Strung Out In Heaven: A Bowie String Quartet Tribute
'Strung Out In Heaven: A Bowie String Quartet Tribute' is a digital EP, conceived and created by Amanda Palmer and Jherek Bischoff within the space of just two weeks, an admirable achievement under any circumstances. Tracks include 'Space Oddity', 'Heroes', 'Life on Mars', a gripping 'Ashes to Ashes' and a particularly fearless 'Blackstar', featuring Anna Calvi on vocals and guitar. Until March 5th, the bulk of the the proceeds from the EP's sales will go to the cancer research wing of Tufts Medical Centre in Boston, Massachusetts.
