David Bowie - TVC15 b/w We Are The Dead (1976) - single

"TVC 15" is a song written and recorded by David Bowie released in 1976.
The track was inspired by an episode in which Iggy Pop, during a drug-fuelled period at Bowie’s LA home, hallucinated and believed the television set was swallowing his girlfriend. Bowie developed a story of a holographic television, “TVC 15”. In the song, the narrator's girlfriend crawls into the television and afterwards, the narrator desires to crawl in himself to find her. The song is considerably more upbeat than the rest of the album on which it was released, “Station to Station”. It was chosen as the second single from the album in the UK, where it reached No. 33. With Bowie unable to perform on the show, Top of the Pops promoted the single with a bizarre interpretation from resident dance troupe Ruby Flipper. The B-side, "We Are the Dead", originally formed part of Bowie’s attempt to adapt Nineteen Eighty-Four, and had previously been released on the “Diamond Dogs” album.
