DAVID BOWIE 1983-1987 Interviews

During the Serious Moonlight Tour in 1983

Recorded in 1987 for the King Biscuit broadcast from David Bowie's Glass Spider Tour, this interview contains two different recordings. The first part is a formal sit-down with Bowie aimed at promoting the tour. He talks in depth about the tour's production, as well as the meanings behind the theatrics. It is not only a testament to Bowie's hard work and dedication to putting on a great show, but also to his artistic merit, as his explanations regarding the meanings behind different aspects of the show prove that every detail was the result of a greater vision.
The second part of the interview seems to be from a chance encounter, where David was caught at a bar after a show. It is a more relaxed chat, with highlights including talk about his work on a Monty Python movie and joking about driving his glass spider.

John Illsley is the bass player of Dire Straits .He has published in 1988 a solo album named "Glass".
I used to love the song called "Red turns to blue" but I have been disappointed by the album . The songs are quite boring and John Illsley is not a great singer unfortunately .........Excepted "Red turns to blue"

LLOYD COLE Live 1999

Those live recordings are coming from the box named "2001 / Collected recordings by Lloyd Cole" .From spring 1998 until summer 1999 , Lloyd Cole had decided to play at the same place and not touring at all . It was The Mercury Lounge , on Houston Street , NYC.It's a kind of cheap recording on a MD I think with only a stereo microphone putted at the bar to catch the atmospher of the place .So you can hear conversations between 2 songs .Funny .
