David Bowie, R.I.P.

Post by Jayway »

Sad loss of David Bowie, cancer. I will never forget his film Labyrinth, he was the Goblin King. And of course Major Tom.

He was a most popular when I was too young to appreciate him. Yet another sad loss of a music great. There must be one hell of a concert being planned in the next life :lol:

Quite a surprise upon hearing of his passing.
Saw him a couple of times in concert and met him once when he was trying out a new 'rave record when he toured east-end venues observing the audience's reactions. He was quite a complicated character.
Never the less he once gave me £6 grand for 6 months use of my art-window... :cool:
RIP David...

Bowieart.com and KCFA are pleased to introduce Michael Samuels, the first of six artists given the opportunity to transform the Tardis window set in Turnmill Street, EC1.
The window space on Turnmill Street gives the artists involved an opportunity to exhibit their work in an environment independent of a gallery setting, which will attract not only the attention of the art world but passers-by who may not normally go looking for art. Set within a brick facade alongside Farringdon Station, the window is on a street that sees a procession of commuters trek past by day and similar volumes of people with different intentions by night.


Ps: "Freaky my iTunes on automatic on the house system has played 3 Bowie songs so far, quite strange it's a fenomina!
in anyones books.. :cool:

My intentions were certainly different at night! Turnmills nightclub was my second home at weekends in the 90's. Memories. ...

He once purchased a top floor warehouse loft apartment opposite a council estate on Compton St for £500K and his son lived in it,
he the son, had continual party after party observed by some of my Bangladeshi work force and their Muslim Mum's watching from across the road.... :cool:

Ps: He certainly pushed up local house-prices..
and ignored my totally brilliant idea of him renting a building off me for BowieArt in Charterhouse St
even when I suggested 'a floating dirigible of his head, 5 floors above the open underground round Smithfield Mrk....'la whaala!
Pss: Just found this and hailing from Maidstone I sympathise with his thoughts. The Mannish Boy's I quite forgot.

Yep.

My intro to many things ;)

What was the name of the pub ...opposite, down the street? Used to continue there after they threw us out of Trade Sunday afternoon .

Haven't seen the aptly named Laurence Malice for ages.

I imagine different clques went in different directions. Don't recall the Garden Club.

Then again, I don't recall much at all of those years :lol:

I probably consumed more water in Trade than I've ever drunk in Egypt . Happy days.

Yeh! at £1pound a bottle...The owner Big Johnny Newman his son the DJ Tall Paul were really nice people.

Whilst trawling the web looking for my art window I found this.....
13854
I don't know who took this picture, but it's in my office with a BBC 1st edition Metal Mickey, it was radio controlled, had speakers in it and the arms and head articulated and his eyes flashed it, ran on a 12v Car Battery cost me £100 quid and could carry somebody hanging on to it up and down Turnmill St.
One day I replaced the head with one of 'Dodgy Dave Courtney's that Nick had cast,
Mickey decided to shoot off with the head descending in slow motion to break into a many pieces .
Nobody believed my innocence blaming metal mickey.... :cool:
