El músico peruano reinterpretó el conocido tema de David Bowie en una versión orientada al post-punk

Es difícil establecer cuánto impacto tuvo la obra de David Bowie en la escena local. Sin embargo, algunos artistas peruanos no han dudado en colocar al británico en el primer lugar de sus influencias. Es el caso de Rod Blur, quien desde su tribuna post-punk decidió reinterpretar el clásico tema “Ziggy Stardust”, en un cover que ha calificado como “emocionante, electrónico y dark”.

El músico limeño grabó este homenaje de corte dark wave junto a Walter López, guitarrista y coproductor en su agrupación. El lanzamiento, además, cuenta con un videoclip dirigido por Fence Image Studio.

Rodrigo Pinedo, nombre real de Rod Blur, no presentaba nuevo material desde su álbum Levitation is my Magick Trick (Autoeditado, 2020). Bowie tuvo que hacer el milagro. Puedes escuchar “Ziggy Stardust” a continuación:

Letra de “Ziggy Stardust” por David Bowie:

Ziggy played guitar
Jamming good with Weird and Gilly
And the Spiders from Mars
He played it left hand
But made it too far
Became the special man
Then we were Ziggy’s band

Ziggy really sang
Screwed-up eyes and screwed-down hairdo
Like some cat from Japan
He could lick ‘em by smiling
He could leave ‘em to hang
They came on so loaded, man
Well-hung and snow-white tan

So where were the spiders
While the fly tried to break our bones?
With just the beer light to guide us
So we bitched about his fans
And should we crush his sweet hands?

Ziggy played for time
Jiving us that we were voodoo
The kids were just crass
He was the nazz
With God-given ass
He took it all too far
But, boy, could he play guitar

Making love with his ego
Ziggy sucked up into his mind, ah
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man
I had to break up the band
