A new show at the wirebender, compiled by Simon Wade. Again a choice from his selection that gives an insight in the creations of last century. This special one documents how Bowie’s avant-garde pop is used as a source for inspiration.
In Simon’s words:
who was very enthusiastic about it and contacted me, congratulating me by email.Less enthusiastic were the legal team at Soundcloud who took it down shortly afterwards!
Undeterred I re-present a mix of David Bowieâ€™s electronic Â instrumentals.
Having listened back over the proceeding year Iâ€™m caught by its simplicity and the amazing combination of guitar and synthesiser.Â I envy Fabba -J for having seen Bowie play keyboards in 1977 for Iggy Pop at the Rainbow Theater in London.
What a show that must have been?
During this time period I hooked up with Johny Rocca who agreed to collaborate via â€œTV paintingâ€ for the mix. Johny has agreed to share the visuals with Radio On via You -tube clips.
It was my first on line collaboration via the internet and was inspired by the Michael Clarke Company â€œCome Been Gone at the Barbicanâ€
Also included in the show are recordings fromÂ Ian Fears Â “Spacehead ” and a rare recording of CapsuleÂ module 111 module iv and v”
