    ^ 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.

    I have good news and terrible news.


    The good news is thereís a brand new live recording from The Outside Tour in 1995: https://www.davidbowie.com/blog/2020...ming-next-week

    The bad news? The NIN portion is missing

    Hmm, in addition it seems they performed "A Small Plot of Land" that night, but it's also missing from the track-list:

    https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/david...-53d5d371.html

    Bowie is the listed producer, so I guess it's possible he picked the running order while he was still around.

    The NIN set from that night was one of the few times they ever played Closer to God live as well.

    Fuck. And A Small Plot of Land is my favourite Bowie song. Could at least have included the beginning of Bowie's set!

    And Under Pressure was already in the setlist, i find itís bonus track inclusion to be superfluous, even if it was an old B-Side.

    I imagine NIN's set wasn't included because of rights issues, and because they probably want to keep the focus on Bowie.

    I'm assuming the tape ran out or something. Doesn't make sense to excise the end of the show if they have it.

    Would have been nice if the NIN camp had also released a press statement about a live album from this show...

    The NIN portion was at the beginning of the show, though.

    The end of the show is completely intact, save for a small plot of land which is missing.

    For anyone interested, you can find a partial recording of NIN's set from the Dallas show here: https://ninlive.com/shows/1995/19951013.html

    NIN's full setlist for that night is unconfirmed. Setlist.fm shows that both Piggy (NCSMN) and Closer To God were played. However, ninlive only shows the Piggy remix.
    @ninlive , can you shed any light on this?

    Source 2 here has the complete NIN & Bowie sets. It's not soundboard but is an excellent recording. & you do get "A Small Plot of Land". I saw the tour a few days after this in Tacoma. Still 1 of the best shows I've ever seen.

    PS: Reeves Gabrels is unreal good on the tape!
