The Joup Friday Album: David Bowie – Outside

OutsidebowieJoe:

If you do a search for David Bowie on Joup you will find a total of 20 articles of or relating to him. I wanted to begin this article with that little tidbit in order to illustrate a little of what the man means to us here at Joup. This is also the only thing nearing an explanation you will get for the fact that all or most of our regular contributors have spent the days and, well, will probably  spend the weeks after his death writing about him. Due to travel arrangements I missed my original turn for the Joup Friday Album last week but have come out in a better position to do what I had intended, as I spent the week visiting my co-publisher Shawn Baker in Los Angeles and had the rare opportunity to do this piece together, in person no less.

Endless Loop: When the Fool Becomes a King

polyphonicspreeHave you ever had one of those songs that gets stuck in your head for days…weeks…years? Sure you have. These are the songs that always make the cut. The songs on repeat. We all have them. I have a ton. Welcome back to Endless Loop.

Remember that time when…we were 7th row for David Bowie?

Simply, welcome to a new rotating author column entitled “Remember that time when…”.
How it works:

1. I’ll start with a story from my past which happens to be the one and only time I saw David Bowie in concert
2. I’ll leave it open to the next author (whomever would like to continue on) to recall “That time when…” Perhaps then we can nominate? I leave it to the authors and my co-publisher Shawn Baker to decide.
3. The only catch: it has to relate somehow to the previous story. It could in a number of ways. For instance the setting for this story takes place at The World Music Theater in Tinley Park, Illinois in October of 1995. So a number of thing could spin off…the location, the year, Trent Reznor whom shared the stage with Bowie, or even Bowie himself. But there should be no repeats in your relations from story- to-story.
4. Continue our stream of consciousness.

The Joup Friday Album: “Ace of Spades” — Motorhead

When Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister died on Dec. 28, the world lost one of its most unapologetic rock ‘n’ roll heroes. Lemmy wasn’t exactly a role model, but he was a constant, dependable presence in hard rock. The world might be going to hell in a handbasket, but at least Lemmy was always there to give it a good soundtrack.

“On the Horizon” by Locust (featuring Neil Halstead)

When perusing through my CD collection, one may notice several discs with radio station call letters on them…call letters from the station I deejayed for in college…promo discs distributed to the station…radio copies. So I stole some CD’s from the radio station I worked for. So what. I guess I’m a bad person, but I totally discovered some wonderful tunes whilst being said bad person. And one of those tunes is “On the Horizon,” the trippy, Neil Halstead-assisted album closer from Locust’s 1998 LP, Morning Light.
