"You know what you are, Tony? I know what you are, but you don't know what you are; you're a cunt."
No, not Anthony Blair; Anthony Wilson.
Interesting (and probably deliberate) punkk/anti-punk juxtaposition from 24 Hour Party People (why they didn't call it Squirrel and G-Man Twenty Four Hour Party People Plastic Face Carnt Smile (White Out) I don't know, the sell-outs) Part 1; Tony Wilson, his friend who's name I carnt remember and his wife who is played by Shirley Henderson, return to Tony's house/flat after witnessing The Sex Pistols live in manchester at some point in 1976, and decide to make it punk-friendly by tearing down some posters. About to rip a Bowie poster from the wall, Tony asks "David?", to which Lindsey (his wife) replies "No, not David." Tony (Steve Coogan) rips down said poster anyway. Later on in the film there is a montage of footage of 'exciting' and 'vibrant' 'punk' 'artists', including Iggy Pop performing "The Passenger". A tune produced by David Bowie.
