V-2 Schneider

Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. "V-2 Schneider" is a largely instrumental piece written by David Bowie in 1977 for the album "Heroes." It was a tribute to Florian Schneider, co-founder of the band Kraftwerk, whom Bowie acknowledged as a significant influence at the time. The title also referenced the V-2 rocket.The only words sung are those in the title, initially distorted by phasing. Musically, the track is unusual for the off-beat saxophone work by Bowie, who kicked off his part on the wrong note, but continued regardless. According to biographer David Buckley, "One can almost see the Nazis parading past the control room of the Hansa Studios as the music - insistent, militaristic - tumbles out of the speakers."
