Seems you're trying not to lose...
Although at least twenty lucky BowieNet winners have already been enjoying it for the last week or more, 'All Saints' is now available to everybody else from today. Five even luckier people will be receiving a personally signed copy of the CD as a result of Friday's competition on Radio 1's Mark & Lard show. (07/20/01 NEWS: WIN A SIGNED ALL SAINTS CD ON RADIO 1 TODAY) The bizarre duo, who make DLT look merely zany, posed the following ludicrous question:
"Which all girl group does the new David Bowie album share its name with: Bewitched, All Saints, Cleopatra or The Beverly Sisters?"
The five people below (any of you lot BowieNetters?) managed to dial correctly and provide the winning answer, I apologise for any misspellings, but if there are any, it's definitely Lard's fault:
Andy Packman from High Wycombe
Gareth James from Chepstowe
Gary Jeans from Swindon
Sarah Pitt from Birmingham
David Allsopp from York
On a final note regarding this competition, I'm sure the whole of BowieNet will want to join me in offering my condolences to Aleczandah who, after managing to get through to the show, accidentally hung up! Now that isn't very funny...you must have been irritated Alecz. Look on the bright side though, what if you had successfully given your answer and it turned out to be wrong?
The press here in the UK continue to be enthusiastic about 'All Saints'. Here's a selection from some recent reviews:
"...a startling period...the songs (sic) are bleak and beautiful..." Daily Express
"...Saint David's Day...the hotly anticipated 'All Saints' is finally released." Daily Mirror
"...[Bowie] has never stopped being interesting...enthralling instrumentals..." The Guardian
