Well I wouldn't buy no merchandise...
As promised a couple of days back, ( 03/28/01 NEWS: MICK ROCK ON TV THIS MORNING ) here are the details of how to order Mick Rock's 'Blood and Glitter' online. As if the cover price of Ã‚Â£14.99 wasn't already an incredibly under-priced bargain, you can buy this beauty directly from the publishers, Vision On, with a 25% discount, for the absurd price of Ã‚Â£11.25. 'Blood and Glitter' is a huge 250mm x 320mm and contains an impressive 208 colour and black 'n' white pages...that's less than 6p per page!
Mick will be signing copies of the book on Thursday April 5th at 6:00pm, in the Basement of the Piccadilly branch of Tower Records in London. If you are in the area you can also pop along to the first day of the 'Blood and Glitter' exhibition at the Proud Galleries, which are situated at 5 Buckingham Street, London WC2N 6BP, nearest tubes being Charing Cross or Embankment. The exhibition runs daily between 10:00am and 7:00pm from 5th April to 6th May 2001, with a small entrance fee of Ã‚Â£2 (Ã‚Â£1 concessions).
Even if you do buy 'Blood and Glitter', the exhibition is still worth a visit as there are some stunning Bowie pictures on display that aren't in the book, but please remember photography inside the exhibition is strictly prohibited. On Monday we will be skipping the usual First Monday Lyric competition for a contest to win copies of this magnificent book.
The Simply Vinyl website is now updated with a David Bowie Page where you can purchase the first three releases in their Bowie re-issue campaign at a most reasonable Ã‚Â£16.99 each. I have seen these very same LPs advertised elsewhere on the net for up to Ã‚Â£22.99!! So go to Simply Vinyl and save yourself Ã‚Â£6 on each album. We will also be running a competition to win these albums next week, so if you aren't keen on winning Bowie stuff perhaps it would be advisable to avoid BowieNet News for a few days. };-)
