THE THIN WHITE DUKE Released His 10th Album ‘STATION TO STATION’ 47 Years Ago Today

Back in time

23 January 2023

Artist: DAVID BOWIE
8 January 1947 – 10 January 2016
Career: 26 studio LPs between 1967 and 2016

Anniversary album: STATION TO STATION – his 10th LP
Released: 23 January 1976 – 47 years ago today

The title track introduced Bowie’s new persona, the Thin White Duke
that became the mouthpiece for the whole longplayer. The late genius
used the moniker thereafter on tour.

Pitchfork said: “Arriving in the wake of 1975’s glam-rock-shunning, Philly-soul-fetishizing Young Americans, Station to Station offered proof that Bowie’s fascination with American funk and disco was no one-off lark. But if Young Americans often felt like a studied genre exercise, Station to Station filtered that rhythmic influence through some of Bowie’s other obsessions at the time: the austere Krautrock of Neu! and Kraftwerk, the occult, Nazism, and, yes, a whole lotta blow.” Score: 9.5/10.

Turn Up The Volume: Up there with his best work during his golden years.

‘WHERE ARE WE NOW?’ By DAVID BOWIE – R.I.P.

8 Jan 1947 – 10 Jan 2016

Had to get the train
From Potsdamer platz
You never knew that
That I could do that
Just walking the dead
Sitting in the Dschungel
On Nürnberger Strasse
A man lost in time near KaDeWe
Just walking the dead

Sitting in the Dschungel
On Nürnberger Strasse
A man lost in time
Near KaDeWe
Just walking the dead

Where are we now?
Where are we now?

The moment you know
You know, you know

20, 000 people
Cross Bösebrücke
Fingers are crossed
Just in case
Walking the dead

Where are we now?
Where are we now?

The moment you know
You know, you know

As long as there’s sun
As long as there’s sun
As long as there’s rain
As long as there’s rain
As long as there’s fire
As long as there’s fire
As long as there’s me
As long as there’s you

DAVID BOWIE Released His Final Album Today 7 Years Ago On His 69th Birthday

Back in time

8 January 2022

Artist: DAVID BOWIE
8 January 1947 – 10 January 2016

Album: BLACKSTAR
His 25th and final studio LP
Released: 8 January 2016
7 years ago today, on his 69th birthday.
Today he would have celebrated his 76th one.

Pitchfork wrote: “Blackstar has David Bowie embracing his status as a no-fucks icon,
clutching onto remnants from the past as exploratory jazz and the echos of various
mad men soundtrack his freefall.”
Full review here. Score: 8.5/10.

BLACKSTAR is a somber and sinister farewell record. Soul-stirring
and spine-chilling. Two days later The White Duke passed away.

Thank you for the music, Starman.

DAVID BOWIE Released His Brilliant Berlin LP ‘HEROES’ 45 Years Ago Today

Back in time

14 October 2022

45 years ago today, on 14 October 1977 the late great genius DAVID BOWIE released his highly challenging and superb HEROES album. It was his 12th longplayer. The second part of his Berlin Trilogy (although ‘Heroes‘ was actually the only LP wholly recorded in Berlin) co-produced with Brian Eno and Tony Visconti and contributions by guitar phenomenon Robert Fripp. The classic lead single ‘Heroes‘ unquestionably helped the commercial triumph of the album peaking at #3 on the UK Albums Chart.

PITCHFORK wrote: ” “Heroes” is the second installment of David Bowie’s Berlin Trilogy. The trilogy, and “Heroes” in particular, show all the signs of an artist growing up, shaking off the trappings of capitalist ego and success, and searching for a soul instead. It often sounds as if Bowie is conducting chaos, smashing objects together to discover scarily beautiful new shapes.” Full review here. Score: 10/10

TUTV: Along with Low, Ziggy Stardust, Station To Station
and The Next Day one of the best 5 Bowie LPs in my book.

Singles/clips: Heroes / Beauty And The Beast
