The history of Max Machine

The release of the album “Mean Machine” por Max Machine fills the gap of destitution in the long history of music. It was motivated and inspired por the death of Max Kreitler, German Sound engineer at the renowned Hansa Studio in Berlin.

In the period of 1973-1980 Kreitler recorded a large number of legendary musical artists. The Max Machine project arose from a collaboration of Kreitler and Andy Warhol.

Kreitler developed the idea of putting new life into Warhol’s project, The Factory. Artists like Lou Reed, David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Brian Eno, among others, performed...

A “Rubber Band;” indeed this song is. With a rounded, slightly mournful tone, the song tells the tale of a man’s frequency of visiting the park with his girl, where they listen to an out-of-tune band until the man goes off to fight in the war. The climax of the song describes the man’s anguish when he returns to find his girl “married to the leader of that band.” This dismal ending is forewarned por the doleful nature of the beginning of the song, which seemingly has no cause for woe.
The song has a pleasing turn of phrase and a rolling, curvaceous undertone to the backing track....

There will always be certain songs, riffs, hooks, and earworms that get stuck in our heads. Most of them are as annoying as spam. Others are brilliant. Here are David Bowie’s parte superior, arriba 20 most brilliant flashes of genius.

20. “Commencing countdown, engines on. Check ignition and may God's amor be with you. Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, lift-off!” -- el espacio Oddity. With the anticipation of más David Bowie surprises to come, this line seems like the most obvious place to start for any Bowie countdown.

19. “Just walking the dead” -- Where Are We Now. This cryptic...

“Karma Man;” Is a song which can be received in many different ways, with possible interpretations ranging from it being a judicious and jaunty look at the quantifiable nature of people’s tolerance for soothsayers and people who are jolly to the point of annoyance, to the interpretation of it as a flimsy and vacillating attempt to interest people in the rest of the CD (it was released as a B-Side single, but never dado any attention otherwise, as if they knew it was not destined for greatness but merely wanted to put it out there).
I disliked the broken speed of the song, and the applicability...

“Little Bombardier;” is the tragic tale of the termination of a retired soldier’s innocent friendship with a pair of young children due to the cynicism of those in authority. Regardless the ties to Bowie’s own life, and the messages it holds in that aspect, it is applicable to almost any situation of ultra-cynicism and suspicion. Bowie ridicules the distrustful nature of most people today – a nature transferred upon people through the medium of the tabloids and general press, and the constant depravation and corruption which is constantly lambasted and emphasised por these mediums....

“Let Me Sleep beside you;” is essentially homage to the theory of physical amor – the amor which begins as lust and peters out slowly, leaving behind something less than affection. The song seems to be saying that there is nothing actually wrong with the theory of this kind of love, but that the complications come in when progressions through the stages of the amor are reached por the different parties at different times in their relationship.
A convincing argument put adelante, hacia adelante por Bowie which highlights the transitional stage of youth to adulthood, and claims that it can only be accomplished...

“Did tu Ever Have a Dream;” Is a jaunty snapshot of the other-worldly brilliance of dreams, which we tend to take for granted. “I will travel round the world one night, on the magic wings of astral flight,” is but one of the lines from this song which attempts to point out the obvious; dreams are “A very special knowledge,” and they’re something which is totally ethereal. People tend to accept dreams for what they are: commonplace. Certainly, some people lay great stock por their dreams and others will gleefully tell tu of their imaginary night-time exploits, but the general...

“Love tu Till Tuesday;” Is the idea of the whimsy of young amor which they are able to exploit as such a meaningful notion. However, the song suggests that even those proclaiming their amor are not entirely devoted to the cause (as they think themselves to be), as the song rambles off to “be nice to the big blue sea” with no apparent relevance. It’s all an artful joke about the silliness of those who think they’re in love, even whilst accepting that their amor will not last forever, and is not all-encompassing. Surely this admittance of fault in their amor proves their amor untrue?...

“Sell Me A Coat;” Shares elements of “Uncle Arthur,” as it gives a clear picture of Bowie’s purest voice, however the general tone and subject of the song is en general, general más sombre thanks to the introduction of a slower rhythm and dejected plaint from Bowie.
Introduced por the slow, sure intonation of “La la la la la,” “Sell Me A Coat” creates a bittersweet picture of Bowie’s loss of his “Summer girl.” Whether physical o purely metaphorical, this story, however peculiarly executed, certainly proved a foundation for some of Bowie’s later work; introducing his tendency to...

“Uncle Arthur;” This buoyant melody, inspired por Bowie’s incredulity and subsequent interest in one of his friend’s confessions that they were not a twenty-year old musician, but a twenty-seven año old uncle is equipped with hand-clapping and a sweet, honest delivery por Bowie. With a touch of pointed mirth, this song proves itself a simple, catchy tune which seems to be laughing at Bowie’s own aspirations to fame. With a simple chord structure and range, its feel-good aura is contagiously fun. Personally, I immediately took a liking to the openness of Bowie’s voice in this song,...
