On the second part of our five part series “Better Know A Preature”, the axe-man/vocalist of the ARIA-nominated GQ Band of the Year The Preatures, Gideon Bensen, rolls out of the tour bus and joins host Jeremy Dylan for a chat about Lou Reed’s classic Bowie/Ronson produced 1974 LP “Transformer”.
They break down classic tracks “Satellite of Love”, “Walk on the Wild Side” and “Perfect Day” and along the way talk about Gideon’s experiences in New York and how it compares to Reed’s NY, David Bowie’s production of the album and his dynamic backing vocals, Reed’s chilled vocal style and the real reason Gideon has started dressing like Lou on stage.
