Tape Archive: Bowie Interview Feb 1979 Part 2


Bowie79radioThis is the 2nd Part of an interview between Nicky Horne and David Bowie from February 13th 1979. This section begins by referring to Bowie’s then very recent acting in the film Just a Gigolo as potentially ‘wooden’ (you’ve got to admire Nicky Horne’s ability to not overly ingratiate himself with the guest).

I’ve left one of Bowie’s personal music choices in, namely La Düsseldorf by the band of the same name which then consisted of original Kraftwerk drummer Klaus Dinger along with Thomas Dinger and Hans Lampe who were sometime collaborators with Neu!

Questions include Bowie’s thoughts on Disco and disposable music and a pertinent question concerning Bowie’s comments he made a a year or so earlier that seemed to align him with fascism and which Bowie attempts to put into context and clarify.
