David Bowie and Klaus Nomi’s Performance on SNL 1979 via Open Culture
Our little Weimar. That’s how we like to remember it. 40 years ago. I remember, fresh back from a year in London, watching Bowie and Nomi on SNL. B&W tv in a 3rd floor apartment in St Cloud. Thought, “Nothing new here.” Wrong again.

Laurie Anderson and “O Superman” was right around the corner.

> 1979 was a strange year in music. A year of endings, in a way. Sid Vicious died, Ozzy Osbourne left Black Sabbath… an old guard faded away. On the other hand, U2 went into the studio for their debut, Kate Bush went on her first tour, and new wave emerged from punk’s end.
