PITT, Kenneth The Pitt Report, London: Omnibus Press, 1983, p.122
Feathers was a shortlived experimental mime trio comprising David Bowie, his girlfriend Hermione Farthingale and John Hutchinson. The group only performed on a handful of occasions. According to Kenneth Pitt ...It was an innocuous divertissement that nobody wished to pay for... Apparently this Moseley Institute concert was cancelled.
