Far beyond the pale horizon

This week I have mostly been listening to Virginia Plain by Roxy Music. if you don't know it, or it's a long time since you heard it, it's well worth a listen. So much in there, in a way that is hard to define. Awesome.

The first link above is to the classic Top of the Pops performance of the song. Here are two spoofs of that exact sequence:

From Vic and Bob. Puerile, kind of ugly, and yet funny. Brian Eno is played by Johnny Vegas (duh - thanks ninebelow).

From Big Train. Grown up, complex. I've come back and edited this, because at first I wrote 'not funny'; now I think it is, but it continues past being a straightforward joke. Brian Eno is played by Mark Heep, looking thin and fabulous (he only appears for a second, a couple of times). Also check out Simon Pegg on guitar. Wow.

  • Phew what a scorcher

    I see Gove has backed down on climate change and it's back in the curriculum again.
