Yes, he says, wobbling on his cane … I remember - They were an excellent band. And except for the mysteriously blank blue key screen behind them (I imagine pulsing psychedelic patterns were intended), this is a pretty well shot performance video. Thanks for digging this out!
“One of the most important female bands in American rock has been buried without a trace. And that is Fanny. They were one of the finest fucking rock bands of their time, in about 1973. They were extraordinary: They wrote everything, they played like motherfuckers, they were just colossal and wonderful, and nobody’s ever mentioned them. They’re as important as anybody else who’s ever been, ever; it just wasn’t their time. Revivify Fanny. And I will feel that my work is done.”
—David Bowie in a December 1999 issue of Rolling Stone
