New prints available now in my Etsy shop via these links: Low, "Heroes" and Lodger
Growing up in the 1970s in Britain with Radio One playing continuously on the kitchen radio ensured that I was pretty well saturated with Bowie during my formative years. Yet it wasn’t until I was doing my MA in Fine Art in my early twenties that I picked up a cassette of 'Low', played it, and fell instantly in love.
"Heroes" (watch out for those double quotes around the title, fact-fans) became my next Bowie must-have. This was ‘Autobahn’ for the Top 40 generation. ‘The Secret Life of Arabia’ continues to be one of my guiltiest of pleasures.
And finally we come to 'Lodger', a strangely straightforward album at first listen, but it’s more elbows than hands (if I can put it that way), and it points the way to much of the best stuff in Bowie’s ’80s and ’90s work. His vocal on ‘Fantastic Voyage’ never ceases to elicit goosebumps.
So, all three prints are now available in my shop, and if you buy all three there’s a special 10% discount here.
