Troika #24: Dearly Departed

A bit of a delay in getting to this episode. I’ve hesitated over whether to do a full-on Bowie tribute as there are so many brilliant tributes already. It almost felt like jumping on the bandwagon. Instead I’ve bided my time, and its now evolved into a tribute to three people who’ve died too early in 2016: Lemmy Kilmister, David Bowie and Terry Wogan.

  1. ‘Shake Your Blood’ – Probot (Dave Grohl & Lemmy Kilmister)
    In 2004, Dave Grohl did a one-off project called ‘Probot’ where he wrote and performed with his musical heroes. The song he wrote with Lemmy could easily be Motorhead. “I wrote the lyrics in about ten minutes. . . It’s rock & roll, you know. It’s not one of those complicated things”
  2. ‘Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)’ – David Bowie
    I’d been listening to ‘Blackstar’, the latest (and sadly last) Bowie album for three days when the news broke. Blackstar sounded like someone still at the top of their game, with more than plenty of creativity and verve left. A great legacy, but perhaps there was still more ideas to come (he had in fact been working on a new album before his death).
  3. ‘T-WOG$ Pirate Radio’ – Peter Serafinowicz
    Instead of The Floral Dance, I’ve chosen this homage by comedian Peter Serafinowicz. What if after his Breakfast Radio Show he went off and did a secret show on Pirate Radio? I like to believe that this isn’t Serafinowicz, and is actually Terry. It’s the kind of thing he’d do. The rascal.
