  1. Has anyone heard of this upcoming release ? Not sure how I will be able to get a copy??? http://www.davidbowie.com/news/aladdin-sane-45th-anniversary-silver-vinyl-due-57611 This strictly limited one run only silver vinyl edition of Aladdin Sane will contain Ken Scott’s approved 2013 remaster and will be released on 20th April, 2018, 45 years to the day since the original release date for the album. This silver vinyl edition of Aladdin Sane will only be available to ‘bricks and mortar’ retail stores and not through on-line stores. CHANGESTWOBOWIE will be reissued on the 13th April with all tracks remastered on CD in a digipak sleeve, high-resolution 192/24 and 96/24 digital and standard digital for streaming and download, as well as a 180gram vinyl edition available randomly on its initial limited run in black and blue vinyl before reverting solely to black vinyl.
  2. The Australian Centre for the Moving Image is holding a retrospective of David Bowie's musical career as its centrepiece exhibition 16 July - 1 November 2015. It's based on the successful exhibition held at London's Victoria and Albert Museum and shares the same curators. This is a useful and interesting exhibition for any person interested in modern popular culture, fame and the courting of stardom, even though the curators failed the one test I asked of the exhibition. The easiest way to avoid the queues is to book on-line and print off your ticket or save it to your phone. The ticket gives you a time slot to arrive in. At the appointed half-hour you are granted entry to a crowded basement-level exhibition hall. You are given a set of headphones and a transponder. As you walk the exhibition floors you receive commentary, interview excerpts and of course you hear the music, all triggered by proximity sensors. The exhibition takes at most two hours to go through. It is expensive at $40 per person, however part of the ticket price is a free download of a David Bowie album. More on this below. The hall is partitioned into sections for each phase of Bowie's career: the start, the unsuccessful late '60's, the coming to public notice with Space Oddity, stardom with the Top of the Pops 1972, Mainman, Philly Soul, 1984 Floor Show, the Berlin trilogy, the 80's and then Tin Machine. Each section includes the influences on Bowie; what he was doing, seeing and appropriating; the costumes and video footage of the times; photographs, posters and handwritten song lyrics complete with crossouts. You learn for example that 'Fashion' originally was a longer, lyrically more violent song. There are gaps, significant ones. Those gaps serve to enhance the cult of Bowie, as there's no counterpoint to the exhibition's thesis that the man has genius: Neu! was not mentioned. Listening to Neu! reveals methods, approaches and music that are strikingly relevant to Bowie. The brilliance of Mick Ronson wasn't touched on, and yet the elephant in the room is, if Bowie's so brilliant, what happened over the last thirty years? The answer being Reeves Gabrels. (For the record, his name isn't seen either). The Laughing Gnome didn't appear, or was relegated to a footnote. Yet it was a vital stepping stone for Bowie. (In some alternate universe someone has smuggled a big banner into the crowd at a Bowie concert that says 'Play the Laughing Gnome'. Alas I don't think it'll ever appear on a Bowie setlist.) Also there was my failed test as already mentioned. On the other hand, a diligent and wide-reaching effort has resulted in many of Bowie's appropriations being laid bare. Christine Walton in Vogue 1971 was something of a revelation (her photo is copied here along with David Bowie's 1973 look). Also a revelation was the list of designers, theatre directors, artists and other creative people that Bowie networked with and called on. His strengths come through - in the 1960's and 1970's the judgement to stop doing things that weren't working and an omnivorous appetitie for popular culture that gave him a conveyor belt of new ideas and juxtapositions to try. Take Japanese kabuki costumes into rock concerts? Check. Marlene Dietrich styles into his shows? Check. Theatre set layouts into music performance spaces? Check. Hot new band needed to open the 1972 concerts? Roxy Music: check. One of the most egregious appropriations is mentioned: after seeing a dramatic stage entrance - the artist being lowered to the stage floor in a cage - the next night Bowie did the same in his own show. Particularly interesting for me were an original acetate of the Velvet Underground's first album, it's nice to see one at last! Likewise with an original pack of Eno and Schwalm's Oblique Strategies, albeit completely overshadowed by Bowie's taking of that concept and Eno's generative music to come up with a computer-based lyric slice-and-dice generator. The former took up a corner of a cabinet; the latter took up a TV screen and a full cabinet. The AKS synthesiser used in the recording of "Low" ""Heroes"" and "Lodger" is on display. The lighting coupled with glass reflections made it hard to read the curatorial notes, especially because the place was so crowded that people's shadows also interfered. A free download of a David Bowie album is included in the ticket price. Great! Well, not so great. It's done through Google Play, who require you to sign up. Then Google takes your credit card details before you can reach the download page. They say they don't take any money from you but why do they want your credit card details then? Reaching the download page you find seven albums as shown in the screen shots below. Note the star ratings from the punters on Google Play. Compare them with the ever-reliable allmusic.com, have a giggle, and realise you can't trust Google Play. Then choose an album and realise it's .mp3. Flac, .wav or other lossless formats are not available. At this point I gave up and abandoned the download. If musicians wanted to take sound out of their music then they would do their mastering in .mp3. Until that time comes I will seek to buy the same product that the musician delivered to the record company. (To my knowledge, record companies don't accept mp3s from their artists, so why should the punters accept a compromised product?) What at first glance looks like a benefit of the ticket is not. In fact it could be adverse to you. Best avoid it. Finally, what of my test? On arrival at the entrance I said to the concierge, "The only test I have of this exhibition is that it credits the song "Heroes" to both its writers, David Bowie and Brian Eno. Do that and I'll happily recommend it." Nope. Nada. Fail. acmi proudly tout that this exhibition has been seen by over a million people in London, Paris, Berlin, Chicago, and Sao Paulo, even before one hundred thousand or so Melbournians have visited it. That great song about two lovers separated by the Berlin Wall? Those visitors now understand that it's solely a Bowie thing. Expensive, interesting, lots of sound and vision, but a bit dodgy in the details, this David Bowie exhibition a mirror of its subject is.
