Just in case What's Rattlin have missed it - Slapp Happy will be playing their second ever UK gig on June 13th at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, South Bank, London.  Their last and until recently only appearance was about twelve years ago at the ICA. The original trio - Dagmar Krause, Petr Blegvad, Anthony Moore - are in place, and the group are recently returned from their first ever tour - a sell out - in Japan.

Peter Blegvad is also playing the Hay Festival, Hay on Wye, on Saturday June 3rd and has an exhibition of artwork from his Leviathan cartoon strip at the town's Globe Gallery.  Both events are part of a soft-launch for publication of his BOOK OF LEVIATHAN by Sort Of Books.  The book - a 160pp full colour hardback (nice object!) - will go on sale through Penguin in November (£12.99) but signed and numbered advance copies are available from the publisher (me!) for £15, including postage, from July.  (SORT OF BOOKS : PO Box 18678, London NW3 2FL).

Hope this isn't too much of an advert but I thought people might be interested!

Hello to all,

I had the pleasure of attending the Festival International Musiques Actuelles Victoriaville last weekend. Located in Victoriavile, PQ, Canada, the 17th FIMAV was a doozy to usher in the next (western) millenium.

Of special interest to Canterbury fans were the performances by Chris Cutler, Fred Frith, and Tim Hodgkinson.

Tim Hodgkinson performed in an improvising trio called KONK PACK; along with Roger Turner on Drums and Thomas Lenn on analogue synthi, Konk Pack proceeded to make a wild racket....2 very long pieces, with TH playing flat guitar mainly, briefly switching to Clarinet late in the performance. TH also performed with OSSATURA, an Italian improvising/electoacoustic ensemble; TH only played clarinet for this performance, appearing about halfway through the set.

Fred Frith performed in a trio with Jean-Pierre Drouet on Percussion & Louis Sclavis on Reeds; while not as raucous as Konk Pack, they were definitely enchanting.

Chris Cutler was the busiest of the 3: CC was the Drummer for Dutch band Palinckx, who turned an extremely varied performance, one of my favorites of the festival....modern interpretations of classical pieces, and a really moving version of "The Model" to boot.  CC also was the percussionist in the "orchestra" for the North American premiere of the David Thomas musical staging, "Mirror Man." A strange take on Americana, "Mirror Man" featured a strong ensemble cast, including Linda Thompson singing some very emotional cabaret-style pieces.

Near the the end of the Festival, Fred Frith & Chris Cutler performed a duo gig, touching on the extremely raucous to the very quiet and gentle.

Not really Canterbury-related, Cecil Taylor closed out the fest with a stirring solo piano show.

All in all, quite wonderful.
Mike Rae.

Date: 25 May 00 16:26:23 -0700

Hulloder Friends,

Just read Aymeric's mention thru WR156 about him coming stateside this summer, to my home state of Pennyslvania and stuff and since I've relocated my carcass to California, I will just say in agreement with A.L. that it is important for people to get together in person if time/geography allows it and sadly for me, it won't this time.

I have had a Wrattler who I met thru the pages over to my house, hung out, discussed and raved about CD's etc and it is fulfilling to have that human interaction. I typically invite anyone who might be having travel plans in the west coast, bay area of California region, that I know thru WR, and the Fred Frith list to just contact me should they be in the area for this exact reason.

I must confess that for reasons family and the fact that since I was 14, going to shows/concerts/clubs(and after hours clubs)/rehearsal studios/festivals/etc that I very rarely attend shows anymore due to this glut of happenings in my past and the fact that I have two kids and a wife that like it when I stay home and truthfully, I have had my share in all the crazy years of my youth(i am 40 next month)that I really don't have an overwhelming desire to do the concert thing that much anymore.  Point here is that, although repetitious, I highly counsel anyone who desires to get with me in person on the Cali coast to do so...

Other than that, I just hope everyone enjoys this Aymerica visit and fuck, I am a little bummed out that I won't be able to make it cos in general, I guess I would really make an exception in this case should the visit have been one in my area of the country.

Have good times all,

GONG Live at the Hammersmith Palais, London
A global concert Netcast hosted by I-gig.com
Wednesday 14th June, 5.30pm GMT

The ever enigmatic and influential GONG will be gigging on the global underground with a special Netcast Concert, recorded on May 7th @ Hammersmith Palais in London. The show was the culmination of a month long European tour, performing at packed out venues to fans in France, Norway and Britain, celebrating the magnificence of their 32nd year in existence.  
Seeded in Paris during the 1968 student riots, Gong wove their original magic with an imaginative mix of jazz fusion, eastern/world music, tape loops, space funk, jazz house & psychedelic electro-acoustic all laced with self-deprecating humour - and now their underground influence is huge. Their typically unusual mix of diverse energies creates an intriguing blend of songs and elegant improvising power with a sweet laughing centre that melts all resistance into a magic moment. Trance funk with altitude!

