40 Year Itch : A Breakage Inside

Iggy Pop : Sister Midnight

   In February of 1976, between the orgies, the long cross country car rides and the Isolar tour performances, David Bowie offered Iggy Pop a new song he had written with his guitarist Carlos Alomar. "Sister Midnight", which Bowie performed at some of the early dates, sounds like a lost track from the Station to Station album. The definitive version, recorded under Bowie's watchful eyes and ears at Chateau d'Herouville in June of '76 , kicks off 1977's The Idiot, Pop's comeback album. Its spiky sound would inspire Bowie's own Berlin trilogy.
