Conn plays Station To Station (Nov 15):

Bowie Changes: Jon Langford and Sally Timms (Nov 21):
In the Bowie Changes concert series, Chicago musicians shake down the Bowie songbook, recreating it their way. Alt-country rabble-rousers Jon Langford and Sally Timms, former collaborators in the post-punk band The Mekons, salute the Starman, waving a tattered flag for unforgettable Bowie love songs - [More details].

Bowie Changes: Disappears plays Low (Nov 22):
In conjunction with David Bowie Is, this hybrid concert series is a lightning rod for Chicago musicians to shake down the Bowie songbook, recreating classic albums - their way. Deep space pioneers Disappears bring to light the influential studio experiment that was Bowie's first collaboration with Brian Eno, in their tribute concert of the album Low - [More details].

NEW DAVID BOWIE BOOK
1st July 2014

Bowie by Simon Critchley A new DAVID BOWIE book is about to be published by OR Books is 'Bowie' by Simon Critchley.

Simon Critchley melds together personal narratives of how David Bowie lit up a dull teenage life in England's suburbs with philosophical forays into the way authenticity and identity are turned inside out in the artist's work.

Simon Critchley first encountered David Bowie in the early seventies, when the singer appeared on Britain's most-watched music show, Top of the Pops. His performance of 'Starman' mesmerized Critchley: it was "so sexual, so knowing, so strange." Two days later Critchley's mum bought a copy of the single; she liked both the song and the performer's bright orange hair (she had previously been a hairdresser). The seed of a lifelong love affair was thus planted in the mind of her son, aged 12.

In this concise and engaging excursion through the songs of one of the world's greatest pop stars, Critchley, whose writings on philosophy have garnered widespread praise, melds together personal narratives of how Bowie lit up his dull life in southern England's suburbs with philosophical forays into the way concepts of authenticity and identity are turned inside out in Bowie's work. The result is nearly as provocative and mind-expanding as the artist it portrays.

100 pages. Paperback: $13/£8 GBP. Paperback ISBN 978-1-939293-54-1. E-book ISBN 978-1-939293-55-8.
