Dancing In The Street: New Orleans Throws A Memorial Parade For David Bowie



January 19, 2016
ALISON FENSTERSTOCK



...

Erika Goldring for NPR



Mardi Gras Day was still close to three weeks away. But on Saturday afternoon, Jan. 16, the French Quarter was gridlocked with costumed frolickers, a massive, glittery throng radiating out through the narrow streets from the historic traditional-jazz venue Preservation Hall. The occasion? A parade in memory of David Bowie, led by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

It's not a stretch to imagine that David Bowie fandom would be rampant in a city for which flamboyant, gender-ambivalent dressing up, not to mention music, is a way of life. That, combined with a perfectly warm and sunny afternoon, the beginning of the Carnival season and, certainly, interest in the parade's co-hosts Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire, who have lived in New Orleans for about two years, drew multiple thousands of fans downtown — so many that the blocks outside the Hall and the parade's end point, the rock club One Eyed Jacks, were almost impassable. The band, led by Butler, who sang through a small red megaphone and Chassagne, who played a keytar, left Preservation Hall and gamely shoved its way through the mass toward the Mississippi River and then back, along a route about a half-dozen blocks long, playing Bowie songs arranged for parading brass.

Bowie was an ardent fan of Arcade Fire. In 2005, they recorded a live EP together; eight years later, he contributed backing vocals to the band's album Reflektor. Standing on Preservation Hall's balcony with Chassagne and Ben Jaffe, the Hall's creative director, Butler spoke briefly about the shock of his friend's death. "It felt like a planet exploded," he said. He opened a bottle of wine and poured a splash onto the crowd.

Chassagne and Butler have been spending a lot of time with the Hall band since relocating. In December, they joined the group on a weeklong trip to Cuba. Just before leaving, Jaffe said later, they had begun rehearsing Bowie's "Modern Love," with its ebullient horn bursts, together. (When the parade and its aftermath were done and the huge crowd dispersed, the band members returned to Preservation Hall to play the night's three regular trad-jazz sets. The couple joined them onstage to close the first one with "Modern Love.")

Since his death, an avalanche of keen appreciations have been written on the multiple layers and levels of David Bowie's omnivorous musical appetite, including his plastic-soul forays into funk and disco. Bowie, whose first instrument was the saxophone, would have likely been pleased or at least entertained to hear "Modern Love" and "Fame" arranged for strutting, with sousaphone thump and trumpet blasts, as well as explosively brassy, rumbling versions of "Suffragette City" and "Heroes." Blackstar, his sweeping, atmospheric final testament, was another showcase for his ongoing interest in jazz, employing the avant-garde Donny McCaslin Quartet as backing band. And not for nothing, Bowie has cited as a powerful influence and inspiration Little Richard, who honed his own wild sound (and look) in career-making early-'50s sessions at Cosimo Matassa's J&M Studio in the Quarter.

Second lines come from the older jazz funeral custom in New Orleans, the structured ritual of accompanying a body from the site of a memorial service to the site of burial. The "first line" comprises the casket, family and close friends and a band with parade-friendly — that is, portable — instrumentation: bass and snare drums and horns. The second line is the group of onlookers that follows, walking first to the somber rhythm of a dirge, and then, after the body is "cut loose" at the cemetery, dancing to a joyous, upbeat brass-band whomp. (The dirge that began Preservation Hall's parade was "Oh! You Pretty Things," played at a solemn tempo.) Late in the nineteenth century, Social Aid and Pleasure Clubs — community groups that are exactly what they sound like, cooperating to help members in need and to have fun — began presenting second-line parades with brass bands out of pure celebration. Most New Orleans weekends, except during the hottest summer months, deliver at least one such parade.

Both expressions of the second line are deeply New Orleanian practices, invested with history and meaning. After the event, as Butler DJed Bowie songs on the club's balcony while Chassagne and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band's Walter Harris drummed along, Ben Jaffe, who also plays bass and sousaphone in the Hall band, pointed out that he had been careful to bill it as a memorial parade. "The idea of a second line is so sacred," he said. "Not a lot of people from outside of New Orleans have been honored with that." (The only one most people I asked could remember, in recent history, was a massive second line in memory of Michael Jackson organized by the Revolution Social Aid and Pleasure Club in June 2009, a week after Jackson's death.)

