David Bowie – “Ashes To Ashes”

Showtime has released a trailer for their recently released documentary, Finding Fame, which sees David Bowie reflecting on the early days of his career. The trailer comes packed with clips of Bowie in mime makeup from 1967’s The Mask, playing with an acoustic guitar, and posing for photographs. “I’ve always been a very curious and enthusiastic person,” Bowie says in the clip. “I’ve just had to accept that I was a person that had a very short attention spand and would move from one thing to another quite rapidly and then I got bored with the other.”
 

Beastie Boys – “No Sleep Till Brooklyn”

In March, Beastie Boys members Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D” Diamond featured in the documentary dedicated to the 25th anniversary of their album Ill Communication. The band also released new versions of their albums To the 5 Boroughs and Paul’s Boutique, and now they are releasing vinyl reissues of all three of these albums.
