BOWIE BBC 1991.08.13-Mark Goodier's Evening Session
The Snake Goddess *click*
I have to admit that I don't care much for this one. He was playing under the banner of 'Tin Machine' at this point in his very changeable career and this is not what I'd call a highpoint. I actually find a lot of Bowies 80's and early 90's stuff to be bad. Some of it I cannot stand to listen to and I find it hard to believe it is the same guy that I usually love listening to so much!
In fact, in the interests of research I just listened to this one again and it's fucking bollocks to me. For the most part: pretty basic droning blues. A noise. Dire.
Don't let me put you off, have a listen.
Ok, ok there is some alright electric guitar on there but apart from that...crap.
Well...is crap too harsh? I think I just expect a lot more from Bowie and although this isn't exactly unpleasant, it isn't spectacular and it isn't Bowie so it doesn't really fit witrh the rest. I don't like it anyway.
