When Ziggy broke up the band in ’73, the Spiders’ Hull-born axe hero went it alone. Luckily his former employer was still on hand to offer a sprinkling of Stardust: David wrote the delicate, Hunky Dory-ish “Growing Up And I’m Fine”, the lyrics to “Music Is Lethal” (revisiting the glam histrionics of Aladdin Sane’s “Time”) and co-wrote “Hey Ma Get Papa” with Ronson (who, consciously or otherwise, sings after a Ziggy fashion). Fans of Bowie’s ’71-’74 glam period should still find this a beguiling and worthwhile footnote.
