Dear Rattlers:

Great news about Cuneiform's release of the Soft Machine "Noisette" live set, but I have a couple of comments that maybe Steve at Cuneiform might care to address.

First, he says that Facelift won't be included because it's already on SM3. Surely, though, it would be better to have the COMPLETE concert, Facelift 'n' all?  I'm sure most fans would prefer this.  Or do they want to keep it as a single disc for cost reasons?

Steve then goes on to say that the sound quality of the tapes is excellent, far better-sounding that Facelift does on SM3.

Now surely this clinches the argument for including facelight on Noisette? I'm sure we'd all like a definitive recording of this version.

How 'bout it, Steve?

Dear Readers/Writers:

I would like to take a minute to thank the various members of Henry Cow who gave their feedback relative to the much discussed topic of old archive tapes.

Positive light is there according to Chris Cutler so maybe campaigning this way can do something and show the musicians that the fans are indeed interested in this kind of material, even if a little messy/incomplete etc..

It also shows you that these members are humans and not   primadonna types who wouldn't even dream of corresponding with the common folk. This comment applies to all musicians that contribute to this group.

Recently, I have been listening to different things, among them King Crimson and their various offshoot projects, live releases, Soundscapes and stuff and in reading the liner notes to 'Thrakattak', it is mentioned that due to similar contributions to 'Elephant Talk', their talk group, that the fans and their comments/concerns/desires are indeed taken seriously by the musicians, hence one of the reasons that Thrakkatak was released at all.

It's like anything in life, all you have to do is ask.
The surprising thing is that alot of the times the answer will be 'yes'.

Have a good one,

Date: Tue, 06 Jul 1999 07:09:36 GMT

A few issues back it was mentioned that a Bill Bruford Earthworks gig had been recorded for UK radio broadcast... well I have been reliably informed by a friend that this will be transmitted on Saturday 24th July in the BBC Radio 3 "Jazz on 3" programme which is usually on at about 11-12 o'clock at night BST (I suggest anyone interested check the Radio Times or BBC website nearer the date for the exact time.)

I caught the recent tour in Haywards Heath, it was a great evening (imagine seeing your favourite drummer at ten paces in a place not unlike a school hall and you'll get the picture...!)and on this basis it should be well worth trying to catch this programme.

Hope this info is useful to some of you

All the best!

Subject: Peter Blegvad à l'hotel du Nord
Date: Wed, 7 Jul 1999 14:20:57 +0200

Hi rattlers,

Peter Blegvad was announced supporting Robyn Hitchcock at the Hotel Du Nord, a little club in Paris, for 2 consecutive evenings on 27 and 28 of June. In fact most of the people these nights came to see Robyn and had never heard of Blegvad. But the response was very positive from the audience. The first surprise of these concerts was the appearance of JOHN GREAVES on electric bass for the whole set ! Second surprise was SYD STRAW, helping Peter Blegvad on backing, and sometimes lead vocals during most of the set.

I think it's needless to present John Greaves here, but many may not have heard of Syd Straw until now. Though her connections with the Canterbury family can be found many years before :

SYD STRAW appears for the first time on THE GOLDEN PALOMINOS second album 'Blast Of Silence' (1986), alongside musicians such as Anton Fier (Pere Ubu, The Lodge), Peter Blegvad and Lisa Herman (Kew Rhone) amongst other. On this album 5 tracks are co-written by Blegvad - 'Angels', 'Something becomes nothing', 'Something else is working harder', 'Strong simple silences', and 'Work was new' - 3 of them will appear later on his solo albums (it's usual for him to do cover versions of his own songs).

Following this first collaboration, Blegvad took part in SYD STRAW's first solo album 'Surprise' (1989), playing acoustic guitar on half the tracks, and even co-composing two songs with Syd (not yet covered on his own albums as far as I know !). It's interesting to notice that Anthony Moore also contributed to this album as producer, keyboard player and co-composer of 2 tracks also. Despite this, its not a Slapp-Happy-with-Syd-Straw-replacing-Dagmar album ! The other musicians are American studio musicians and the music is pop, FM calibrated, awful...

Finally, Syd Straw contributes backing vocals on some tracks of Blegvad's album King Strut' (1990). I didn't find another trace of collaboration between them until these 2 concerts at the Hotel du Nord.

Coming back to these concerts. Peter Blegvad offered us 2 completely different sets. Only two tracks were played on both evenings : 'Let's travel Light' and 'Gold'.

set list first evening :
The unborn Byron (a SLAPP HAPPY song)
Mad love vanishes
Face off
Penny black
Heaven in hell's despite
The marvellous in the everyday
On all fours
Let's travel light
The toughest girl in the world (a Syd Straw's solo song)
The golden age
Powers in the air
Blegvad and Straw came back for the encore of Robyn Hitchcock's set, to jam
with him on 2 songs 'Chinese bones' and 'Devil's mask'.

