Looks like you can stream here for a donation The Music of David Bowie

And I know Bowie was a weird cat but Wayne Coyne can fuck off http://pitchfork.com/news/64528-watc...ibute-concert/

What did Wayne do wrong? That was fucking awesome.

The band has played that song completely straight a handful of times since Bowie's death, I don't mind him having fun with it this time.

The Pixies "covering" Cactus deserves derision if anything, but it is kind of funny.

Uhh, no thanks, Jakob Dylan. Your "Heroes" cover sucked back in 1998 and still sucks.

I thought Stipe's version of Ashes to Ashes was pretty poor. His delivery was very flat and didn't really fit with the song.

Randomly listening to the Reality Tour album that's on Spotify. All the best moments are songs from ignored albums. Bring Me the Disco King/Slip Away fucking rules. Laz has said this more often than anyone, and he's right, the fact his post-Let's Dance albums are overlooked is a fucking travesty. There's more good than there is bad.

"I'm Afraid of Americans" is a monster.

Bring Me the Disco King is probably in my top five Bowie songs. That is probably a more fitting swansong even than I Can't Give Everything Away, both in the languid instrumentation and the weary, reflective lyrics.

It wouldn't have been a bad swansong, no doubt. Heat, also, would have fit nicely.

Perhaps he made all three with an eye towards his death.

I wish so badly he had made an entire album in the vein of the abstract jazz of Disco King. His voice is perfectly suited to that kind of loose instrumentation.
