This CD is just about to be released by Cuneiform Records (tomorrow, if I remember correctly). Of course, having contributed some liner notes, I got a copy a little earlier, and upon discovering the fantastic packaging created by the "Doo-Dooettes", a.k.a. Tom Recchion (sculptures, art direction & design) and Fredrik Nilsen (photography), I felt compelled to write them a congratulary note.

It turns out that Tom has been involved with designing quite a few covers for albums by well-known clients, most notably R.E.M., and is also a longtime Canterbury music fan:

"I've been a huge Robert Wyatt fan since I was 15 when my friend Fredrik Nilsen (he took the photos on the Mole package) and I went to see the Jimi Hendrix Experience in Anaheim and the Soft Machine, Eric Burdon and the Animals and the Eire Apparent were opening acts. The Soft Machine were absolutely stupifying. This was before their first album was even released and Robert appeared to be playing naked especially when the pink or red lights were shining on him. When the group started playing  you could see that everyone thought that the drummer was naked cause everyone was coming together to whisper something in each other's ear... And these were the days when one stayed seated in ones chair and didn't move about or stand up dance or even rush the stage. But I was hooked since then. His work feels so personal to me... It rarely misses a mark. He's an artist I understand completely. He sent me a copy of Rock Bottom after I wrote him a letter I think expressing my concern for his health after his fall and I've had some subsequent contact. And well I could go on and on but I won't. You get the picture. This cover was done as my tribute to Robert and all the great work he's done. What I wanted to do with this cover was to recreate the cover exactly but in 3D and to show the scene from various points of view. It was a lot of work but Fred and I (as the Doo-Dooettes, primarialy the name of our improvisational music outfit but also works for a variety of other projects we've done together) were happy to do it".

As for "Smoke Signals", the actual CD, of course I urge you to buy it. But I hope some Rattlers will send their own reviews, mine could be accused of being somewhat biased, I suppose.




7–27 June 2001
on the South Bank, London (U.K.)

With most of the artists now confirmed, the Royal Festival Hall is thrilled to unveil the stellar line-up confirmed to date for ROBERT WYATT’S MELTDOWN 2001 (7 – 27 June). Driven by his desire to create an event where other languages and innovative musical visions can thrive, the engine of the legendary Soft Machine and vocalist of countless devastating solo recordings curates a festival guaranteed to produce surprise discoveries alongside show stopping legends. His choices convey the man’s idiosyncratic loves, personal history and enduring commitment to political causes.

One of rock’s most gifted guitar giants, Pink Floyd’s DAVID GILMOUR, plays his first solo gig in London for over a decade, inspiringly gate-crashed by SPARKLEHORSE, Mark Linkous’ lo-fi indie champions (22 June RFH). TRICKY performing with special guest SAUL WILLIAMS (23 June RFH), is another of the most wanted men in music, glittering in a line-up that also boasts one of the undisputed giants of jazz, MAX ROACH (21 June RFH), joined by the acclaimed pianist MATTHEW SHIPP & bassist WILLIAM PARKER, making their London debut. Two of Jazz’s biggest influences are perfectly paired when JOHN SURMAN’s sax innovations meet JACK DEJOHNETTE’s percussive brilliance (7 June QEH); and Wyatt’s mix also includes BAABA MAAL (27 June RFH), arguably the most spectacular talent to emerge from Africa in recent years and a crucial exponent of 21st century World Music.

Masters of satire and new technology, THE RESIDENTS, bring their retrospective show to the QEH on 9 June, while THE RAINCOATS reform for Wyatt’s Meltdown in a bill with GORKY’S ZYGOTIC MYNCI (10 June QEH), surely the true sound of Wales in 2001 and perhaps Soft Machine’s closest progeny.

There’s no shortage of new sounds and collaborations as well. TERRY RILEY, one of the most significant US musicians and composers, stretches the meaning of music and explores the possibilities of the avant-garde in the QEH on 20 June with his Terry Riley Allstars; while MASSACRE (17 June QEH), a reluctant avant-garde super group comprised of BILL LASWELL, FRED FRITH and CHARLES HAYWARD are an essential component of Wyatt’s fantasy.

