In a feature entitled THE MOST ANTICIPATED RECORDS OF 2002, AP celebrates the new year a month early with words and pictures from Nine Inch Nails, AFI, Bouncing Souls, Disturbed, Filter, Chemical Brothers, Green Day, ICP, Marilyn Manson, Weezer and of course, David Bowie.
Mask was responsible for the shots of all three of the artists outlined above in bold, but DB is the trophy she has had her lens on for a long time now. When I asked David how he thought the session had gone, he replied:
"I was gobsmacked when I met Mask as she wasn't wearing one and there wasn't even a sniff of one in the studio. To hide my disappointment I just started posing and Lo and Behold she whipped out a camera and started clicking away, giving a very credible performance as a first class photographer. I told her to keep it up and then we both went home. Brilliant!"
And this is how Mask responded when I asked her the same thing:
"Why didn't anyone tell me Sailor was really David Bowie? I showed up with my throwaway instantmatic camera hoping to shoot Sailor and David Bowie walks into the studio. To hide my disappointment, I just started shooting and Lo and Behold, he started posing...Yeah right!"
In the feature itself David compares the follow-up to 'hours...' to such disparate albums as Diamond Dogs and Low, and he had this to say: ''Townsend said it was like Franz Kafka meets Ed Wood. And that's because he liked it. But I really got what he meant. There's a handmade quality to the album. But other than that, I couldn't compare it to any work that Tony and I have done before.''
Intrigued? I know I am...And I didn't once mention cows! Oooops...
