#314 addendum - Spike Done Made A Boo-Boo.

....what do you mean again?  Cheeky bugger.

Yeah, so I mis-spoke on this week's show.  As was very quickly pointed out by listener Allan on The Facebook, the song "Keeping The Dream Alive" wasn't by Bauhaus - it was by Freiheit.  Bah!  Germans and their tricky names.  Bauhaus were, in fact, responsible for the pretty pitiful cover version of "Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars" where they very cleverly made it their own by having it sound only very slightly different than the Bowie version, but with different faces.  Well done, lads.

So, to celebrate this glorious error (and to celebrate the fact that the Paul&Spike christmas special is mere weeks away), let's all enjoy the not-christmassy offerings of Bauhau.... damn it, I did it again.  FREIHEIT, and "Keeping The Dream Alive".
