A short step for man…

…a giant leap for indie-pop.

It is indeed forty years ago since Neil Armstrong walked on the moon.

How to mark that here? Posting ‘Space Oddity’ (which itself is forty years old now) by David Bowie with its’ sort of sequal ‘Ashes to Ashes’ as well?

Too obvious.

‘I’m the Urban Spaceman’ by the Bondo Dog Doo-Dah band?

A great track, but someone’s probably thought of that too.

So…I give you one of Japan’s finest bands…Shonen Knife.
