Post subject:  David Bowie has died

Of course the radio is playing lots of Bowie songs and it's all rather sad. On the other hand they've just put on his song The Laughing Gnome which I've never heard before as everyone has always taken the P**s out of it without actually playing it!

I will always remember him in Labyrinth as well as for his music - and I always link Labyrinth in my mind with a Jinty story, "Alice in a Strange Land", which has a bit where the protagonist needs to wend her way through a huge and fearsome maze. She does it by climbing the wall so that she walks above the maze - which of course also happens in the film. Tenuous connection I know but minds are a strange thing.

RIP Bowie.

A hero indeed - for far more than just one day! :(

(Incidentally Bowie once listed the Beano as one of his hundred favourite books - between the Day of the Locust and the Road to Wigan Pier!).

Coincidentally, Bowie was the subject of a mock interview in Stephen Collins's cartoon in The Guardian Weekend on the Saturday just gone. See below.

The laughing gnome was part of a double album that was released in the late sixties, and I dearly loved it. Nothing like late Bowie, but it delivered so many great songs for me. It was so eclectic and enjoyable - Silly Boy Blue, Love you till Tuesday, Little Bombadier... and so many more. Then, afterwards, he did Space Oddity. What can you say?

I think you're thinking of 'Images', which came out in the UK in 1975, during the Young Americans era (which you can tell from the cover photo) - this one:

compiling his Deram LP and singles from circa 1966-67.

Almost a week since the news broke.

Theres' not many pop-stars that would've made a great comic-strip, but he certainly would.
