2011

Back in 2011 I organised a night called 'Where's Bowie?'. It had two aims: first, to make a noise so loud and glamorous it dragged the much-missed Duke out of retirement, and second to raise money for MIND - a charity that raises awareness about mental health issues.

We held the event at Night & Day Café, Manchester, on 29th November. We showed a great film - Fritz Von Runte's 'Bowie 2001' - a piece that splices Bowie's remixed back catalogue into the original Kubrick movie. Three bands played: Hooker (now LIINES), Black Antlers and Monte Carlo.

I DJed along with Clair & Rebecca (Bad Timing) and Jane Hector-Jones.

I put together these 'Bowie-esque' mixes shortly afterwards as a souvenir for all the pink monkey birds that strutted their stuff on that special night.

The lovely artwork was by Randall Marsh.
