New Release: The Sacred Triangle Bowie, Iggy & Lou 1971-1973 DVD

On Nov. 23, 2010, MVD Entertainment Group release the DVD of The Sacred Triangle: Bowie, Iggy & Lou 1971- 1973 , a feature-length documentary on the unique and creative early 1970s relationship between musicians David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Lou Reed. The DVD carries a suggested retail price of $19.95.

By the second half of 1971, David Bowie was justifiably being branded a one-hit-wonder, Lou Reed was considered washed-up following a disastrous solo debut and Iggy Pop was seen as merely a drug crazed ex-Stooge, the band having split the year before for reasons linked to his deepening habit. But a meeting of minds at the New York venue ‘Max’s Kansas City‘ in that year’s closing months was the catalyst for an extraordinary turnaround of fortunes for these three musical geniuses, resulting in the most dramatic shift in musical style since the dawn of the rock age, 15 years before.

The Sacred Triangle investigates the era in which these creative personalities worked most closely together. It includes exclusive contributions from David’s ex-wife Angie Bowie, Andy Warhol’s Factory assistant Billy Name, MainMan Management vice president, Lee Black Childers, New York scenester Jayne [née Wayne] County and many others from the era.

We think fans will particularly dig the documentary’s rare and classic film footage, along with a slew of recently discovered archive photographs.