Artists and performances below the radar but ripe for discovery include: Israeli-born MEIRA ASHER’S BODY LAB featuring GUY HARRIES, a difficult passionate work that will rivet audiences on 22 June; the bold and original Norwegian songstress, ANJA GARBAREK (daughter of Jan Garbarek) on 12 June; and the muscular French Jazz of the female LABARRIERE-KASSAP DUO, the latter in a double bill with the highly acclaimed PHILIP CATHERINE QUARTET on 20 June, all in the Purcell Room.

Free events in the RFH Ballroom include two major days of music and activities with timely political resonance; the REFUGEE ARTS FESTIVAL (23 June RFH Ballroom) giving a much needed platform to some of the great artists whose circumstances too rarely allow them the opportunity to share their talents; and the ARAB-ISRAELI CONNECTIONS DAY (24 June RFH Ballroom) sees two torn communities unite. These events reflect Wyatt’s long standing passion for highlighting injustice and suffering.

One of the Meltdown highlights on 22 June is the debut screening of award winning film, Promises. Scored by ROBERT WYATT himself this compelling film goes right to the heart of the conflict in the Middle East, from where comedian MARK THOMAS returns to present his own shrewd take on governmental and corporate exploitation on 24 June in the Purcell Room.

More free entertainment comes courtesy of the RAY GELATO GIANTS, embodying classic swing, jumping originals and ‘Rat Pack’ Vegas style in the RFH Ballroom on the evening of Friday 22 June.

There are a couple of familiar faces in Wyatt’s Meltdown too. KEITH TIPPETT’s PIANO QUINTET perform Linukea at the QEH on 14 June and ELVIS COSTELLO, the man responsible for Wyatt’s most memorable chart hit, Shipbuilding, performs an unmissable gig (26 June RFH) with STEVE NIEVE, one of the Attractions, and IVOR CUTLER gives some of his best as a special guest. Costello, Meltdown Director 1995, surfaces again as just one of an exceptional line up who’ll be paying tribute to the current curator in Robert Wyatt’s Soup Songs (24 June RFH), which also features ANNIE WHITEHEAD, Suede’s BRETT ANDERSON and a host of special guest artists.

Subject: Daevid Allen : The missing years / "Bare Arms"
Date: Mon, 14 May 2001 10:19:13 +0100

Mihra Records

Daevid Allen : The Missing Years : Dreaming the Magic of your Maya.
Circa 1969 Paris.

Side 1

1/ Loving Spaceship.
2/ Women of the Moon
3/ Vanishing Rama
4/ Ghuram Rock.

Side 2.

1/ Between Sprits
2/ Ancient Faces

Gongs, bells, chants, flutes, Paris and other delights await upon your ears.

Progress Report.

The meeting between Voiceprint Records and Mihra due to take place last Friday was cancelled due to undue delays in traffic in the Sheperds Bushish area of west London, and the vinyl of Maya could not be transfered into the capable hands of Rob Ayling. Once that is complete, the album will be "cleaned and tweaked" to oust any background noise and a small scratch on one track.

We will try to keep to the original plans re: dates for delivery. But one considers that a certain amount of patience, always a hard thing to come by when needed, is also on the cards at this time. But but butt, bear with us and the Shall overcome.

While we are waiting, we would like to hear from those who know of this period in Daevid's life. And as to the background, the NYork arts scene of Ziska and Elson. Their trip to Formentera, and their first meeting with Daevid. This is so liner notes can be complied with accuracy.

Any as yet unpublished photographs, or photographs of this most unusual unit during that period would also be of great interest. And any contact numbers or addresses for Ziska in Woodstock and Elson, would be really good.

This is what we have so far. From "The Right Side of the Tracks".

"Ziska Baum and Elson (Loren Standlee) were part of the downtown New York jet set underground, a group with their core in the burgeoning loft scene of lower Manhattan but who sought "enlightenment" and just plain fun in places like Ibiza and Nepal.

Ziska and Elson were involved with Aspen magazine, which was edited by LaMonte Young and Marian Zazeela. Aspen included flexi-discs with the magazine which also featured the Velvet Underground. Young was a seminal figure in the minimalist classical movement who with his wife Marian, a light artist, were at the center of the New York cultural activities of the sixties.

