MOONAGE DAYDREAM is a new documentary that illuminates the life and genius of DAVID BOWIE. It shows how he worked across several disciplines, not just music and film but also dance, painting, sculpture, video and audio collage, screenwriting, acting, and live theatre. The film reveals the celebrated icon through his own voice and features 48 musical tracks, mixed from their original stems.

The docu is written, directed, edited, and produced by Brett Morgen. Bowie’s long-time collaborator, friend and music producer Tony Visconti also worked on the film.

Director Morgan recently revealed that he suffered a heart attack while working on
the documentary: “Just as I started working on this film, I suffered a massive heart attack.
I flatlined for three minutes and was in a coma. My life was out of control, and I was entirely work obsessed. I put all my ego into my work and I’m the father of three kids. When you have
an experience like that, you think, what’s been the message of my life? Work hard and die in your 40s?”

The documentary’s title references David Bowie’s eponymous song Moonage Daydream his masterly 1972 LP The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, which introduced the world to his iconic, gender-bending, and groundbreaking stage persona, Ziggy Stardust.

The film will premiere in Cannes in July.
Theatre screenings will follow and in

HISTORY – 7 May 1971 – THE ARNOLD CORNS Release Debut Single…

7 May 2019

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.
