Goodbye David


1974. My earliest memory of any culture. Our hair dried with a towel would be fluffed it up till we resembled a poster of David Bowie.

1983. Watching Top of the Pops at school. Amid the Culture Club, Smiths, Madness. “Let’s Dance”. His last great record before this year's “Blackstar”.

1986. Transformer. The Idiot. Raw Power. The Velvet Underground and Nico.

1987. Heroes and Low. Kraftwerk.
