...to re-post my anti-David Bowie's Pin Ups rant from way back in 2009?
Well, actually, I think it is. So I'll just link to it instead. Gutless weasel that I am.
I should add that, upon re-reading the thing, although I still detest the Pin Ups album simply as music, I have moderated my view of Bowie's conceptual reason for making it, and of Bowie's stature as an artist generally.
That said, I stand by every nasty word I said about Bryan Ferry in the post, and not just because he doesn't get any sympathy from me for not being dead.
Incidentally, if you go to the link above, you'll find a) another link to a ZIP file of the original versions of all the songs Bowie covered on Pin Ups. Plus an audio clip of The Mersey's wonderful hit version of "Sorrow."
