Further to my report on the Canterbury Festival last issue, Canterburian Steve Knights sent me a couple of press clippings from the Kentish Gazette, covering the festival. Steve also notes that I forgot to mention "O Caroline" as part of the Caravan medley. Perhaps that's because I wish they didn't play it.

The first article (from July 27th) is entitled "Concert faces axe in dispute over security", in which we learn that the festival was almost called off (so the paper says), due to the Swale council being late at granting the festival a public entertainment licence.

The second article is a review of the festival (from the August 3rd edition). It's entitled "Retro heaven on return to the Seventies" and written by one Kevin Mudge-Wood. I quote it here in its entirety.

"More than 2,000 people took advantage of sunny skies and the beautiful setting of Mount Ephraim gardens at Herne Hill as the first Canterbury Sound Festival gave the music of the seventies underground another airing.
A stage in front of the lake faced a natural amphitheatre which gave picknicking families, veteran rock fans and the younger generation a perfect vantage point from which to enjoy music which ranged from the rootsy authenticity of the City Blues Band and good time R'n'B of Rubber Biscuit to the progressive rock of headliners Caravan.
The festival attracted people from all over the UK and Europe and a promoter who flew in from Japan.
Seventies acts which drew warm applause from the relaxed crowd included Welsh band Man with a blend of guitar-driven rock and psychedelia.
Arthur Brown's surprisingly gentle set drew on eastern influences and used violin, cello and percussion to showcase his deep, resonant voice and a taste for the theatrical which saw him skipping Pied Piper-like through a delighted audience as he brought his performance to a high with his 1969 hit Fire.
Colosseum provided a fusion of jazz and rock, driven by Jon Hiseman's intricate drumming contrasting with space rockers Gong, whose charismatic guitarist and singer Daevid Allen drew the crowd forward and heightened the sense of anticipation as the light began to fade in time for Caravan.
The local favourites were welcomed like old friends as they brought the day to a climax with a nostalgic run through their impressive back catalogue, topped off by their 20-minute classic Nine Feet Underground.
The festival has taken three years to get off the ground and Caravan guitarist Pye Hastings was delighted at its success.
He said: "The festival is a dream come true for us. It is something we have been working towards for years and at last it has happened.
"I feel it is the beginning of something for the area and eventually we would like to have an arts and music weekend every year in a similar vein to the Cropedy Festival staged annually by Fairport Convention".
Mark Powell, one of the organisers, said: "There will be another festival next year and the target date is July 14.
"All the bands who took part were in great form, there were no crowd problems at all".

* * * * *

As an aside, I would like to draw your attention towards a new release premiered at the festival. It is a double-CD compilation of Caravan's best work from the period 1969-75, entitled "Where But For Caravan Would I" (Decca/Universal 524 755-2). As previously mentioned in WR, it contains a few gems: a previously unreleased song, from the "If I Could..." sessions, entitled "A Day In The Life Of Maurice Haylett", which has fine singing from Pye and a superb organ solo by Dave, all in the classic Caravan vein; also of note are versions of "Golf Girl" and "Love To Love You" with additional flute playing from the inimitable Jimmy Hastings. Also appreciated are mono mixes of the four best songs from the debut album, which because of the weird stereo panning of the original LP, I find nicer than the original mixes. Otherwise, the compilation is what you'd expect, with all the classics like "Nine Feet Underground", "Love In Your Eye", "A Hunting We Shall Go", "Where But For Caravan Would I", "Winter Wine" and the New Symphonia live version of "For Richard". All in all, the perfect starting point for a Caravan collection for anyone who doesn't yet have all the individual albums (which will be reissued in the coming months with a wealth of bonus material).

I am happy to report that more and more musicians from the Canterbury scene are now online, most notably and recently Hugh Hopper and Elton Dean. Hugh is premiering his new quartet in Holland next month, as well as working on various projects - including the next Hughscore. As for Elton, exciting news come in the shape of an upcoming double (at least) CD set which will consist of various unreleased recordings from the 70s to the present day. As for his current projects, the major one in the near future will take place in December for Radio Roma (Italy), celebrating 40 years of free jazz. Other upcoming archival releases include a Mark Hewins/Elton Dean improvised set (showcasing the most lyrical side of Elton's playing - superb stuff) and more Soft Heap live recordings from the eighties.

I also asked Elton about the eagerly awaited reissues of his classic 70s albums. Well, it appears that his superb quartet LP "They All Be On This Old Road" and both Ninesense albums are still the property of Ogun Records, a label operated by basssist Harry Miller's widow Hazel. According to Elton, she is not necessarily aware of the sustained interest in these albums. So what I suggest to do, for people who are interested (and even others - please help!), is to flood Ogun with letters requesting CD reissues of this stuff. This would also put an end to the debate on bootlegging: proper CD reissues, possibly with bonus material, would certainly be the best solution for everyone...