Set list second evening :
In the meantime
You and me
That'll be him now
Shirt and comb
Waste of time
Lying again
Meet the rain
Let's travel light
Hangman's Hill
King Strut

It was fun to see John Greaves with his little glasses playing bass in a very concentrated way. He didn't sing at all, as was reported in the last WR, he only played bass and occasionnally corrected Syd's mistakes when she tried to speak in French. Peter Blegvad gave a lot of energy in his songs. At the end of his set, he was wet as if he had taken a shower. Two very enjoyable evenings ! And I urge you to see Peter Blegvad if he plays in your area, for it's not so often that we can see him in concert.

Photos of these concerts can soon be seen  on 'Fireflies in the Dark' Web site :

Subject: A short review of Caravan's "Surprise Supplies"
Date: Mon, 12 Jul 1999 23:07 +0000

Courtesy of Caravan's current label HTD comes this previously unavailable live document from one of the band's lesser-known periods. The credits on the CD are a little vague, but I feel I can correct a couple of mistakes/omissions straight away. First, consisting as it does mostly of material from "Blind Dog At St. Dunstans", and given the fact that Pye Hastings rarely presented finished lyrics for his songs before recording them, the concert from which this recording is taken must date from 1976, not 1975 as mentioned on the CD. Furthermore, a surprise delight comes from the uncredited contributions of Jimmy Hastings on sax, flute and clarinet, which suggest that the gig in question wasn't your average gig, but rather a BBC In Concert sort of event.

As far as the music is concerned, I must say I'm not that big a fan of that particular album, which for me marks the beginning of Caravan's decline into pure pop, which is probably to some people's taste and is in any case more than listenable for those enamoured with Pye Hasting's voice and his colleagues' instrumental prowess. However, stripped of the superfluous production weight, not least the intrusive female backing vocals of "Oik", and with the energy of a great live performance, the songs gain a lot to my ears. As all of the songs from "Blind Dog" bar one are included here, I would heartily recommend buying this CD instead of the studio album. And of course there's some fine jamming as usual, including more of Geoff Richardson's viola than on the album.

Also of note are the fact that Mike Wedgwood takes the lead vocals on "Can You Hear Me?", and that Jimmy Hastings' flute solo on the closing "The Love In Your Eye" is the one instance I know of that part being performed in an almost superior way to the original version. That version is also interesting for Jan Schelhaas' keyboard playing, although his style is quite similar to Dave Sinclair's at the time. It would be nice to hear a recording from the tour Caravan did later that year with both keysmen onboard.

All in all this is compulsory listening for Caravan fans and a fine album for all those with a soft spot for the band. Let's hope HTD digs out more archive stuff of that quality.

Subject: Moby Grape
Date: Wed, 7 Jul 1999 11:22:24 EDT

I thought this may be of interest. One of the best of the early San Francisco  bands of the 60's Moby Grape are back together with at least 3 of the 5  original members, Skip Spence one of the founders and also an original member  of Jefferson Airplane died just recently.

Of interest to this newsletter is  that they will be going over to jolly ole England in September the dates are:

Sep 29 - Brook Hall,Southhammpton
Sep 30 - London, Astoria Theatre
Oct 01 - Bilston/Birmingham, The Robin 2
Oct 02 - Whitley Bay/Newcastle, The Dome

They have been playing together for a little over a year, when they last played they had Sam Andrews from Big Brother & the Holding Company on guitar & vocals & James Preston from the Sons of Champlin on drums. [The Sons also have a killer new live cd out on Grateful Dead Records]. If you get a chance go see Moby Grape,they do a mixture of old and  new tunes. Also just released is a tribute cd to Skip Spence's solo album from 1969 called Oar; the tribute cd is called More Oar with Robert Plant, REM, Beck and others.I just thought this might be of interest.

Subject: Burma OUT!! The London JUNTA CONCERT Demonstration

Burma OUT!! The London JUNTA CONCERT Demonstration

The article from the Ealing Gazette said that "scores of banner waving people" would show up today (Sunday) outside ACTON TOWN HALL in west London. To demonstrate against those artistes who were supporting the military junta of Burma.

While there were not "scores" of people, there were enough to impress the hall to bring in extra securitry.(strangely enough, someone that I already knew) to the event. And although mostly arriving late, the local and national press were well represented.

"We want to denounce the performers. Because during the student uprising of 1988 they gained a reputation for supporting the pro-democracy movement. But now money has made them "changed their tune" and play for the military." Said one demonstrator, himself having spent 7 nasty years in the worst of conditions inside one of Slorc's  "guest houses"...And with 3 of those years spent in solitary confinement, he had a right to be ANGRY!!

"Seven pop stars (Oh no !! Not pop stars!! yuk!! ed) are coming over to play", said Muang Muang Hein, the Chairman of the Myanmar Association Fund, who also holds a passport given to him by the junta.

Many anti junta representatives were at Acton today. And made this was a most embarrassing for those attending,arranging and performing.

There was little to discuss. Everyone who was there, including some last minute volunteers from the locality, and the Ealing Trade Union knew exactly why the rattles were shaking and the trumpets were blazing. Outside the hall, not inside.

