bought in on Amazon Instant Video as sadly it hasn’t been released theatrically in the San Diego area and despite my love for all things Gilliam on a big screen I don’t want to drive up to LA.
to quote the Boomtown Rats “I don’t like Mondays”
off to dreamland with the most hauntingly beautiful song on the new album

"The dance floor is a dizzy kaleidoscope of lamè hotpants, sequined halters, rhinestone-studded cheeks, thrift-store anythings and see-through everythings."

Rodney Bingenheimer in front of the legendary Riot Hyatt on Sunset“Alone in LA, Rodney seemed like an island of English nowness. He even knew British singles and bands that I wasn’t aware of. Rodney singlehandedly cut a path through the treacle of the Sixties, allowing all us avants to parade our sounds of tomorrow dressed in our clothes of derision.” ~ David Bowie
