Just published is the brand new title ENCHANTING DAVID BOWIE: Space/Time/Body/Memory by Toija Cinque (Editor), Christopher Moore (Editor) and Sean Redmond (Editor).

Available in three different formats: Hardcover / Paperback / Kindle, it contains 368 pages and published by Bloomsbury Academic USA.

Enchanting David Bowie: Space/Time/Body/Memory Synopsis: A longstanding, successful and frequently controversial career spanning more than four decades establishes David Bowie as charged with contemporary cultural relevance. That David Bowie has influenced many lives is undeniable to his fans. He requisitions and challenges his audiences, through frequently indirect lyrics and images, to critically question sanity, identity and essentially what it means to be 'us' and why we are here. Enchanting David Bowie explores David Bowie as an anti-temporal figure and argues that we need to understand him across the many media platforms and art spaces he intersects with including theatre, film, television, the web, exhibition, installation, music, lyrics, video, and fashion. This exciting collection is organised according to the key themes of space, time, body, and memory - themes that literally and metaphorically address the key questions and intensities of his output.

Reviews: This scintillating collection considers David Bowie's contemporaneity, showing how the star looks very different today - and how every different Bowie is a hero, if just for one day. With each chapter like a crystal ball ricocheting around a multi-level labyrinth, Enchanting David Bowie is full of surprises and delights for the fan and scholar alike. - Christopher Schaberg, Associate Professor of English, Loyola University New Orleans, USA, and author of 'The Textual Life of Airports' and 'Deconstructing Brad Pitt'.

Consider for a moment, David Bowie's extraordinary body of work, not just the music, but also his assimilation of different media practices: writing, painting, performance, film and video. This volume coheres around four thematic vectors - space, time, body and memory - to interrogate Bowie's remarkable corpus of cultural production. In the process, Enchanting David Bowie - itself a standout work - not only illuminates but also construes 'Bowie' - or versions of Bowie - that are at once compelling and fascinating. - Constantine Verevis, Associate Professor of Film and Screen Studies, Monash University, Australia.

You can purchase Enchanting David Bowie: Space/Time/Body/Memory NOW.

June 23rd 2015 London.

David Bowie Five Years 1969-1973 Box Set On this day in 1971, David Bowie performed for the first time at what was then known as the 'Glastonbury Fair'.

All of the formats include tracks that have never before appeared on CD/digitally as well as new remasters.

Exclusive to the box sets will be Re:Call 1 a new 2-disc compilation of non-album singles, single versions and b-sides. It features a previously unreleased single edit of All The Madmen, which was originally set for a U.S. release but was never actually released. Also included is the original version of Holy Holy, which was only ever released on the original 1971 Mercury single and hasn't been available on any release since.

Also exclusive to all versions of Five Years 1969-1973 will be a 2003 stereo remix of 'The Rise and Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars' by the album's original co-producer Ken Scott, previously only available on DVD with the LP/DVD format of the 40th anniversary edition of the album.

The CD box set will include faithfully reproduced mini-vinyl versions of the original albums and the CDs will be gold rather than the usual silver.

An alternate cover has been created for the 2003 mix of Ziggy Stardust by Ken Scott, which features an outtake from the original Heddon Street photo session. There is also newly originated artwork for Re:Call 1 featuring a 1973 in-studio image from renowned photographer Mick Rock.
