While we're busy pointing... [re: Emil]  

Sorry to shoot down the stargazers, but I don't believe for one second that there is any more than perhaps 2 or 3 underdeveloped song ideas in 'Contamination'. And that would be at a stretch.

I think it was just an idea that Bowie got excited about the prospect of working on, bent the truth about working on it a little, and then got bored with it, so it fell by the wayside, ala Ziggy Stardust musical, Ziggy3k etc.

As for TMWFTE soundtrack, again, 2 or 3 underdeveloped song ideas. That album really became 'Low'.

I used to be with it, but then they changed what "it" was. Now, what I'm with isn't it, and what's "it" seems weird and scary to me.

Well... both Bowie and Eno (and probably others from the recording crew?) have witnessed that they did spend so many hours in the studio and did record so many hours of material. How many under- or overdeveloped song ideas there was in that material we do not know -- a lot of it was probably loose jamming that sounded like crap in the end.
But we have some hard evidence: a bootleg with outtakes that doesn't sound bad at all, some quite unique and different from what was on Outside.

As for the TMWFTE, I think you are even more istaken. Bowie apparently had enough material that he could go to Roeg and present it. I think he went as far as recording a demo with a number of full songs, have a faint memory that one of the musicians saying that (and naming a song or two?) in an interview the other year.

I'll get back to you after some research.

It's SAILER, idiot!
