Attention Bowie fans: Here’s a chance to win some vinyl and a copy of the movie Stardust

If you’re a true Bowie fan, there’s no such thing as too much Bowie. You want to learn everything about the guy, including his origins.

Stardust, starring Johnny Flynn and Mark Maron, takes a look at Bowie’s fruitless efforts to break into the US between “Space Oddity” and the release of the Ziggy Stardust album. Looking back, it’s hard to believe that Bowie was once happy to get gigs playing folk songs to vacuum cleaner salespeople as he plugged The Man Who Sold the World. Marc Maron does a great job of portraying Bowie’s only fan at his American record company.

For a chance to win a copy of Ziggy Stardust on vinyl and a fully-owned copy of the movie, just tweet “I want Bowie vinyl” with the hashtag #StardustMovie. We’ll have a winner by the end of the week after a random drawing.
