“I took a trip
On a Gemini spacecraft
And I thought about you
I passed through the
Shadow of Jupiter
And I thought about you”
• David Bowie
• Heathen (2002)
• 🎶 I took a trip on a Gemini spacecraft (Legendary Stardust Cowboy cover)
Few artists can sing about the cosmos like this brilliant man could.
One of the things I really, really love about Bowie’s music is the spacey vibe oozing from many of his albums, both old and new, and the beautifully overwhelming existential conundrums he approaches with a peculiar yet familiar style, continuously questioning love, life, this world and all human kind.
Also, I absolutely loooove pure Bowie, the one who has no desire of hiding behind his alter egos like he used to.
Heathen is one of my favourite Bowie albums and one of those where he seems truly comfortable just playing and being himself.
He is so himself that he covers others with mind blowing talent, Pixies’ “Cactus” being one of my fave covers off the album.
“Slow Burn” is the star of Heathen for me, with Pete Townshend killing it on guitar and Bowie doing his top magic on the vocals.
Also,”I’ve been waiting for you” is another highlight, the awesome Dave Grohl playing guitar on this one.
I could go on and on, but truth is every single track has its own beautiful part to play in the defining of this record’s character.
A mature, ripe album and, in my opinion, quite a spike in Bowie’s vast and oscillating back catalogue!

ZEROES, MARIO AND REEVES ON 6 MUSIC - “Something good is happening...” -
Shaun Keaveny and Matt Everitt, the most handsome double act since Millican and Nesbitt and BBC Radio 6 Music breakfast show presenters to boot, have the Bowie exclusive once again on Thursday morning (July 19). They’ll have the first radio play of the already streaming Zeroes (2018, Radio Edit), and a little pink monkey bird suggests they may also have contributions from two men involved with the creation of Never Let Me Down 2018: Bowie producer/engineer and guitar mentalist, , the most handsome double act since Keaveny and Everitt.
The programme starts at 7:00, but if you’ve read this after the event, it will be available shortly after broadcast: http://smarturl.it/Zeroes2018on6Music
