Not quite sure what these are, some more of Bowie’s artwork, perhaps? Or someone else’s work? They’re featured at the V&A’s anyway. The pun on the first picture is cute “The Bowmen” hehe.

MTV VJs’ book dishes on a battle with David Bowie…:

Before “Let’s Dance” came out, David Bowie did a press junket in a hotel room. It was one of those deals where interviewers file in one at a time. I had interviewed him before, on the radio, but I’m sure he didn’t remember me.
I said, “I have some tough questions for you, David — I hope you’re ready.”
And he said, “Ha, great, because at the end I’d like to ask you some punishing questions as well.”
That comment just blew by me.
At the end of the interview, he started asking me why there was such a dearth of black music on MTV.
I said, not trying to toe the corporate line but honestly, “Listen, if this was a radio station, we’d be a rock station. It wouldn’t make sense for us to play stuff that isn’t in our format.”
The conversation got around to Bowie saying, “Don’t you think there are black kids in the audience who would like to see some of these videos?”
I said, “Well, I guess so, but this is what we do, and we have to think about the audience that has cable.” A lot of times we were finding that cable’s heaviest subscribers were in rural areas where they couldn’t get any television reception at all, out in Oklahoma or whatever — not usually your biggest fans of urban music.
Bowie was hammering me, and I was trying to defend the network — but it was an awkward position.
What irritated me was that I felt like a pawn. I had no say over what MTV played — I wasn’t an executive. And Bowie knew what the situation was. He knew (MTV executive) John Sykes, and he knew a lot of the other principals. He was just using me to bring this issue into the forefront. I felt like an idiot, and I felt used, and I felt insignificant to David Bowie — which I probably was, anyway.

This is an article by Rick Moody and, apparently, he managed to get Bowie to send him a flow diagram of the themes in The Next Day. I’ve read only a part of the article, so I’m basing my judgement on the bits I’ve read, but the writer comes across as a bit douchey. He’s a double edged blade; trying to sound objective by underhandedly insulting Bowie as he kisses Bowie’s ass.
While I may not see this author in a very nice light from the bits that I’ve read, it’s still very interesting to see Bowie’s themes from Bowie himself.

Some concept art for Diamond Dogs at the David Bowie Is exhibit at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Transcript of the first picture:

“One such tribe enters one such building.

The Diamond Dogs enter the ‘World Assembly Building.’

The street level floors of this building are open to the public as gambling rooms (Victim lights/fights(?) explained later) ration collection, (mealcaine) porn peep shops, etc.

Here we find Halloween Jack, Magge the Lion, their son and 12 close building embarking on a riot (well…!)”
