Divided loyalty tonight, with a combination of muddy 2012 Isle of Wight coverage playing against some vintage television clips of Bowie on strange channels where I don't even remember the idents.
Probably a Captain Morgan phenomenon.
Anyhow, for big gigs, a combination of musicianship and showmanship is needed. At least an audience connection. So the Spiders somehow beat the very worthy and drum beating Elbow.
And then a second chance for the Island to shine with its HD 3D format rockers, yet a 4:3 SD with black side bars of Bowie at the BBC Radio theatre trumps.
The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget.
Ja, und dann sind wir Helden, für einen Tag.
Oh, and as for London Calling being used in Olympics promotions, someone should check out the apocalyptic lyrics.
