tuesday double bowie. (part one)

-from sleeveface.com

You know Bowie is from outer space.

He came to earth to mesmerise us all.

His look, his swagger. Absolutely inimitable.

but today we are not gonna go on and on about the man on the vinyl cover.

We are goin in depth into why there is a pale, fat, disgusting pair of legs sticking out like a sore flaccid ..muscle behind it.

There has been a rage goin on of late, and i am late on this train. no surprise there.

Some people like to sleeveface these days.

Its actually jargon. sleevefacing is jargon. dont believe me you punk?? click here.

what in the world is sleevefacing???

SLEEVEFACE – One or more persons obscuring or augmenting any part of their body or bodies with record sleeve(s) causing an illusion.

SLEEVEFACING – Posing for a photo with your head or other body part hidden behind an LP jacket to impersonate a rock star. Masters of the form orchestrate elaborate tableaus.

kudos to them for coming up with such a briliiant idea.

C’mon dont get all emo.

If you are I would think you need to sleeveface anyway.

I’ll give you a treat. The first part of a 2 part series of Bowie covers!!!

mp3 | Beck – Diamond Dogs (David Bowie Cover) / (Mediafire)

mp3 | Emilie Simon – Space Oddity (David Bowie Cover) / (Mediafire)

Beck‘s cover of diamond dogs is nothing short of stellar.

BUT Emilie Simon‘s cover. The cover she did… its MAGIC. 5 outta 5 by a mile.

    I found your site through hypemachine, and I’m ever so glad. Because, HOLY CRAP, Emilie Simon’s cover of “Space Oddity” is GORGEOUS!

    Thanks for the track πŸ™‚

    Aw. I wish I had invented sleevefacing.

    More importantly, nice tracks you’ve got there. I’m not much into Beck; does he usually sound so reminiscent of the Scissor Sisters? It’s more glammy than I remember.
