    There's a Bowie channel on XM, including various celeb curators playing their favorite songs. I BELIEVE it's channel 104.

    Unfortunately, it ends with this month.

    I meant to mention this earlier.

    Allow me to clarify:
    It's not that I desperately feel the need for more Bowie. Yes, we have plenty to last a lifetime.

    The reason one more release would be so special is that Bowie was always one step ahead: of the media, of the fans, of his contemporaries.

    And wouldn't five more songs, perhaps MEANT to be from the other side of the veil... wouldn't that be just like him? Wouldn't it be the ULTIMATE step ahead, beyond Blackstar, even?
    Remember, in Dollar Days, he's "dying to push their backs against the wall and fool them all again and again?"

    I'd love to see him do it one more time.
    It would be amazing if he'd had one last card up his sleeve.

    THAT'S what this is about for me.

    It's NOT "oh, he didn't give me enough, this isn't fair."

    I mean, it really isn't fair. I wish the man was still around, making music or not.

    So on today's Eartling day (25 years otd) I thought I'd post my favorite sequence for what could make sense as an extended version of the album:

    1. Little Wonder
    2. Satellites
    3. Battle
    4. Tibet
    5. Dead Man
    6. Telling Lies
    7. The Last Thing
    8. American
    9. Nuts
    10. Baby Universal '97
    11. Law
    12. I Can't Read
    13. Stay '97
    14. Telling Lies (Feelgood)
    15. Dead Man (Not Dead Yet)
    16. Little Wonder (Dance)

    What's yours?

    One of the early running orders had i canít read in the middle of the album and baby universal in place of last thing you should do. When they recorded the latter the tin machine songs got ditched.

    also today, they released an alt tracklist too! Disco kong was betwixt dead man walking and telling lies. And baby universal, again, was before law. Wish they put out disco king with those miserable singles

    The John Frusciante remix of Disco King is excellent. Earthling is way up on my favorite Bowie record list. Reeves Gabrels in all his glory!

    I adore that one, too. If I'm not mistaken, it's actually the Danny Lohner mix, featuring JF and MJK.

    I love Reeves, too, SO much. Those things he does with that Parker Fly...MAN.

    @r_z omg, I absolutely LOVE Baby Universal: I'm partial to the earlier one, though, from the Hellraiser 3 soundtrack, probably because my HS gf and I used to listen to that one on repeat when we were kids.

    Two MOAR Brilliant Adventure era EPs coming for Record Store Day this year, one including a previously unreleased 1. Outside sessions version of "I'm Afraid of Americans"!

    Oh and they put out another video from the BBC Theatre show:

    I was really hoping Leon Suites would be an RSD release. Not looking good.

    At this point I've given up expecting any Leon material - for at least another decade anyway while they trawl through the vaults for more limited edition boxset material. Whatevs.
    Strange getting previously unreleased mixes for those Earthling singles though - just wish they'd be made available on CD or HQ mp3. I'll definitely be grabbing the Brilliant Adventure RSD bonus EP. The dribs and drabs aspect of this does wind you up though. Still annoyed that the Is It Any Wonder material wasn't added to the main boxset!

    They're definitely available to download from Tidal, in both CD-quality FLAC and MP3. For example: https://store.tidal.com/uk/album/214342487

    Cheers! I had no idea Tidal offered downloads - I had it down as streaming only. Rubbish to browse from my desktop but still handy to know.

    You can purchase the tracks individually from Qobuz; the 4 previously unreleased tracks ended up being about $6 (I don't know what they charge per track GBP):

    Nuts (Drum 'n' Bass Mix)

    Little Wonder (Junior's 7" Mix)

    https://www.qobuz.com/us-en/album/li.../mc6pbh6o3knwc

    Little Wonder (Danny Saber Unplugged Mix)
    Little Wonder (Danny Saber Dance Mix Instrumental)

    Are they essential tho? I'm glad there's Nuts, but do you need this remix?

    I like this version better than the EARTHLING version.
    It's creepy as fuck.

    Pleased to see this looks like it will cover Bowie of all eras - was convinced it'd end up another Ziggy / seventies focussed film.

    The soundtrack is going to be an absolute fever dream, if it's anything like Crossfire Hurricane was.

    Apparently Tony Visconti is involved with the soundtrack, so I have high hopes. The trailer, while only a teaser, gives me the impression that this movie will tug at the heart strings a little. Bowie means a lot to so many people, so I'm hoping they'll do his legacy justice.

    Says on Facebook that he worked on it "a bit" and has seen it twice, and thought it turned out "fantastic". That's encouraging. I'm mostly referring to the director's overall sound design approach, which is expressionistic to say the least. The Hollywood Reporter review that @allegro dropped says to me that some people won't get what they were going for, or like it, which is fine by me. Trying to let the tantalizing possiblity that they have full unseen concerts restored to IMAX for this, and we're only gonna get to see a few seconds of each one (for now) not spoil this for me. Getting to see a full '78 Earl's Court show restored from the original camera footage would be unreal.

    I never knew the program David used for writing Outside made it online
    Edit: I misread. It's based on the program.
