Subject: News from Pip Pyle and other musings
Date: Wed, 10 Mar 1999 17:04:31 EST

Dear Aymeric and All,

Superb Brian Hopper interview, Aymeric - quite fascinating. Proof again that
Calyx is best!

Just a short word to say that I've been in touch with Pip Pyle quite a lot
recently (lunch, etc.) and, apart from the fact that he cooks a very fine
curry and is expert at drinking Cognac (like me), I have found out a few things
which may be of interest.

Firstly, Pip is exactly the cultured and very humorous person you would expect
from his songs - he really is great fun, in a very British-self-deprecating sort of style. If you believe what he says, he can't hold a beat and he can't read a note... This from the man who Aymeric quite rightly describes in his excellent Individual Artist pages as THE "Canterbury" drummer - double quotes for CB because he actually come from Sawbridgeworth (think I've got it right) in Cambridgeshire.

I went to see him because, quite frankly, the idea that the multiple copies of the Hatfields' records I have bought probably didn't earn him a penny really got up my nose. So I was looking to organize - or help organize a concert "with the band of his choice". He chose In Cahoots, much to my excitement, giving prices for both Sextet and Quartet. Particularly for the Quartet, which I really want to see again, since so far my impression is that I prefer it, especially in terms of band dynamics, the minimum prices are "depressingly" low. Unfortunately, my own finances are pretty low and I haven't been able to find a reasonable place to do it or a way of making sure that they get (at least) their minimum and hopefully quite a bit more.

This has made me think (a rare occurrence) and I would be interested to know if there are any other Rattlers in France (or elsewhere) interesting in participating in a non-profit-earning Association - provisional name "The Rotters Club of France" - with the aim of promoting CB concerts - particularly Pip's since he lives among us and is also involved in a large number of the best projects currently operating in this sphere (In Cahoots, etc.). An Association would give us access to a wider range of halls at preferential prices and might help us to dare to advance the money - maybe with privileges such as a meal with the band or something of that sort - most of our favourite musicians are extremely approachable.

If you are interested, please contact me at the e-mail address above and we'll see whether it's viable.

Apart from that, Pip was reasonably downbeat about the possible reformation of l'Equipe Out, but that may have been self-deprecation since he admitted having "sent some letters". He also told me last week that he wasn't going to do the Gong tour (don't know why), but Hell, news travels fast and WR told you already. He will be going to the States at the end of May, though, no reason given.

Incidentally, Alice Pyle, his daughter who gave him the title "Fitter Stokes Has a Bath" is now in her twenties and a dancer on cruise liners in the Caribbean. Sam Wyatt (3 1/2) is now in his early thirties and, if I remember correctly, a financial consultant - whatever that means!

Love to all.

Subject: Robert Wyatt IRC Chat!!!!
Date: Wed, 10 Mar 1999 09:04:29 -0500

Hi, folks:

The latest Artist Shop newsletter is out and you'll find it in its entirety
at <http://www.artist-shop.com/news.htm>.  But here's the big news for
Canterbury fans!

Vocalist/composer/multi-instrumentalist Robert Wyatt who will grace us with
his presence for an IRC Chat on Sunday, March 21 at 3pm eastern/12 noon
pacific. Robert Wyatt is a true giant in progressive music.   He was a
founding member of the legendary Soft Machine (not to mention Matching Mole
and other bands) and one of the main pillars of the entire Canterbury
movment.  His extensive solo career has had a musical influence that has
spread throughout and beyond the progressive genre.  His latest release,
Shleep, can be found on the Thirsty Ear label and features such old and new
friends as Annie Whitehead, Evan Parker, Brian Eno, Phil Manzanera, Paul
Weller, Philip Catherine, Jamie Johnson and others.  Thirsty Ear has also
made it their mission to release as much of Robert's back catalog as they
can!  This IRC Chat is a very rare public appearance for Wyatt and not to be
missed!  Wyatt will be taking questions on his recent activities and what's
in store for the future.  Full details on joining this chat are at
<http://www.artist-shop.com/irc>.  This is a very rare event and one that
I'm truly excited about.  I hope to see you all there!

And as we've mentioned Thirsty Ear in the above IRC announcement, it's time
to welcome them to The Artist Shop, too
<http://www.artist-shop.com/thirsty>!  Thirsty Ear, led by Peter Gordon, is
rather a quirky progressive label that I wouldn't describe so much as being
close to the edge; more like hanging over the edge with both hands clutching
the edge for dear life when suddenly your nose begins to itch.  There is a
common atmosphere about this music that is not far removed from a little
town up north called Twin Peaks!  Thirsty Ear is to be especially commended
for their alliance with such artists as Robert Wyatt, Adrian Belew, John
Fahey, John Martyn, and others, not to mention Brian Eno's All Saints
Records label with Eno and brother Roger, Jah Wobble, Kate St. John,
Roedelius, Biosphere and more.  They've also got a lot of great things on
the release schedule in the upcoming months including a box set of Richard
Wyatt EP's, a new album from Roger Eno, reissues of Hugo Largo's two albums
as well as albums by Dave Thomas and Pere Ubu!  This is definitely a page to
check out!

