SPECIAL FEATURE - CARAVAN VIDEO
An Interview with Peter Carlton
I had the pleasure of receiving a copy of Peter Carlton's
video "Where But For Caravan Would I...? - An Affectionate
Tribute" in my letterbox shortly before Christmas.
Of course, it's a rarest of pleasures to watch a film made
about a band from the Canterbury scene, but it's obvious from the
introduction that a lot of work and passion went into this one.
Peter has interviewed the current members of Caravan - including
three of the four original members - and unearthed quite a few
archival documents (including a German TV performance of "Place
From My Own" from 1969 and lots of photos and memorabilia) to tell
the story of Caravan in a most entertaining manner. Those who have
never seen Caravan "in the flesh" will be pleased to discover how
nice and down-to-earth these people are!
In addition to this historical bit, we are also treated to
the entirety of Caravan's set at last summer's Canterbury
festival. The one-hour performance consists mostly of classics,
including "Nine Feet Underground" and the long medley, among many
others. Very professional camera work ensures a nice moment in
front of your TV screen!
I asked Peter to tell us more about the background to this
"As I explain in the video, I grew up in Canterbury and
the (rather scruffy) Wilde Flowers van was a familiar sight with
its floral decoration. In my late teens, I drank in the 'cool'
pubs such as the Olive Branch and the Seven Stars, spending my
days hanging around the Foundry, a hippy coffee bar whose tables
sat on old-fashioned wrought-iron sewing machine treadles, and
occasionally at the Beehive, a club in Dover Street.
The members of Caravan were regular visitors to all these
places and I was used to seeing them around, but they were a few
years older than me and I didn't know them personally. In those
days, they always seemed to be first to wear the fashionable
clothes of the day - Afghan coats, loon pants, etc.
I saw them perform several times in and around the city
and bought their first album when it first went on sale. In
1970, I left Canterbury to go to University, but still bought and
listened to their albums, losing touch as fashions changed in the
late 70s. Although I kept listening to favourite tracks from
the early days, it wasn't until five years ago when Richard
Coughlan came to Faversham with his wife Sue as managers of my
local pub, the Sun Inn, that my interest was re-awakened.
The Sun is owned by the local brewery Shepherd Neame and
in 1997 I produced a video to mark their 300th anniversary (it's
the oldest working brewery in Britain). As part of the production,
I filmed in the Sun (getting the rare shot of Richard behind the
pumps which appears in the Caravan video). Richard saw the
finished piece, realised that I had talents other than a high
consumption of his beer (!), and suggested that I make a video
about Caravan. As my work is normally commissioned by clients, my
first question was: 'Whereís the money coming from?'. That was a
question which wasn't then resolved, despite discussions with Pye
and others, and the whole project remained no more than a good
idea until the Spring of last year, when it became clear that the
much-mooted Canterbury Sound Festival was at last going to go
At that point, I had a decision to make: whether to put up
the money to record the gig; or to forget the whole thing. I
decided, perhaps rashly, to go for it and, with the technical
assistance of some of my old broadcasting contacts, put together a
four-camera outside broadcast to cover the event.
On the day, I was practically in despair, because
Caravaní's set was switched to take place after that of Gong, who
then over-ran and caused immense sound problems by re-patching the
front-of-house sound mixing desk. Also, because they came on so
late, most of Caravan's set was performed after nightfall. We
hadn't brought special lighting and therefore had to work with
some pretty difficult conditions. Nevertheless, we had some pretty
good pictures. I had already spent a day filming interviews and
rehearsals. I then bought some archive footage from Radio Bremen
and spent half a day putting on tape all the stills, posters,
personal photographs, etc., which were lent to me for the purpose
by Pye, Richard and Geoff. With the help of Mark Powell, producer
of the recent two-CD Anthology, I also arranged for the audio to
be re-mixed, to deal with some of the initial sound
My original plan was to have the video edited and
duplicated ready by the end of September, in time for the band's
autumn tour. Unfortunately, I also have to earn a living and my
clients kept me busy until the end of November, when I was finally
able to begin the edit with my colleague Alan Paul. We had it
finished at last by early December and, once we had approval and
comments from Richard and Pye, I was able to begin duplication and
distribution in time for Christmas.
