Description du produit
When David Bowie first met Lou Reed in the early 1970s a bond was formed between the pair that would last until Lou's sad demise in 2013. Built on huge mutual respect, a love of each other's music and a shared passion for living and working as close to the edge as anyone in the music industry has ever strayed, these two iconic artists, despite occasional rifts, remained close and worked together as late as 2003. This film charts the parallel careers of Bowie and Reed, focussing on their joint collaborations, shared interests and other connections. Replete with rare footage, exclusive and archive interviews, and contributions from those who were right there when the pair were at their most co-operative, this film takes and unusual and unique approach to documenting one of modern music's most fascinating partnerships. Including interviews; Angie Bowie, Doug Yule, Billy Name, Leee Black Childers, Jayne County, Jimi LaLumia, John Halsey, Victor Bockris, Danny Fields and many others.
Quando David Bowie nel corso della sua prima visita a New York nei primissimi anni ’70 conobbe Lou Reed (l’indiscusso poeta della metropoli americana allora membro dei seminali Velvet Underground), eravamo solo agli albori di una collaborazione artistica e soprattutto di una solida amicizia e stima durata fino alla scomparsa di Lou nello scorso settembre. Questo film documentario traccia con un approccio unico le carriere parallele delle due grandi icone del rock internazionale, mettendo a fuoco particolarmente i momenti di convergenza artistica e gli interessi condivisi. Numerose le testimonianze di chi ha vissuto i momenti salienti della loro storia come l’ex moglie di David Angie, amici della Factory di Andy Warhol, esperti e biografi ufficiali. Molti anche i contributi video, con footage raro e interviste d’archivio.

David Bowie & Lou Reed: The Thin White Duke vs. The King of New York is a 107 minute DVD that explores the intertwined careers of two of the greatest pop stars ever.
The build up to the period to the 70’s is assessed and an interesting insight in to the Andy Warhol/Velvet Undergound axis gives us essential background in to the 60’s apprenticeship served by Reed. At the same time Bowie was across the Atlantic delivering twee, inoffensive, uninspiring pop; and, there were no indications that his star would ever ascend.
However, the period 1971-1973 had two worlds colliding as Bowie developed a more colourful musical and theatrical landscape; and, in turn he had become positively influenced by the multi-media achievements in New York.
The nascent solo careers of a dynamic duo were enriched via a bond that occurred and from being an admirer Bowie was then hugely responsible for resurrecting the undoubted seminal skills of Lou Reed. David produced Lou and his career kicked on and at the same time Bowie was creating some truly original music of his own.
Also part of an unholy triumvirate was Iggy Pop whose own segment in the story is quite significant. The sound of The Stooges impacted upon Bowie and later on down the road a further collaboration blossomed as Iggy tied up with the lustrous London lad. Along the way there is a kaleidoscope of charismatic characters such as Marc Bolan who also take a central role in the proceedings. The glam and glitter of an electric era in the aural annuls is revived!
Expert analysis and striking footage make this product an extremely worthwhile venture. The early years of a groundbreaking decade filter through this release and a sumptuous story offers reflections of two tune ‘transformers’. This diligent DVD pays testament to some of the significant seminal substance from the vaults of a pair of sadly deceased sonic superstars. The music of David Bowie and Lou Reed deserves the utmost respect and rock n roll is a richer place for their input. Thank you to the Duke and the King! Your memories will always shine bright!
a must have if you love these guys.
