They say what seems like crazy on an ordinary day seems like good
sense in the moonlight, which is the only excuse we can find for Tony
Kaye's soul-searching honesty in his recent Clio Awards Lifetime
Achievement acceptance speech.
For those who missed the emotional display, the maverick director told
the audience of his "journey" over the past year before declaring he'd
turned over a new leaf.
But, thankfully, that proved to be a flash in the pan when he took to
the stage again to introduce the audience to his latest venture, the
rock band K.
Despite promising that outlandish behaviour was a thing of the past for
him, he then served up music (and we use the term music loosely) with
predictably unconventional lyrics along the lines of "Teddy bear, teddy
bear, tie him to an electric chair". Just your average crowd-pleaser,
And if that wasn't enough, the two nutters that accompanied Kaye on
guitars were obviously listening to different music as they gyrated and
gurned through the entire show in a quite worrying manner. Please stop.
