     I don't know about any David Bowie cover, but it was LASSIGUE
BENDTHAUS (another one of Uwe Schmidt's many many aliases), and the name of
the album is to be "Pop Artificielle".  It's still not out yet, and we've
been waiting forever for it to be released.  Supposedly Uwe is polishing up
the end product right now as we speak so it can be shipped off to the Kk
label.  Here's a bit more info:

     I can't find the other post, but there's also supposed to be a cover
of the PRINCE song, "The Future".

     Myself, I e-mailed Kk Records within the past month or so asking when
its planned release date was and they responded saying that there wasn't
anything set.  We'll see I guess.