The address of Ogun Records is:

Many thanx to Aymeric for his comments from Canterbury - particularly evocative to me as a long term listener, but more so having been at school in the centre of town in the late 60's. Does anyone remember the arts centre/club somewhere off the main street where we used to sneak out to??

More to the point, does anyone else have comments from the festival - anything, however short, is much much appreciated by us long distance readers of WR. Out of 2000 attendees aren't there any others itching to air their thoughts??

Please bother to bother - your bothered brethran in Botnia

Greetings, Aymeric!

OK, you've challenged us Yanks to be more active with gig reviews and all so here goes...

Daevid Allen and University of Errors played a wonderful show here in Chicago this past Saturday night. The gig received excellent advance press ("Critic's Choice" in the local free paper) and was extremely well-attended. The room holds 200 and it was very nearly full. The opening act by the way had been hand-picked by University bassist Michael Clare and they played an excellent and highly energetic set. The name of the band is Euphone and on CD they're a duo, but live it expanded to a trio that sounded like everything from Pierre's Gong to post-modern stuff such as Tortoise (on a heavy dose of speed). The drummer in particular was incredibly fast and precise (he apparently composes all of the material).

The stage was set for the Errorites when Daevid strolled out and recited a warped rendition of Yeats' Innesfree. Daevid had his college graduation mortar hat on for the "lesson". The band then joined him and kicked through rousing versions of Money Doesn't Make It, Iced Tea Overture, Pinky Psycho's Party Song, and the hypnotic Ocean Mother all from their two CD's. The second one is particularly outstanding by the way and sold in copious quantities at the end of the set. They also did a hilarious "Prog rock dance contest" (worst dancer won a CD) and a take-off on Crimson's 20th Century Schizoid Man that had everyone howling with laughter. The band was tight and energetic with guitarist Josh Pollock leaping around like a young Pete Townshend. Daevid finished the night off in usual fashion by flashin' his member to the audience members.

The crowd was a healthy mix of youth and older Gong fans, and there were even a fair number of  females (normally extinct at progressive shows) in attendance. The music is very accessible, unpretentious, and downright danceable. In short there was something for everyone and the audience was extremely appreciative. What a night!

It's nice to see Daevid and the band relating so strongly to a younger audience as this gives us hope for the continuation of this music to a whole new generation.

Take care and I hope to see you next year at the Canterbury Fest!!

Cheers, David

Hello Aymeric...

Have not written in a while... I was browsing through the used CD's the other day, when I happened upon "Stealer of Years" by a re-formed Wild Turkey... Though this may not exactly be considered Canterbury, I have the utmost respect for Glen Cornick (formerly of Tull)... I will say, as I listen to this collection, that I am extremely impressed... so if any of you are looking for something good, that you haven't heard... check it out.. .I love it...

I have enjoyed (and will continue to enjoy) the Calyx web-site. After subscribing to 'Facelift' in the early 90s, and witnessing various revivals of the bands involved, I thought the Canterbury scene had dissipated by now! Wrong!

Anyway, although I'm old enough to remember seeing National Health supporting Steve Hillage on the 'Green Tour' and Henry Cow while Dagmar was still with them, some of the more current music is more reminiscent of the Canterbury 'sound'. In particular, Squarepusher's 'Port Rhombus EP' and 'Feed me weird things'; I'm not the only with this opinion.  Stereolab and the Chicago-based band Tortoise are others, although Tortoise railed at the suggestion they 'sounded like Mike Oldfield' in a Wire interview.  

Keep up the good work!

>Machine live stuff. There's always something new to look forward to...

On a related note, does any label have any plans for a Soft Machine box set of the first few albums?  Say, through Seven or even Softs?  I've been holding off replacing my scratchy LPs figuring something like this was sure to come, but I haven't seen anything.  If not, can people lead me to existing CDs that are well-mastered?

Date: 11 Aug 00 13:03:21 -0700

Dear Friends Musical,

Well, yes, a good topic the Henry Cow 5 or 10 CD set!!

If someone can muster up a 5CD set of Faust(a band I believe is highly overrated here and one that without all the Henry Cow fanfare/bill sharing would probably not even get any Canterbury mention)then a Henry Cow 5 or 10 CD set can't be all that difficult to conjure up mentally.

