One of my fav DB albums is Black Tie White Noise but I can never pin point what genre it comes under. Obviously its Bowies own style but there must have been influences, I always think of it being more acid jazz and early Britpop i.e Happy Mondays?
What does everyone think, where are the influences?
Edit...... @ Olly. The term baggy was used to describe the music of the 90s produced by bands involved with the madchester music scene, bands like The Charlatans, Stone Roses, Inspiral Carpets, Happy Mondays etc.
Early Britpop too is not a great one, history show that would be NWONW bands like These Animal Men and SMASH. I was thinking about this - what would be Bowie's most 'British' album that could be bracketed into Britpop like those XTC and Kinks albums were? I'd say Scary Monsters.
I for years kidded myself I liked everything Bowie did ,but if I'm totally honest after Scary Monsters my only full album choices would be Never Let Me Down , 1. Outside ,and Heathen ! though my favorite single would be New Killer Star ? I feel Bowie has to be seen as trendy on some of his albums which I hate ? but this could be my age also he's old and that isn't good either because once they make it they tend to just go through the motions which invariably end up without Emotion ?Bowie knows this too ,proof= I Select !
BTWN an album with a couple of half decent tracks ?
I think for me after hearing Real Cool World I steered clear of new Bowie stuff. I liked the Jump They Say single very much and was glad it charted well, but didn't buy the album until the 3 disc reissue, purely because it was so exhaustive. Still trying to figure out why that album was chosen for that treatment. A quirk in the back catalogue I guess what with savage going bust.
