The Best Of Looks Unfamiliar #4: The Real Bowie Says To The Imagined Bowie


Looks Unfamiliar is a podcast in which writer and occasional broadcaster Tim Worthington talks to a guest about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever seems to.

This is a collection of highlights from shows nineteen to twenty four, featuring Paul Kirkley on The Kids From Fame Again, Garreth F. Hirons on Sweet 75, Darrell Maclaine on The Brennan JB7, James Gent on When The Wind Blows by David Bowie, Ros Ballinger on Microsoft Explorapedia, and Jonny Morris on Jesta Giggle by The Barron Knights. Along the way we’ll be finding out why The Barron Knights should have covered T.V.O.D., where the whistling from Never Let Me Down was ‘borrowed’ from, which CDs you should never trust your car with, and which former member of Nirvana really loves accordions. Plus there’s also something you may not have heard before – Tim on Betamax Video Club talking about 1986’s cinematic highpoint Absolute Beginners, and an extra downhill slaloming surprise at the end…

If you’d like to help support Looks Unfamiliar, why not get one of Tim’s books? There’s Can’t Help Thinking About Me, which features plenty more about David Bowie, and is available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here. And all of the others. They’re all good.
