Featured on DAVID BOWIE OFFICIAL "RAF AND O's haunting performance of David Bowie's Lady Grinning Soul was one of the more memorable events of the Beckenham Festival in September 2013. And Bowie's best known ivory tinkler, Mike Garson, was moved to give the studio version of the track a big thumbs up when it was released as a single last year".
Available on Raf and O's new CD album 'Time Machine'. OUT NOW. Buy Here: http://rafando.bandcamp.com/album/tim...
