I first got a sniff of this one over a year ago when I came into possession of a promo CD of some of David's Deram era recordings. Two and a half years in the making, Jamilla Naji's Musical Storyland presents David Bowie?s music in a sing-a-long children?s book and CD that aims to entertain and educates young readers.
I asked Jamilla about the project and why this particular area of David's career inspired her to release this book of charming illustrations accompanied by a ten-track CD of some of the earliest Bowie work:
Here's the last instalment of this fascinating little three-parter from Anthony. You know how it works by now, and this is another one that I can't really talk about without giving too much away... so I'll shut up now.
Thanx again Anthony... Boy, I'm looking forward to seeing what he manages to get from the Japanese leg of the tour.
David's show in Perth at the Supreme Court Gardens was the final concert on the Australian leg of the A Reality Tour. BowieNetter Simone has kindly taken over the reigns from Charly, and though I've not had a report from her, she did send in the set list.
The pictures here were kindly supplied by BowieNetter Carbo and the impossibly handsome Nick B has also officially confirmed the 27-song set list:

I don't see The Point at all... (Well, I guess you wouldn't from Perth)
We first alerted you to this one back in January, (01.15.2004 NEWS: DB GETS TWO NOMINATIONS IN METEOR AWARDS ) when voting opened for The 2004 METEOR Ireland Music Awards. As we said at the time, David is nominated in two categories, Best International Male and Best Live Performance.
Voting is now over, and the award ceremony takes place at The Point Theatre in Dublin tonight, when the winners will be announced.
