Mr Bowie I presume? Yes, wearing Accident victim chic by Polaroid.  The tail-end of Bowie’s ‘Berlin’ trilogy though actually recorded in Switzerland and New York, Lodger came out in 1979 and marked the final fruits of The Thin White Dukes creative partnership with Brian Eno. After pushing musical boundaries with 1977’s avant pop one-two of Low and Heroes, conceived in the heady atmosphere of Berlins Hansa Studio By The Wall, Lodger is more accessible songwise without sacrificing any of those records experimental inclinations; it plays, it swings, it croons, it jams, it funks in a white London boy reinventing himself once more kind of way….God bless his freaky little cockney cotton socks!