Jaffe took over management of the venue and band shortly after graduating from Oberlin College's conservatory in the early '90s. His parents, Allan and Sandra Jaffe, had run the place since 1961, hiring players who remembered the earliest days of jazz and creating a gathering spot — often racially integrated, flouting Jim Crow — for French Quarter bohemians and fans of traditional jazz, whose popularity had been on the wane. Preservation Hall still presents three traditional sets nightly, in a hundred-ish-capacity showroom that hasn't changed much in fifty-odd years. The audience sits on wooden benches or on the floor, quite literally at the band's feet; there's no bar or restroom access. But over the course of the younger Jaffe's tenure, the Hall has also carefully expanded its purview to present or record with an eclectic list of collaborators. John Oates, Jimmy Buffett (who began his career busking on the streets of the Quarter in the '60s, as Preservation Hall was starting its own) Bombino, the Alabama Shakes and Shovels and Rope have all played the Hall in the past three years.

Tom Waits, Ani DiFranco, Merle Haggard, Jim James and Jason Isbell, among others, have all also recently recorded with the Hall band, which is an active host to its performing guests. During those special live performances, the band doesn't cede the stage; it actively backs the featured act. Those new experiments are arguably helped along by the fact that many members of its current first-string band are younger, more connected to pop, R&B and even hip-hop, as well as traditional jazz. Last year, the Hall band shared the stage with local bounce-music icon DJ Jubilee as well as with the rappers Fiend, who frequently collaborates with Curren$y, and Nesby Phips, a great-nephew of Mahalia Jackson who's worked with Juvenile and Lil Wayne. There's also the natural hybridity of music in South Louisiana, where brass bands and zydeco musicians have regularly adopted elements of funk, soul, pop and hip-hop for decades.

A parade for David Bowie fits not unreasonably into the evolving Hall. It surely fits into New Orleans, a city that believes so strongly in the transformative power of masking that its calendar includes a season — and since 1875, a legal holiday — during which obscuring your identity and trying on new ones is the rule. The French Quarter teemed with Ziggy Stardusts, Goblin Kings and creepy clowns but also with people in sundry unrelated wigs, masks, tutus, boas, hats, suits, ties, gowns and other regalia following, arguably, one of the great directives of Bowie: Feel beautiful, being yourself. Or being somebody else.

Erika Goldring for NPR



Among the costumed revelers in their freaky best were several sporting copies of the gauzy blindfold Bowie wore in the video for the Blackstar single "Lazarus," which was released three days before his death and is now, of course, widely read as a work of art about it. In the video, with the fabric around his eyes, he clutches the blanket of a narrow hospital bed as the camera closes in on the veins that stand out on his bony hands and throat, and the deep wrinkles around his mouth. He's made himself into a grim specter of mortality, a vision of death — or of a strange zone after life but before death, where the light is gray and the shadows get longer.

A lot of traditional masking groups take to the streets on Mardi Gras Day, including Mardi Gras Indians, in their elaborately beaded and feathered suits, and Baby Dolls, women in poofy bloomers and frilly hats whose practice dates back to black Storyville, at the beginning of the twentieth century. One of those, thought to be about as old, is the North Side Skull and Bones Gang. At the crack of dawn, carrying sticks and wearing handmade skeleton suits, they start to knock on doors in the Treme neighborhood. Most wear papier-mache skull masks and aprons hand-printed with messages like "The End Is Near," "Too Late" or ominously, "You Next." They kick off the last day of carnival, the literal farewell to the flesh, as visions of death come knocking, a stark reminder that all flesh really is temporary.

In an entry on jazz funerals and second line parades for Knowla.org, the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities' encyclopedia of all things boot-state, Tulane music professor Matt Sakakeeny wrote that the jazz funeral "celebrates life at the moment of death." The Carnival season and its aftermath, Lent and Easter, is similar, a cycle of life, death and rebirth marked by ceremony.

