Bowie Ep. 8 - Diamond Dogs and 1984
Are you a Diamond Dogs fan, or not so much? Does it correlate to how you feel about Orwell’s 1984, the inspiration for the album? We can recognize 1984 as a great work. We can agree it’s a great work, and be very happy not to have to read it again any time soon. And most people we’ve spoken with, whether they enjoyed 1984 or not, do recognize its merit. That isn’t always the case for Bowie’s Diamond Dogs. We dive into that, as well as some history behind the making of the album. And, we talk about the connection of the album to the book, and the feelings Diamond Dogs evoked in us both.
