In 1989, Rykodisc, a tiny independent record label located on Pickering Wharf in Salem, Massachusetts, was hand-picked by David Bowie to curate his amazing body of work spanning 1969-1980, including classics like Space Oddity, Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust, Young Americans, Low, Heroes, and Scary Monsters.
What followed then set a new standard for audio-visual presentation, re-affirmed David Bowie’s genius for a new generation and helped him rediscover his creative powers. One man behind the scenes in this amazing story was Jeff Rougvie, Rykodisc’s VP of Special Projects, who worked directly with Bowie on nearly 20 releases over 10 years.
During this special live event Rougvie will discuss the magic of Bowie, using visuals, unseen material, accompanied by Boston’s own Daily Pravda, who will perform live versions of some of Bowie’s most memorable songs, followed by a Q&A session.
About The Daily Pravda
As is the case with most bands, The Daily Pravda formed through a wanted ad. In early 2005 singer David Jackel posted on Boston music forums in search of “a guitarist to help do to Ziggy Stardust what Oasis did to the Beatles.” Adam Anderson joined on several weeks later, and the new band played an acoustic set at Felt night club in downtown Boston as an unannounced warm-up act for singer-songwriter Howie Day.
While The Daily Pravda’s direction has long since moved beyond the initial wanted ad’s goal of a glam rock revival, the group continues to find inspiration in Bowie’s prolific career and constant reinvention, the pop sensibilities of the artists who followed in his footsteps, and a healthy disregard for authenticity.
The Daily Pravda are:
Adam Anderson: lead guitar
David Jackel: vocals, guitar
Mike Gonzales: bass guitar
Ken Marcou: drums
Tom Roppelt: everything else
