OLDHAM, ATHLETIC!

Andrew Loog Oldham will be presenting something very special indeed...

Legendary ROLLING STONES svengali

ANDREW LOOG OLDHAM is to make a

clutch of rare appearances in the UK later this month,

presenting the first official screenings of a STONES

concert film from the mid-1960s.

Oldham will travel from his home

in Bogota, Colombia to present ‘Charlie Is My

Darling’ in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Belfast.

The 50-minute film captures the band over three

days in September 1965 playing shows in

Belfast and Dublin.

A behind the scenes documentary filmed entirely on

hand-held camera, it also includes early performances

of classics such as ‘Get Off Of My

Cloud’ and

‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’.

The screenings come as part of the Triptych

Festival in Scotland and the

Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival in

Belfast. They will be at Glasgow GFT

(April 28), Edinburgh Filmhouse

(April 29), Aberdeen (May 1) and

Belfast Northern Whig (May 3).

To coincide with Loog Oldham’s

appearance in the UK, Decca Records

will re-release The Andrew Oldham

Orchestra album, ‘The Rolling Stones

Songbook’, on May 10. The LP contains

instrumental versions of many Stones

classics , including ‘The Last Time’, famously

sampled by The Verve

on ‘Bitter Sweet Symphony’ in 1997.
