    Going with "The Man Who Sold the World" from Bowie. King's anti-Reagan bias was really shining (no pun intended) through here.

    I'm not sure about the title. I think King uses this quote, now that I think of it.

    I was in ‘Purple Unit’ at Thomastown High when our home-group leader allowed the group students to decorate the corridor leading to the ‘Main Hall;’ it was the largest in the school and used for viewing films (either for entertainment or the ‘Film Review’ course (which I passed)) so the foot traffic was high and advertising was at a premium.
    Glen (Bon—AKA Glennette, due to his main squeeze (later to become ex-wife) Annette), Paul (Angus—AKA Agnus (because he just didn’t compare to my guitar idol with his red crop and speckled face), and I were allotted the pride of place and space—approximately 8’ wide by 10’ high—across from the ‘Throne Room’ (a door bearing said entry sign being a 12x6” wooden plaque made by a well-liked student in—of course—‘Woodwork’ that led to the teachers lounge).
    We (painstakingly) traced the cover of Dirty Deeds onto a transparency then used an overhead projector to cast its glory onto our designated piece of plasterboard.
    We only had a few issues with getting the parrot right.

    I don’t disagree (ef’n double negative) that it’s a good choice of song (also favoured by SK); I chose 'Fragile' because of what I felt and heard when Polly and Allen exited Stage North.

    With regard to AccaDacca, I always circle back to ‘Ain’t no fun,’ on that album, but Powerage was always (and still is) the fave.
    Their music died at the same moment Bon did; the later stuff is like listening to Van Hagar.

    Enjoy one of the best vids of that song.

    I like You Cant Always Get What You Want and Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, I would pick the latter if forced to choose.
