Soldiering on [re: ziggfried]  

"I don't think there were blows [between Bowie and James Williamson during the recording of Soldier]. There was a lot of tension around that session. Bowie's visit played a good part actually. Williamson, who had begun production on that record, had gone a little overboard and was trying to harness absurd advanced technology. I wanted to make a punk record. He was trying to hook up the 24 track tape machines to make a 48 track capability in the Welsh countryside in 1979. I was sort of a hair-trigger and impatient musician then -- ready, and dying to record. There was really no need for applied technology at that point, except to glorify a production career that he had in mind for himself basically. And into this came Bowie, who showed up at one session, drove a considerable way to get there, and wanted to get involved. He gets bored a lot and likes to butt-in to all sorts of situations -- a true English rock star. You find him turning up here and there, wherever he thinks the salient point is,at that point, in rock history. I guess he thought he should come out and he came out and he contributed to a really good cut. Unfortunately for Williamson, it also contributed to our rift, and Pat Moran ended up doing the record. I was, uh, unsound at the time. I've been unsound for about half of my career, which is the bad news. The good news is that I've now been sound for more years than I was unsound."

Iggy Pop, Mean Magazine #14, September 1981
