“Come back my baby, be Holy Holy again”
Following their stint of successful shows in London last December, Holy Holy, featuring ex Spider From Mars, Woody Woodmansey, have more gigs scheduled at The Lexington this December.
Though it’s a way off yet, early booking is advised due to the popularity of the band’s brilliant treatment of the songs of David Bowie from the period 1969 to 1973.
Here’s the official blurb...
Holy Holy with Woody Woodmansey, dates in December 2014 announced
Supergroup Holy Holy play the songs of David Bowie from 1969 to 1973. Formed to play Latitude Festival in 2013, the stellar line-up includes Spandau Ballet’s Steve Norman, Generation X guitarist James Stevenson, Mick Ronson's daughter Lisa, and his sister Maggi. On drums again will be a very special appearance from one of the original Spiders from Mars, legendary drummer Woody Woodmansey. Holy Holy received a 4 star review in the Times last year.
After a successful mini tour of London in December 2013, 2014 will be a busy year for the band with plans to release a single and to play a number of live performances.
The first Holy Holy dates to be confirmed for 2014 are three shows at the Lexington; a 3pm matinee on Sunday 21 December (open to people of all ages - bring your kids!), then 8pm on 21 December, then 8pm on Monday 22 December.
Woody says “I'm looking forward to the gigs at The Lexington. We played there in Dec 2013 and it was without a doubt one of the best gigs I've done for a long time. The band were really cooking and the audience were amazing, they had come to see and hear those Bowie songs and the combination of band and audience created an atmosphere that I haven't experienced since the 70's.......That spirit is what it's all about. See you there."
Tickets are available here:
Support from renowned singer/songwriter, Mick Ronson and Brian Eno collaborator, Philip Rambow, presenting key songs and stories from his experience of the '60s and '70s music scenes in Montreal, New York and London.

Meanwhile, Woody has been busying himself with other projects, namely a whole new album of original compositions under the name of Delta Rayz.
Among the contributors to the album is the last recorded work from fellow Spider, Trevor Bolder. Read more about that here.
Finally, Woody has revealed that he was back in the studio last month recording more Bowie songs with Joe Elliott and co for an upcoming Cybernauts album...
“Mid January Woody went in to Martin Smith’s ‘Garage Studios’ and put down 3 new drum tracks for the Cybernauts album soon to be made available as downloads.
‘Cybernauts’ are Joe Elliott and Phil Collen from Def Leppard and Trev Bolder and myself (Spiders). New tracks are John I’m Only Dancing, After All and Queen Bitch.
Cybernauts last released a limited edition album in Japan in 2000!”