The performers were all handed special leaflets from the Music Industry Human Rights Association. And as the word filtered through to those inside, presumeably from the embassy. Suddenly the protesters were the centre of attention.

Two so called friendly camera men (boys really) wanted to take everyones picture. So of course we all gave them what they wanted, or at least those not in danger from the murderous regime had a anti junta field day. With fists in the air, Europeans stopped these liars. (They said they supported Aung San Suu Kyi to theirs deaths.) Stoppedtheir cameras from recording  the vital work of the demonstrators.  For junta spies they were,  not recording for history but recording for revenge.

But this was a deeply embarrassinng experience for those behind the concert. For it did more to expose the workings of the junta to the local media, than it did entertain . Or gain their revenge.

For  by that time, most of the audience had to push their way through pickett lines and banners. Where placards dogged their entrance. And with them they took paper, lots of paper. Telling them all why they should not be there, and especially why they should not be enjoying themselves at such a hypocritical and politically (and musically?) dubious event.

Music is like everything else. If it's pop, it's also short lived. Maybe this is a reflection of modern junta.thinking. In that it will not be around for much longer.

We also used the event tp program the next Burma Out!! demonstration outside the Australian High Commission London.

Freedom is both the means to tell the truth, and the ability. Presumeably that's why this author prefers his music playedby those with integrity. And not by artists who lower themselves and theor profession by performing for mass murderers and dope dealing criminals. Maybe they should be better employed building heroin refineries for the military  They certainly did not impress either those  outside, nor Free Burma Radio, who managed, through our clever ex prisoner of the regime, to get an interview  by moblie telephone with the "big star of the show" and who suddenly lost his voice.

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>.  Meanwhile, here are some Canterbury related excerpts you may enjoy.

I've just done an enormous update of our Voiceprint page <http://www.artist-shop.com/voiceprt> which includes a whole slew of new releases that have come out in the last month or two as well as a good number of forthcoming releases.  Here are a few of them.

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.

Goddess Trance/Electric Shiatsu - Gilli Smyth as "space whisper" poet and partner to Daevid Allen has been an original member and integral part of Gong since their formation in Paris in 1967. She has contributed vocals on over thirty Gong albums and has recorded and toured as Mother Gong producing a trilogy of "cosmic feminist tracks". The Goddess T. band comprises Gilli Smyth, Tone Orlando, Nick Spacetree with occasional guest Daevid Allen, they have been playing gigs and events around Byron Bay in Australia for the past three years.  This album is a deep exploration of resonances and frequencies that reach into the body like sound acupuncture and stir buried emotions. Whilst the album has modern grooves (dub, dance, ambient) its aim is not to fit into one particular category, but to explore different sounds, rhythms and frequencies, that may well be extra-terrestrial.

John G. Perry/Sunset Wading - John G. Perry is best known as the vocalist and bassist for Caravan, Quantum Jump and the Rupert Hine band. This is his debut solo album produced by Rupert Hine and originally released in 1976. Each background sound draft was recorded in The Lake District over a period of several months in real time. The line up includes percussion by Mike Giles (King Crimson), viola and flute by Geoffrey Richardson (Caravan), string arrangements by Simon Jeffes (Penguin Cafe Orchestra), contributions from Rupert Hine and a guest appearance by Roger Glover of Deep Purple.

On our ESD/Northside/Omnium page <http://www.artist-shop.com/esd> you'll find the impending release of Henry Cow/Unrest (Remastered). A newly-remastered edition of the second Henry Cow album from 1972. 8 page full color booklet includes rare photos and additional notes. Expect this to be released mid to late July.

On our Camel Productions page <http://www.artist-shop.com/camel> and in our New Label section <http://www.artist-shop.com/newlabel/index4.htm> we have an older release that we're just now able to make available, Sabah Habas Mustapha/Denpasar Moon. Made available to us through Colin Bass himself is his solo debut as his world music alter ego, Sabah Habas Mustapha. "For the pleasure of music lovers looking Far-Eastwards in all directions the younger brother of the legendary 3 Mustaphas 3 creates a new genre of Global Pop. His innovative mix of South East Asian influences focuses on the urban dance rhythms of Dangdut and the gentle, meditative sounds of Degung, with surprising hommages to Zairian Soukous, East African Taarab and North American Country music.   Recorded in Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur this CD contains the original version of the famous Asian hit, DENPASAR MOON, plus 9 more songs of love and happiness, the beauties of nature, the dangers of corruption and the transience of existence, including the first time ever release of the Jakarta version of the 3M3 live favourite SINGE TEMA."

On our import pre-order page <http://www.artist-shop.com/catalog/imports/preorder.htm> you'll find:

Two CD compilation of the finest recordings by Daevid Allen with his space/prog outfit Gong. Includes 'The Pot Head Pixies', 'Squeezing Sponges Over Policemans Heads' and 'Sold To The Highest Buddha'. 22 tracks total.
