Unfinished series of the 90´s on the Millennium


Recommended Posts

As we know in the 90's there were lots of theories about a possible doomsday or about more violent crime till Millennium in

Movies, Books, SeriesFrank_Black.jpg and Music :
During this time, the work of the musician David Bowie was born.

It might interest you,

Part one "1. Outside" was published in 1995, a concept album,

subtitled "the Ritual Art-Murder of Baby Grace Blue: A non-linear Gothic Drama Hyper-Cycle

Part two "2. contamination" was no longer published.
The plan was to release five albums to the turn of the millennium.

Here is an excerpt from wiki:

The liner notes feature a short story by Bowie, the Diary of Nathan Adler, which outlines a somewhat dystopian version of the year 1999 in which the government, through its arts commission, had created a new bureau to investigate the phenomenon of Art Crime. In this future, murder and mutilation of bodies had become a new underground art craze. The main character, Nathan Adler, was in the business of deciding what of this was legally acceptable as art and what was, in a word, trash. The album is filled with references to characters and their lives as he investigates the complicated events leading up to the murder of a fourteen-year-old girl. One is meant to assume that Bowie's character, Nathan Adler, works for the British government due to several references to the cities of London and Oxford, but in the liner notes these are revealed to be, at least in some cases, London, Ontario and Oxford, New Jersey, indicating that the entire story may take place in North America—or, indeed, that the distinction between the two places has become blurred and indistinguishable.

Admittedly not an album for everyone but i like it.

I had listen to it several times but eventually drew me into this bizarre world of Nathan Adler...

but like the Millennium series there will be no continuation.

Who knows this album also and want to tell me his vision of the album?

Simon.

I'm not a bit familiar with it, and especially not sure if I would like it or not. If it's music like acid rock or rap, no thank you. I like to hear a melody, and not a lot of yelling and screaming. Don't get me wrong, I like rock, but I draw the line on stuff that is no longer music to my ears.

Do you have anything you can post for us to listen to?

Here are two songs that could not be more different :

"Strangers when we meet"

"Hearts filthy lesson"

was used by the movie "seven" Scary Oo.gif

but there is not only music, it´s like a radioplay in combination with the diary of Nathan Adler.

Hey, thanks for the post. I never was a fan of Bowie. I like some of his music, but not all, and this outside stuff honestly doesn't interest me at all.

I believe he is correct about the merging of evil that is in the world, and music. His own personal expression of his truth. He is correct when he states that Christianity doesn't address sex and violence. They cover it up with pomp and rituals. You can't overcome evil unless you face it, and show no fear.

When I started in banking, a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far, away, while in training, they would have us handle bills long enough that when a counterfeit was put in the stack, we would be able to feel the difference. I truly doubt if they do that anymore. It's the same concept in war, you have to know your enemy to conquer your enemy.

I'll take the album not too serious, for me it´s a kind of art nothing more nothing less laugh.gif

...but agree with you!

The idea to continue it until the turn of the millennium is what i like most, as our beloved series "MillenniuM".

Like I said, not an album for anyone i might have this post in a David Bowie forum but somehow I see in the idea

not in the execution the connection to Millennium.

Interview concept of "Outside"

Press conference 1995

Bowie's music had been around long before the 90's. If you mean this particular work? Cool! I'd never heard of it.

Everyone back then had a take on the Millennium. Hey, Prince the singer got an early start with that Party like it's 1999 song! LOL I never gt that song. Not until 1999! I'm a bit slow.....

Y2K was all on the news, the nutjobs were screaming about the end of the world in more ways than one, Earth changes became a popular topic..... I know so many who were millenniumistic in that they took off out west, or build bunkers etc...

Peter Gabriel did lots across the pond, with the OVO and millennium dome thing... Other artists did too. It seems so long ago, I forget half the craziness. I do know, you couldn't get online without Y2K, pole shift, earth changes, Planet X, etx... hitting you in the head. When I learned Millennium was about the year 2000 coming up, and strange things going on... I wanted to see more. Loved the show. Glad the actual event was a non starter though!