The band's veteran members are joined onstage by saxophonist Theo Travis, Chris Taylor on percussion and Basil Brooks and Gwyo Zepix from 70's synth ensemble Zorch. This Netcast concert showcases brand new material from the highly acclaimed new album "Zero to Infinity" (now available on One Eyed Salmon records c/o Snapper Music) but the crew will also be plundering the treasure trove of their three decade history.  Kabuki theatre, extravagant costumes, and an irrevent sense of mischief are keys to the magic of the Godfathers of modern pyschedelia. Kaleidoscopic psychedelic visuals providing scintillating bursts of colour come courtesy of decor crew Visual Bliss. This events marks the band's second netcast.

On the I-Gig web site viewers can also see a specially recorded interview with Gong veterans Daevid Allen, Gili Smyth, Didier Malherbe and Mike Howlett in conversation with Jack Kane of Record Collector discussing a million years of Planet Gong!  The band have, in later life, become icons to many younger artists with their prototype use of hypnotic, repetitive beats and Eastern vibes, influencing modern trance and techno artists like Eat Static and the Ozric Tentacles.

Gong at Glastonbury
Sunday 25th June
Avalon Stage (9pm)

The unstoppable 62-year-old Daevid Allenís has announced a 9 date British tour with his new band The University of Errors this autumn. Meanwhile the full Gong will be performing at several major British summer festivals.  

Gong will headline the Avalon Stage on Sunday evening at Glastonbury, the largest festival in Europe. The weekend event runs from 23rd to 25th June 2000 at Glastonbury on Tor, Somerset, UK. This will be a welcome return to the gang who played at the first ever Glastonbury Festival nearly 30 years ago in 1971.  The band are hoping to be joined on stage with guest violinist Nigel Kennedy who revealed himself as an avid fan at a recent Gong gig.  

Radio Gnome is back on air, so tune in and watch your mind go virtual!

Hello, all,

Regarding this inquiry from the latest WR:

The "Disconforme" web page is sure advertising "Dedicated To You" and "You Are Here", along with Centipede. Do you you who, if anyone, has those two Tippett albums on CD?

These Tippett CDs are available from Wayside Music. Go to http://www.waysidemusic.com/, click on 'Catalogs', then 'View Update Catalog'.

Is there any more info on Pierre, like playing some New York shows? I've seen Pierre play 3 times and was amazed by his playing & at the last Daevid Allen Gong show's in New York Pierre was supposed to be playing,but for whatever reasons he did not, I was bummed out that he was not going to be playing, but was very surprised at his replacement whose name escapes me right now,he turned out to be a dynamite drummer. But I would still love to see Pierre play again,any info would be helpful either  thru What's Rattlin, or to me personally at spacetunes@aol.com

Subject: Canterbury reissues

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 excerpts that may be of interest to Canterbury fans.

While not a Canterbury musician, Phil Manzanera and Robert Wyatt are good friends and collaborators, so it deserves some mention that we have a new
page up for Phil's Expression Records <http://www.artist-shop.com/expression>. Both Diamond Head and Vozero feature significant Robert Wyatt participation. Also Quiet Sun/Mainstream is a classic, not to mention it's live follow up, 801 Live. All of these can be found on this page.

Voiceprint <http://www.artist-shop.com/voiceprt> has delivered a whole slew of new releases as well as news about forthcoming releases including a number of Canterbury reissues!  Let's start with the new releases:

Pip Pyle/Equipe Out
Erstwhile member of "The Canterbury Scene", Pip Pyle has played drums with Gong, Hatfield and the North, National Health, In Cahoots, etc. Pip moved to France to join Gong in 1971 and was featured on drums and breakage on Camembert Electrique. This was the album which landed them a deal with Virgin Records. Pip assembled a group of musicians for this project, whose backgrounds included Soft Machine and Gong. As a result Equipe Out is a startling fusion of jazz, rock and beyond.

