Scream Like Sons of the Silent Age new  

Do you think that there is any releation between the Sam mentioned in "Scream Like a Baby" and Sam Therapy mentioned in "Sons of the Silent Age"? 'Scary Monsters' is an album looking back on his 70s past, that's why I ask.

Really funny, nearly as good as the "Bridge or Fridge"discussion.

There is a band around now called King Dice. I think one of the guys in it sometimes calls himself Sam Therapy although that's not his real name.

I'd say they got their name from the Bowie song. They came to my attention when they recorded some stuff with Steve Kilby who is one of my favourite musicians.

Sam Therapy and King Dice. [re: Sysiyo]  

I think that it is a metaphor over some World Leaders during World War II, those the Sons of the silent age (Hitler Jugends?) were listening to over the Radio (listen to tracks by) and maybe it is mostly directed to Hitler how he talked over the radio to the german people. The nazis did produce a cheap Radio that only had one channel where they sent out the Nazi propaganda.

King Dice is the Führer and Sam Therapy is Roosevelt and USA... King Dice is the King of Gambler, right? And Hitler took many chances to get to the top and to gain land in the war. My girlfriend also suggests that Sam Therapy might be the same as Uncle Sam/USA...

What do you guys think?

Hey fiG, that sounds really good. There is a certain charm to that theory.

Berlin In Mind new [re: Sysiyo]  

Yeah, it is a good Interpretation and the fact that Bowie was on his Berlin spell backs it even more. Very interesting, fiGgU.
