Watching the other day’s Musical Treats with Arcade Fire and Bowie playing together, I couldn’t help but think: Eeeeeeeek. Bowie looks completely synthetic, artificial, broken, Michael Jacksonesque.
A strangely deranged, nose, a broken skin colour, nowhere near as alive and cool as the Arcade Fire. He looks downright scary.
And it makes me sad to say that. He’s the arch-duke of pop after all. And deservedly so. When I saw him play last summer he definitely looked more alive and more cool than on stage with Arcade Fire. Somehow he just seemed tense and uneasy playing there. Like a squirrel or the proverbial pig, in a cage, on antibiotics.
I really like Bowie, honest.

Almost Famous. Great film.
