David Bowie


180 Gram Vinyl 'Pin Ups' served as a sort of 'how to' guide to David Bowie's career This allcovers album shed light on his ability to adopt personas and emulate musical genres with amazing speed and diversity It also showed that bowie was anticipating a different musical climate for the rest of the decade signifying a change from what was admired during the 1960s The psychedelic overtones of Pink Floyd's 'See Emily Play' and the garage rock cynicism of the Easybeats' 'Friday on my Mind' perfectly display Bowie's ear for melody and eye for popculture posturing He even tips a hat to his more established influences The Kinks' 'Where Have All the Good Times Gone' sparks his interest as a memorysoaked ballad a Ray Davies speciality and with the Who's 'Anyway Anyhow Anywhere' Bowie admits to not having invented the rock 'n' roll ego 'Pin Ups' served another suitable purpose for the chameleonic performer downplaying his otherworldly image by betraying his influences By presenting Bowie as an actual fan and not just an image style manipulator the album portrayed the singer in a different light allowing him to loosen up his approach to performing and to step outside the multiple characters he had created for himself
