Yes!! David Bowie has released a new song, the first of the fucken decade I hear! Hooray!!
The thin White Duke has always been a smart and cunning artiste of incredible talents, yet his greatest talent remains his ability to exploit whatever the fuck’s happening at the moment and jump on the band wagon and cash like a mother bitch. I think even Herman Hesse knows by now that Bowie lived in Berlin, and if you ever come to visit the great German capital you will find Bowie’s West Berlin flat that he shared with Brian Eno amongst other during the 70’s marked as a historical landmark. Thing is, when you get there it’s just a normal building but with a Rainbow Flagged bar next to it where one can’t help thinking “Is this where he had his Shandy’s??”.
Of course nowadays Berlin has become fashionable and it shall continue to be so for the next year or two until the hordes of mediocre artists, Spanish students and American girls in search for vintage cameras finally cluster the place to the point of impossible rents. But for now, Berlin is “aweeeesssome” and David just made a lovely tune name-dropping all these West Berlin references and everyone is jizzing or squirting their undergarments!! Yay!! (Btw KaDeWe should have been left out man, like seriously they sell 80 quid turkeys there).
Now don’t get me wrong. I fuckin luv Bowie boy but it needs to be said, he sure know how to vampirize the shit out of the present. Good lad.
