homage to the king of reinvention
One of the many faces of David Bowie

'We Were So Turned On': A Tribute To David Bowie, is a project which began in early 2008 is now set to see the light of day. The album which will be a benefit for charity War Child- one that Bowie himself supports, will be a homage to Bowie by an eclectic array of artists, a musical reinvention of the man who invented the art of reinvention itself.

The record sees contributions from Devendra Banhart (Megapuss), Vivian Girls, Carla Bruni, A Place To Bury Strangers, Duran Duran, ex-Slits Viv Albertine and legendary avant-garde bassist/musician Mick Karn. With Warpaint, Chairlift and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros coming on board later on.
