Duncan Jones tweets MUTE trailer


“The darkest hour and your voice is new, Love is lost, lost is love”


As we recently told you, MUTE premieres worldwide on NETFLIX on Friday 23rd February 2018, more than fourteen years since Duncan’s first draft.


Now young Jones has posted the trailer on Twitter (@manmademovies ) and from the flavour of it, it looks like MUTE has been well worth the wait.


Unsure whether he wants you to watch the trailer or not, Duncan also had this to say about this seemingly necessary evil:  


“I have a love hate relationship with trailers. I would rather people go in to a movie knowing nothing about it, but that’s a bit old fashioned… for all you youngsters & hipsters, here’s the trailer for MUTE.”


And here it is.

Janelle Monáe talks inspirational Bowie


“We can beat them, for ever and ever”


Back in 2014 we told you about Janelle Monáe’s cover of “Heroes”, which she covered for an anti-bullying campaign and released on the Pepsi Beats of the Beautiful Game LP.


At the time she told Rolling Stone magazine: “Bowie knows what’s up. He’s a fan and I’m a fan of him. The respect is mutual. I hear from his wife Iman that he’s a huge supporter of me, the way I dress and my music. I just hope that we made him proud.”


Janelle promoted “Heroes” with an appearance on Late Show with David Letterman at the time.


Now Iman has reposted a moving Instagram tribute by Janelle, originally posted on January 10th, 2018:

Janelle Monáe: 


Thinking of you my ziggy Star dust moonage day dream .

Even in your ascension to another frequency you still manage to guide me , and all of us who you inspire .

You continue to teach me what freedom looks like through the gifts you left behind .

You continue to help me and so many feel comfortable during some of our most vulnerable and fearful moments . I often find myself asking , “What would Bowie say , what would he do?” and I just go with that . Lol

Thank you for living your life as a free ass muhfugga . Freedom ain’t always free and it comes with consequences sometimes , but you still chose it tho and for that I’m thankful for you .

Sending love to your beautiful wife Iman and your family on this day . ⚡️✨

An incredibly classy Janelle (see montage), made a heartfelt speech at the Grammy Awards on Sunday, when she spoke out in support of the #TimesUp movement. Watch it over at Rolling Stone.

Space Oddity in Grammy HOF – plus the story of Benj


“You’ve really made the grade”


The GRAMMY Awards department recently announced that David Bowie’s Space Oddity was being inducted into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame (HOF), 49 years after its release as a 45, albeit described in the announcement as “David Bowie’s 1969 time-traveling track “Space Odyssey””! 


Congratulations to all involved with the creation of this classic track, which originally reached #5 on the UK singles chart in 1969 and then hit the top spot on its 1975 reissue.


Space Oddity joins Changes (inducted last year), and the Ziggy Stardust album which joined the GRAMMY Hall of Fame ranks in 1999.


A lot has been said regarding Space Oddity over the years, so much so that if every word written about it were placed end to end, they would reach far above the moon.


However, a very moving story related to the song was posted on slate.com recently, titled: ‘How David Bowie helped my autistic son become himself’.


The story is of Benj, who learned to express himself through Bowie’s music, Space Oddity in particular. Here’s what he had to say regarding his own performance of what is possibly Bowie’s most famous recording:


“The song gives me a feeling of sublimity, I know what it feels like to be odd, I’m ready to sing and not just play guitar for my school, and I want to do a tribute to David Bowie.”

The A to Z of David Bowie Podcast


“Give it a whirl and I’ll love you till Tuesday”


Marc Riley has long flown the Bowie flag very high at the BBC over the years. His loyalty was rewarded directly many times via interviews and even a radio session in October 1999 for the show that Marc co-hosted with Mark Radcliffe. The pair introduced Bowie onstage a couple of times too. Marc also had the privilege of conducting the last ever radio interview with DB. Bowie is frequently featured on his long-running BBC Radio 6 Music show these days too.