Although the magazine remained fairly obscure at that time it carried an  essential mix of mixed media collage and that which gave more avant and  uncompromising artists a medium

They were also part of the New York scene that included Terry Riley who was intrigued by what one could make out of a looped tape years before his contempories would make their fortunes out of the same if limited dimension, and who would meet and influence Daevid Allen, the Velvet Underground drummer Angus Macleish and photograper and poet Ira Cohen who also issued recordings under their Akashic label. Sadly Macleish would leave the Velvets before recording any material and move to the east where he became something of a poet and mystic and to die in poverty.

The time of the student riots had now past during which Allen was deeply  affected by Elson's spirituality and worked with both of them to produce  an Akashic album of their own called "Dreaming of the Mana".

Daevid Allen whom I would also meet in Paris describes his meeting with them in his book "Gong Dreaming" and they published what is now a rare book of poems soon after their return to the U.S called "The Orphic Egg".

I would play with them all during the time off from making "Peace of Mind"  when the little white Triumph Herald of Pym Boogerman would transport both my guitar and butt through Belgium and to the coffee smells that I loved  of Paris.

And the music we played consisted of chanting through to freeform and  although to such as myself somewhat idiosyncratic it held a great emotion  and concentration in its empathy with the crowd.

Recently I discovered a copy of "Dreaming, the magic of your mana" which must be the first album ever recorded by Deavid after the Brits had thrown him out of the country for being one of the more uncompomisinbg members of the Soft Machine and who would later bring together "Gong", the band that produced a strange mix of jazz and folk.""


We are a also making You an offer,

"You talkin to me? Talkin to me?"

Unique to the Canterbury Music list, and to those who wish to tech-assist with web designs and updates for Mihra Records. Mihra Records new webpage need to be both facilitated and collated. For which rewards for such heinous tasks could come in the shape of free CDs. This offer is also open to those who wish to assist Mihra market its products in the overly cartel orientated industry.  

As in eer, sales?

Dear Aymeric,

Once again, thanks for What's Rattlin'. Issue #181 was particularly interesting, not only for info on the gigs I can't get to and the music I doubt I'll hear, but also for some interesting links. Folks, if you're artistic at all, I highly recommend http://www.fireflies-in-the-dark.net - enjoy!

The following message was sent to canterbury-tales@egroups.com following WR#180's mention of Wigwam. I'm still not sure that it's really of relevance to WR readers, but, hey, you've published more about them so I offer the following contribution.  

Greetings all,

One of the joys(?) of living in Indonesia is the uncertainty. Will Gus Dur recover from foot-in-the-mouth  disease? Which musicians will be brave enough to gig here? (Oh, how I  miss good gigs!) Will the Caravan re-releases ever arrive? And what will Rattlers turn me on to next? In WR#180, Eric van Monckhoven suggested we listen to Wigwam. Co-incidentally, in a recent browse at my one and only second-hand CD store I came across an album by one time Wigwam bassist, Pekka  Pohjola. His Urban Tango, rec.82, on Pohjola Records, PELPCD 1, would fit very nicely in anyone's Canterbury collection if he was from there and not Finland. Great bass, Dave Stewartish organ, Phil Millerish driving guitar and crisp, very melodic ensemble playing for each of the five tracks. It also sounds like a Rupert Hine production. Highly recommended, though it's a pity about the somewhat bombastic vocals on the final 2 tracks.

Hi Aymeric,
This is the 3rd time I've e-mailed this posting for What's Rattlin'. Two

Hi Rattlers,

Dear Calyx,

Does anybody know if this track is available anywhere on CD?

It was originally listed to be included on the Rough Trade R.Wyatt, "Flotsam and Jetsam" CD of a few years ago but mysteriously never appeared. It was released on vinyl on the Robert Ellidge "Soundtrack" LP yonks ago and is absolutely marvellous.

Also has anyone heard of a CD release containing the Soft Machine "Love Makes Sweet Music"?


