BOMBERS

i choked on my pint when i heard this playing in the pub last night.
couldnt believe it.
from bowie at the bbc sessions.
the odd thing is it was the only bowie selection available.

i'm surprised anyone in there knew it there must have been a loyal bowie fan in there somewhere apart from me, unless it was a mistake.

i don't know if it was my imagination but the pub seemed to empty out a little when it came on.

The live Bombers is an odd one. Must be a fan. I would have asked behind the bar?

THe only time I ever hear Bowie now ( apart from my home and the occasional radio track ) is in Morrisons

Haven't been in a pub for years.

But I can remember back and always selecting the more obscure B-side to Bowie's singles just to see others reactions lol

I remember putting Amsterdam (b-side to Sorrow) on in a pub and all I could hear was "who put this shit on?"