Having been a superfan since 1972, Marc is more qualified than most for his next project, The A to Z of David Bowie by Marc Riley and Rob Hughes podcast, which launches on Tuesday 30th January at 3am, with subsequent episodes released every Tuesday at the same time.


The A to Z of David Bowie is available on iTunes, acast and all good podcast services.


Keep reading for an interview with Marc Riley regarding the show.

Total Blam Blam in conversation with Marc Riley – January 2018



TBB: How did The A to Z of David Bowie by Marc Riley and Rob Hughes come about?


MR: Well Bowie has been a huge part of my life and I can say the same for Rob so once we’d kinda accepted the fact that he was no longer with us we tried to work out how we could channel our love of Bowie into something positive. We could have written a Book (well Rob could have written it and I could have coloured in the pictures), but the glut of books that followed David’s death almost immediately ruled that out… of course some of those books were great – which  made our decision not to go down that route even  easier.


I did a Podcast for Adam Buxton – who’s obviously a big Bowie fan too – and I thought maybe that was a way to get the idea out of our system. That was only a few months after David’s death in the June of 2016. Anyway… I ran it past Rob and he was up for doing a podcast.


TBB: Obviously you have taken on a massive undertaking with this, was it a bit daunting?


MR: It really was. And once we started writing down all the subjects we wanted to cover in the A to Z format we realised that there was much more work than we’d realised. I mean… since we started researching David’s life, late 2016 we started hearing of stories and events that we didn’t know anything about. No great surprise really I suppose. There are people out there who have forgotten more about Bowie than Rob or I will ever know – but it was a surprise to us! So many of the Bowie stories make you smile from ear to ear.


TBB: Any examples of that spring to mind?


MR: I love the fact that he nearly made an Album with Christopher Lee… I didn’t know he met the queen as a young boy. There was his relationship with Edgar Broughton which never reached its full potential – but did see Edgar managing to get his way into the after-show party at the 1973 farewell show and get himself – seemingly – heroically  drunk. There’s loads  of stuff. And then  you find yourself delving deep into the albums that have been a part of your life for so long and learning stuff. Like the story of how Aladdin Sane ended up with lightning bolt on his face… ah… there’s too much to recall here.


TBB: How many episodes of the A to Z of David Bowie do you have planned?


MR: To be brutally honest we haven’t a clue. We sat down to record all the subjects we’d gotten together for ‘A’ thinking it would amount to maybe 40 minutes’ worth of podcast time. That turned out to be 110 minutes!! That’s TWO Podcasts. Our ramblings on Aladdin Sane take 25 minutes alone! So far all the  letters we’ve recorded have come in at roughly the same length. 110 minutes. So A, B, C, D and E are all roughly 30-35 minutes long and in 2 parts… but F came out as 3 episodes. Looking at that as a rough guide I’d expect the whole series to be… maybe… 40+ episodes??


TBB: This isn’t the first A to Z you and Rob have done, is it? You also did the punk one for BBC 6 Music, right?


MR: Yeah – what came first, the chicken or the egg? After we’d decided to have a run at a David Bowie A to Z, I saw the opportunity for doing a less specific subject that would work for the show. It’s a tried and tested formula but I knew it would be as good (or as bad) as the content it held.

So I went for ‘Punk and New Wave’ which proved to be really popular. Ironically, so much so that 6 Music decided to edit it down and put it out as a Podcast. Did really well. We’re currently doing a Psych A to Z… but I don’t know if that’s going to a Podcast or not.


TBB: How do people get to hear the A to Z of David Bowie?


MR: Our agency is called Acast. They have an App. And of course Apple Podcasts… or wherever you generally get your podcasts! It launches on Tuesday 30th January at 3am and the following episodes get released every Tuesday at the same time. That’s the plan anyway.


TBB: I notice the A to Z of David Bowie already hit the #1 on the iTunes music podcast chart before it’s even out there, just on the strength of people pre-registering their interest. How have they shown their anticipation?


MR: Positive. Though I’m sure we’ll get some ‘facts’ wrong. David’s life is littered with myths and misinformation. I’m also sure some people won’t agree with our opinions on various Bowie matters… but there’s nothing we can do  about that… PUBLISH  AND BE DAMNED!!


