    ^ Yes, just hoping they don't reissue the rest of Liveandwell.com too soon before I can find a sucker collector to buy my CD copy for $800...

    First clip from the biopic movie 'Stardust' is online. Will be weird that the movie has no actual Bowie music in it as his family didn't give their blessing, but it is what it is.

    Not yet, but looks like a CD reissue is still yet to be announced.

    well... https://www.davidbowie.com/blog/2020...-streaming-now
    and I saw it on a somewhat illegal website where it's listed as 2020 remaster, not sure if that's the case but that would make sense if it's reissued

    Sounds like this is a different version of "Hearts Filthy Lesson", as well. They're listing it as Phoenix Festival '96 and that's supposed to be the gig the CD version used as well, but they don't sound the same to me.

    So I came across this little nugget that certainly was new to me, so I'd thought I share it with my fellow ETS'ers for the chance it might be news to others. It's a quote by musician Bill Nelson, who - starting in the 70s - recorded a LOT of albums as a solo artist over the years and produced a few for others (Numan, for example). In '96 he released a heavily D'n'B influenced album, called "After the Satellite Sings". Here's the quote:

    "The album was an attempt to fuse rock and pop songwriting with the then cutting-edge rhythms of 'drum n' bass'. The album apparently inspired and influenced David Bowie's later 'Earthling' album, (according to then Bowie collaborator and guitarist Reeves Gabrels)."

    He collaborated with Reeves Gabrels on an instrumental album, so that might be where he picked that up. The album is fantastic, Nelson is a great guitarist and here are a few songs from it for you to judge for yourself on how it might have influenced Bowie on "Earthling":

    i've never listened to this^ bill nelson album but i'm familiar and a fan of his synth pop/new wave records from the 80s. looks like i should dig a little deeper into the 90s work!

    Yeah, his 80s stuff is where I started, too! The Love That Whirls probably being my favorite album of his from that period. It's a direction I wish Bowie would have gone in the 80s...

    I recommend checking out Atom Shop from 1998! I feel Nelson had a creative peak there, combining samples from songs and TV shows of the 50s with all kinds of musical styles ranging from D'n'B to Jazz to psychodelic Pop while maintaining a kind of futuristic theme throughout.



    Also, he put out a collection of unreleased songs from those sessions called Noise Candy. It's like 120(!) songs deep.

    Just seen this today - the BBC will be airing classic Glastonbury shows over a weekend at the end of June, and this includes the 2000 Bowie set in full.
    I have to admit I didn't pick up the DVD, so glad it will be getting a showing.
