David Bowie ‘Tonight’ reviewed by Tom McLaughlin (1984)

Time to break our duck with something a little bit unusual. This is either very unfair or very apt given David Bowie’s recent renaissance. In 1984 he released ‘Tonight‘, his sixteenth studio album to mixed reviews. In this clip from the Dave Fanning RTE2 radio show Tom McLaughlin of Light a Big Fire offers his take on the album.

In other news voting for the inevitable Fanning’s Fab 50 is underway with the event itself taking place on Monday 22nd December and Tuesday 23th from 10pm-1am. Check out Dan Hegarty’s ‘Top 50 Irish Albums Of 2014‘ for some inspiration.

While we’re going off topic, all the best to Mr Terri Hooley who is in hospital at the minute. Get well soon Terri.
