Anyone got any information regarding this Bowie track?? Just come across it on YT and love it but can't place it? It's not in Pegg's "Complete Bowie". Is it from the Tao Jones years?

Fun (Bowie): this drum 'n' bass track evolved from 'Is It Any Wonder', itself based on a line from 'Fame'. To most fans, it will remain a bit of a mystery, as the three officially released versions were offered only to BowieNet members. A 3'31" mix featured on the BowieNet CD-ROM, distributed in 1998 to new subscribers only. The second is a 7'42" "live" version (supposedly recorded in Amsterdam, Paradiso, 10-06-97), which appeared on liveandwell.com, a section of BowieNet featuring live performances of the Earthling tour. This studio version, with a live audience mixed in, also featured on a promo cassette for liveandwell.com, but was omitted from the released 2CD. Instead, the liveandwell.com 2CD featured the Dillinja Mix. Promo-only is Fun Fade 2 (w/o crowd @ top & shorter fade), a variation of the "live version", which appared on an in-house promo CDR also containing 'Tryin' To Get To Heaven'. The mixes on the in-house Danny Saber Mixes promo CDR are four shorter variations (3'13") of the BowieNet CD-ROM mix, here labelled Clownboy Mix (#2 Clownboy Mix, #3 Clownboy Mutant Mix, #5 Clownboy Mix Voc. Up, #7 Clownboy Instr). These four variations have appeared on Glastonbury Messiah (BOW 2000).
