Album Notes

The cat survived, no thanks to this compilation. Poor sales and limited promotion have left CDBaby with a glut of discs and no prospects. They want to recycle the entire supply. Between now and then, the Pet-Owner Rescue Foundation of Chicago is offering the disc at a radical discount. The current list price is the lowest we can go before CDBaby starts charging us to sell the album.

These are the final five copies of this release. Whether they sell or are destroyed, no more will be made. Purchase your copy today or forever miss out.


Benefit for Bowie is a compilation of deep underground Chicago artists who support the lives of people with pets. The album ranges in styles from soulful house to math-core to progressive metal to plaintive gospel. These unsigned artists contribute to the thriving underground Chicago music scene, helping to keep alive the city's legacy of an innovative music community. Because they believe in the work of the Pet-Owner Rescue Foundation of Chicago, they have donated their tracks so that we can better support pet owners.


Initial proceeds from the sale of Benefit for Bowie went to saving the life of a cat named Bowie. Bowie was a very ill cat. He suffered from Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD) and pyelonephritis, a cat disease that is fatal if not treated quickly. His treatment was very expensive, more than most people spend on themselves for healthcare. His owner could not afford to pay for doctor visits and medication. The Pet-Owner Rescue Foundation of Chicago provided funds to assist in these costs. To help defray these costs, we released this Benefit for Bowie. Although the original purpose of this compliation was achieved, many more pets are in need of financial assistance. Profits go to helping these pets and their owners in need.


The music on this album is a microsection of Chicago's music scene. The artists presented here vary greatly in style and approach, but all are enthusiastic about music. Furthermore, they all believe in the cause of the Pet-Owner Rescue Foundation of Chicago. None of these are David Bowie songs, nor do they sound like David Bowie. In fact, if you are a keen David Bowie fan, you probably won't like this music. However, you might be willing to give it a listen. We think you should.


The Pet-Owner Rescue Foundation of Chicago is a loose-knit not-for-profit organization of artists united in a common cause: to help pet owners keep their pets. We believe that people need companionship in their lives, and that for many people the best form of companionship is a pet. The Pet-Owner Rescue Foundation of Chicago tries to connect people and pets, and keep them connected for as long as possible. Our mission includes aiding in pet travel, pet daycare, pet healthcare, and even posthumous pet maintenance. We believe that a person and her pet should never be separated, and we do all we can to assure they are not.


However, the Pet-Owner Rescue Foundation of Chicago cannot serve its purpose without contributions from people like you. Proceeds from the sale of this CD go to help pet owners raise, protect, and care for their pets in life and in death. We cannot perform our mission without your support, so please, buy a CD. We are confident you will find something you like.

Thank you for saving this cat.

One word....Outstanding
this album beatifully shows the rich underside of the chicago subculture. In an industry rule by bubblegum pop, these artists stand up in one unified voice and say "NAY!" This is a raw and truthful depiction of what music can be if you let go of your outer inhibitions and feel the underlying sensation.
