Turquoise were a mixed media trio who consisted of: David Bowie (vocals, mime), Hermione Farthingale (vocals, mime) and Tony Hill (acoustic guitar, vocals) from the group 'The Misunderstood'. David had placed an advertisement in the International Times way back in June. It stated 'David Bowie needs acoustic guitarist singing/speaking for exciting project, must be alive'. The name Turquoise lasted for only a small number of appearances before Tony Hill's final performance on 16th September. Tony left to join 'High Tide', a group that David was later to support. His replacement was ex Buzz member John Hutchinson. Shortly after the name was changed to Feathers.