As for the content and shape of the video, I felt strongly
that it would be wrong to attempt a definitive history of the
band: there are plenty of people around who know far more about
Caravan and the Canterbury sound than I do. I therefore decided on
the ìaffectionate tributeî approach and, as far as possible, tried
to let the members of the band speak for themselves.
As you can imagine, after all the problems and delays, I
find it hard to be objective about the finished result. Some days,
I think we did a good job under the circumstances. On others, all
I notice are the glitches. Nevertheless, I've received
some good feedback from people who've bought the video and I hope
this favourable word-of-mouth will help sell the 1000 copies I
need to break even!"

A SPECIAL SCREENING OF TWO
CANTERBURY-RELATED FILMS IN PARIS
I am pleased to announce, as I have played a minor part in
it, that two rare Soft Machine/Robert Wyatt related films will be
shown in Paris later this month as part of a festival of cinema at
the Centre Georges Pompidou.
The two films in question are "Beyond Image" by Mark
Boyle, and "Solar Flares Burn For You". "Beyond Image" is an
experimental film featuring an example of Boyle's light-shows in
1969, set to the music of Soft Machine performing a section of
"Facelift". "Solar Flares Burn For You" is an equally (well, even
more) experimental film which has music specially performed by
Robert Wyatt - again, a repetitive rendition of the eponymous
track which appeared in a different version on Robert's "Ruth Is
Stranger Than Richard" album.
These films will be shown as part of a "Psychedelic
Programme" (and later repeated during a "Pop Weekend" during
February, details unknown as yet). This is itself a part of a "BFI
Production" day on January 29th. The BFI is the British Film
Institute, and the programme consists of films produced by the BFI
since its creation. It includes films like Peter Greenaway's
The "Psychedelic Programme" will be screened starting at
8pm in Cinema 2 at the Centre Pompidou on January 29th, and will
also include the following films: "Meatdaze", "Solo", "Arcade",
"San Francisco", "Head Rag Hop", "Love Affair" and "Incident".

Subject: Mystic Playtime
Date: Fri, 5 Jan 2001 09:36:15 -0800 (PST)
As a early recipient of National Health's "Playtime", I'd
like to encourage readers to encourage friends to plan on
acquiring this wonderful live testament to some of our favorites.
The number 21 comes to mind: There were twenty-one tours
of North America which I coordinated -- National Health was but
the first of them. Now, twenty-one years after the event, we
finally have recorded evidence of the incredible delights which
were awaiting audiences anywhere on that tour.
I'm so excited to have a CD finally released from a tour,
it gives me hope for the next twenty years. Sort of like
Pip's prophecy --maybe by 2021, people will be able to listen to
all twenty-one of the tours that ran on what Daevid Allen and I
called "The Path."
And, perhaps there's no connection, but while National
Health were encamped at our house that week in 1979, a wonderful
and creative spirit was scouting out potential parents. My
daughter wanted in on all that fun!
Vanessa turns 21 this year. Her letter to the Chicago Art
Institute pointed to a upbringing in an environment where
eccentric, creative artists from around the world were common
But, anyway, as a big fan of the past, and a gleeful
student of the fact that there's always more of it every day, I'm
writing and pacing with Playtime.
Thanks to Steve and Cuneiform for releasing it, and thanks
to you, Aymeric for the loving care and attention to detail you
bring to your listening and writing sessions. (That detail in the
notes about a certain song they only played in Sweden!) I think
you listen better than all the rest of us!)
In short, and with no mysticism intended, "Playtime" is
fabulous and essential. Hope everyone catches up. Start off the
true millenium in playful style.

Date: Tue, 02 Jan 2001 16:12:55 -0500
Here's a question:
In an interview
Campbell talks about his bass having a thin neck and how that was
a boon to his playing. Sure enough, on the back of the first Egg
album, there he is holding something that looks like a detergent
box with some pillboxes and a pool cue stuck to it. What sort of
bass is that?
And I'd like to raise a question I've asked before, but
nobody knows the
My cd of Mercy Dash lists 6 tracks, but has only 5. Is
something missing? Does the vinyl have the same situation?
* * * * *
Hugh Hopper replies: "Well, I think the last track is
divided into two names - the first part with Elton doubletracked
with Keith is WAFFLING AGAIN and the second part which is mostly
fuzz bass with Keith is PUNK OM. Can't really remember..."

Subject: Richard Sinclair?
