DAVID BOWIE / EDWARD BELL / SCARY MONSTERS


Ci ha sempre affascinato la collaborazione artistica tra David Bowie e l'artista inglese Edward Bell per la copertina dell'album "Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)" del 1980, (collaborazione poi continuata nel 1991 per l'album "Tin Machine" II). Un momento di alta creatività, la combinazione tra le foto di Brian Duffy (gia' artefice della famosa foto della copertina di "Aladdin Sane") e l'arte figurativa di Edward Bell. E' anche un bellissimo album.

We've always been fascinated by the artistic collaboration between David Bowie and the english artist Edward Bell for the cover of the 1980 "Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)" album, (collaboration that went further in 1991 for the "Tin Machine II" album). A moment of high creativity, the combination of phototography (from Brian Duffy, famous for the mega-famous "Aladdin Sane" cover shoot) and figurative painting from Edward Bell. Is it also a fantastic album music-wise.
