  • Sadder than sad...David Bowie Has Died At Age 69

    I'm listening to his new album Blackstar as I write this. It really seems a statement from a ghost. A creative genius in all he did, his genius continues on into his next existence.

    Rest in peace David Bowie. And thank you!

    Yes indeed - I bought 'Blackstar' on the day it was released after hearing the title track a few weeks earlier. I was actually excited about a new Bowie record - I hadn't felt like that since 'Low', and I'm happy to say it didn't disappoint. Every single track on the album is stunning. Such a shame to be taken away when seemingly on the crest of a new creative surge. We'll never see his like again. At least he packed a lot of living into those 69 years.
    RIP
    My new album is available now, here: https://thoughtexperiment.bandcamp.c.../supersymmetry

      I wouldn't describe myself as a big David Bowie fan, but I feel a genuine sense of loss at his passing. He had such a massive impact on music and culture over a long period of time.

      RIP David Bowie.

      :(

        RIP, The Man Who Fell to Earth :( I think he used to live about 4 miles down the road from me during the Ziggy era

          I was never a Bowie fan either, but he did make some interesting ambient-themed material with ENO, and I was struck when I read the news Monday morning. A big loss.

            Yeah, I think that sums my feelings up too. I think I only have 'Low' currently, certainly used to have a few more on vinyl back in the day. As he himself said, he was a great 'collector', pulling things and people together, look at the ensemble on something like 'Scary Monsters', still a striking slab of art-rock to this day.

            Though to be contrary, maybe my favourite work of his was his role in 'the man who fell to earth', absolutely perfect in the role.

                Yeh lah. This track sorted me out when I was growing up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YF_ESqYuhSQ Even now I can still mentally feel that lovely feeling I always got in me when I would miss the tune really bad so I needed it more and then BAM!! it would play on the radio haha. Christ I am knotting up in my stomach. Just listening now as I type. Memories man. Just because they are old, don't mean that they are less painful aye.

                R.I.P. m8.

                  Great track. I think Scary Monsters is probably his most consistent album. I've still got the original vinyl from 1980.
