Simon Price, who unlike Tim Jonze knows his stuff, reviews David Bowie, live at Milton Keynes Bowl on The Sound & Vision Tour, Melody Maker 11th August, 1990. And very good it is too.

Much to enjoy on this page actually. A nascent Blur at The Dome, which I should probably remind any younger readers does NOT mean The O2 Dome, are applauded for “their total destructive abandon” and “the singer – Randell or whatever his name is” is singled out as having “definite star potential…but if they don’t write some tunes with a different harmony for a change they’ll only be remembered for this – he falls over well.” Hahaha!

Paris Angels, who did indeed pen “divinely heady single Perfume”, reviewed on this page too. Everyone has heard Perfume by the Paris Angels yes? Then please do so now. Wonder if they still play this at Camden Palace…er…I mean, Koko. They should.

And if that’s you at the Snuff gig, caught by the camera, about to get up for yet another stage dive then please say hello and let us know which bank or insurance company you work for now.

Simon Reynolds reviews On Fire by Galaxie 500, 28th October 1989.

If there’s a more underrated band than Galaxie 500 then I want to hear about them.

Cos I’m a bit drunk and because this is the official soundtrack to this blog I paid WordPress for the mp3 feature. If just one of you hears this for the first time it’ll be worth it. Enjoy and go buy the Galaxie 500 box set on Rykodisc.

If this doesn’t make you cry then you’re already dead.
