A LAD INANE
A Lad Inane - aka "Laddie"
Aladinane is truly an amazing young man. Not only does he manage to retain his coolness while living in Texas, but he also reknown for being a real suave cat.
Aladinane's biggest talent is the ability to turn any David Bowie song into silly classics, rather like his hero and mentor, Weird Al Yankovic (only Laddie has better hair). For years now, the Ladster has been making BW bust out in belly laughs with his master craftsmanship and lyrical ability.
He is also secretly living as a homeless man in the mean streets of San Antonio, a city known for it's rough and tumble gangland lifestyle. And apparently he will work for food.
18th December 1979.

The Incredibly Androgynous Orwellian Creature Who Stopped Living and Became a Mixed-Up Glam Rock Icon!
(Being inspired by Bowie is one thing, but this guy completely ripped him off in the late 70s).
