Calling all you Bowie fans! We’ve got a real treat for you here. Working hard once again, we’ve been super busy designing some amazing new Bowie Tees for all you fans out there to snap up and we’ve come up with a real cracker featuring the place that helped to make Bowie just who he is…The Marquee Club. .
The Marquee Club is a real legend of the streets of London and has seen a whole host of the biggest names and bands ever to take to the stage. Often defined as “the most important venue in the history of modern pop music”, this venue is just about as cool as they come and has seen more styles and genres develop that almost any other.
This iconic stage was first opened back on April the 19th 1958 at 165 Oxford Street, London (now at 90 Wardour Street, Soho). Since then is has seen the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Who, Status Quo, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Pink Floyd, Joy Division, The Clash, The Cure, The Police, Siouxsie and the Banshees, the Sex Pistols and of course… David Bowie!
Starting his music career at a young age in a number of local bands, Bowie soon launched a solo career which was through The Marquee club’s very own label ‘Marquee Artists’. David Bowie became a bit of a regular name with The Lower Third and The Buzz and also took up a residency there.
After his launch of ‘Hunky Dory’ back on the 3rd of February 1970 which featured “Changes” and “Life On Mars?”, Bowie simply became too big for the limited capacity of the Marquee Club. It was this last legendary gig that had inspired out latest exclusive David Bowie T-Shirts!
Take a peep…
If you’re looking for a fantastic way to show your love for one of the most iconic artists in music ever AND the legendary club that helped to launch him, these latest designs are the just what you’re looking for!
New year is all about looking ahead and thinking what the next year could possibly have in store for us, be it in our personal lives or maybe just what amazing new music, movies and TV shows will change our lives and have us thinking….how did we live before this?!? What did we listen to or watch??
Just for a cheeky change and to add some extra little reminder that you now need to write 2014 and not 2013 on everything (it can take us a wee while) we thought we would take a look back at what we were loving a massive 20 years ago now and perhaps scare ourselves a little at how not long ago that really feels!
Yep this year, if you haven’t already realised, all the albums that were released back in 1994 will be turning a milestone 20 years old!! Can you believe it?! It was a truly great time for music with so many bands we still love now first hitting the scene and of course some others we’d much rather forget.
With an almost disbelief and slight feeling of our age now, we thought we would take a quick look back to remind ourselves what was hot back then and what classics have been with us for two decades now (sorry). Enjoy!
Weezer – Weezer (Blue Album)
Their debut studio album which included some songs you might remember such as “Undone – The Sweater Song”, “Buddy Holly”, and “Say It Ain’t So”, this amazing album really launched them into big mainstream success but sadly only reach the number 23 spot in the UK charts. For shame!
Green Day – Dookie
Featuring pop punk classic “When I Come Around”, “Basket Case” and “Welcome to Paradise”, this was the third album from punk rock giants Green Day. As of 2013, Dookie is named the band’s best-selling album, with more than 20 million copies sold worldwide and has picked up wards such as a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 1995. Not bad huh!
Pink Floyd – The Division Bell
Reaching the number one spot in the the UK and USA, this fourteenth and final studio album from prog rockers Pink Floyd also sparked their tour which took them right up to late October. Key tracks included “High Hopes” / “Keep Talking” and “Take it Back”. Even if you didn’t know the album, you’ll certainly know the cover!
Beastie Boys – Ill Communication
Their fourth album to hit the scene, it was their second #1 album on the Billboard charts thanks largely to their amazing hit we all know “Sabotage” – the one with the amazing 70s cops style video. Classic huh! As well as another of our faves “Get It Together”.
Pavement – Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain
Ranked at number ten in Rolling Stone Magazine’s best albums of the nineties, this second studio album reached an impressive number 15 in the UK charts and saw the band find a more classic rock sound and style. Key singles included “Haunt You Down”, “Cut Your Hair” and “Gold Soundz”. As always, it’s packed with great lyrics and melodies. Very cool!
Oasis – Definitely Maybe
That’s right folks! Yep the band’s debut album was released back in August 1994! How old do you feel now? 🙂 Shooting straight to the number one UK spot, at the time it was the fastest felling debut album ever and launched them into amazing new heights selling more than 15 million copies worldwide. Possibly one of the defining albums of the 90s, it’s certainly one of our faves!
Blur – Park Life
The third studio album by the English alternative rock band, Parklife returned Blur to prominence in the UK. This is a real cult album and has come to define the Britpop movement in the 90s and influences in music can still be heard today. If you were cool in the 90s, you had this album!
Portishead – Dummy
This debut album from Bristol based group hit the charts taking an impressive number 2 spot in the UK and also went on to win the 1995 Mercury Music Prize! Dummy helped to cement the reputation of Bristol as the capital of trip hop, a nascent genre which was then often referred to simply as “the Bristol sound”
Soundgarden – Superunknown
Widely considered the bands breakthrough album, their fourth record sold an amazing 310,000 copies in its opening week and reached high positions on charts worldwide. Picking up Grammy awards along the way, this launched them into mainstream success and still remains their most successful album ever.
