David Bowie / Marlene Dietrich: "Revolutionary Song b/w Just A Gigolo" for Record Store Day

David Bowie's Revolutionary Song baked by Marlene Dietrich singing Just A Gigolo will be released on a split 7" for Record Store Day.

After legendary English musician David Bowie started his movie career by playing the lead in The Man Who Fell to Earth(1976) he was starring in Just a Gigolo Bowie contributed a piece of music to the film; his so-called "Revolutionary Song", played by a band called The Rebels. Later it became a collector's item. Besides this track the 7-inch include the 1928 title song Just a Gigolo, performed by Marlene Dietrich. It was her last film appearance and last song she recorded during her lifetime.

Limited to 10,000 (other sources mention 8,000) numbered copies on blue vinyl.

Wardrobe: Giving Up a Ghost

Wardrobe started out as one-man project by Flemish musician Johan Verckist, but now is has turned into a full band. With the new Giving Up a Ghost album they travel to the outskirts of electro-pop, where anything might happen - provided it is catchy and melancholic. Most of the songs deal with heartbreak and loss (Distance, Back Doubles), although Verckist doesn't shun opinion. Exhibit A: the album's opener Armchair Critic.

He is not taking it lying down. In the defiant Off the Reel the band turns it up a notch with an abrasive Pixies-alike guitar and bass tandem. After all is said done it becomes apparent that a Hollywood ending isn't in the cards. All is not lost just yet. The album ends with a superb, slowed down cover of Come Back and Stay.
