The Goon Squad finally comes to town!

Five years (get it?) later I finally deliver the Bowie covers. I'll spare you the tedious details of my life that led to the gap in posts, but know I've been thinking of you. The following tracks span many genres, hopefully you'll enjoy (or be otherwise amused by) at least a few.

  • Ozzy Osbourne "All the Young Dudes" (Mott the Hoople cover, comp. David Bowie)

  • Lady Besery's Garden "Andy Warhol" (David Bowie cover)

  • Lassigue Bendthaus "Ashes to Ashes (Digital Spacepop Replicant)" (David Bowie cover)

  • Des de Moor and Russell Churney "Boys Keep Swinging" (David Bowie cover)

  • Claudia Brucken and Andrew Poppy "Drive-In Saturday" (David Bowie cover)

  • Die Lady Di "Fashion" (David Bowie cover)

  • Galactic Achievement Society "Jean Genie" (David Bowie cover)

  • Pauline Easy "Life on Mars" (David Bowie cover)

  • Swans of Avon "Look Back in Anger" (David Bowie cover)

  • Black Box Recorder "Rock 'n' Roll Suicide" (David Bowie cover)

  • Mates of State "Starman" (David Bowie cover)

    Ooooh! I used to know Des de Moor - he does a fantastic "chanson revival" club. Very sad to find out that Russel Churney passed away in February this year, I've seen him live a couple of times and frequently on television in the 80s and 90s; a very talented man.

    On their recent tour, Of Montreal has been covering "Moonage Daydream". There's a recording here:

    Woa!!!... absolutely awesome, I love your blog.

    Hey, by any chance, do you have some covers of Roxy Music in your collection?.

    Greg said...

    No need to explain; it's just great to have you back and posting (with a vengeance!) again. Thanks!

    Susanna Hoffs does a wicked great version of "Boys Keep Swinging" that I was JUST looking for today (an ex had it -- on David Bowie's Songbook -- but I never ripped it. More's the pity!). See also: The Polecats doing "John I'm Only Dancing."

    Thanks for posting these! I was in a Bowie kind of mood today.

    Lobstar said...

    Heather, No problem. And I believe I posted the Polecats cover a few years ago.

    There's something just slightly wrong about that Ozzy cover of "All The Young Dudes". Maybe it's the fact that it almost sounds like he's being backed up by the Kidz Bop kids in the chorus.