So much of the strange and elegant Blackstar resonates now as a graceful final testament, a sort of ceremonial exit run through — especially "Lazarus" — with awareness of mortality. Like the Skull and Bones gangs or the Lazarus maskers, it was a reminder of death during the celebration of life, and like a jazz funeral, a burst of vitality in the midst of mourning — an escort from the world of the living to whatever comes after, a celebration of life at the moment of death, the last great transformation.

I have lost five family members since last July. I've never known anything like it. It's fucking scary. Now I've got fucking skin cancer, damned Australian UV levels. Fuck the beach! I come home from my cousin's funeral, and I hear on SKY; Bowie's dead. I don't get all dewy eyed when celeb's die, but Bowie; I'm gutted. I know we all gotta go one day but, this is one tough mofo to bear RIP Bowie. An innovator to the end.

David Bowie – 1971


January 27, 2016 by: John Swenson



Readers may be shocked by some of the comments Bowie expresses here, but Bowie later disavowed many of these kinds of comments blaming them on mental instability caused by his drug problems.–Ed.



A day after David Bowie died I got a phone call from manager Rueben Williams. “Tell me your Bowie story. I know you’ve got one.” Well, yes—I interviewed Bowie in 1971 on his first trip to America. It was for Zygote magazine, which folded before the story could be published. The Man Who Sold the World was the new album, before Bowie became Ziggy Stardust and went on to fame. He talked a lot about his philosophy and what he was planning to do. We took him to the airport on his way back to England and when we picked him up at the apartment where he was staying he was listening to a new album, the Velvet Underground’s Loaded, over and over again.



...

I pulled out my old loose leaf notebook with the handwritten transcript in pencil and re-read the interview. I became a fan of Bowie’s after Space Oddity. The title track, with its astronaut Major Tom, was a great science fiction–oriented piece, but other tracks also had fascinating SF themes. The mysterious “Cygnet Committee” reminded me of the Philip K. Dick novels I was greedily devouring, and “Memory of a Free Festival” was a psychedelic meditation complete with an alien visitation that rivaled anything Pink Floyd had produced.

I was puzzled by The Man Who Sold the World when I first listened, expecting more of Space Oddity. There was no way I could have known that the radical shift between projects was a precursor to Bowie’s relentlessly variegated sequence of ideas and identities. But there was a connection through the two albums that continued into his next record, Hunky Dory, and its follow up, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars. Bowie was envisioning—perhaps even conjuring—a new evolution of humans: Homo Superior.



Please explain “Cygnet Committee.”

That first part is supposed to be the kind of guy who would put money into so-called underground activities, putting backing behind it hoping that he would get something out of it on a material level. And it did soothe his conscience a bit. There’s probably people over here like that as well. A kind of harmless… Okay call him a liberal, then. Ah, the second section were the Cygnet Committee, the people he had helped. I didn’t bother spelling this out at the time, but I realized very quickly after I recorded it that I should have been a little more specific. Although it’s worked nicely because some people have taken it totally different from the way I intended it and they’ve got a fine old meaning out of the whole thing.



Space Oddity strikes me as being religious. “Memory of a Free Festival” is sort of like the drug religion.

It was a drug-oriented festival. Even if I had tried to write the song without drugs in mind I would have rather not written the song. Everybody was, all of us were very heavily into drugs.

The physical body is being put to the limits of its exertion at the moment. Never before in the history of mankind have we been required to do so much in such a short space of time. It’s very hard for us to be natural.



Do you still consider yourself a Buddhist? Do you look at it as a religion or a philosophy?

[After a long pause, Bowie points out the window to a hotel across the street.]
The lights over there are very amazing to me. They are twinkling and they seem very wonderful things, and yet I have them in my own room but I don’t really take much notice of them. If that’s any kind of answer…  It’s with me all the time; I’ll never be able to forget it, because possibly I am it a bit. I can still look at it as an incredible way of life or a philosophy. I wish that I could become… disciplined enough to immerse myself in that lifestyle. But I fall back on the fact that I’ve absorbed a lot of it already. Then I think, well I’m doing it the Western way. Or maybe I’m not doing it at all, just taking out of it what I needed to get through my existence.



There’s a big difference between those two albums, not only an attitude difference but a difference in the kind of images that the songs give. In some ways The Man Who Sold the World was a depressing album. Space Oddity seemed a lot clearer, less confused.

