nichobert Holy guacamole, the Bowie from this show isn't even ON the Bowie Jamming Chart? A short version to be fair, and from a well-enough regarded show (due to the Bionic Llama) so I assume that it was intentionally left off due to personal taste, but wow!

The Bowie from this show is extremely well put together with the band weaving in and out of several different thematic segments that all generally point in one direction despite a wide variety of backdrops. It's kind of like when you see that Frodo Skywalker character flee his village. You know this has happened before and it will happen again, and you have a general idea of what kind of a trilling conclusion it will come to, but the beauty is in the set-pieces in between.

Top 10 Bowie? Nope. Not even a top 10 Bowie for the year. It's an excellent slab of darkly cohesive improvisation which has apparently flown under the radar though, and every once in awhile I like to pop up and wave these slabs around on a stick.
