CD Release of 'Strawman Fake Bowie Tape'  

It is interesting to see that some Bowie bootlegs are now being distributed as MP3 data CDs.

In fact, one that I picked up recently (titled Bowie Data 17) has a section titled 'Strawman fake Bowie tape' on the reverse cover.

So who is this Strawman character?

I am not really sure who is behind it but I can proudly say that I own a tape copy from the orignal master . It was leaked to me by a guy really close to the original source. Historic stuff, actually.

I'd kill for that. How much would it take for you to part with your copy, Adam?

Let's get these uploaded somewhere, I would love to hear them, I was reading the original thread yesterday, hillarious stuff.

Do you mean that thread where Strawman gets grilled for putting his fakes up for download on bowieaudio.com, labeled as absolutely rare originals? I tried to find it but my search wasn't successful, can you post the link here?

How much was the Bowie Data 17 CD, Adam? I have not seen it on ebay.

They obviously won't let us repost them on Bowie Audio, but can anyone put them on BTI and let those of us who have only heard of this, but never heard the files have a go? It's much less fun knowing they're fake already, but I am very curious.

Okay, but I must warn you that they're pretty chronic, but please bear in mind the idea behind the hoax was to make the tracks sound as if they were recorded with just Bowie & 12-string on a hand held tape recorder in a flat somewhere in London.

This is going to take a fucking age.

Good times, that thread has just about every quality of a classic TW thread. Newton arguing, Newton revealing his homophobia, Newton being a fucktard, JonnyManic wiping the floor with Newton, Newton being well... Newton...

Oh and that thread reminded me how I much miss those crazy anons...

Yeah, a classic TW thread, which is why Sphinx quickly squelched it over there. If people start fighting like we do here on other Bowie boards TW really will have lost everything that makes it great.

I'm glad to finally have a chance to listen to these tracks, now!

My. I have a whole new respect for you now, Strawman.

Maybe if I write this now, while drunk, you'll all understand.

Thanks for sharing these, they are great.

Adam, how are they listed on this CDr? In five or ten years time these might get traded round as real demos

Re: CD Release of 'Strawman Fake Bowie Tape' new [re: Adam]  

Sorry folks, Our dear Mod is having a SEVERE senior's moment!!

Those discs he refers to are not tradeable ebay-available bona fide bootlegs, they are just home made compilations of what I have downloaded off the net (mostly Bowieaudio), which I lent him a couple of weeks ago. They are merely backups of mp3s, image folders, etc. Nothing to get excited about.

Adam, you twat, I got that fake Strawman Bowie stuff from YOU. LOL!!!

Cheers ~Vic

Congratulations. You're fat Elvis.

Re: CD Release of 'Strawman Fake Bowie Tape' new [re: Vicious]  

You're right and I still have one of three audio cassettes copied directly from the master (I believe EJ and twister have the other two). Pablo, the tracklisting on the CDR is:

01 - Janine
03 - After All
05 - The Prettiest Star
06 - Eight Line Poem
10 - Can't Help Thinking About Me

Which suggests that tracks 2, 4, 7, 8 and 9 are missing from the original tape.

This of course raises the question - where is the other material? 100% Strawman is holding it back I suspect.

And dukewhite, don't even think about it. I won't be parting with my cassette even for Bowie's junior school pencil case.

maybe we could start a petition to open the vaults?

How the hell did you get hold of that??? I'll trade you a Sound And Vision Tour badge foe the pencil case.
