If there’s one pop artist that multiple generations can relate to its David Bowie. There’s always a tinge of nostalgia listening to Bowie’s mellifluous tones whether it is listening to the Man Who Fell To Earth, Thin White Duke, Aladdin Sane or of course The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust, which signified his ‘comeback’ in 1972 after a brief lull in his pop career.
ZIGGY, THE SONGS OF DAVID BOWIE pays homage to Bowie, the pop phenomenon – the influential individualist with the uncanny ability to push boundaries and transform himself and the world around him. Performed by four of Australia’s leading contemporary musicians and performers – iOTA, Jeff Duff, Steve Balbi and Brydon Stace – Ziggy, the Songs of David Bowie is as multi-dimensional as the man himself.
This week sees the domination of The Black Eyed Peas continue, as they break Madonna’s 1985 record to become the first act in twenty four years to replace themselves at the top of the ARIA Singles Chart. “I Gotta Feeling” becomes the group’s sixth number one single, putting them on equal footing with Eminem and Kylie Minogue, with only Delta Goodrem earning more No. 1’s (8) this decade. “Boom Boom Pow” drops to #2 after having spent a huge six weeks at the top.
Hilltop Hoods continue to hold strong at #1 on the ARIA Album Chart with their album “State Of The Art”, becoming the first Australian artist to spend multiple weeks at number one since Silverchair’s “Young Modern” in 2007. They have gone one better than their 2006 debut album “The Hard Road”, which spent one week in the number one position.