Our Voiceprint page <http://www.artist-shop.com/voiceprt> has undergone a
major overhaul updating all the latest releases and giving info on impending
releases.  And, here are the items that will excite Canterbury fans the most!

Various Artists/Canterburied Sounds: Volume 4 - Canterburied Sounds Volume 1
through 4 are a series of releases known as The Canterbury Archive Project.
Compiled by Brian Hopper, it offers up a myriad of treasures from the likes
of Caravan, Zobe, Robert Wyatt, Soft Machine, Brian Hopper, Kevin Ayers,
Mike Ratledge, Pye Hastings and so forth.  These historic recordings capture
the range of musical experimentation and the genesis of musical development
of many of the infamous musicians that emerged from The Canterbury Scene. It
should be noted that these tracks come from a variety of sources such as
quarter inch reel to reel tapes, compact cassettes, acetates and reference

Fred Baker/Missing Link - Frederick Thelonious Baker is regarded as a
leading exponent of the Electric Bass throughout Europe, Japan and the
United States.  He has played and recorded with many leading artists in
different fields of music ranging from Jazz, Blues, Classical, Folk and
Progressive Rock. Fred is a featured artist on several jazz albums by Phil
Miller, Harry Becket, John Etheridge, Chris McGregor and Courtney Pine and
many others. He has also been a long-standing member of Phil Miller's
progressive fusion band Incahoots with Pip Pyle, Elton Dean and Pete Lemer.
This CD reflects the hidden treasures in Fred's solo repertoire, honed and
refined over the past 20 years it fills in the gap in his recording history
and is a demonstration of Fred's outstanding technique. It also highlights
his ability to cross musical boundaries from Bach to Blues to the Abstract
with equal aplomb.  His chosen instrument is the Electric Bass both fretless
and fretted, with two tracks featuring his other well loved instruments,
electric and acoustic guitars.

Hugh Hopper, Lisa S. Klossner/Different - Alongside Pink Floyd, Soft Machine
were leaders of the British psychedelic scene.   This project came about
when Hugh Hopper boasted to Robert Wyatt that he could write better lyrics
to a Russian tune that Robert was working on. Hugh collaborated with
Streatham guitarist Mark Hewins and asked Lisa to sing the song for a demo.
Mark then went on to other things and Hugh and Lisa recorded this midi-based
album, with some mighty fuzz bass here and there and guest appearances by
other musicians blowing and hitting things.   With Lisa's cool clear vocals
and unique lyrics, Hugh has sculpted a soundscape that shimmers and hums,
beats menacingly and sears with multi-stacked fuzz.  This is a strange and
haunting collection of songs:swirling dreams and psychedelic voyages through
the past, present and future.

See you at the chat!

Sorry to lurk about but here I am: sitting here on the west coast of Michigan listening to Pip's most excellent 7 Year Itch on a Saturday afternoon a good 24 years since I first recognized and became enraptured with the Canterbury sound.  To the fellow in the last issue wonderng about Spyrogyra (not the wimpo-jazz band), search around CALYX especially Dave Stewart and Barbara Gaskin's ex-band info, and you will find what he's looking for. Most of Spyrogyra's LPs are now available on a German record label. I first heard Spyrogyra in a record shop in Amsterdam in the fall of 1975 with a head full of Black Afghani and on my way to either the Heinekin Brewery or the Van Gogh museum (can't remember which - maybe both).

Also picked up some recent Stewart/Gaskin on Rykodisc at cut-out prices at <http://www.MusicWeb.com>. A great catalog with great prices. My all-time favorite Canterbury LP:  Hatfield's "Rotters Club". Enough said.  Keep up the good work!

Subject: Memories of old times
Date: Wed, 10 Mar 1999 10:24:31 -0800

David Humphries invited old guys to tell stories, in WR#120. In the mid/early 70's I saw a Keith Tippett trio at the U. of Bristol (no I was not a scholar there!). Sat in front with a buddy. During the intermission, we were chatting (mostly about how it needed a big tenor sax), and watched Keith tinker inside the old joanna, while the drummer messed with his kit. After a few minutes we were getting a lot of "sshhh's" from the audience. Yes folks, yours truly, Mister Modern Jazz Fan, was unaware that the gig was on again.

Saw Soft Machine about 1972 at Bristol Hippodrome, sharing the bill with John Mayall, who walked out for his (second) half and sneered "NOW LET'S HAVE SOME REAL MUSIC!". Jerk-major.

