Adam Buxton & Chris O'Leary on Scary Monsters (Part 2)
Join me, Adam Buxton and author Chris O'Leary for a colourful and lively plunge into Bowie's 1980 watershed album Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)
We travel through the album’s tracklisting in this episode, from Ashes to Ashes to the closing Its No Game Part II and a bit beyond too. Chris and Adam swap nuggets of Bowie trivia and anecdotes and Adam blesses us with his incomparable tribute to Gary Numan. We talk about pirates, midwives of history, broken pizzas, bad theatrics and s-s-s-s-s-ociet-t-t-t-t-ty. Additionally, Chris shares a prized Tom Verlaine anecdote whilst I generally burble and chuckle along.