Date: 03 Jan 2001 07:43 GMT
Unfortunately I have not read many of the past issues of
"WR" - so sorry for asking something, which has been discussed
before. I want to ask, if there's anything new from Richard
Sinclair. What is he doing? Can we expect any new recordings in
the future? For me it seems, that he is totally faded away. From
all Canterbury musicians he was always (for me) one of the most
typical representative of the "Canterbury-Feeling" and I miss his
wonderful voice and bass playing.
[These days Richard is spending his time between
Canterbury and Holland. He hasn't been very active since 1996
although he still plays the occasional gig - mostly private
parties. He has amassed a lot of ideas for his next album, but as
far as I can tell from my meeting with Richard last September, a
lot of work remains to be done to finalise material for a new
work. Stay tuned... - AL]

The latest Artist Shop newsletter is out and you'll find
it in its entirety at <http://www.artist-shop.com/news.htm>.
Here are some excerpts for Canterbury fans:
New releases from Voiceprint and associated labels
Anthony Moore/The Only Choice
Anthony began his recording career in the early seventies
providing the soundtracks for experimental films. Along with
Dagmar Krause and Peter Blegvad he went on to form the group Slapp
Happy who joined forces with Faust to release their debut album
Sort Of in 1972. The band then signed to Virgin and built up a
cult following of fans, critics and musicians such as Henry Cow
and Robert Wyatt. Anthony left the band in 1975 and pursued an
erratic solo career, releasing Out on Virgin in 1976 and Flying
Doesn't Help in 1979 and World Service in 1981 on Do - It. The
Only Choice was originally released in 1984, on Parlophone and was
to be Anthony's final solo album. The track No Parlez was later
covered by Paul Young and when Roger Waters left Pink Floyd,
Anthony began writing lyrics for the band. The album was produced
by Laurie Latham (The Stranglers, Echo & The Bunnymen, Paul
Young ) and featured musicians include Dagmar Krause, Marc Feltham
and Kate St. John.
Future releases from Voiceprint and associated labels
Hugh Hopper/Parabolic Versions
Hugh Hopper is a legendary figure within the "Canterbury
Scene," as bassist with the mark 2 line up of Soft Machine. The
Softs were one of the most innovative acts to emerge from the late
60's Underground Scene. They were regulars at Middle Earth
and UFO clubs, played and hung out with Hendrix, were supported
regularly by Pink Floyd and employed Damon Albarn's father! This
record reflects the work Hugh has achieved with various creative
singers and lyricists, from 1983 through to 1999.
Featured musicians include Lisa S Klossner, Richard Sinclair, Rick
Biddulph and Robert Wyatt. Features the original and unreleased
version of "Was A Friend" with Robert Wyatt on vocals and Hugh on
keyboards and bass. Wyatt included a new version of this cut on
his most recent album "Shleep."
Elton Dean/Q E D
Elton Dean, Canterbury legend and Soft Machine horn
allegory is back better than ever with a stunning new album!! The
CD has brilliant artwork and the sleeve notes are personally
written by Elton. Voiceprint is pleased to announce Elton's latest
studio opus which is the result of over three decades of producing
the most interesting and unique music. Elton's music has matured
with age and the quality and delivery is better than ever.
Musicians featured on QED are Alex Maguire (piano, Hammond organ),
Tony Bianco (drums), Roberto Bellatalla(bass), Mark Sanders
(drums), Paul Dunmall (tenor sax), Simon Picard (tenor sax), Jason
Yarde (alto sax), Paul Rogers (bass), Nick Evans (trombone) and
Jim Dvorak.(trumpet/pocket trumpet). 'Sax. Com', 'Sheepdogs' and
'Deep Crease' were recorded as part of the Wireless Festival at
the Red Rose Club.
Annie Whitehead needs no introduction... but for those of
you who really should know better... She has her own band, has
played in the Penguin Café Orchestra and has been dubbed the first
lady of British Jazz. Naked was Annie's first studio album
and this was issued by FCZ and received stunning reviews at the
time. Due to the record company disappearing Naked was lost until
now. This brilliant album has been re-issued with stunning new
deluxe full colour artwork. There is a huge surge in Annie's
profile due to her touring with both Soupsongs (Robert Wyatt
project) and her own band. She has also just released a new solo
record The Gathering on the Provocateur label.
