Brian Slade - The Ballad of Maxwell Demon

This track was written for the 1998 movie, Velvet Goldmine, which fictitiously chronicles the rise of 70s glam rock. Think Bowie, or even more specifically, Ziggy Stardust. First off, this movie is amazing. Second of all, the soundtrack and score is absolutely fantastic. Pulp and Grant Lee Buffalo actually wrote new tracks in the style of glam songs of that era, which are performed by the leading characters of the movie. Fun fact: Bowie hated the script, so he denied the director the use of any of his tracks in the film. Drugs, Rock'n'roll and the search for sexual identity.
