You know what’s a great tune? Bombers by David Bowie.

November 14, 2007

It’s from the Hunky Dory sessions, wasn’t on the record, showed up as a bonus track on the CD. Here’s the first minute. There’s a bump or two but the real sphincter-clencher that probably kept it off the original release is in the second verse. Great tune anyway.

Cheap used copies of the cd on amazon. AFAICT, it’s the cd releases from 1990 and ’96 that have this tune, most of the others just have the tunes from the original release. Also, 99 cents gets you a live version from Bowie at the Beeb either on Amazon or iTunes.



  1. Weeping Wall is one of my favorite Bowie tunes

  2. I’ve been listening to it on repeat today for a while…indeed, a brilliant tune. Makes me want to start calling people “cobblers”.

  3. I thought cobblers was Brittish for “dag nab it.”

  4. hmm apparently it can also mean “a message that seems to convey no meaning” or is another cockney version of testicles. Any which way it works as Bowie uses it.
