Given today’s release of Intriguer in the U.K., it seems fitting to post this sweet clip, passed on to us by a sharp-eyed reader this morning: Crowded House and the venerable Johnny Marr covering the David Bowie classic “Moonage Daydream,” along with New Zealand musician Connan Mockasin, during the encore of the band’s May 27 concert in Manchester.
Marr actually sat in with Neil Finn and Co. both nights the band was in Manchester, playing favorites by The Smiths, including “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out” and “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want,” as well as Crowded House tunes “Four Seasons In One Day” and “Even a Child,” the latter two of which can be seen below.
