So there's a new Bowie album and apparently it's going to be fucking mad.

Can't wait! :D

So glad to see it will be bonkers. The Next Day was relatively middle of the road, for me.

Was about to post this myself....So BEYOND excited... I hope he decided to properly promote this album....He definitely is one of the best concerts I've ever attended and I've seen several..."Glass Spider" Tour was a special one despite the criticism it received and Bowie electing to reinvent himself from there....

I was just going to post about this!! I honestly can't wait, I know he has apparently retired from touring but a few dates would be nice.... this along with radiohead's new album would make a great start to next year (unless radiohead's comes earlier than I expect)

Jay, retitle this David Bowie thread, if there isn't already one.

Coincidentally, I was watching The Glass Spider Tour video a few days ago, simply because my mum went to see it and thought it wasn't that good and I wanted to see for myself. The tracks aren't the best. This was 87 afterall, and Bowie decided to add virtually none of his 70s stuff. However its certainly visually impressive (beating Zoo TV by five years in that respect) and besides, Glass Spider is just the corniest and greatest way to start a concert ever.

I was also searching for a David Bowie thread...cannot believe we haven't created one in all this time!

I was 10 when I attended the "Glass Spider" concert, so I'm basing it off memory of what impressed me back then...I'd bet I'd laugh now when I watch the video to it! :lol:

One thing I remember was corny he pulled some female out of the audience which seemed was random, but it turned out she was a part of his band..... Little Richard of all people was supposed to be the supporting act, but he got sick at the last minute...that was such a hysterical pairing if there ever was one! But not as bad when Hendrix opened for the Monkees!

Low

Fantastic record. As for the new one, I'm looking forward to it! "Sue" was amazing, and it's time that the man did something crazy again: the fact of The Next Day's release was more surprising than the actual music on it.

January's going to be fabulous.. this, Suede, Tindersticks.

Low is the best Bowie record and I'm willing to fight anyone who disagrees with this.

That poll is absolutely criminal! No way to have an absolute fave of the three! That applies to all of Bowie's 70s output..... Although, I became a fan when I first heard "Let's Dance", "Modern Love", and "China Girl", and "Blue Jean"...sadly to say! :lol: But I was around 6-7 years-old at the time.....

Whoever said Lodger though needs a pat on the back. So underrated.

But it's like asking for your favourite Gabriel s/t. They're all great, but there's only one winner.

Sweet, Jay 8-)

Actually, ironic I say that the Berlin Trilogy is basically post-punk because The Idiot is considered post-punk sometimes.

For the record, Eno's Before and After Science and Thin Lizzy's Bad Reputation are also somewhat in the post-punk-not-post-punk category. It's a fun one to compile.
