Friday 29 September 2023 was the official release date for The Howling’s latest album Incredible Night Creatures of the Midway – brought to you on CD by Tapeworm subsidiary Wormhole.
On the same day the fabulous house of Loewe unveiled their SS24 women’s wear collection as part of Paris Fashion Week. For reasons that still elude me, Loewe included in their runway show extracts from The Howling’s ‘David Gest, Liza Minnelli, Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor’, which had been available since the start of September as a digital single release as a teaser for Incredible Night Creatures. The sight of so many models moving so elegantly to our work is one that will probably haunt me to my grave. If you want to share the experience, either check out the embedded video above or click here – either way, it’s a moment to behold.
The track has long been a firm favourite at Howling performances; but Howlround and I had no idea its fame had extended quite that far. If you want to find out for yourself what Loewe got so excited about, The Howling are performing at The Horse Hospital in Bloomsbury on Friday 3 November, when our good friend Travis Elborough is hosting ‘Bonfire of the BASF’, a sonic séance. Also on the bill are the fabulous Ruth Beyer talking to Caroline Wise about her ectoplasmic photography and Kemper Norton, back from the deepest deeps. You can find details and book tickets by clicking here. Howlround and I will be performing material from Incredible Night Creatures of the Midway, including ‘David Gest Liza Minnelli, Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor’. So come early, come clean...and do please dress correctly.
