“I met him at a club. I heard him playing and was amazed; he kept switching instruments all night long and he was great on everything he touched! So I asked him if he wanted to start working with me.” David Bowie on Erdal Kizilcay, 1987
Erdal Kizilcay is one of most proficient pop and rock musicians of his generation. He recorded, toured and co-wrote with David Bowie for 13 years, and has worked with many great artists including Iggy Pop, Queen, Tina Turner and Jacques Dutronc. After a series of successful gigs in London over the last year, Erdal returns from his Swiss home to play a set of Bowie and Iggy songs with his band.
Legendary writer Hanif Kureishi will do a reading from his seminal novel ‘The Buddha of Suburbia’ at the gig, and Erdal will perform a selection of songs from the album of the same name, inspired by the book, that he recorded with David Bowie.
Erdal’s career with David Bowie include the albums ‘Never Let Me Down’, ‘The Buddha of Suburbia’ and ‘1.Outside’, as well as the Glass Spider (1987) and Sound & Vision (1990) world tours. Songs co-written by David Bowie and Erdal Kizilcay include ‘Girls’, which was covered by Tina Turner, ‘When the Wind Blows’ from the film of the same name and ‘Too Dizzy’ from Never Let Me Down, plus a number of co-writes with the rest of the band and Bowie on the Outside album. Erdal played drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and backing/harmony vocals on Iggy Pop’s seminal 1986 synth pop/rock crossover album ‘Blah Blah Blah’. In 2013 Erdal produced, wrote for and played on ‘I Never Meant’ the debut EP from London band Brazenhead.
The Erdal Kizilcay Band comprises Erdal on keyboards and vocals, Lisa Ronson on vocals, Luis Correia on guitar, David Donley on bass, Mike Connolly on drums and Simon Westbrook on guest vocals. Lisa Ronson is the singer in New York based band ‘The Secret History’ and is the daughter of legendary guitarist, producer and Spider from Mars, Mick Ronson.
At Woody Woodmansey’s invitation Erdal will also join Holy Holy on bass for their September and December gigs in the UK.
Support from exquisite singer-songwriter Gillian Glover.
