New Book: Heroes - David Bowie and Berlin

Sep 30th, 2014 by reaktionbooks

I want to bring your attention to our new title 'Heroes: David Bowie and Berlin' by Tobias Ruther.

This is the story of an iconic, inimitable artist and the city that changed him forever; this book examines Bowie's vital and creative years living and working in Berlin, where he produced the 'Berlin triptych' of 'Low', '"Heroes"' and 'Lodger'.

We would like to make all Bowie enthusiasts aware of this informative, unique and fascinating book. Tobias Ruther's book can be purchased from Reaktion Books in the UK (£14.95) or the University of Chicago Press in the U.S. ($ 25).

Hi there,

The prints are of 'Hunky Dory', 'The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars', and 'Aladdin Sane'. They're available here: Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane. I hope you like them.

Best wishes, Simon

Talpa TV zoekt zangers en zangeressen die precies klinken zoals hun idool

Aug 11th, 2014 by Talpa TV

Op korte termijn wordt er een nieuwe talentenjacht gelanceerd, waarin we op zoek gaan naar de allerbeste imitatoren van wereldberoemde artiesten en bands.

Dus heb jij een fantastische David Bowie in huis, dan zoeken we jou! Of speelt jouw band de beste Bowie covers en wil je dit heel Nederland laten horen, geef je dan nu op. Als jij de perfecte David Bowie imitator kent, horen we dat ook graag.

Tijdens het programma mag de kijker live - tijdens de optredens – zijn allesbeslissende oordeel vellen. Er is dus geen vakjury. Overleeft de act de eerste ronde? Dan levert je dat gegarandeerd een mooie geldprijs op. De nummers 1, 2 en 3 krijgen daar nog eens een flink bedrag boven op! Klinkt dit je als muziek in de oren?

Mail ons naar talent@talpa.tv en leg uit wie je na wil doen. Stuur zo mogelijk ook een video, of een link naar een video, van een optreden mee. Daarna nemen we zo snel mogelijk contact met je op!

Bowie & Hutch The Book

Jun 14th, 2014 by Peter

John Hutchinson informed us his memoir 'Bowie & Hutch' The book will be published on July 1th 2014.

Bowie & Hutch is an unusual memoir, Bowie a world superstar and Hutch a comparatively little known, semi-retired jazz guitarist living in rural East Yorkshire.

John ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson was Bowie’s musical collaborator, side-man, accompanying musician and friend, and his story should be an essential read for Bowie fans around the world.

An off and on musical relationship then continued for seven years, from the Marquee Club days to the fall of Ziggy Stardust in 1973.

At this video you can see John Hutchinson playing 'Life is a Circus' at the David Bowie fanclub meeting in Amsterdam, October 21, 2007.
