“I’m a Blackstar”

 

It gives us much pleasure to announce that David Bowie’s ★ album has made the shortlist of twelve 2016 Hyundai Mercury Prize ‘Albums of the Year’.

The shortlist has just been revealed at a live launch by 6 Music’s Shaun Keaveny and live on Lauren Laverne’s show on BBC Radio 6 Music. Shaun said:

 

"Each year the 'Albums of the Year' highlight some of the best in British and Irish talent – and 2016 is already shaping up to be a brilliant year for music. It’s going to be a tough decision for the judges, so I’m glad I'm not one of them!

Last chance to see David Jones’ Crucifixion in London

on August 02, 2016

 

“Hanging by the cross and nail...”

 

Hope the headline wasn’t too misleading, but if you haven’t yet attended Sotheby’s Bowie/Collector London highlights preview exhibition, you have until next Tuesday, August 9th, to get to it.

Of course, the David Jones Crucifixion we’re referencing isn't anything Bowie himself created, but rather just one of the pieces from his art collection going under the hammer at Sotheby's in November.

You can see the picture in the background behind Gavin Evans’ iconic shot of Bowie and here’s the accompanying caption...
