Octogenarians perform ‘God Save the Queen’
Australian artist Christopher Buchel assembled this musical troupe of women over the age of 80 to perform the Sex Pistols classic “God Save the Queen.” It’s part of an installation of Buchel’s called, ironically, no future , in the 2008 Biennale in Sydney.
The lead singer makes Johnny Rotten look like a wuss.
When you think about, each of these women was only in her 50s in the 1970s when punk rock was the rage in Great Britain. It’s entirely conceivable – especially judging by their angsty performance – that they, you know, dig the Pistols.
