“A New Career In A New Town”

 

The current issue of the superb Electronic Sound magazine @electronicmagazine  has 15 pages (including the front cover), devoted to David Bowie’s superhuman 1977 output.

 

If you purchase directly online you also get a free 7" vinyl single from that bloke off of Devo, Mark Mothersbaugh, who is also a part of Bowie’s 1977 story.

 

Here’s an edited version of the blurb:

ISSUE 36 MAG & VINYL BUNDLE

 

For one that started with him in a somewhat perilous state thanks to a rampant cocaine addiction, 1977 turned out to be quite the year for David Bowie. One that saw the release of two albums that would go on to influence an abundance of musicians and artists alike. To round off 2017, we turn the clock back 40 years in our cover feature and speak to some of the people that worked the ex-Thin White Duke over the course of 1977, and chronicle the encounters (both significant and trivial) that helped shaped Bowie and what would come next.

 

One of the people that Bowie crossed paths with that year is Mark Mothersbaugh, who incidentally features as this month’s seven-inch single. We were ecstatic when Mark agreed to Electronic Sound releasing a pair of his warped and mutated Christmas songs and here you can get them for the first time on limited edition vinyl. He also revealed to us what Devo’s first few days with Bowie were like back in 1977.
