Diamond Dogs, and I don’t think he ever completely abandoned it.

He did take it digital in the 90s, however, with a program called Liptikl. Paste in some text and it cuts it up for you.

thank you for Liptikl info'. I didn't know the actual programme he used - I thought he had a text machine/programme made/designed for him. I want to get Liptikl but it appears difficult to find an actual download :((

Try this address:

It looks like they’re making a phone version, so you can cut up your text messages.

Was Bewlay Brothers cut up? I think the Diamond Dogs album was the first record and that ties in with his photo shoot with William Burroughs in late 1973.

In the Cracked Actor doc he shows it being done with Moonage Daydream but I think that was a bit of reordering the past to suit the future.

Anyone got any further info?

Wasn't there a scene in Cracked Actor before Candidate where the lyrics are cut up and thrown in the air then shown on the screen as the song is played?

He shows it with Candidate and then also with Moonage Daydream which I don't think was written using that technique.

I also dispute that Bowie was already using the cut-up method prior to the Diamond Dogs album. The original lyrics to Moonage Daydream would have been written no later than 1971 and probably just used in Cracked Actor as being from the Ziggy album was more familiar than the more recent material and is weird enough to make it believable. You have to remember that at the time of Cracked Actor, you could hardly believe anything Bowie said.
