I am doing a Bowie present in July and would like to carry out Oh! You Fairly Issues. Positively my favourite D.B. track. It’s influenced by Aliester Crowley, Golden Daybreak, and Bowies occult beliefs and practices. I’m extra influenced by conventional witchcraft, and it’s a main a part of my life.

The guide states that these aliens will ultimately emerge from the earth and assist the worlds youth to stand up in opposition to the older human inhabitants and destroy the outdated methods.
I understand that I haven’t got to make the act mirror the literal that means of the track. Even nonetheless I am having a extremely onerous time arising with concepts. I’d very very similar to to include magical symbolism and ritual. I’ve additionally been closely influenced by witchcraft and the occult, and want to keep true to myself in doing this act.
I believed it would assist if I had some folks to brainstorm with. Prior to now I’ve completed a number of burlesque exhibits and give you very intricate act, however this one is de facto tough for some purpose. I’ve included the lyrics if that helps. Because of anybody and everybody who remark!
