on September 26, 2015


“5, 4, 3, 2, 1... Lift Off...”


In the very same week that David Bowie achieved his first ever #1 US single with Fame (September 20th, 1975), RCA issued the Space Oddity EP which would go on to be his first UK #1.

Outside released twenty years ago today

on September 25, 2015


“It’s happening Outside”


David Bowie’s 1. Outside album was released on this day in 1995 (26th in the US), the same week that the first single from the album, The Hearts Filthy Lesson, entered the UK Top 40.

The Bowie/Eno/Richards produced LP peaked at #8 on the UK album chart and narrowly missed the US Billboard Top 20 when it reached #21 there.

The release was supported by the remarkable 1995/1996 Outside World Tour (which kicked off on September 14th in Hartford in the US), and a couple of beautifully disturbing videos for The Hearts Filthy Lesson and Strangers When We Meet single
