Earl Slick - Zig Zag (2003)

An excellent solo record of tight, punchy art rock by Earl Slick. Features a bunch of different vocalists -- most notably, Robert Smith and David Bowie, for whom Slick played guitar on and off dating back to the Diamond Dogs tour. "Isn't It Evening (The Revolutionary)" is pretty much a lost Bowie song. Sorry once again for hardly being on here anymore, but believe it or not, the dude running an mp3 blog in 2019 doesn't exactly have his shit together.

Track listing:
1. Dancing with Eleanor
2. Believe
3. Isn't It Evening (The Revolutionary)
4. 1735
5. Zig Zag
6. Pike St.
7. Crunched
8. St. Mark's Place
9. Psycho Twang
10. The Cat

I forget if it's always this way
I was told it was gold to this day

  12. Always fascinated by the variety of your blog, so much love and support. 2019 appears to be the year that many of us are struggling to keep our shit together. Thanks for everything.

  13. When they recently Showed Bowies Glastonbury performance in its entirety, Slick was there doing his stuff, still rate Station to Station as the thin white dukes best. This made me realise how lucky I was to see Earl as Glenn Matlocks guitar man in a sweaty 200 person venue in Winchester. Close enough to see the genius at work, living proof of speed (no drug references intended) does not mater. Heaven!
    Love the blog and the wide ranging styles.....any chance of going flac?
