Rebel Rebel : Mojo : Feb 2002 This month's 'Gimme Ten : A packed handbag of transgender pop classics', includes Rebel Rebel at number five. They say :- "Two years after producing Reed's Transformer, David Bowie's relentless riffage touts an epicene tacky thing. Wanna piss off mum and pop? Mess with your gender.
The Langley Schools Music Project*, featuring Space Oddity, with an arrangement described by David as "astounding", also has a double page spread this month. *(11/09/01 SNIPPET: BOWIEPHILES)
Various : Sunday Times : 1/20/02 In the first of several mentions for David in this week's issue, he is chosen to represent those who know how to keep their appearance fresh and young-looking. They say, "....they (David Bowie, Raquel Welch and Madonna) have mastered the art of image reinvention, which means that new generations still perceive them as looking fresh, even after they have spent several decades in the public eye." The story was accompanied by five images of David from his youth to the present day.
Elsewhere in the paper, David's part in 1998's great Nat Tate hoax reached number five in a list of "Six of the Best Hoaxes", described thus :- "The glitterati flocked to Jeff Koon?s Manhattan loft in 1998 to hear William Boyd introduce his monograph of the American abstract expressionist Nat Tate. The book boasted a blurb from David Bowie. Tate, of course, never existed." For more about Nat Tate, see Bowienet News : 07/18/01 NEWS: NAT TATE EXPOSED TONIGHT.
Also, in a review of Black Rebel Motor Cycle Club's debut album which made Record Of The Week :- "Right now, nobody else is doing this better. Certainly, nobody else could smash together Bowie's Jean Genie and Norman Greenbaum's Spirit In The Sky and end up with a song as addictive as Spread Your Love."
