THE BOWIE UNZIPPED BAND
When JeffDuff took refuge in England in the eighties, he had, as they say, worn out his welcome in Australian rock. He was simply too much of a handful, this ‘waif with a wharfie’s voice!’ camping it up out front of his trail-blazing rock ensemble ‘Kush‘. At the time, Jeff’s androgynous stage persona, dressed in leotards, garish make-up and a touch of the operatics was considered far too outrageous for many Australian audiences. Jeff’s longtime admiration for DavidBowie eventually led him to stage the first ‘Ziggy’ show in the nineties, and now The Bowie Unzipped Band is regularly touring. The Bowie Unzipped Band features Australia’s best musicians including the legendary Jeff Duff on vocals and GlennRhodes on keyboards, bass and vocals, plus Australia’s finest drummers and guitarists.
