This is a bootleg release of some of the material which David Bowie intended to use in his 1.Outside album of 1995. Most of the tracks, however, were rejected by the recording labels as too uncommercial. They were indeed too weird by all means to make their way to pop-charts - and that is exactly why I think that the compilation of rejected
tracks would be worth sharing here. In a nutshell, the Outtakes are about 40 minutes of rather adventurous cyber-punkish avant/psych improvisations intermingled with chants, recitations and few more or less conventional rock-style sung pieces. Although this effort does not fall straight into the category of progressive rock, I believe that some friends of PNF will appreciate it.
Citing Illustrated DB Discography: "On March 12 1994, David Bowie, Brian Eno, Reeves Gabrels, Mike Garson, Erdal Kizilcay and Sterling Cambell improvised a three-and-a-half-hour opus at the Mountain Studios in Montreux. This work formed the basis for the album 1.Outside. The recordings were mixed at Westside Studios, London in the summer of 1994 and were intended for release as a double-album. Reeves Gabrels wrote on his website: "We hoped that it would have come out intact and un-compromised by financial/commercial pressures. It would have been a very serious musical statement (and maybe even pissed more people off than Tin Machine)". However, Bowie was unable to interest any record label to release 1. Outside in its original form because it was considered too uncommercial. Somehow 70 minutes from these mixed recordings have escaped. The CD features tracks that can hardly be called songs, as they do not follow conventional arrangements with verses and choruses. They are more like sketches, often with changes in tempo and structure within a single track. Although only a few tracks ('I Am With Name' and 'Leon Takes Us Outside') ended up on 1.Outside, the story line set out throughout these tracks forms the backbone of the album".
