Wowie Bowie! All the Young Dudes (and Dudettes) Pay Tribute to the Thin White Duke

Wowie Bowie! All the Young Dudes (and Dudettes) Pay Tribute to the Thin White Duke

Tired of worshipping David Bowie tribute bands like Diamond Dogs, Stardust, Space Oddity, Jean Genie, Tigers on Vaseline, and Scary Lodgers? Do you long for bands like Vivian Girls, MGMT, A Place to Bury Strangers, Duran Duran, and Devendra Banhart to take on Ziggy’s ouevre? Wait no more, because Manimal Vinyl will be putting out a 28-song tribute to the man sometime in May. The multiple-personality-clad Bowie, who turned 63 last Friday, is perfectly fit for tributes of all sounds and sizes, so it is not surprising that Manimal’s effort is a large, varied affair. It is surprising that no title has been created for the collection yet. It is not surprising that this tribute album be in benefit of a charitable organization, with the very deserving War Child International receiving all forthcoming proceeds.
