Bowie For Dummies

★  Bowie rarities: tributes, covers and unique recordings

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 was recorded, just rumour.

By now you are reading the third update, with active links and, once again, a lot of new discoveries. Enjoy this largest piece on the blog to date, mainly by trying things out, like we have over the past days.

Covers and tributes:

David Bowie had a habit of covering the songs of other artists, sometimes sublimely, sometimes woefully. In turn, covers of Bowie songs range from the “why?” (see Barbra Streisand’s “Life On Mars?”; well, don’t really) to the weird to the rare version that manages to surpass the Bowie original.
The earliest hail from a time when Bowie was as much a jobbing songwriter as he was a performer. Scraping together a living in part by doing lyrical translations for Israeli and Belgian composers, Bowie made demo after demo, which his manager sent to the likes of Peter, Paul & Mary, Jefferson Airplane, Chris Montez, and Tom Jones, with no success.
A few took chances with Bowie’s material in the Sixties. In 1965, Kenny Miller sang Bowie’s fledgling composition “Take My Tip”. There was Billy Fury’s go at “Silly Boy Blue”, with Fury gamely handling lines like “yak-butter statues/ that melt in the sun.” Better still is The Slender Plenty’s version of a song that Bowie never recorded (though a demo exists): “Silver Tree Top School For Boys,” in which masters and boys in a public school share joints on the cricket pitch.
Giving Bowie a push after a halt in momentum (he’d had a UK Top 10 hit with “Space Oddity” but his follow-up singles stiffed) was Peter Noone’s take on “Oh! You Pretty Things”, a UK #12 in 1971. Noone and his producer Mickie Most tweaked the lyric (the earth is a “beast” here, not a “bitch”) and smoothed the song’s rough edges. Bowie played what he called “composer’s piano” on the recording, needing multiple takes to get through it, as his hands would cramp up at the keyboard.
Bowie also offered one of his strongest compositions of the period, “All the Young Dudes,” to Mott the Hoople. It was a bequest to a band he liked, and it essentially marked the end of Bowie, Songwriter. Having become a cross-Atlantic rock star with Ziggy Stardust, he no longer had to market his compositions (with a few exceptions—he wrote for Ava Cherry, Mick Ronson and Tina Turner, among others).
There is an endless list of covers and tributes, like the following:

Adam Lambert, Bowie medley, 20-7-2009, American Idol live Glendale Arizona, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYX6d44Ar2k
Alejandro Escovedo - All The Young Dudes (LA 28-4-2016) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EG6L3iRKnHI

Ann Wilson – Let’s dance, Tribute 31-3-16 Carnegie Hall NY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrI52BCCtHE
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.
Ava Cherry – Moonage daydream https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJeRTu685p4

Bauhaus – Ziggy Stardust. Children fashion an idol out of scraps, pay homage. Rocks 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.
BBC Proms– Blackstar segment, 29/7/16  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x72dOxkfY4M
Beatstalkers – Silver tree top school for boys https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBLktpmOABw
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”).
Beck & Nirvana tribute – the man who sold the world at Cliver Davis’ pre-Grammy Award party http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmCjIB1p2Ok  
Behemoth – Hello Spaceboy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cv0AHNnw2es Bowie’s 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.

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.

Shaun Cassidy – Rebel rebel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mIfJt8QrrE For purist 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).

The bad plus – Life on Mars https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cz09i4EOjtE It’s surprising more jazz musicians haven’t feasted on Bowie’s songs, with their crafty progressions, modulations and deep veins of melodies. The trio The Bad Plus has fun rummaging through a Bowie standard; on 2007’s Prog.

Tina Turner – Cat People https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eET6bytbUUA No surprise, she sings the hell out of it. She makes “it’s been so long” carry the weight of every year that she’s endured, and right at the moment when Turner finally broke through. Recorded live in Chicago, August 1983.

Warpaint – Ashes to ashes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuspAu4FxuU Bowie’s 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 We Were So Turned On.
White Fence – She’s got medals https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBeo_hwkGTM As the chassis of Bowie’s gender-fluid “She’s Got Medals” is the garage band staple “Hey Joe,” it’s fitting that White Fence (Tim Presley and friends) showcased the song’s Nuggets qualities in a 2013 Aquarium Drunkard Lagniappe Session
