By now you must’ve heard the news: David Bowie has left us. Tell us if you do find ‘Life on Mars’, David.
Did you know Ziggy Stardust himself descended upon the island in 1983, and, as space oddities tend to do, filmed a documentary here? It’s called Ricochet, and it follows the golden god (sorry, Robert Plant, we’re nicking that nickname) on his South-East Asian tour.
Check out this excerpt that shows Bowie chatting with a cabbie about, among other things, hanging drug offenders (‘How do they kill them?’ he asks.) It’s not a new video, but a timely one nonetheless.
Ashes to ashes, funk to funky. RIP David Bowie.
