And I’m Absolutely Sane

Saint Etienne’s cover version of Bowie’s 80s film tie single Absolute Beginners- a good effort if truth be told although the repeated ‘South Bronx’ sample becomes a bit wearing. The film was based on Colin McInnes 50s novel- a classic of it’s kind.

The extended mix Bowie’s single went on for over seven minutes and was the best thing about the film by a long chalk. Except for that pesky saxophone.
