David Bowie – It’s No Game (Part 1) (1980)

David Bowie Pierrot

Disconcerting vocals will be a short-lived theme, certainly now that I pull out my ace – David Bowie’s 1980 songbook Scary Monsters (Super Creeps). If you think Billy Corgan and Tom Verlaine can be discordant, check out ‘It’s No Game’ and ‘Kingdom Come’. I discard the latter because it’s actually painful. Whereas ‘It’s No Game’ opens the album, features Robert Fripp on lead guitar and is a damn good song despite Bowie sounding like he is having his intestines pulled out. That last bit came from an NME review. Have a great weekend.

‘Marquee Moon’ – the title track off Television’s 1977 long player. I cannot believe I’ve waited this long. Have a great week.

Ought – Habit (2014)

Ought

Good morning. Ought’s Tim Beeler evidently channels Television’s Tom Verlaine for his vocal performance on ‘Habit’. However, the result remains contemporary. The song featured on the Montreal-based band’s 2014 album More Than Any Other Day. Have a great week.
