Bowie, David: Buddha of Suburbia LP

Availability: In stock

Asked to write and perform the music for the BBC2 mini series The Buddha of Suburbia, although classified as a soundtrack, only the title track on the 1983 album was featured in the program itself. The television adaptation of 1990 book, written by Hanif Kureishi, The Buddha of Suburbia is a (semi)autobiographical tale featuring Karim - a South London teenager desperate to escape the suburbs which confine him. Kureishi at the time was already well known for his screenplay of My Beautiful Launderette, the 1985 film which centered on issues of sexuality, race and class in volatile 1980's Britain.
