I'm sure you are all well aware of the Radio 1 competition announced by off-beat DJs Mark 'n' Lard yesterday, in which the bizarre duo asked for the following sentence to be completed in no more than fifteen words: "David Bowie could do a lot worse than support the Shirehorses on their forthcoming UK tour because..."
Well one or two of you in the US of A have highlighted your ignorance of the popular combo's work. The competition doesn't close until late tomorrow night, so you still have a chance to swot up on the work of these brave but mildly insane visitors to the European album charts. You can commence your research here.
When you are happy that your findings have inspired you sufficiently to pen the winning answer, send your fifteen words or less to firstname.lastname@example.org ...Remember the prize is a print of the Bowie at the Beeb cover signed by both David Bowie and Guy Peellaert, and the outright winner will get the chance to speak with DB on the telephone this coming Friday. There are two or three runner up prizes of the 3CD set.
You can listen to the show online by going here ...Answers can also be faxed or snail-mailed. Good luck!
