Tosh and Kimley discuss “David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs” by Glenn Hendler from the 33 1/3 series. “Diamond Dogs” is frequently considered one of Bowie’s best albums by critics and fans alike. It’s an album that was stitched together from the detritus of a failed “1984” project and his reading of William Burroughs’ “Wild Boys” which impelled Bowie to use the cut-up technique in his lyric writing. Bowie’s cryptic lyrics are ripe for the kind of OCD examination that the 33 1/3 series allows. And given our current virus-laden era of social distancing and big brother-like policies emanating from the powers that be worldwide, this feels like an album for our time.
