BRIXTON, BROMLEY, BECKENHAM, BERLIN & BEYOND

A selection of work from the Beatles of the Suth rolled into one that have been up for auction at the premiere auction houses like Christie's and Bonhams. As an unofficial site, I'm trying to make this as useful as possible for a Beatles resource by including as much as I can. For a band with a body of work as iconic as their's his it's quite hard so would really appreciate any help. I want to do all the prices realised in chronological order of date item created.

The pages don't make any money - indeed I have to subsidise them through sales of memorabilia etc.. So I have to find the time around getting money in to do these pages.

I do think it's important to have a catalogue of his prices realised etc.. So if you can help with any details on releases then I will put them here. Any info. on the release, including date and country published, would be very useful. You can e-mail me here ihuppert5@aol.com

Thanks.

ASHES TO ASHES VIDEO SPACESUIT, 1980

David Bowie Ashes To Ashes Spacesuit Used For The Video, 1980

David Bowie
Ashes To Ashes
Spacesuit Used For The Video, 1980
This is, in my opinion, the ultimate Bowie collectable, or at the very least near the top. If I had the money this is something I'd definately want. It's such an important piece not only in Bowie's career but as a symbol of that New Romantic movement which was kind of mobilishing in 1980. Plus the participating of the iconic Steve Strange in the aforementioned video. And the video itself was like an epic mini-movie rarely used in the medium to such effect. A kind of David Lean-esque motion picture for those times; Kubrick in three minutes. A bookend to a decade that began, more or less, with Space Oddity.

The RAF air-ventilated suit Mk. 2A, with maker's label dated 1961 and size details and broad arrow, in nylon, with Velcro fastener to the back of the neck and tape to back at waist, button to each ankle, with a system of PVC tubes in nylon channels overall fanning out from a large inlet tube, accompanied by a statement of provenance.

Provenance:
Fascinating provenance. The suit was originally acquired by musician, Gideon Wagner. In the early 1970s he answered an advert in the Melody Maker placed by Kenneth Pitt, David Bowie's former manager, who was looking for new talent to manage. Over the years Gideon received a number of clothing items via both Kenneth and Bowie, being the same size as Bowie. This was given to Gideon shortly after the filming of the video, having kept in touch with Bowie.

The iconic video, directed by Bowie and David Mallett, was, at the time, the most expensive music video ever made and still remains one of the most expensive of all time. In 1999, MTV placed it at No.58 in their list of '100 Greatest Music Videos'.

This item of flying equipment was made by the G.Q Parachute Company, Woking, England and was commonly known by aircrew as the 'Fairy' suit. Worn under a flying suit, it was designed in the 1950s to help keep the wearer cool within high-temperature cockpits of the RAF jets at the time. One was also worn by Kate Bush in the video for the single 'The Dreaming', released in 1982.
