Diamond Gods is a compilation of famous and infamous artists covering their favourite David Bowie songs.
From Blondie’s delivery of Heroes recorded live on their 1980 world tour to new wave heroine Hazel O’Connor’s moving voice-and-harp rendition of Rock N Roll Suicide.
Bad Manners Buster Bloodvessel’s hilarious romp through The Laughing Gnome to Nico’s stunning Heroes – make this is a worthy addition to any music collection, and since Bowie’s death in early 2016, a fitting tribute.
All the tracks on this album are Bowie songs but the interpretations are incredibly diverse, from Asian-tinted dance music from Tacye to full-on electro funk by The Aries Parallel.
Icehouse start the album with grandeur and class and singer/songwriter David Fisher rounds things off with Memory Of A Free Festival This is a unique album, showing what an amazing songwriter David Bowie was.
