NIGHT CRAWLING
2nd August 2022

The brand new song by JOHN CALE entitled: 'Night Crawling' is out now on Domino Record Co.

The promo video animated by Mickey Miles, features John and DAVID BOWIE out on the town in New York City. The song recalls his friendship with Bowie in the early 70s...

"It's been a helluva past 2 years and I'm glad to finally share a glimpse of what's coming ahead," said Cale.

"There was this period around mid-late '70s when David and I would run into each other in NY. There was plenty of talk about getting some work done but of course we'd end up running the streets, sometimes until we couldn't keep a thought in our heads, let alone actually get a song together!

"One night we managed to meet up for a benefit concert where I taught him a viola part so we could perform together. When I wrote 'Night Crawling', it was a reflective moment of particular times. That kind of NYC that held art in its grip, strong enough to keep it safe and dangerous enough to keep it interesting. I always figured we'd have another go at the two of us recording together, this time without the interference of being perpetually off our heads! The thing about creating music is the ability to divine a thought or feeling even when reality says it's a logical impossibility."

Check out the official video below...



For more details and information, visit john-cale.com website.

(Ed. The concert was a WKCR-FM Benefit 'New Music' held at Carnegie Hall, New York City on 1st April 1979. David Bowie joins John Cale and performs one number, a Cale composition entitled 'Sabotage' featuring David Bowie on viola and Gregor Kitzis on 1st violin).

BECKENHAM ODDITY FESTIVAL 2022
1st August 2022

Beckenham Oddity Festival 2022 The 6th BECKENHAM ODDITY FESTIVAL takes place this month on Saturday 13th August at Croydon Road Recreation Ground in Beckenham.

Come and join us to celebrate the life and music of DAVID BOWIE.

Since 2016, the event has been fundraising for the Bowie Bandstand Restoration Project in Beckenham. David Bowie co-organised and performed on the bandstand at the Growth Summer Festival of 1969 and it is now a British Heritage Grade 2 listed building, thanks to this event and the organiser. As a result, this iconic bandstand will soon be restored to its former glory.

Organiser Wendy Faulkner: "I'm thrilled that the finishing line is finally in sight for the Bandstands Restoration as this will be a lasting legacy, to not only David Bowie, but for all the artists and people involved in the original Growth Summer Festival of 1969, and of course for their families.

The work on the bandstand will start in September this year and a launch party for the completion will take place in April 2023... and then We're Gonna Have A Party!"

For this year's event we will be raising money for three wonderful charities, Cabaret Vs Cancer, Terrence Higgins Trust and St Christopher's Hospice.

Tickets are available from 1.00pm today from wegottickets.com - a limited amount of tickets will also be available at the gate on the day of the festival.

A big thank you to everyone for supporting the event as well as the fundraising efforts, without you none of this would have been possible. Don't miss this fantastic family event.

Venue: Croydon Road Recreation Ground
Address: 319 Croydon Road, Beckenham BR3 3PR, England
Date: 13th August 2022
Open: 11.45am, starts: 12.00pm-8.30pm
