TSOM20: That David Bowie Show


Better late than never. The unparalleled career of David Bowie has inspired countless artists and has led to hundreds of covers…many quite tasty. But tonight, we’re not at all interested in the good or the bad…but, instead, the truly ugly. Join us in our intergalactic exploration as we search for the worst David Bowie cover ever recorded. Rest in peace, Starman, knowing that you’ll never have to hear this crap ever again.



Show notes:

Voices: J. Wyrick, S. Bennett, C. Allred, and the Dirty Deacon.

Intro music contains elements of M.Barnacle’s “Erase That” (used with permission), contains elements from two amateurish covers of “Ziggy Stardust,” the Fat Boys, Kid Koala, Johnny Adams, Biggie Smalls coughing up something nasty, Larry and Tommy. Arranged by TSOM’s Jeff.
