Another of the full psychical examinations of the alien Ziggy Stardust's paranoia upon reaching the shores of the United States. A 'stranger in a strange land', overwhelmed by the sheer scale of the immediate outside world, his angst and terror inspire a violent fightback - and this pre-dates Bowie's later portrayal of a similar character, in the form of the eponymous film. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panic_in_Detroit
