Rjyan Kidwell Pays Tribute To Db

on May 09, 2003

Think about the Cex thing...

I was prompted to contact the man behind Cex, Rjyan Kidwell, after a small ad for his album, Being Ridden, in the current NME. The blurb for the ad made the recording sound interesting enough: Cex is just about the freshest mashing of genres ever unleashed. They mix hip-hop party jams, warm IDM glitch and shades of emo and folk. ...but it was the album sleeve which initially caught my eye.

Two versions of Being Ridden are released this coming Monday, (vocal and instrumental) I think you can work out which is which in the above pic.

Unfortunately, due to the SARS outbreak, Alboreto's Great Wall Of China walk has been cancelled, but instead he will be off in a couple of days to walk in Cuba.

Bowienetters Are A Good Bunch!

on May 06, 2003

Helping one another...

It seems the generosity of BowieNetters knows no bounds. Within two days of posting our piece (05/05/03 NEWS: SPONSOR BOWIENETTERS IN AIDS WALK NEW YORK) about BowieNetters Jim Hyde (aka Floidoip) and Kimberly Smith (aka Chamomile) entering for the Aids Walk New York on May 18th, you had boosted Jim's funds past his $1,000 target to $1,110 and helped Kimberly reach 70 per cent of her $500 target!

With eleven days to go, there's still plenty of time to donate if you want to.

"Great tribute to Susan last night. We popped in only for a short while, I took a break from recording and then I went back to finish off a lyric.
