Crikey David, what were you thinking?!
So quite what possessed him to produce an homage* to, of all people, Imelda Marcos, she of the murderous kleptocracy which ruled The Philippines for over 20 years, I do not know. Equally, quite why such luminaries as Fatboy Slim, Florence Welch and Tori Amos (to name but a few) got involved is a mystery as well.
In a recent interview, Byrne said that some other potential collaborators had turned him down "for ideological reasons" - I'll bet they did!
Maybe there is some deep irony which I am missing here, but for the life of me I can't see it.
Oh....and the music's pretty ordinary as well.
Think I'll skip this one, Dave, if it's all the same to you.
