*Introduction to Brian & Maxwell Demon*
This picture below introduces the youth of the seventies, blown away by glitter rock and Brian Slade.
But firstly I would like you to listen to this this song by Grant Lee Buffalo, which is a great introduction to the new Brian Slade. You need to hang about a bit, and see how the song changes, and also there is a little explanation of Maxwell Demon.
This song is performed by Grant Lee Phillips of the aforementioned band. He is an avid fan of that era, growing up with glam rock and was delighted to be involved.

And who was Brian watching when he said "I wish I had thought of it first." Who else?
From This: To This:
"Rock and roll's a prostitute. It should be tarted up, performed. The music is the mask, while I in my chiffon and taffeta...well, varda* the message."
"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask and he'll tell you the truth."
Brian Slade AKA Maxwell Demon.

But it appears that Maxwell Demon is waiting, impatiently, in his dressng room, to go onstage.
"Ladies and Gentlemen, the Lyceum Theatre...We proudly present straight back from their fantastic new successful European Tour, Maxwell Demon and The Venus In Furs!"
varda: derived from vardo, v.t., "to see, look at, observe." A slang word in the Latin, French, and Italian-derived "Parlyaree" vocabulary of actors and showmen which began in the 18th century.
