Culture Bunker: Bowie doc Moonage Daydream, author David Keenan… and news for all listeners
Weekend pop culture! Does Bowie mega-documentary Moonage Daydream do the Dame justice? Cult author David Keenan tells us about his astonishing, cryptic novel of occult hippiedom Industry of Magic And Light. And we’ve got big news for all listeners… plus a lot of new music, TV and movies to tide you over the autumn.
“My father was illiterate, but he could tell the most amazing stories. He had such faith in language and told me ‘You need to read, it’ll change your life’.” – David Keenan
“Making a film about Bowie without mentioning his prodigious intake of cocaine is a bit like mentioning Maradona without mentioning the football.” – Andrew Harrison
“Moonage Daydream doesn’t feel like a sellout or a museum piece. It’s designed to feel as real as it felt at the time, not set in amber.” – Sian Pattenden
“You should walk through art into life on the other side.” – David Keenan
