BOWIE INTERVIEW

David Bowie in DER SPIEGEL TRIKONT
 

SPIEGEL: How come you´re pushing other musicians careers and present almost unknown artists at the Meltdown festival in London under the motto "Outside Music"?

Bowie: I`m fascinated by many of the artists who perform there - especially because the regular Rock´n´Roll audience could hardly bear watching them. For example a guy called Daniel Johnston, who is a folk legend within certain circles, and who had severe psychological problems. Since the beginning of the 80ies he´s been writing beautiful songs with very touching lyrics. He recorded his songs at his parents house and his guitar and piano playing was rather bad. Afterwards he went to a shop and bartered his tapes for comics. That's how his recordings started circulating and he got a bit famous in Austin/Texas. He´s still living with his parents now.

SPIEGEL: Why are you so interested in this type of hopeless outsider?

Bowie: I hate mainstream. Its mediocrity and calculability make me sick. A man like Daniel Johnston records just for himself. It´s this almost primitive integrity which makes his work so unique and authentic. It reminds me of aspects that made me love art in the first place.
