David Bowie and Iggy Pop the Berlin Trilogy

EddieVinyl Records

The year of our lord 1976 found our heroes David Bowie and Iggy Pop in rough shape.  Iggy Pop (aka James Newell Osterburg Jr.) who, only a few short years before, was the toast of the New York underground along with his fellow stooges; was now left friendless in the pissy gutters of New York City.  That is, except for one friend.  That friend was David Bowie (aka David Robert Jones). Bowie himself had recently hit a bottom of his own, barely remembering the tracking of last year’s “Station to Station” due to an astronomical cocaine habit.  He was also cited as making remarks while stoned, in favor of the other “f” word, fascism. In light of all this tragedy, David Bowie grabbed his friend Iggy Pop out of the gutter, and took him to Berlin.
