    Indientally, he appears briefly - but memorably - in the 1986 cult British movie, Absolute Beginners which deals with the rise of teenagers in late 1950s London. He sings briefly in a movie with a Gil Evans soundtrack, and a cast which includes Bowie, Sade, Ray Davies and Mandy Rice-Davies of Profumo scandal fame (you have to be very Britisn and very old to know what I'm talking about there!)