Well, I’m enjoying life much more. I’ve slowed down a hell of a lot. I’m still too close to that new one that’s just come out, to listen to it and analyze it. It would be better if you could take a specific song…



All right, “The Width of a Circle.”

“Width of a Circle” covers a period from when I was about 17 to just before I recorded this album. Jesus, my next album is going to be totally different from either of these two. I can’t relate to Man very easily because I’m still pretty near to it and I’m still having something of a difficult time at the moment. It’s much calmer again and it’s back to that, but with a different edge because now I’m happy, and I really mean it now, I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I got married last year, I’ve been married for one year, and it’s been the best year of my life. My wife’s pregnant now and I’ll have a child in two months’ time. I don’t live in London anymore and I intend on coming over here to live. I made up my mind yesterday that I’m coming here to live—only for a couple of years, ’cause there’s a lot of other places I’d like to live in as well. Everything’s exciting again.



What about “All the Madmen”?

The guy in that story has been placed in a mental institution and there are a number of people in that institution being released each week that are his friends. Now they’ve said that he can leave as well. But he wants to stay there, ’cause he gets a lot more enjoyment out of staying there with the people he considers sane. He doesn’t want to go through the psychic compromises imposed on him by the outer world. [Pauses.] Ah, it’s my brother. ’Cause that’s where he’s at.



How about “She Shook Me Cold”?

Well, the two guys I was working with, drummer Woody Woodmansey and guitarist Mick Ronson, are semi-pro musicians from the North. They had a lot of trouble with my stuff ’cause they’re blues freaks, ah, and it’s all very hard and ultra-masculine stuff, so I thought I’d write one for them. And they loved it; they played their guts out on it! Tony Visconti is still producing, doing Tyrannosaurus Rex and such. “Black Country Rock” was written for Marc Bolan.

“The Supermen,” that was the seed of an idea of Homo Superior I was toying with. The coming of the New Man. I’ve written a lot of songs around that theme and only today I got an insight into another vehicle by which Homo Superior would arrive here. They were taping a show at WABC AM, one of the public service shows, and the Jewish Defense League people were being interviewed. There was a guy sitting on a piano bench in the studio. He’s taking Hebrew lessons with the fellow who’s the head of the JDL. It was Bob Dylan, who has gotten very involved with his Jewish heritage.

Ain’t that a mindfucker? As you can see there is food for thought. The “revolution” might not be so much of a political thing when it does come, but a race survival thing, as it surely is becoming here as part of the black/white struggle. If the population explosion goes on at the rate it’s been going, the politics of the whole thing will drop out and will become a matter of a race revolution. Whether that will produce a race of Homo Superior, we shall see. This idea is only vaguely seeding itself in my head at the moment, just today, and yesterday. I’ve got to think about it a lot more before I write about that particular idea. That was purely a mystical thought, a humanoid that lived forever, even though his gods were dying. It’s a murderer, a guy capable of murdering someone who found a way to kill people; he would be the new god.



I flashed on ancient Greek war heroes who would die intact when I heard that.

Yeah. It wasn’t based on that but it certainly is a parallel. I saw an interesting thing the other night on one of the Star Trek shows. Gassy show. When that embryonic force got into the spaceship and neutralized all their weapons yet kept them fighting each other inside the ship and thriving on that energy. If that had stayed around it would have been like that, it probably would have approached the Superman.



Are the songs you’re writing on this theme going to be the basis of your next album?

The new LP is just going to be a general series of observations, I’ve got like 20 numbers so far, two albums’ worth at the moment. My ego says I should put out a double album but my sales figures show that I shouldn’t do one.

By the time I’m ready to record I’ll select the ones that are up to my present way of thinking. However I’ll be thinking two months from now I don’t know. I’m a radical thinker in that I go from extreme to extreme. I find it stimulating. I’d hate to think that people considered me to have a point of view. The foremost way of expansion is to accept. Listen to people and learn from everyone and everything you see. We are told we have ultimate knowledge within ourselves and I think we can somewhat get onto the right road by looking at our fellow man. You can do so much on your own, but you can’t hide the fact that we are here with each other.



How do you see your role as an artist communicating through albums?

