MARK'S NOTCAST Ep 42 : "Dead People Can't Say No" : David Bowie's Ouija Board Years 2016-2021. 08 January 2021.
Notcast Episode 42 : It's David Bowie's 74th birthday, so what better way for the Estate Of David Bowie to mark it by releasing a limited edition cream 7" that sold out from his website before they even officially announced it? Here I take a tawdry tour through Augmented Reality Video Game of "Try To Buy Every Limited Edition Posthumous David Bowie Release", the dark world of random coloured vinyl in gold, white, red, and blue (maybe?), the many live albums released in 2017-20, the many 7" demo box sets, the 'demo' box set LP's, the Brilliant Live Adventures "Empty Box" fiasco, and all the other tacky, pointlessly limited, reputation-harming releases. Here's their marketing strategy in five words : "Dead People Can't Say No."
