The Billy Bragg segment comes just after Bowie performed at NetAid in October 1999, they have a casual conversation about his career and there are some studio tracks intertwined in the 20 minute interview. Bowie seems more at ease with a fellow musician versus the comedic DJ and interviewer. Bowie then performs Survive and China Girl live in Studio 4 Maida Vale. Both songs are lush sounding and superbly played, and the sound quality is excellent.
Recorded just after ‘The Mark And Lard Show’
