    Default David Bowie

    In the seventies there used to be Roxy/Bowie nights at various clubs and venues, such was their popularity. We've had a lot of views on Roxy Music, but what about Bowie? I reckon Hunky Dory was the biggest steaming pile ever to be committed to vinyl. What do you think?
    Pining for the fjords? What kind of talk is that? And why did he fall flat on his back the minute I got him home?

    Now you really are talking rubbish, Hunky Dory is a classic, the beginning of Bowie creating characterisations which lead to Ziggy, Aladdin Sane etc.

    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes

    I think you've been smoking too much cheap crack.

    Sorry you feel that way... Why do you feel that way? It's a great little album.

    Got you going there! Hunky Dory is my all time favourite of any album, more so than my other favourites (Electric Ladyland, Wish You Were Here and even Ziggy Stardust). Nice to see Mr. Bowie has such a loyal following

    What's your favourite DB album?

    You're right Adam, it is. But in my defence I was bored with the Brexit thread bunfight and there wasn't much else happening. A better thread might have been "Would Bowie have voted to leave?"

    Feel free to post something more interesting, I haven't set the bar very high.
