It *is* life (on Mars) at the top...

Back in December, Blammo brought us news of the Jasper Steverlinck cover of Life On Mars? (12/30/02 NEWS: JASPER STEVERLINCK'S 'LIFE ON MARS?' RUSH RELEASED). This week brought the great news that the song is now number one in the charts in his home country, Belgium. Congratulations to Jasper! The live version of the song is still available to listen online, here and the studio version to purchase, here.

(Thanks to BowieNetter Nessler who sent us the update)

Making up for this in some small measure, the magazine has conducted

Bowienetter Byron Has Exclusive Mark Plati Interview

on January 29, 2003

In which my thoughts would drown...

BowieNetter Byron, (TAFKA Vinyl) known to those that know him as William, has just launched his own website, primarily to promote his excellent band, The Drown, but also as a forum to present stuff that interests him.

Gail Ann by Helen2 from Friday night's show.

Friday on my mind...

BowieNetter Breaking Glass (AKA Helen2) has kindly sent in a brief review and some pictures from GAD's shows at the weekend... and so, here it is:

I have discovered a wonderful way of spending two very cold weekend nights in NYC, go see the Chanteuse Club perform! Three girls, Maggie Moore, Kate Pierson and Gail Ann Dorsey, with amazing but very different voices, singing classics and self-penned songs.