TBB: The A to Z of David Bowie logo is reminiscent of a DavidBowie.com logo which utilised letters from various Bowie album sleeves. Did it take long to get to the final version?


MR: How would I know? You designed it!


TBB: Finally, you and Mark Radcliffe met Bowie on many occasions to interview him and he was a regular guest on your various radio shows. You also introduced a couple of his concerts at Hammersmith and the Manchester Move festival, both in 2002. He was clearly very keen on you, but did he ever comment on the times you attempted to ape his look?


MR: I think he once uttered “Clown!”, which I took as a cue to make up as one for our next meeting. He didn’t blink an eyelid!

Supro recreates Bowie’s Dual Tone Guitar


“With my guitar a Dual Tone Supro”


Supro Pays Tribute to David Bowie with Limited Edition Recreation of his Dual Tone Guitar


Developed by Supro with assistance from the David Bowie Archive, the David Bowie Limited Edition Dual Tone is based on the main guitar David Bowie played on the Reality album and throughout his final world tour, “A Reality Tour”, in 2003-2004. Although he played a variety of guitars throughout his career, Bowie enjoyed a special relationship with the iconic vintage 60’s Supro Dual Tone he had customized to his specifications.


Bowie’s guitarist Earl Slick says, “Of all the electric guitars that David played and owned over the many years that we worked together, he loved the Supro best. He was quite proud of it actually. I’ve never seen him get attached to a guitar, except that one.”


Keep reading for the full press release or visit the dedicated Supro page here


FOOTNOTE: If today’s lyric quotation sounds ever so slightly familiar, that’s possibly because you remember the original lyric from Sweet Head: “With my guitar and me soprano”, which we clumsily adapted.

Supro Pays Tribute to David Bowie with Limited Edition Recreation of his Dual Tone Guitar


Developed by Supro with assistance from the David Bowie Archive, the David Bowie Limited Edition Dual Tone is based on the main guitar David Bowie played on the Reality album and throughout his final world tour, “A Reality Tour”, in 2003-2004. Although he played a variety of guitars throughout his career, Bowie enjoyed a special relationship with the iconic vintage 60’s Supro Dual Tone he had customized to his specifications. Bowie’s guitarist Earl Slick says, “Of all the electric guitars that David played and owned over the many years that we worked together, he loved the Supro best. He was quite proud of it actually. I’ve never seen him get attached to a guitar, except that one.”


During the recording of the Reality album in New York City in early 2003, Bowie purchased two early-60’s Supro Dual Tone guitars on EBay. One of them, which is prominently featured on the cover art of the New Killer Star single, was a 1961 hardtail model. A second Dual Tone was modified by master luthier Flip Scipio, who inlaid the top five fret slots with rainbow colors after installing a Bigsby vibrato at Bowie’s request. “They brought me the second guitar and needed it done very fast, within one day,” recalls Scipio. “That is why I did not reinstall the top frets. The fret filler is made of dyed Japanese maple. David loved the way this guitar looked and sounded, so I chose the colors based on what I thought would look cheerful. I felt that if I can be happy with the guitar, then David would be happy with the guitar as well.” It was this highly customized Supro Dual Tone that became Bowie’s favorite guitar and main live instrument, appeared on the cover of the “A Reality Tour” live album, and inspired this limited edition 2018 re-creation.


Why did Bowie choose the Dual Tone? Guitarist Gerry Leonard, who played on both the Reality album and tour, says: “David was a discerning collector of not only art, but all things to do with music, music artifacts and specific instruments. The Supro was a guitar that nailed a few of these criteria for him. It’s a very stylish guitar and it has a great vibe and sound. It was a fantastic guitar and David loved it so much, it was the only one he wanted to play, even though we had many other great instruments from famous makers available to him.”