Tim Blake/Crystal Machine
Keyboard player Tim Blake first met various members of Group X (later Hawkwind), at drama school in the late '60's. Tim then moved to France to join Gong, initially as a sound engineer, and then as a member of the band. Tim Blake's innovative synthesizer and keyboard playing became an integral part of the Gong sound and he featured on three of their most popular albums; Flying Teapot, Angel's Egg, and You.   After leaving Gong, Tim formed Crystal Machine, which was a highly elaborate set up of banks of synthesizers and electronic gadgetry combined with stunning laser and lighting effects. Two pioneering albums were recorded and released on the Egg label in the late '70's. These were Crystal Machine and New Jerusalem, and they received high critical acclaim with chart status on the continent. Tim then became a member of Hawkwind for the Live '79 and Levitation albums, before returning to France to work on solo projects.
soundbite - <http://www.artist-shop.com/voiceprt/crystal.ram>

Anthony Moore/World Service
Anthony began his recording career working in experimental film and music. He released two avant garde solo albums in the early seventies.  When Polydor Germany refused to release the third project, he teamed up with Dagmar Krause and Peter Blegvad to form Slapp Happy who joined forces with German pioneers Faust to release their debut album in 1972 (Sort Of...). By 1974, the band had signed to Virgin, aquired a cult following of fans, critics and musicians such as Henry Cow and Robert Wyatt. Anthony departed in 1975, whereby Virgin failed to turn him into a pop star. He then signed to cutting edge indie label Do - It, releasing Flying Doesn't Help in 1979 and World Service in 1981. He eventually found more lucrative work writing lyrics for Pink Floyd, when original member Roger Waters departed. Similar in style to other mavericks like John Cale and Kevin Ayers with many lyrical twists.
soundbite - <http://www.artist-shop.com/voiceprt/service.ram>

The following are Voiceprint titles that are scheduled for release in the
near future!

Slapp Happy/Camera
Slapp Happy were formed in Hamburg in 1972, with Dagmar Krause on vocals, Anthony Moore on guitar, vocals and keyboards and Peter Blegvad on guitar and vocals. They signed to Virgin Records in 1974, releasing their debut Slapp Happy (itself a re-record of Casablanca Moon) and then teaming up with avant rockers Henry Cow for Desperate Straits. The following year the collaboration produced In Praise Of Learning, causing the band to implode, with Blegvad being fired, Moore leaving and Krause remaining as vocalist for further records and tours. Slapp Happy reformed in 1982 to release a single and play dates at London's ICA. In 1990, the trio reformed when Blegvad and Moore were commissioned to write an opera, Camera, which was broadcast on television in 1993. This saw Dagmar as a lone individual figure struggling against the nightmare of bureaucratic intrusion.  By 1998, Geoff Travis' Banana label issued Ca Va,with distribution through Branson's V2. This garnered widespread praise, being described as a cross between Portishead, Yoko Ono and the Canterbury Sound. This year Slapp Happy have confirmed dates for shows in Japan amidst rumours of a remix of Ca Va surfacing. This release of Camera includes previously unreleased material from Blegvad, Moore and Krause alias Slapp Happy. Remastered, with specially designed artwork overseen by Peter Blegvad.  Other featured musicians include The Balanescu Quartet, Terry Edwards and Kate St. John.

Anthony Moore/Flying Doesn't Help
Anthony Moore began his career working in experimental film and music, releasing two avant garde solo albums in the early '70's.  When Polydor Germany refused to release the third project, he teamed up with Dagmar Krause and Peter Blegvad to form Slapp Happy, whose debut album 'Sort Of' was released in 1972.  After two years collaborating with Henry Cow and Virgin, the band imploded and Anthony embarked on an erratic solo career. 'Flying Doesn't Help' was originally released in 1979 and includes contributions from Peter Blegvad and Laurie Latham. Two further albums followed, 'World Service,' in 1981 and 'Only Choice,' in 1984. Anthony began to write lyrics for Pink Floyd after Roger Waters left.

And recently available in our general imports section

UK reissue of the solo debut for the former pop singer dubbed 'the face' who chose a different route with this release, collaborating with members of the Soft Machine and Blossom Toes to pursue a progressive jazz direction. Also featured on the album is pianist and future husband Keith Tippett.

Reissue of 1971 Vertigo jazz/rock album featuring members of Working Week, Bad Company, King Crimson, Nucleus & Soft Machine. High Resolution - 96 KHz-24 bit digital transfer. New liner notes & photographs.

Reissue of 1970 Polydor jazz-rock album that also featured Marc Charig and Elton Dean.
