If you’re not a DAVID BOWIE fanatic I think you have no idea who THE ARNOLD CORNS actually were. It was one of the many side-projects of the late genius in the early stages
of his career. This one was formed in 1971, with its name being inspired by Pink Floyd‘s debut single Arnold Layne.
The Corns‘ first single MOONAGE DAYDREAM was released 48 years ago, on 7 May 1971.
It flopped, but the song as well as the B-side ‘Hang On To Yourself’ would appear later,
re-arranged and with reworked lyrics, on Bowie‘s 1972 Ziggy Stardust longplayer. The Arnold Corns‘ second single ‘Looking for a Friend‘ (with vocals by Frederick Burrett, aka
Rudi Valentino) stayed on the studio shelves until 1985.
