Artefact

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. Most of the stuff we played was by the man himself, but we stuck in a few other tracks that just felt right.

I've just noticed that on this photo you can see my spray can of Isopropanol for cleaning records. Anal to the last. Person to my left is my sister.

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