Matching Mole played there too. Elton Dean had a pub gig in Bristol too, unfortunately filled with locals who simply go wherever a pub gets an extension!

Best of all was a Centipede gig at Bristol, just awesome, (1971/2??), when the band started walking on we just sat back and gaped for five minutes until the stage was full. Keith's closing piano notes, after that gigantic earth-embracing chant, were magic. I have two vinyl sets of Centipede, and they won't last forever, so come on distributors, get the authentic tapes out on CD!!!

Up-to-date more: my early-teen kid listened to MOON IN JUNE and sat down and wrote to Wyatt. (This is all from Vancouver, Canada), and bless him, the guy wrote straight back, cool and friendly and positive and personal.

Wyatt's SHLEEP is and will remain a classic -- his mind and words are magic, and open up stuff we never think of in our workaday world.

Hi What's Rattlers

It's not always easy contacting the Gong musicians on that wonderful list published in WR... But:

GAS March/99 Rolling e-flyer

NEWS    NEWS    NEWS    NEWS    NEWS    NEWS    

Not really in the swing of this e-flyer thing yet and I missed Febuary, sorry about that. In fact I'm not quite sure what happened to Febuary. Anyway things are firming up by the day gig and tour wise, plenty of hard info below but still plenty more to fill you in on next time.

There is now a release date (May 18th) on the debut album by Brainville (Daevid, Hugh Hopper, Pip Pyle and Kramer) It’s now called ‘The Children’s Crusade’ and Knitting Factory Records are the midwives on that one.

Some of you have been sending in the questionaires sent out with the lastest GAS mag - thank you. Already some interesting things are emerging. For instance the first 4 that arrived were all from Earth signs (and they still predominate now we have had 20 or so in). So either a majority of GAS members are Earth signs or "Oh questionaire. Better fill that in and send it off straight away" is what goes through an Earth sign's head?

An honourable mention to Monty (member of GAS, the Dr Spacetoad
Experience and the Dammed) for the following 'invisible' Gong 2000 line up:-

G. I. Gurdjieff-Harmonium & Moustache
Rudolf Steiner-On squeaky Red Nose
Madame Blavatsky-Sousaphone
Paracelsus-Alembics & Test tubes
Caslos Castaneda-Spirit Catcher and Castanettes
Emanuel Swedenbourg-Stradavarius
C.G.Jung-On Achephone
Wilhlm Reich-On Orgon-organasm
and finally a big sticky hand for Freud and Lacan on large indeterminate penis
shaped objects

If you listen hard you can almost hear them?

Keith Missile’s marvelous Here & Now site is up and running it’s at:-

[Section deleted - all gig dates are at the end of this issue]

To celebrate Daevid’s 40th year as a performer (in the 30th year of Gong) two widely divergent releases:
Just out ‘Eat Me Baby I’m A Jellybean’ (GAS CD016) sees Daevid Allen  returning to his roots. He has recorded a surprising fresh bebop album on which he sings quirkily reworked classic jazz standards. Thanks to the good offices of Shawn Ahearn in America he is  accompanied by a powerful, grooving, eloquent and emotional quartet of master jazz musicians who have CVs to dream of:
Ndugu Chancler the supreme jazz drummer who has played regularly with Hugh Masekela, Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Santana, Freddie Hubbard and George Duke.
Didier Malherbe who as well as being Gong’s sax genius has regular gigs with French stars Jaques Higelin, Brigitte Fontaine and Pierre Bensusan among others, as  well as with his own band Hadouk.
Eugene Maslov a spectacular Russian improvising pianist who played regularly with Antonio Carlos Jobim and who is currently recording in a trio with Omar Hakim and Eddie Gomez.
Larry Steen  the most sought after jazz bass session musician in LA at present. The CD has a full lyric booklet and liner notes by Daevid himself.

The other CD, ‘22 Meanings’ (Gliss CD005), released date 5th May, couldn’t be more different. It is a composition of one 50 minute collage of deeply organically produced ambient trance, cut with smatterings of drum'n' bass, body percussion and a small elements of  avant garde strangeness. It is based around the instrumentation Daevid Allen’s ‘glissando’ guitar (the basis of Gong’s  spacey signature sound), and of Mothergong stalwart, studio wiz and electronic instrument inventor Harry Williamson’s amazing new invention, the 26 string Angel Guitar. It’s quite a journey.

Any of you who are waiting for subscription versions they will be sent out between the arrival of Daevid in the second week of April (so he can sign the special inserts) and the release date.

Both CDs are distributed by Pinnacle in the UK (and therfore orderable in nearly all record shos)  or direct from GAS priced £12.50 + P&P (UK) £1.00,  £1.50 (Europe), £2.00 (Elsewhere)
