BarneyRubble's current selection is:
Young Americans (David Bowie)
by The Jellyman's Daughter & Friends
From a spur of the moment decision on hearing of the death of David Bowie...

Emily (of The Jellyman's Daughter) says:

I didn't post anything when David Bowie died, but I'm going to post something now. I heard it on the news that day (oh boy) and it completely floored me. That afternoon I spent going about my day with Bowie as the soundtrack and the songs hit me harder than usual. What a sound he captured, what creative genius.

My heart was full of musical desire and I originally thought, we should do a Jellyman's Daughter cover in remembrance. But that wouldn't really fill the hole, I then called a bunch of super talented Edinburgh musicians to share my idea and amazingly on one nights notice (two hours for the rhythm section) everyone was on board.

For free and out of passion. We literally recorded everything in 24 hours of madness, laughs and spectacular takes.

Massive thanks to all the musicians, David O'Leary who did the longest engineering stint he's ever done, camera crew Camille Murray and Andrew Perry, and Graham for discovering he can edit videos.

With everything in perspective , I feel very lucky to be alive here and now, making music with the most talented bunch of friends! Turn your speakers to 11. Here's to you, Bowie.

I'm not a saint, but I'm not the worst. Yes, I'm a sinner but I'm not the last or the first. Deep down inside, oh you know that I'm good, and I just done the best Lord, done the best that I could
