"In England, it was always presumed that it was written about the space landing, because it kind of came to prominence around the same time. But it actually wasn't," he later said. "It was written because of going to see the film 2001, which I found amazing... it was really a revelation to me."

I’m trying to think if there’s anyone who truly has honed his craft to a point that you are really, really glad that he stayed with one thing all the way through his life. Of course there is. How stupid of me! Bob Dylan.

This will either drive you up the wall or you will produce some amazing drawings while listening to it. You could probably cook a fish to this as well.

Let's dance. Saw this on Africa Channel or maybe Link last year and play it at least once a week. What time is it in Paradise indeed?

Quite strange but atmospheric. The late Arthur Russell was supplying all the background effects on his electric cello.

The great Kwesi Johnson at his saddest. This forceful slice of narrative is part of the continuing evolvement from griot through the Last Poets to Mos Def.

GYBE are among my, erm, two favourite Montreal bands, Arcade Fire being the other. All Montreal bands have around nine members, I believe.

I'm not a big Baker fan but there's something about this performance that touches me. I think it's the break in her voice among all this gaiety and optimism.

Different Trains: I. America - Before the War

David Bowie
David Bowie
Actor, Musician
One of the late 20th century's most affecting works. I love the use of speech as a source for melody. But it's so much more than a concept, it's also impossibly moving.

There aren't that many son/father songs but this is the best of them as far as I know. Rufus is just simply one of the great writers.

Damien Hirst

David Bowie
David Bowie
Actor, Musician
You admire Damien Hirst, though. He’s different. I think his work is extremely emotional, subjective, very tied up with his own personal fears — his fear of death is very strong — and I find his pieces moving and not at all flippant.

Lucian Freud

I admire the trickery of his work, the cankerous skin, which is nice and grungy. But I don’t buy into him being the greatest painter that we have

David Bomberg

David Bowie
David Bowie
Actor, Musician
I find his kind of bas-relief way of painting extraordinary. Sometimes I’m not really sure if I’m dealing with sculpture or painting. Plus, I’ve always been a huge David Bomberg fan. I love that particular school. There’s something very parochial English about it. But I don’t care. I like Kossoff for the same reason.
People from David Bowie

Frank Auerbach

David Bowie
David Bowie
Actor, Musician
Art was, seriously, the only thing I’d ever wanted to own. It has always been for me a stable nourishment. I use it. It can change the way that I feel in the mornings. The same work can change me in different ways, depending on what I’m going through. For instance, somebody I like very much indeed is Frank Auerbach. I think there are some mornings that if we hit each other a certain way — myself and a portrait by Auerbach — the work can magnify the kind of depression I’m going through.

Tintoretto

David Bowie

Yeah, I collected very early on. I have a couple of Tintorettos, which I’ve had for many, many years.
