After publishing a rant about 'idiots' - frantically hip, ignorant scenesters - Dan Ashcroft finds these same people embracing him as his idol and his nerves constantly tested by his biggest fan, moronic scene personality Nathan Barley.
This is an interesting little video, but I'll be honest, it's not really MTV material, not on the level of what Michael Jackson was doing at the time. Still, it is entertaining for Bowie fans, and a funny little piece of Cinema. Bowie plays two parts, Screamin' Lord Byron, and someone trying to get into his concert. The music video itself really is the highlight of the whole thing, it's like Bowie's acting ability goes up 10 fold when he is singing. Sadly, when he isn't singing, his acting seems to suffer a bit in this piece. Like I said, this is a funny little piece of cinema, and great for collectors.
