Will do a bit of research and might even go to this!...
I didn't notice Chris Carter’s name on the poster before. Chris Carter from Throbbing Gristle, Chris & Cosey, Carter Tutti and solo.

We Are KING - "Space Oddity"
I like it...ethereal, stripped back/laid back...but can't help thinking it could have been so much more...Still good though.
It all looks a bit edgy and tense

A Tourist quickie fun edit...Original photograph by Kevin Cummins.
I've cropped-in this original Kevin Cummins photograph of Bowie (NYC) 1997 and given it a bit more of an old-school 'Agfa film look'...I think it takes away something of the overall context of that shot, but makes it more focused as a Bowie street-portrait.

DAVID BOWIE - 'METROBOLIST’ (AKA ‘THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD') 50th ANNIVERSARY EDITION
REMIXED BY TONY VISCONTI WITH ARTWORK BASED ON ORIGINAL TITLE & DESIGN
RELEASED 6th NOVEMBER, 2020 ON LIMITED VINYL AND CD FORMATS, ALSO FOR STREAMING AND DOWNLOAD AT STANDARD AND HIGH RESOLUTION DOWNLOAD (96kHz/24bit)
Parlophone Records is proud to announce release details for METROBOLIST (aka THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD) 50th ANNIVERSARY EDITION to be released on 6th NOVEMBER, 2020.
This November sees the 50th Anniversary of the release of David Bowie’s The Man Who Sold The World in North America. The rest of the world would have to wait until April 1971 to witness Bowie’s landmark entry into the 1970s, marking the beginning of a collaboration with guitarist Mick Ronson that would last through classic works including Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane—as well as the first in a 10-year series of indispensable albums stretching through 1980’s Scary Monsters…
Originally titled Metrobolist, the album's name was changed at the last minute to The Man Who Sold The World -- the original stereo master tapes were in fact labelled Metrobolist, with the title ultimately crossed out. The 2020 re-release of the album under its Metrobolist moniker has been remixed by original producer Tony Visconti, with the exception of the track ‘After All’ which Tony considered perfect as is, and is featured in its 2015 remaster incarnation.
The Metrobolist 50th anniversary artwork has been created by Mike Weller who was behind the originally intended album artwork which Mercury refused to release. The gatefold sleeve also features many images from the infamous Keith MacMillan Mr Fish ‘dress’ shoot at Haddon Hall which would cause so much controversy when one of the shots was used on the cover of the The Man Who Sold The World album in the rest of the world in spring of 1971.
The original U.S. release of The Man Who Sold The World utilised some of the original Metrobolist design elements.
As with the Space Oddity 50th anniversary vinyl, as well as a 180g black vinyl edition, it will come in 2020 limited edition handwritten numbered copies on gold vinyl (# 1971 - 2020) and on white vinyl (# 1 - 1970) all randomly distributed.
For the 50th anniversary the 1970 story of the gatefold sleeve can be told in full with unused ‘dress’ photos. As Mike Weller explains:
“There is a story concealed in the carpet-scattered playing cards, David has thrown a plain 52 card deck in the air as though “casting the runes” but in a significant break from 60s Tarot divinations such as I Ching etc he casts runes using a four-suit pack and switches man-dress, along with the Court Card of the Future from right hand to left, signifying a new decade and new cultural era.”
David personally delivered the Metrobolist concept and his gatefold plan to the record company for production and now with this release, it can finally be seen much closer to its original concept. Bowie speaking in 2000 said of the sleeve imagery:
"Mick Weller devised this kind of very subversive looking cartoon and put in some quite personalised things. The building in the background on the cartoon in fact was the hospital where my half brother had committed himself to. So for me, it had lots of personal resonance about it.”

A Butcher Billy artwork montage...Pretty clever stuff.
Aren't dreams the most crazy, wonderful thing...as long as they're nice ones, ofc.
You can literally go anywhere.
It's strange you mention this, as I had a Bowie dream the other night, where we had met, after one of his shows I think (can't remember that...shame), and were talking about music in general and guitar, and stuff, and out of the blue, he asked me if I would like to be his personal assistant on this tour, starting as of then!..So, obviously I said yes and off we went, as if two long lost friends reunited..I remember him doing a TV interview re the tour and the album release it was promoting and he asked me to sit nearby, as he introduced me as his PA...But there you go, strange dream, but a good un!
Talking about the Butcher Billy artwork, I really like his style and uniqueness and the way he gets a uniformity through an entire project/multiple pieces of work and still every piece retains it's individuality....
The Warszawa one is particularly clever, imo. Now I'm a massive fan of both Bowie, and Joy Division, so for him (Butcher Billy) to reference Joy Division/Ian Curtis in this piece of art, works really well..The song, obviously Warsawa (Low) and the fact that Joy Division were originally called Warsaw, a direct reference to Bowie's Warszawa song, which they liked so much, makes a perfect marriage for the design. A bleak, haunting atmosphere running through this Bowie song and through Joy Division. One or two may miss this reference/connection, but the Unknown Pleasures graphic behind the Bowie/Curtis artwork, pretty much gives it away...Great stuff!..😎
Butcher Billy has a knack for capturing likenesses and placing those in various contexts with a sense of humour and accuracy.
Thrilling dream you had. Yes, when such vivid dreams like that occur, I wake up wondering if the other person with whom I interacted with might’ve dreamt something similar. Maybe we’d met on the astral plane.
It’s happened a couple of times where someone has told me about a dream they’ve had where I’ve featured and it corresponded somewhat to a dream I’ve also had. There’s something to all of that, I should think, certainly.
I think you're probably right..
