Bowie For Dummies

★  Bowie rarities: tributes, covers and unique recordings

8 January 2017. Today is David Bowie's birthday. He would have turned 70, were it not for his demise just under a year ago. Hence some ample room is provided for one of his greatest fans in NL, who has been at work cataloguing David Bowie rarities over the past year. What title to give this work? Tineke opts for 'David Bowie For Dummies', but we at WoNo Magazine tend to opt for "The Ultimate Guide to David Bowie'. If there's more it may be that it is unfindable or never recorded, just rumour.

3 December 2017. By now you are reading the tenth update, with, once again, a lot of new discoveries. Enjoy this largest piece on the blog too date, mainly by trying things out, like we have over the past months.

Anomy – TVC15 She’s a Deviation of Society, Disregards the Norms: She is Anōmy.” As per
the 45 sleeve of a mysterious trio who recorded in 1981 in Coram, out on Long Island. Their
“TVC 15” is the voice of the girl who vanished into Bowie’s TV set and is happy to be there.
Amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AkQtnFzChY
Associates – Boys Keep Swinging https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4zmCuE98PE
Au Pairs – Repetition. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDj8GwocBEw “Repetition” is an
isolated piece on Bowie’s Lodger. In it, Bowie directs his own Angry Young Man play, his tone hovering between cold observation and spots of anger. Two years later, the Au Pairs made the listener dig in further: take how Lesley Woods sings each line languidly, letting ends of phrases trail off, lacing “Johnny is a man” with bright contempt. Midway through his song, Bowie broke the fourth wall: “don’t hit her,” he interjected. If barely heard in the mix, he’d had enough. Instead, Woods keeps accumulating details, running through them again and again: bruises on her arms, food on the table, Anne with the blue silk blouse. It plays out every day, down every street: it shows through, it shows through. On 1981’s Playing With a Different Sex, which you should own.

harder than the Spiders From Mars did on the original track. Issued as a 1982 single, with a
take on Eno’s “Third Uncle” for the flip.

Beatstalkers – Silver tree top school for boys
Beck – Win https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYZYkuAAfWo Beck’s Rube Goldberg rendition
of “Sound and Vision” gets the praise but there’s more soul in his acoustic take on one of Young Americans’ finest songs (and which he raided for “Debra”).

Nineties has barely been tapped (so, there’s still time to try to make “The Motel” your own, young ambitious singers out there). However, there is a Polish death metal “Hallo Spaceboy,” in which the singer starts threatening the astronaut’s life halfway through. On 2000’s Thelema.6.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JUTL2wAX9M Bowie’s ballroom romance from Labyrinth
becomes a sweet, sharp rocker. Nina Diaz sings “every thrill is gone, wasn’t too much fun AT ALL!” with venom, then coos that she’ll be there for you anyhow, whether or not you deserve it (probably not). On 2010’s Adventures in Cloverland.

Love like blood – Heroes
Lucien Midnight – Space Oddity https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fL8PZ5wta0 For
grandeur, there’s the astronaut Chris Hadfield singing “Space Oddity” from space; for eeriness, there’s the Langley Schools Music Project, who sound like the children of Village of the Damned singing in harmony. Lucien Midnight (pseudonym of Montréal’s Frank Fuller) made Bowie’s trademark song a washed-out, bummed-out internal conversation: “la planète terre est bleue, qu’est-ce que tu m’veux ça me calisse?” (roughly “planet earth is blue, so why the fuck should I care?”). Major Tom also wears a fur hat here, not a helmet (well, he is in Montréal). From 2008’s Champion des Choses en Bois.
Lulu – The man who sold the world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TyFAnA9oPRE
Lulu’s 1974 single swings more. With a raspy Lulu vocal owed to vigorous cigarette smoking (composer’s advice) and Bowie’s eternal-amateur saxophone and backing vocals on center stage.

Morrissey – Drive in Saturday https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dq-ICKWn6Q Morrissey’s
relationship with Bowie was a stew of worship, competitiveness and cattiness, but he remained a fan despite what he said in the press, regularly singing “Drive-In Saturday” live in the 2000s, and shoehorning David Johansen into Bowie’s future legend. Recorded live in Nebraska in 2007; collected on Swords.

covers of “Rebel Rebel,” there’s Joan Jett’s take and some dozen others. Then there’s Shaun Cassidy’s trashy New Wave cash-in, with backing vocals from what sound like drunk Muppets; in its way, it holds true to the spirit of Bowie’s original. From 1980’s Wasp (produced by Todd Rundgren).

Tina Turner – Cat People https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eET6bytbUUA No surprise, she

goodbye to drugs, to ambition, to the Sixties, to ‘David Bowie,’ “Ashes to Ashes” is uncoverable, though many have tried. Here’s one of the better attempts, with “smoking pistol” becoming “smoking crystal.” From 2010’s

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BVoZhTP-GOQ Publiced 27 April 2013 A chance meeting in 1983 had David Bowie, Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook chatting away over beers in the Kings Arms in Salford. "...So we were all there just having a laugh and we joked that he should come n have a jam with us, then next minute - well, it was the next day actually, but i didn't expect he'd definitely come by - and we were in the practice rooms and we were playing Love Will Tear Us Apart and i was like, f%$K we're playing Love Will Tear Us Apart with David Bowie singing, this is crazy. We never released it - Bowie took a recording of it, and just layered some more vocals on for fun, sent it back to me..." - Bernard Sumner. N.B.

