A Space Poddity 16: Lodger

February 22, 2020

In this episode, the trio back their steamer trunks to explore the wonderous lands of David Bowie's 1979 album, Lodger. We discover the end of Bowie's Berlin era and can see a looming Scary Monster on the horizon. We discuss the experimental sound Bowie and his cohorts were devising up on this exotic journey. Does the Project get Cancelled due to running out of Red Money? Do the Boys Keep Swinging as the DJ spins his records with hopes we don't Look Back in Anger on this album?

A Space Poddity 15 : David Bowie (1967)

A Space Poddity 15 : David Bowie (1967)

February 14, 2020

In this episode, your three loveable lads of lively conversation take you inside the Deram world of David Bowie's first self titled album, David Bowie, released in 1967.  We take you lovely birds and cool cats into the swinging 60's where Bowie was finding his artistry by conversing with Laughing Gnomes, playing in Rubber Bands, begging to Gravediggers, borrowing comics from Uncle Arthur, and urging someone to buy his toys. Does Bowie ultimately succeed in becoming the next groovy sound from London or does he have to go back to the drawing board to figure this whole rock 'n roll thing out?

A Space Poddity 14.5 : Low (Side 2)

A Space Poddity 14.5 : Low (Side 2)

February 7, 2020

Last week, your Bowie Boys were joined by electronic music expert and Video Game Wizard Joe Vierra to discuss the seminal 1977 David Bowie masterpiece Low.  The conversation was so robust that we had to split it into 2 episodes.  So enjoy this, Low (Side 2) where we hear what Bowie, Eno and Tony Visconti were up to behind the scenes, Marc disappears on an underground mission, the team discusses the strange ambient side 2, the lasting impact of this album,  as well as outtakes and remixes from this era.  We hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

January 21, 2020

In their ongoing adventure to review all of David Bowie's discography, your Bowie Boys are dipping their toes in Bowie's Low era, but they can't go a step further without discussing Iggy Pop's first solo album, The Idiot.  Co-written and produced by Bowie, The Idiot is a ground breaking album and a helluva way to unofficially introduce the Berlin Trilogy.

A Space Poddity 13: Pinups

January 8, 2020

In this episode of our ongoing adventure in dissecting randomized Bowie albums, the Diamond Dice (TM) has chosen Pinups for us.  Your Bowie Boys, (Steve, Marc and Eric) are tasked with analyzing this strange, transitional album from 1973.  David Bowie wanted to pay tribute to the mod, British invasion bands of his early years (as well as wanting to satisfy his record contract), and we at Pod Like a Hole in turn pay tribute to that tribute.  

Enjoy.  Let us know your favorite tracks off this oft-forgotten album.
