4 Songs, 18 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

It’s impossible to hear No Plan as anything but Bowie confronting his terminal diagnosis—it opens with a revamp of Blackstar’s “Lazarus” and the lines, “Look up here, I’m in heaven”; in “No Plan”, his lack of regrets untethers him from earthly concerns. The proggy guitar of “Killing a Little Time” emphasises his rage, yet the rapturous intensity of “When I Met You” celebrates the great love who rearranged his soul. Sublime.

Out in Space it's Always January 8th

When I first listened to Blackstar on January 8th 2016 I never wanted it to end. By January 10th I needed to listen to it on repeat just to cope.

These additional tracks being released 1 year later help to fill the void.

The track "No Plan" is beautiful and listening to his voice again is needed therapy.

Thank you David.

I can't express how much I love these songs. They continue the incredibly rich sound of the Blackstar album with more touching lyrics that make you miss this man even more than you think you could. Thank you David for continuing to inspire me time and time again. You may be gone but when I press play, you are right back here again.

David Bowie - Last Latest Release? 2017/NOW

Thank you Mr Jones 2017/THERE

I am officially in mourning as David Bowie's 70th Birthday and first Anniversary approaches. It might seem a little insane, over the top for a fifty year old man to state this. The reason is simple, he shone a light into dark places for me, because he genuinely understood his audience. David Bowie was the last Cracked Actor.

The whole thing was a show, it was genius. He crossed the line into each Chatacter he played, lost his own reality in his own show and that is why he killed off the act and came back reinvented. He killed Ziggy Stardust and the Thin white Duke nearly killed him, barreling into cocaine and alcohol addiction to ultimately recover, his greatest achievement.

He lost his way and found his way back over and over again. He had a talent to bring out the very best in the musicians he worked with and was a humble man.

The real David Bowie, was the man that died - David Jones, a London boy born in a struggling family just like everyone else.

His guitarist today said... David made me play, record it once. If I played twice or three times I would start to think, and when I think, things go sideways. Earl Slick 2017/HERE

So am I an obsessed David Bowie fan, perhaps but I am a grateful David Jones graduate of his university of Oddity and Oddments.

RIP and thank you for more than the music.
