Time Machine And The Sun Machine – Memory Of A Free Festival 2013

Raf and O announce the new album ‘Time Machine’ will be out in the autumn.  We are extremely pleased to say that our album will be out before the year’s over; July called for some splendid sun, we’ve been walking and replenishing! We’re now making plans for our new release and will keep you posted.

On the gigging front, we’ve been playing some fresh material. Performing on the carpet where Bob Dylan stood and played London for the first time, Scaledown 90 at The King and Queen was our recent live outing. On the night also a powerful solo performance by the brilliant Charles Hayward. Thanks Scaledown for hosting us, it was a great night!

Returning back to South East side of London, Beckenham is our next destination…In the summer of 1969 David Bowie and the Beckenham’s Arts Lab organised a Free Festival in Beckenham Recreation Ground. Bowie played and compered at the event, immortalised in the song ‘Memory Of A Free Festival’ for his album of the same year. Fourty-four years later, Memory Of A Free Festival 2013  is the homage festival to the original, raising funds to restore the historic victorian bandstand stage and Raf and O have been selected to play on the day: we will perform original material and our version of Bowie’s ‘Lady Grinning Soul’, which  is available as a single plus another surprise in store. Very very excited about this! Having been at the V&A exhibition earlier in the year, memories become realities, connections and stories come out of the pages – my treasured album of David Bowie 1969 stands the test of time. Past and present keep intermingling in the true spirit of Raf and Oupcoming album ‘Time Machine’. The Festival is in Croydon Road Recreation Ground, Beckenham on September 15th – details on the LIVE PAGE.
