The album was recorded in Berlin at the Hansa Studios right next to the Berlin Wall and together with Low and Lodger forms the Berlin trilogy, for many, and Trendenz also, the best in Bowie’s career, along with Scary Monsters which would be recored years later but still retains the Berlin influences and the Kraftwerk influenced electronic sound. 35 five years later “Heroes”, “Neukoln”, “The Secret life of Arabia” or “Sense of doubt” remain timeless masterpieces and a bring us back to the cold war days of West Berlin, an isolated city at the time but whose isolation has contributed to a brilliant set of songs like these. Aside from the musical genius, thanks to a great extent to the influence of Brian Eno, Heroes is thus both a musical and historical document
The wild Spanish designer Davidelfin has created a special Doc Martens model in wood pattern, both shoes and boots. This designer is apparently very fond of this brand: in October he had his models wearing white Docs on the catwalk at the Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week where he showed his Summer collection “Katharsis”. Should you wish to buy these special wood patterned Docs, please refer to Davidelfin’s site http://www.davidelfin.com/ where you can also buy items from his predominantly blue and yellow Winter collection, and pre-orde items from the colourful Summer Collection.
