My top ten favourite songs from David Bowie’s short-lived TIn Machine project.
“Tin Machine were an English-American hard rock band formed in 1988, famous for being fronted by English singer-songwriter David Bowie. The band consisted of Bowie on lead vocals and guitar, Reeves Gabrels on guitar, Tony Sales on bass, and Hunt Sales on drums. Guitarist Kevin Armstrong was an unofficial fifth member of the band, playing on both the first studio album and first tour.” – Wikipedia
Disclaimer: I have decided to limit myself to only ten tunes, so of course some of my other favourites have been omitted.
Inspired by the Deep Purple series of EPs and CDs titled “New, Live & Rare”, I made a mix of David Bowie songs in 2002 and then a Vol 2 in 2016.
And here is a mix of songs by the artists that Bowie listed on the back cover of his Pin Ups album, released in 1973.
Music itself is going to become like running water or electricity. So it’s like, just take advantage of these last few years because none of this is ever going to happen again. You’d better be prepared for doing a lot of touring because that’s really the only unique situation that’s going to be left. It’s terribly exciting. But on the other hand it doesn’t matter if you think it’s exciting or not; it’s what’s going to happen. – David Bowie
