Singing old songs we love...
We told you about David Bowie tribute outfit, The Bowie Experience, a couple of weeks back (07.23.2004 NEWS: WITNESS THE BOWIE EXPERIENCE IN THE UK TONIGHT) and it seems August is going to be just as busy for Laurence and the boys as July was.
Fresh from a triumphant show in Taunton, Somerset, last night, the band continues to storm the West Country this evening with a show in Dorset as outlined in the August diary below:

If the online reviews are to be believed and if the Unplugged And Somewhat Slightly Dazed CD that Laurence sent me is anything to go by, The Bowie Experience is well worth checking out. The band plays a wide range of songs from all eras of the Bowie back catalogue and does a pretty convincing job of many Bowie originals from Eight Line Poem through Scary Monsters to Seven and beyond.
If you do pop along to any of the above dates, please say hello to Laurence from us.
When I posted the June dates for The Bowie Experience, BowieNetter Spidey pointed out the existence of the motley crew above. No, not THE MÃƒÂ¶tley CrÃƒÂ¼e you understand, but a five-strong group of boys and girls hell-bent on flying the Glam flag under the collective banner of DiamondDogz. Needless to say, the band performs plenty of Glam era Bowie tunes among those of other popular Glitter stars of the day.
So, if you fancy a wild night of big fun, big colourful hair, poorly-applied unisex make -up and classic seventies pop noize, then click on the image above to get to
