At last, Angie Bowie reveals the truth about what went on behind the scenes during the birth of the Bowie legend…
Also featured are the candid interviews with Trevor Bolder and Woody Woodmansey making this the ultimate critical retrospective of Bowie and the Spiders: from the inside.
The film draws on rare footage of Bowie and the Spiders alongside rare live radio performances from the vaults. Featured here are vintage moments including the earliest experiences in film making with a bizarre low budget version of Space Oddity from 1969 through to the daring experimentational of the 1980 floor show featuring the final performance by the Spiders and a blistering live version of Jean Genie. Every single Bowie album from 1969 to 1974 is also revisited and reassessed.
Veteran rock broadcaster Tommy Vance heads a team of distinguished journalists and critics in this dynamic critical retrospective spanning the birth of Bowie and the Spiders through to the beginning of the Thin White Duke era.
