If it wasn’t for the great man existing in the first place, I wouldn’t be sat here typing this now. I really don’t want to be sitting here typing this now because the very act of doing it makes it more real. The saddest of sad days.
Thoughts with Duncan, Lexi, Iman and all who’s lives have been touched in some way by David Bowie x
David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.
And finally, from Duncan.

Anyone near Shipley, West Yorkshire has a unique opportunity to attend a great evening of film and music.
The Record Club along with Shipley Film Society are holding an evening of film & music on Sunday, January 22nd. A screening of Duncan Jones award winning 2009 debut MOON starring Sam Rockwell, will be followed by a full play through of David Bowie’s 1971 classic album Hunky Dory (celebrating it’s 40th Birthday!) on vinyl 🙂
The Record Club were inspired by reading an article on the BBC News site on record clubs and the idea of returning to listening to vinyl LPs all the way through, as originally intended by the recording artiste. Shipley Film Society’s aim is to bring together like minded people for film viewing and discussion over a few drinks afterwards. Combine the two and you have what promises to be a wonderful evening of film & music with a bunch of great people to boot!
As well as MOON & Hunky Dory, the evening will also be mixing in associated music including records from MOON score composer Clint Mansell’s former band Pop Will Eat Itself. Shipley Film Society have also requested that anyone that owns 7″ vinyl copies of Chesney Hawkes ‘The One and Only’ and Katrina & The Waves ‘Walking On Sunshine’ bring them along too. If you’ve seen MOON you’ll know why, if not…
When: Sunday, January 22nd 2012 @ 19:00
Where: The Kirkgate Centre, Shipley, BD18 3RR
