Diamond Dogs is the eighth studio album by the English musician David Bowie, released on 24 May 1974 by RCA Records. Thematically, it was a marriage of the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell and Bowie's own glam-tinged vision of a post-apocalyptic world. Bowie had wanted to make a theatrical production of Orwell's book and began writing material after completing sessions for his 1973 album Pin Ups, but the author's estate denied the rights.

So Diamond Dogs had to became another kind of creature. Bowie, since he was a teenager, was fascinated about the malformations that appeared on Strange People novel. So he put some references to malformed people in the album. David himself decided to be the one who would play all the instruments, except drums (Aynsley Dunbar), bass (Herbie Flowers) and keyboards (Mike Garson). This is what he said in an interview with NYRock: That was the first time that I played all the instruments myself on an album. I had just broken up the Spiders and didn’t really want to entrust my music to another set.

David Bowie described Diamond Dogs as his most political work and his protest, so it stood to reason that the last thing he was concerned about regarding his image and sound at that point was making people comfortable. With this album, he succeeded in his quest to both entertain and provoke. The first track on the album, Future Legend, was a spoken word introduction that vividly described an unsettling vision of modern decay. Bowie wrote, arranged, produced and performed most of Diamond Dogs himself. He also played his own lead guitar for the first time, contributing to the album’s signature, almost grunge-y sound. At the time, Bowie described the album as more me than anything I’ve done previously. Diamond Dogs remains a remarkably complete-feeling album, as well as a fascinating, intoxicating peek inside David Bowie’s head and fitting tribute to the Orwell classic.

Sweet Thing (Reprise)" – 2:31.

Diamond Dogs suffers precisely because of this - he doesn't know how to move forward. Originally conceived as a concept album based on George Orwell's 1984, Diamond Dogs evolved into another one of Bowie's paranoid future nightmares. Throughout the album, there are hints that he's tired of the Ziggy formula, particularly in the disco underpinning of "Candidate" and his cut-and-paste lyrics. However, it's not enough to make Diamond Dogs a step forward, and without Mick Ronson to lead the band, the rockers are too stiff to make an impact

Touring Diamond Dogs across America afterwards, it felt like those new songs were anarchic, all about tearing things down. It was prophetic in many ways. And the music was so loud and angry. The album cover was a painting of Bowie as half man, half dog. His back half was the dog, and he was very clearly a male dog, which prompted RCA Records to airbrush the painting and make the dog gender neutral. More songs from David Bowie. More songs with jewelry or precious stones in the title. More songs with dogs in the title. More songs from 1974. Lyrics to Diamond Dogs. David Bowie Artistfacts.

David Bowie's third consecutive UK chart-topper and . Top 5 breakthrough, 1974’s Diamond Dogs is a bummer, a bad trip, "No Fun"–a sustained work of decadence and dread that transforms corrosion into celebration. sci-fi fantasy, and bespangled spectacle. His bleakest album until recent swansong Blackstar, Diamond Dogs is a bummer, a bad trip, "No Fun"-a sustained work of decadence and dread that transforms corrosion into celebration. Whereas Ziggy features its titular messiah, Diamond Dogs has jackals that live on corpses the way Bowie fed off rotting urban culture and reckless rock'n'roll. The last glam gasp of Bowie's English years, Dogs also sprawls toward Bowie’s forthcoming Thin White Duke persona, embracing Blaxploitation funk and soul, rock opera, European art song, and.