Chris Cutler has personally and in this live forum made mention of having over 100 tapes from the various and sundry appearances of the Cow herd, so to amass a 10 CD set from those tapes shouldn't present that much of a problem.

I truly believe that with time permitting, a wonderful box set can be assembled without much effort at all...Isn't HC's main platform improvising and if that is true, then what is so hard to fathom about putting together a set that is pretty much all improv? No need for alot of studio trickery and the beautiful thing about Henry Cow is the rawness of their sound and the very randomness of it as well.

Material like Greasey Truckers, the Henry Cow live material found on Concerts, the outtakes seen/heard on Unrest/Legend...cmon folks, I seriously doubt that the quality would be lacking even on a project that was of a 10 CD magnitude. I would rather buy pseudo questionably recorded material than to buy the same releases in different remixed forms.

Then again, maybe die hard fans only would buy this(I seriously doubt that 1000-2000 copies wouldn't sell out), but to compare this idea with an artist who did just this, Klaus Schulze, makes the idea a little more appealing and feasible, at least in my twisted mind. Additionally, the multiple CD sets of archive material by Ash Ra Tempel, King Crimson (including the special KCCC releases), The Stooges 7CD Fun House sessions set, Fleetwood Mac's recent Blue Horizon sessions 6CD set, The Grateful Dead Dick Pick's series, so on and so forth, I really think that this idea would take off as alot of die hard fans just eat this kind of archival stuff up.

I am a hardcore listener/owner of Klaus Schulze's vast catalogue and for those who don't know, he has put out 50 such special CD's from his archives...and every set sold out with most being 2000 copy limited editions. The first three sets(10, 10, 25 CD's)sold so well, Mr. Klaus came along and compiled those three sets and dug up another 5 CD's worth of material and issued, get this, a 50CD set!!!

And to make matters worse, Klaus Schulze is now offering a totally new 10 CD set of currently recorded music. Talk about a trend.

So, there might be dissenters here but I have also gotten a few mails directly asking when I am going to start taking orders for the Henry Cow box set. :0)

And a jolly hello to Mark Hewins while I'm ranting and cheers/compliments on the fantastic CD by your band Research called Perpetual City...to all wrattlers, I highly recommend this fine piece.

Have nice days,

Dear Aymeric,

I've been subscribed to What's Rattlin for over a year... this is a belated Thank You!

I found my way to this music via the "prog rock" vein and have been following Gong, Richard Sinclair (I had the pleasure of doing sound for Richard in San Francisco about 8 years ago), National Health and many more for years now.   

I enjoy the way this music is played with total disregard to the borders
emposed on music by the industry. I think "Time is the Key" is the first
Canterbury LP I bought (back in the early 80's) but I'm still learning.

Keep up the great work! Thanks for all you do and Best Wishes,

When you get a few minutes spare. Take a read on the "wild side" ;-)

BBC TV Digital : The BBC "Conspiracy Office"? (the mind doth boggle at such an ironic title).. Have been over to see my pal in Cal author David Hoffman, who covered the Okla City Bombing.. And I have a song about that on the net? Accusing Clinton? Added to what (I reminded the BBC) of what their own reporter
Gavin Esler,  said about "the the" Come Back Kid? That "before the bombing, Clinton couldn't raise enough interest to fill a meeting in a barn. And after,
he became the most popular president in American history"?

Have a listen?

How nice of them to publish all the "asides" that were written during the interview between friends. Such as Pete saying "Grahm Bond got hit by a train, which is not a very healthy experience".

Italy's premier glossy rock magazine, the best one, as it focuses upon "the era", and not on anything that came after, by the neocopyistas. (As if anything in western world music were to be considered "original") of the best period in western contempory music.

TEMPI DISPARI published "An in-depth article on the career of PETE BROWN" this month..

"An interview with PETE BROWN - An in depth interview conducted on Leap Years extra day, the 29th of February  2000.With Pete Brown, lyricist for the Cream, by his long standing friend and bassist from Pete's band PIBLOKTO,  and bassist on "The Art School Dance" 1971 album, creative musician / political journalist Roger Bunn"

If anyone wishes for a copy by Email. And as I am the "proud author" of this distinctive piece of literature. And playing both Ebass, Dbass, and Acou guitar on the above. I am sure that Italy won't mind any rock historian having it in your In Tray..

Of course one always likes to make history in other ways. And how nice it was to awaken the world to the horrific fact that Aus's local smack dealers (86%) were sending an apartheid team to the Games next month. But that's another (in depth) story.. ;-)

The MODefence seems to think it's state secret that the Regiment (SAS) are in Colombia?  Amazing!! We pay taxes for this flying standard? Far F'ing out man ;-)
