DAVID BOWIE – ALADDIN SANE. Thursday 6th June at 7.30pm

On 5th July 2017, The CAT Club’s featured album was Bowie’s ‘The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.’ Our special guest that day was the band’s drummer, Woody Woodmansey. We’ve wanted to present the follow up record to Ziggy Stardust, the truly wonderful ‘Aladdin Sane’ for some time now but never seemed to get it together. Until a certain memoir was recently published . . .

Suzi Fussey was working in a Beckenham hair salon in the early seventies when Mrs Jones came in for her weekly shampoo and set. After being introduced to her son David and his wife Angie, Suzi finds herself at the Bowies’ bohemian apartment and is soon embroiled in their raucous world.

Having crafted his iconic Ziggy Stardust hairstyle, Suzi becomes the only working woman in David’s touring party and joins the Spiders from Mars as they perform around the globe. Amid the costume blunders, parties and groupies she meets her husband-to-be, Mick Ronson, and together they traverse the absurdities of life in show business, falling in with the likes of Iggy Pop, Bob Dylan and Lou Reed along the way.

Dazzling and intimate, Me and Mr Jones provides not only a unique perspective on one of the most beguiling stars of our time but also a world on the cusp of cultural transformation, charting the highs and lows of life as one of the only women in the room as it happened.

We are delighted that Suzi Ronson will be joining us to talk about her life with both David Bowie and Mick Ronson and, of course, ‘Aladdin Sane.’

Happy Trails.
