David Bowie - Kuulumiset

David Bowie 16-PAGE BERLIN BOWIE COVER FEATURE IN MOJO “And it won't be forgotten...” The November 2017 issue of MOJO has a generous 15 pages (plus cover), dedicated to “The Berlin Trilogy”. Here’s their blurb from the MOJO site... + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + DAVID BOWIE ALWAYS HAD a problem with Lodger. “We both felt the mix sounded thin and muddy,” producer Tony Visconti tells MOJO’s Mark Paytress in the new MOJO magazine, in UK stores from Tuesday, September 26. “David and I always said we’d remix it one day. But like a thousand other projects, it never manifested.” But during the spring of 2015, between work on Bowie’s final album, Blackstar, Visconti revived a long-cherished project to revitalise the oft-underestimated last instalment of “The Berlin Trilogy” (actually recorded in what Visconti describes as the “very unsexy” Montreux, Switzerland). The producer’s efforts have been rewarded with star billing in the new multi-disc box set David Bowie: A New Career In A New Town [1977-1982] and, more importantly his late employer’s own delight and approval. “As soon as David heard the tom fills at the start of Fantastic Voyage,” says Visconti, “a big smile broke out on his face. Then the special effects that were never there before. The reverb on his vocal. The guitar sound. He was so happy.” The full story of Lodger – its construction in exile, experimental excursions and crazy cover photo session – can be enjoyed in MOJO 288, along with new perspectives on Bowie’s Berlin period from Visconti, guitarist Carlos Alomar and Hansa Studios engineer Eduard Meyer. But among the tall tales of sleazy fun in the divided city’s bohemian demi-monde, there are more sobering insights. “It was a very sad period for David,” says Carlos Alomar. “I don’t want to put it in some glamorous place. He was fighting for his marriage, his son; his business was horrible, the touring exhausting and taking every bit of money that he had… Nobody looks at the loneliness.” + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + Also, free with the new issue is a 15-track covermounted CD, Neu Decade, celebrating the music that fed into Bowie’s Euro-exile – including Can, Cluster, Popol Vuh and Michael Rother.

David Bowie BOWIE AND IGGY 1977 BY SUKITA AT SNAP “I'll give you eyes of blue...” Following the success of Sukita’s 'Blows Up' Bowie and Iggy exhibition in Japan back in January, the photographer is taking his 'DAVID BOWIE 1977 IGGY POP' show (http://smarturl.it/DBnIggy77Snap) to Snap Galleries in London, the venue of many previous Bowie photo exhibitions. Over to SNAP for the lowdown... + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + DAVID BOWIE 1977 IGGY POP - Photographs by Masayoshi Sukita Masayoshi Sukita’s photographs need no introduction to fans of David Bowie. We celebrated Sukita-san’s photographs of Bowie-san with a broad retrospective in 2013. Now we turn the spotlight on 1977 when Sukita-san photographed David Bowie and Iggy Pop – a pivotal year in the career of both musicians. In April 1977, David Bowie and Iggy Pop visited Japan to promote The Idiot, Iggy Pop’s debut album, which David Bowie had produced. At short notice, Masayoshi Sukita photographed David Bowie and Iggy Pop at Harajuku studio in Tokyo during the visit. He sat them at a small table and photographed them separately. David Bowie tried on a number of leather jackets during the session, while Iggy wore a white shirt and a jacket. Photographs from that session would be used on the front cover of David Bowie’s “Heroes” album, released in October of that year, and on the front cover of Iggy Pop’s Party album, released a few years later. + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + Sukita also photographed the pair at the dual press conference to promote both Low and The Idiot, where our boys did a fair bit of larking around. The main picture in our montage is of Bowie with fan and birthday boy Iggy in Tokyo on April 21, 1977, Pop’s 30th Birthday. The two page RCA Japanese advert at the top was to promote both Low and The Idiot. Note that both utilise images from the session described above, and this was probably the first use of them. The Bowie shoot would surface later in the year for the "Heroes" campaign, as would shots from the Iggy session for the Lust For Life tour programme. Four years later one of the Iggy portraits eventually graced the sleeve of 1981’s Party LP and the German Lust For Life 12" single in 1982. The snap top left of our montage is Sukita’s signed print of the photographer with his subjects. We’ll announce full details of dates, location and content of the exhibition shortly. #BowieSukita #BowieLow #BowieIggy #LFL40 #LustForLife40 #BowieSnap Kommentoi