Keith and Julie Tippets/Couple in Spirit 2
Keith and Julie Tippets, are the first couple of
improvised music. Prior to her marriage to Keith, Julie was a well
known performer in her own right. As Julie Driscoll she performed
with many top artists including Brian Auger. Couple in Spirit is
recorded live and captures the whole unique interplay which
transcends the the written musical page. Their ethereal bond works
not just as husband and wife, but also as they become one to
create the most harmonious music. This is an excellent follow up
to the very popular Couple In Spirit on the EG label. This
recording has been specially mastered for CD with artwork by Inca
Tippet the talented daughter of this husband and wife team. Both
Julie and Keith tour extensively which keeps their profile high,
and Julie is also involved in the Soupsongs tour which is the
Robert Wyatt project.
Keith Tippett/Friday 13th
Anybody who knows anything about the UK Jazz scene will
have heard of the uniquely talented Mr. Tippett. However Keith's
talents haven't just been hidden in the tight knit community of
the jazz scene. He has crossed over into the rock arena by working
extensively with King Crimson, during what has been described
arguably as their finest hour. Friday the 13th captures Keith at
his best at the height of his most recent Japanese tour. A
breathtaking performance by one of Britains finest
musicians! This recording has been specially mastered for CD
and it is the first time it has been issued outside Japan. The
album comes complete with deluxe sleeve artwork which is both
interesting and striking. A must for all Keith Tippett's fans and
for those who enjoy interesting and stunning music.
Geoff Richardson & Jim Leverton/Poor Man's Rich Man
Jim Leverton is in the current line up of Caravan and was
Steve Marriott's right hand man. Geoffery Richardson has played
with Caravan, Quantum Jump, Rupert Hine and Anthony Phillips. Rich
Man's Poor Man is the second studio album by this duo and is full
of Canterbury Scene sounds. The music is filled with rich textures
and the fine playing by Jim and Geoff make this a stunning album.
Jim and Geoff were recently on a nationwide tour with Caravan
which precedes the reissues of Caravan back catalogue by DECCA.
All this will increase the profile of both artists dramatically
with press and radio interest. Digitally mastered for CD with
great artwork this album is a must for Soft Machine and Caravan
Available now from Clearlight Music
Clearlight Symphony/Forever Blowing Bubbles
This album followed the heady success of Symphony by
charting into new territory. Forever Blowing Bubbles is also based
on keyboardist Cyrille Verdeaux's piano and synthesizers but
incorporates a more cohesive group sound featuring
bassist/vocalist Joel Duregenot (ex-Zao), violinist David Cross
(King Crimson) & guitarist/flutist Jean Claude d'Agostini
(Magic Circus). Shorter songs with more variety are featured with
pronounced synthesizer textures and a strong symphonic/psychedelic
ambiance. Long a favorite of certain Clearlight fans, Bubbles was
remastered to provide the best sound quality possible. In
addition to the original tracks, this CD also boasts the presence
of three bonus tracks remixed in 2000 from the original 16 track
master tape. "Sweet Absinthe" was recorded for the original
sessions but left off the LP because of its length.
Featuring the triple tracked guitar artistry of Christian Boule
along with Verdeaux's inventive keyboards and tuned drums with
Gilbert Artman, this track transports the listener straight into
the next level. The song "Without Words" was remixed to
bring out the symphonic qualties of the keyboards, in particular
the multliple layers of Mellotron that were obscured on the
original mix. "Flute Aquatique" is a remix of "Jungle
Bubbles" but with Francois Jeanneau's flute and percussion taking
center stage creating a piece that would not be out of place at
any world music festival.
Coming soon from Cuneiform
Although the lineup of Alan Gowen, John Greaves, Phil
Miller and Pip Pyle were together longer than any other version of
National Health, there has been no recorded evidence until now.
Recorded at two concerts in 1979 - including one show that
features the addition of guest guitarist Alain Eckert (Art Zoyd) -
the majority of this CD freatures compositions never before heard
from National Health. With previously unpublished photos and a
history of this final period of the band.
This British jazz saxophone legend first came to
prominence as a member of Soft Machine. A unique voice on
alto sax and saxello, he is a pioneer in the 'Brit-jazz' realm and
has appeared as a leader or featured side man on dozens of albums.
Joining him on this introspective and melodic venture are his
fellow In Cahoots member bassist Fred Baker, drummer Liam
Genockey, guitarist Mark Hewins, Alex Maguire on Hammond organ,
and percussionist Mark Sanders.
I should also mention that you'll find full length tracks
