Dylan Howe’s Subterraneans are to perform a Derby Jazz gig on September 12 from 8pm at the Robert Ludlam Theatre at Darley Abbey in Derby.

Dylan is a British drummer best known for leading his quintet and other jazz groups since 2002, and his tenures with Ian Dury and the Blockheads, Steve Howe and Wilko Johnson (he played on the recent album number one album, Going Back Home, with Wilko Johnson and Roger Daltrey).

He has also played with the likes of Nick Cave, Damon Albarn, Ray Davies, Paul McCartney, David Gilmour, Beth Gibbons, Gabrielle, Hugh Cornwell and Andy Sheppard amongst others.

He is promoting his first studio album in ten years, a radical new take on the instrumental cuts from David Bowie’s 1977 albums Low and “Heroes”.

It’s made up of his arrangements of Bowie’s influential music from his Berlin Trilogy and has been seven years in the making. It features some of the best musicians in the UK.

With his five-piece band featuring Dave Whitford - double bass, Ross Stanley – piano, Steve Lodder - synthesisers and Andy Sheppard - tenor saxophone they will be featuring tracks from the album, while a specially-made film will be projected during the concert.
