Bowie event

join us in Second Life join our group

To mark what would have been David Bowie's 70th birthday Columbia Records released an EP containing four songs thought to be his final recordings. The tracks which form the EP, 'No Plan' (the title track), 'Killing a Little Time', 'When I Met You' and 'Lazarus' were written for Bowie's and Enda Walsh's stage musical 'Lazarus' which in turn is based on the book ' The Man Who fell To Earth' by Walter Tevis.

The video accompanying the song 'No Plan' shows a shop named Newton Electrical, a  reference to Thomas Newton, the main character played by Bowie in The Man Who Fell To Earth. The shop window, full of TV screens is another reference to the film, along with a glimpse on one the TVs of a rocket launch and finally a brief image of Bowie himself.

Take a look at the video below, which will hopefully prime you for the Bowie tribute we're planning on Tuesday 27th Febuary at The Pulse. All Bowie fans are welcome.
