20 JULY 2014

Bowie's Dogs at MSG 40 years ago tonight

“Come out of The Garden baby...”

Forty years ago this very evening, David Bowie played the last concert of the first leg of his 1974 Diamond Dogs Tour, before reconvening six weeks later in LA for gigs on the west coast.

The triumphant show on July 20, 1974, was the second of two spectacular presentations at Madison Square Garden in NYC and so, what better date to announce the next instalment from Cygnet Committee? 

BOWIE IN HUNGER CITY - NEW YORK 1974 is a publication dealing with those two particular shows.

As with the last book (All American Bowie http://smarturl.it/CygnetCommittee), the text is written by Andy Barding with archive and research by his partner, Martyn Hammond. 

As with the last one, the pages of this beautifully designed book are packed with some stunning, unpublished shots of Bowie from the gigs. The team at Cygnet Committee is still finalising a publication date for this latest release, so we thought we'd give you a teaser with some visuals, including the cover, and an excerpt from Barding’s brilliantly evocative build-up of the start of the show...

“I WOULD TAKE A FOXY KIND OF STAND”

INTRO

There is no support act at these shows. As audience members take their seats (and pick up their free theatre-style souvenir handbills) a number of official announcements are made over the PA – including a warning not to buy counterfeit tickets.
With houselights dim, the eerie genius of the ‘Hunger City’ intro tape starts to play. This sonic scene-setter is the stuff of legend – an ambient collage of street scenes, animal noises and general creepiness assembled by Bowie himself.

It was certainly a talking point at the time. Wild cats (probably mimicked by Bowie) are heard to howl over a background of traffic, strange murmurs and whispers, pouring rain and – of course – a pack of barking Diamond Dogs. The atonal mix goes on and on for several minutes, charging the atmosphere and introducing an element of tense anticipation. In time, a heartbeat is heard over the city hubbub. It swells, growing louder, while an over-amplified woman approaches a noisy sexual climax.

Gently, and imperceptibly to most, Mike Garson’s two-note piano heralds its introduction to ‘1984’. It floats over the sonic melee, melding with the still-beating heart heard on tape, until a rolling cymbal splash cuts through everything to announce a concert ready to explode into action.

Lights quickly intensify to pick out band members rooted to their respective opening spots, guardians of the alleys which divide the skyscraper scenery. The song begins! The band are all together. They was alright. Earl Slick’s guitar is thunderous. But where is the singer?

1984

From the shadows to the centre of the stage swagger the two ‘chorinos’, Warren Peace and Gui Andrisano. They strut and pose together. Bowie is heard to sing the first verse of ‘1984’ but he is nowhere to be seen.

Only as the second verse begins does Bowie make his first appearance. His face – and his face alone – is suddenly picked out by precision spotlighting. His red hair, cut and coloured anew for the Garden gigs, is the brightest object on the stage. The crowd goes nuts.
Bowie steps forward into full light and the song continues, a whizz of singing and cleverly-choreographed dancing. It segues neatly into the hit of the day…

REBEL REBEL

26 NOVEMBER 2014

Bowie In Hunger City available now

“And red mutant eyes gazed down...”

We exclusively previewed the latest offering from Cygnet Committee back in July, on the 40th anniversary of the shows at MSG in July, 1974.

Here’s a reminder from the blurb regarding this spiffing 40-page limited edition publication.

BOWIE IN HUNGER CITY - NEW YORK, 1974

David Bowie's all-singing, all-dancing, all-hydraulic-lifting Year of the Diamond Dogs show was arguably the most elaborate and theatrical of his career. And even now, 40 years later, the tour retains its air of fascination.
'Bowie in Hunger City' tells the full story of what happened when Bowie's futuristic rock theatre revue rolled into New York City in July 1974.

To get your savage jaw clamped around a copy and to be tempted by some very tasty photographic prints, go here now: http://smarturl.it/CygnetCommittee

...leur prochain projet est le concert d'entame de la tournée 78, le show du 29 Mars au Sport Arena de San Diego

Tu tiens ça d'où ?
J'ai une autre info : "The third book in the series will be Vancouver 1976."
