Live: David Bowie and Hype, Roundhouse, London

Less than a month after their groundbreaking first live show, David Bowie and Hype returned to London’s Roundhouse.

This was part of the Roundhouse’s week-long Atomic Sunrise festival. Marc Bolan was among those in the audience for the show, for which Genesis were also on the bill.

Three songs from Bowie and Hype’s set were filmed: ‘Memory Of A Free Festival’, ‘The Supermen’, and the Velvet Underground’s ‘I’m Waiting For The Man’.

The soundtrack for this 16mm colour film was lost when the film’s owner failed to keep paying the film’s storage fee. Footage of the three songs listed were saved, each filmed from three different camera positions.
