Ed Harcourt Recovers Heroes On The Bbc

Bowie On Cover Of Soma

BowieNetter David Bowie very kindly tipped me off about this one. Out now, Vol. 17 Issue 5 of the American magazine SOMA features the rather tasty shot of David above, plus a six-page feature, entitled Post-Modern Love, which includes four new Frank Ockenfels shots.

You may recognise this faithful old leather jacket from the Glass Spider promotional campaign, and, indeed, from some of last year's New York shows. BowieNet members can view a larger version of the cover by clicking on it... Boy, is David Bowie gonna look the coolest man on Earth forever or what?!