I like a professional attitude to media because it’s so important that if you’re going to communicate, you communicate right. You should know and study your media before you use it, and music is a very hard medium to use and you have to master it. You have to be graphic to be effective because this is a very fast era and to impress you must hit hard. People must be able to understand you instantly.

I would like to fulfill an image… because the people in this business are purely images. The audience just relates to whichever image they want. I would like to supply yet another image. I would like to supply the image of the underlying feeling of… the coming of a new world, not necessarily a new society.

It’s a very intangible state at the moment; hopefully the LP will explain it all.



Do you see yourself coming out a tradition of English psychedelic “head” bands like Pink Floyd, Arthur Brown, Procol Harum?

Don’t forget that England’s always been more of a philosophic nature than America.



But the American counterpart to that is the Grateful Dead, which is a totally different direction.

Well, dare I say that the Americans approach it with more of a primitive idealism. Not so much that, but also because everything moves so fast over here you’ve got to cut out the crap and get right down and lay home an idea very hard, and in very graphic details, whereas in England, we take our time about that and philosophize… we’re lethargic, we don’t produce any action. We just talk a lot.



Do you think that’s behind the development of these fantastically intricate concept bands?

Yes. Also, there’s more of a classical strain running through our entire musical tradition, whereas the young people in your country seem to be very aware that their heritage lies in the folk music tradition of this country.

There’s another thing to consider, with Traffic living in the shadow of Stonehenge and all. England is the strongest mystical force in the Western world. We don’t know it, none of us know it now, but it’s being revived gradually. There are so many empires of magical thought in our country that we’ve lost, forgotten through the ages.

Do you know who else was very hot on England’s magical force? Hitler. He wanted to possess our country for that reason; he needed that power to develop his Aryan race. Himmler, his right hand man, sent over 117 million pounds of SS money trying to find the Holy Grail in England. In England, the Druids have access to a lot of the Nazi books. They were turned on to the idea of Homo Superior long before anyone else. They found out that that was what the Nazi thing was about and they just collected all the books before anybody else got interested in it, or even was aware that there was such a thing as Homo Superior.



What is David Bowie?

What is David Bowie? David Bowie is the image, David Jones is me. But David Bowie is not a false person; I mean I am, also, David Bowie. I am schizoid. I’m as schizoid as my brother, except that I’m in the music business where I can get away with a lot more than my brother could get away with in the job that he had. I mean he was put into an institution for being like me. This is the fantastic quality of this business. Our level of standards of living is totally insane and absurd—to the civilian [laughs at the word] world. This army, it’s a pop army of madmen. The whole thing’s a symbolic army. I’m sure this is true, especially in England as we don’t have any more National Service, especially ’cause of this big virile blues kick that we’ve got going. Ah, it does feel like an army; I get a bit scared at times.

Something Cool Apparently Happens When David Bowie’s ‘Blackstar’ Is Exposed to Sunlight


By Nick DeRiso May 3, 2016 2:15 PM


...



Some industrious fans have apparently discovered one more parting gift from David Bowie. They say they left the vinyl-edition cover of Blackstar, the late rocker’s final release, exposed to sunlight – and were thrilled as the image transformed.
Originally conspicuously black, in keeping with the title, the star on the LP’s cover reportedly becomes dotted with an entire galaxy of stars. See for yourself in the above image, which was uploaded to Imgur. (We recommend you take the vinyl disc itself out of the sleeve before trying this at home, by the way.)

Blackstar arrived just days before Bowie’s sudden death in January. Only later did fans learn of his lengthy, secret battle with cancer, and how Bowie had struggled to complete the project. “He made Blackstar for us, his parting gift,” Tony Visconti, Bowie’s longtime producer, memorably said. “I knew for a year this was the way it would be. I wasn’t, however, prepared for it.”

Afterward, every element of the album was dissected, from its lyrics to its stark cover to its imagery-laden videos. In some cases, you didn’t have to look far: Blackstar opens with the line, “Look up here, I’m in heaven.”

On the other hand, this latest Easter egg moment, if true, was so well hidden that it took months to discover. “He always did what he wanted to do,” Visconti said. “And he wanted to do it his way and he wanted to do it the best way. His death was no different from his life – a work of art.”

Not true.  That's the third song, "Lazarus."