David Bowie’s vocal range:
The vocal range of David Bowie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvC9oOwU3lk
Published 19 November 2013
David Bowie is widely renowned as one of the most unique and influential artists of the 70s and
beyond. Known for his chameleonic nature and his extravagant stage persona, Bowie is also one of
the most interesting vocalists out there: in the late 60s/early 70s he exhibited a light, tenorish voice
with effortless upper 4th octave highs and a rarely exploited low register. However, starting with the
"Diamond Dogs" album in 1974, he began developing his trademark 'dramatic baritone' style: dark,
'crooning' lows, operatic, vibrato-heavy high notes, occasionally some intense belting and an
overall over-the-top, theatrical approach to singing, which, generally speaking, suit his music
Low notes:
0:00 Bowie greets the musical world with some easy B2s from his first hit single, "Space Oddity".
0:11 A solid Bb2, sliding down to a quiet F2, from "Bring Me the Disco King" live in 2003.
0:19 Strong A2s from "Beauty and the Beast" (with a slide down to C#2).
0:28 A menacing low passage from "Cat People", with effortless Bb2s and a great G#2.
0:50 Warm, resonant melody singing down to A2s and G2s, from "Word on a Wing" live in 1999.
1:09 One of Bowie's finest low passages from "Heroes" live in 1984. Bottoms at F#2.
1:31 Solid F#2s and E2s from "Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)".
1:38 Strong E2 from the backing vocal of "See Emily Play".
1:46 Classic low singing down to E2 from "Sound and Vision".
1:57 A magnificent low passage from "Sweet Thing", with G2s, F#2s and a couple of brief C2s!
2:13 Great G2s and some D2s as well from this creepy passage of "Sister Midnight", live in 2003.

2:32 Brief D2 from "China Girl". Great low singing throughout the song.
2:44 Impressive! The classic slide down from "Fame" done live in 2003: it bottoms at a very strong,
sustained D2. Bowie appears shocked himself.
3:03 Effortless low singing with lots of D2s from "Heroes" live in 2002.
3:28 Sustained C#2 from David's cover of "I Feel Free".
3:43 The classic intro to "Modern Love", with solid spoken E2s and C2s.
3:53 Solid B1 from "I Took a Trip on a Gemini Spacecraft", live in 2002!
4:00 The same passage from the studio version of the same track, bottoms at a cool fried G1!
High notes:
4:09 Magnificent operatic F#4 (preceded by a short G4) from the obscure "Fantastic Voyage".
4:22 A fabulous sustained G4 from "Cat People".
4:40 Crazy sustained G4 from Mick Ronson's cover of "Like a Rolling Stone", where David sings lead.
4:55 Some great, passionate belting around G4 from the soul-influenced "Win".
5:17 For contrast, some totally effortless G4s from "Cygnet Committee", an obscure early song.
Bowie's voice was noticeably higher back in 1969.
5:39 G#4 sliding down to a great sustained G4 from "Black Tie White Noise".
5:53 Some of Bowie's most savage belting, topping at G#4 from "Never Get Old", live in 2003.
6:16 Some surprisingly effortless G#4s from "Ashes to Ashes", recorded in 1980 when Bowie's voice
was already considerably lower.
6:31 Extremely easy G4s/A4s from the classic chorus of "Changes".
6:48 A great sustained A4 followed by some brutal belting topping at G4 from "Big Brother".
7:11 Light, easy operatic singing from "The Width of a Circle". Tops at A4.
7:33 Complete contrast again, very aggressive and rough singing from "Working Class Hero". Great
G4 and A4.
8:01 Passionate Bb4s from the classic theatrical coda of "Rock 'n' Roll Suicide".
8:30 Perhaps the best demonstration of Bowie's effortless high register in the early 70s: the legendary
chorus of "Life on Mars?" with classic Bb4s. This was never attempted live.
8:53 An awesome soulful Bb4 from "Rock and Roll With Me".
8:59 Very easy sustained A4s and B4 from the chorus of "All the Young Dudes".
9:13 One of my favourite Bowie high passages, taken from "Sweet Thing": fabulous G4 and A4
followed by a short B4.
9:28 Another classic clip, from one of Bowie's most emotional performances. The song is "Heroes"
and the excerpt tops at B4.
10:00 C5 from "Suffragette City".
10:06 Totally easy C5 from "Changes" live 1972.
10:11 Light melody singing up to C5 from "Shining Star (Makin' My Love)", an oddity for the crooning 80s Bowie.
10:21 A great sustained C#5 from "Here Comes the Night"!
10:29 That was very unexpected: solid, melody-sung C#5 from a live performance of "Changes" in
10:38 The anthemic coda of "All the Madmen", with lots of light C#5s and D5s.
10:58 The classic falsetto D5 from "Young Americans", one of Bowie's most glorious singing moments. Preceded by belted G4s.
11:12 Gorgeous falsetto D5 from "Heroes" live in 1977.
11:21 Another shocker: a strong E5 from a live "Five Years" rehearsal in 1976!
11:31 Hoarse sustained falsetto E5 from "Across the Universe".
11:40 The soulful harmonies of "Sweet Thing", topping at F5 in falsetto. The lead vocals get down to
11:55 Sustained G#4 sliding up to a crazy, non-modal F#5! Song is "Joe the Lion".
12:05 Faint, soft sustained G#5 from "Lady Grinning Soul" --David's highest known recorded note.