[Don't know about the first question, but to the second one I can answer: no... The easiest way to get this track is to buy a second-hand copy of the triple-LP compilation "Triple Echo" from 1977 and transfer it to CD form. I guess a CD release is made difficult by contractual problems, as the single was originally released on Phillips - AL]

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 for Canterbury fans:

Coming soon from Cuneiform <http://www.artist-shop.com/cuniform>
(note - full length tracks from these releases can be heard at Artist Shop

Matching Mole/Smoke Signals  
Matching Mole was the band formed by drummer/vocalist Robert Wyatt after he left Soft Machine in July, 1971. Soft Machine were hugely popular in France, and Robert got the name of his new band as a play on the French translation of Soft Machine: Machine Molle. What eventually became the first Matching Mole album was begun as a solo album. Midway through recording, he was joined by guitarist Phil Miller (Delivery, Hatfield & The North, National Health), organist Dave Sinclair (Caravan), bassist Bill MacCormick (Phil Manzanera's 801) and guest electric pianist Dave MacRae. These recordings became their self titled first album, released in early 1972. Sinclair left soon after and MacRae joined full time. This quartet performed often throughout Europe, and recorded a second album, Little Red Record, which was released in fall,1972. Soon after, Robert decided that he did not want the responsibilities of being a band leader & broke up the band. Smoke Signals compiles all previously unreleased performances from the band's most intense gigging period, the spring of 1972, and has been assembled to replicate their continuous concert set. The band's sound is an unique take on fusion with interesting structures.

Djam Karet/New Dark Age  
Recorded in California at the turn of the millennium "a time when severe power crises overshadowed the Sunshine State and Silicon Valley" New Dark Age is the band's 11th release, and is the band's first studio release of new material almost five years. It showcases the band's unique signature sound, combining a heavy rock foundation with spacier elements derived from the 'ambient' & 'trance' schools. New Dark Age showcases how Djam Karet's signature sound has evolved after over 15 years of playing together. Interweaving elements from the hard rock/progressive and ambient/trance schools, Djam Karet has created a progressive rock that remains outside of one stylistic time, a true classic progressive sound. All of Djam Karet's releases have received worldwide radio play, press and distribution, fostering an international fan base and a reputation as one of the U.S.'s best instrumental progressive rock bands. Additionally, the band has attracted the attention of high-profile music publications such as Rolling Stone, Billboard, Guitar Player, Relix and others. In June, Djam Karet will perform for over 1,000 fans at NEARfest, the USA's premiere showcase of progressive rock.

Paul Dunmall Octet/The Great Divide
Born 1953 in Welling, England, Paul Dunmall is one of Britain's best-known jazz musicians. Classically trained on clarinet, Dunmall began his professional music career in 1969. Dunmall is perhaps most widely known for his work since 1988 as a member of Mujician, a highly acclaimed British improvising collective that has released four albums on Cuneiform. Since 1997, Dunmall has led his own Octet. The band includes Paul's tenor sax, Keith Tippett-piano, Simon Pickard-tenor sax, Paul Rutherford & Hilary Jeffries-trombone, Gethin Liddington-trumpet, Paul Rogers-bass & Tony Levin-drums. In The Great Divide, the band's third release, the Paul Dunmall Octet progresses through a six-part program that explores a multitude of moods and styles within the medium of modern improvised jazz. On the final track, an additional 8 players join the Octet on their musical journey. The CD is an important addition to Dunmall's ever-growing body of works as well as to the genre affectionately called "Britjazz". "Paul Dunmall's Octet has the requisite chemistry to become a perennial powerhouse on the international scene."-JazzTimes.

Coming Soon from Tzadik

Fred Frith/Clearing  
Fred Frith is one of the world's greatest originals on the guitar, a composer/performer who has been at the forefront of avant garde music since the early '70's. Clearing is his first solo guitar recording in over 20 years (since his classic Live In Japan of 1981) and his first solo studio recording since his groundbreaking Guitar Solos of 1974. Of the three existing solo recordings by this quirky musical master, Clearing is undoubtedly the most dynamic, the most direct and sonically the best recorded. An absolute must have for all fans of guitar music, improvisation and the avant garde.
