The 5 O’clock Shadow: Tuesday December 28, 2021
The original singer had a very close friendship with David Bowie. They wrote this song together with Ricky Gardiner while they were in self-imposed exile together in Berlin. Bowie sings back-up vocals on the original version.
If the original artist was “The Godfather of Punk” The Shadow artist was its fairy godmother. She was unique, set punk fashion trends, and had a huge influence on the likes of PJ Harvey, The Slits, Santigold, Thom Yorke and Win Butler.
The Shadow version was featured in the 2017 movie I, Tonya.
