Rubber Band (single):David Bowie

Rubber Band was a single by David Bowie. The single was released in 1966, and marked the start of Bowie’s recording contract with Deram which would include his first album, 1967’s David Bowie.

It was part of the three-track audition tape Bowie’s new manager Kenneth Pitt used to persuade the label to sign him. The track itself shows Bowie’s infatuation at the time with Anthony Newley. Despite some good notices in the music press, the single was a flop, once more failing to break into the UK charts.

The track was later re-recorded for Bowie’s debut album. The B-side, "The London Boys", was belatedly issued as a single in 1975.
