Enjoy Life on Mars, David

This is the final episode of Marc Bolan’s 1977 U.K. television show – which includes David Bowie performing “Heroes” as well as Bowie and Bolan flubbing on a performance running under the closing credits (the flubbing is mostly by Bolan – falling over a microphone stand – but you can tell they both get a laugh out of it.)

The show is interesting because (1) it was Bolan’s final appearance anywhere (he died in a car wreck before it aired) and (2) compared to Bolan’s glam and all of the disco-era nonsense from some of the other performers, I think Bowie was actually the butchest person on the show.
