"Heroes" 40th anniversary picture disc in at #1

on September 29, 2017

 

“We can beat them”

 

The "Heroes" limited edition 40th-anniversary 7" picture disc issued via Parlophone last Friday (22nd) has entered today’s chart at #1. (29 September 2017 - 05 October 2017)

 

It joins three other Bowie releases in the Official Physical Singles Chart Top 20 right now.

 

#01 - "Heroes"

#11 - No Plan EP

#12 - Be My Wife

#17 - Sound And Vision

 

"Heroes" is also at #25 in the overall singles sales chart. Pretty good considering it was only released on vinyl and it's up against all those downloads, CDs, vinyl and the like by popular kids of today.

 

Much gratitude to all

ANCIANT Video Focus: Fashion

on September 28, 2017

 

“Beep Beep”

 

(ANCIANT = A New Career In A New Town)

 

In October 1980, Fashion was released as the second of four singles from Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps).

 

David Mallet directed again, this time inside New York’s HURRAH nightclub. The opening shot of the clip features Bowie and band on the HURRAH stage which was draped in khaki canvas for this shoot.

 

The faceted mirror walls surrounding the dance floor can be seen in the background of various shots, and all the band scenes are shot in this club setting.

ANCIANT Video Focus: Ashes To Ashes

on September 27, 2017

 

“Oh no, don’t say it’s true”

 

(ANCIANT = A New Career In A New Town)

 

Released in August 1980, the Ashes to Ashes single was accompanied by one of the better known Bowie promo videos, not to mention one of the most truly ground-breaking and hugely influential videos to boot.

 

Bowie retained the services of David Mallet for this Bowie/Mallet-directed short (Bowie’s first credited direction), to promote the lead single from the forthcoming 1980 album, Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps).

 

Ashes to Ashes was at the time the most expensive music video ever made and remains one of the most