Although we know that the guitar’s Art Deco style appealed to Bowie’s well-known flair for design, we also know that he had a fascination with the instrument’s early legacy. He advised James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem to get a Supro Dual Tone specifically because it was the guitar played by power-chord pioneer Link Wray. The Dual Tone famously appears in the promotional artwork for Wray’s 1958 hit song “Rumble”: a recording noteworthy for being the only instrumental song ever to be banned from US radio. Bowie even chose to pay homage to Link Wray, using “Rumble” as a musical interlude during the Reality Tour. Clearly, the rock and roll mythology of Link Wray and his affinity for Supro guitars made a lasting impact on David Bowie.


The Dual Tone model first appeared in Supro catalogs in the early 1950s. The distinctive tone of the Supro Vistatone pickups has been a consistent highlight of this instrument throughout its evolution. Supro’s 1953 catalog boasted: “We sincerely believe the pickup system to be the finest we have ever produced in over two decades of electronic development. Make an honest comparison with any instrument for tone, volume, and performance–you’ll be truly surprised.” Over the subsequent five years after ’53, the neck was improved, headstock changed, body widened, pickup wiring changed, and contoured bevels added to the body. By 1958, the Dual Tone was totally dialled in, and became a bestseller for Supro.


In keeping with the spirit of innovation that evolved the 1953 Dual Tone into the 1958 model favored by Link Wray, the construction of the Bowie guitar has been further developed with subtle tweaks and refinements to carry the torch into the present day—while retaining the vibe of the original instrument. This incarnation of the Dual Tone guitar features a 24 ¾” scale maple neck with a rosewood fretboard and set-neck construction. The alder body has a tummy cut for increased playing comfort, as well as an ergonomic neck joint, allowing full access to the high frets. Hardware appointments include Bigsby vibrato, Wilkinson roller bridge, butterfly tulip tuning pegs and a matched set of vintage-correct Vistatone pickups, designed to replicate the genuine Supro sound that David Bowie loved.


As a final touch, the David Bowie Limited Edition Dual Tone features a mirror-finish Bowie lightning bolt insignia on the face of the headstock. In further tribute to Bowie’s personal favorite Supro guitar, the top five frets have a multi-colored rainbow pattern inlaid into the fretboard to replicate the look of the custom work done by master luthier Flip Scipio for the Reality album and subsequent world tour.

Duncan Jones Announces MUTE Premiere


“I’m living in a silent film…”


@Unklerupert has been in touch with hot news and an update regarding Duncan Jones and MUTE…take it away, fellah…



Duncan Jones announced via Twitter today that his new film, MUTE, will premiere Worldwide on NETFLIX on Friday 23rd February 2018.


In a thread of tweets building up to the much anticipated announcement Duncan gave us the back story to the development…



+ – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – +


“So some of you may be aware that I have previously called MUTE my “Don Quixote.” I did this, as much like Terry Gillian’s fabled film of that name, it seemed everything was against MUTE ever being made.


Back then the film was a very different beast. It was set in London, contemporary and the cast would have been Cary Grant, Boris Karloff & Bela Lugosi. OK. Maybe not that cast…


It was going to be my first film. I sent it to Sam Rockwell who loved it! …but he wanted to play Leo, the part that would later go to Alex Skarsgård. I wouldn’t budge but was so enamoured with Sam, I decided to write something just for him. That was MOON.


Years past, MUTE kept being pushed to the back burner. Life filled up with SOURCE CODE, my amazing wife’s successful battle with cancer, WARCRAFT, dad’s cancer, baby, the wonderful woman who raised me, Marion’s sad loss to brain cancer. We’d do a graphic novel with Glenn Fabry.


But sadly that book never fully came to fruition.


But one day…


NETFLIX came to town!


NETFLIX, these crazy new kids on the block, had this totally crazy philosophy on film making straight out of the 70s. Don’t make 4 quad “please everyone” homogenous blobs! Make films filmmakers are passionate about & let the audience find them!


So here we are.


MUTE, Starring Alex Skarsgård, Justin Theroux & Paul Rudd.


Out on NETFLIX February 23.


Got there in the end!”


+ – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – +


Filmed on location in Berlin between Sept 28th 2016 – 17th Dec 2016 at the World famous Babelsberg Film Studio, located in Potsdam-Babelsberg outside Berlin (Where Fritz Lang’s Metropolis was filmed in 1925) Duncan Jones’ latest film MUTE is described as a Sci-fi Casablanca that Duncan has previously also described as a love letter to Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. Here’s the full blurb…


+ – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – +


Berlin. Forty years from today. A roiling city of immigrants, where East crashes against West in a science-fiction Casablanca.


Leo Beiler (Alexander Skarsgård), a mute bartender has one reason and one reason only for living here, and she’s disappeared. But when Leo’s search takes him deeper into the city’s underbelly, an odd pair of American surgeons (led by Paul Rudd) seem to be the only recurring clue, and Leo can’t tell if they can help, or who he should fear most.”


+ – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – +


MUTE is a spiritual sequel to Duncan’s multiple award winning debut feature MOON being set in the same ‘Mooniverse’. Fans of MOON will be pleased to discover that MUTE sees the welcome return of Sam Rockwell so we *may* discover Sam Bell’s fate following on from the end of MOON… Further MOON related good news is the return of Clint Mansell on soundtrack duties, cinematography from Gary Shaw and Duncan’s long-time producer and partner at Liberty Films, Stuart Fenegan who commented back when MUTE was announced “can’t do sci-fi without Sam and Clint!”


As part of that original announcement in November 2015 Duncan said:


“I’ve been working towards making MUTE for 12 years now. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that we’re finally going to shoot this utterly unique film. The fact that I get to make it with Alexander Skarsgård and Paul Rudd makes it all the more exciting! MUTE is a film that will last. It is unlike any other science fiction being made today.”


Commenting further once MUTE had been picked up by NETFLIX Duncan said:


“Mute is an encapsulation of everything I am fascinated by; noir, science fiction, and unique people in trouble because of who and what they are. I’m delighted to be able to return to Berlin for the shoot, a place I lived for a period of time growing up, and I’m excited to be working with NETFLIX on a film that is so close to my heart.”


So unlike anything is it, that Duncan has been referring to MUTE as Marmite, or Marmute even 😉 Which basically means you’re going to love it or hate it. MUTE then promises to be pure undiluted Jones.


Duncan recently tweeted:


+ – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – +


“Dad quote, and, in a nutshell, why I’m making MUTE”


“If you feel safe in the area you’re working in, you’re not working in the right area. Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth. And when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.”


+ – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – +


Commenting on working with NETFLIX at the end of 2017 Duncan said


“This year I was particularly thankful to NETFLIX for letting me make a movie as a work of artistic therapy for the last few incredibly difficult years.”


MUTE premieres Worldwide on NETFLIX on Friday 23rd February 2018


Keep up to date with all things MUTE by following Duncan on Twitter and the official MUTE Twitter account.


Full MUTE cast and crew available on IMDb.



FOOTNOTE: While you will understand the MarMute visual gag in our montage, you may be wondering what’s going on with Duncan’s hat and beard… maybe keep your eyes peeled when watching MUTE to find out what’s what!

David Bowie is… in Bloomingdale’s: Part 2


“I ran to the window, Looked through a pane or two”


Yesterday we told you that in celebration of the upcoming David Bowie Is at the Brooklyn Museum exhibition, Bloomingdale’s in New York has two windows given over to some of the exhibits and a few of Freddie Burretti’s ‘daywear’ outfits that won’t be in the exhibition.


As promised, our montage shows the other window and a shot of David wearing the featured outfit at Union Station, Los Angeles, in March 1973.


The windows will be up through the end of day on January 28th and are at the 60th Street and Lexington Avenue entrance.


Brooklyn is the final stop of the David Bowie Is world tour and it runs from March 2nd to July 15th.



FOOTNOTE: Yes, the original lyric from Panic In Detroit is: “I ran to the window, Looked for a plane or two…” – The other liberty we have taken (which the eagle-eyed among you may have spotted), is the horizontal flipping of the Bowie LA 73 pic. Very naughty.
