Dear all,

A brief introduction to apologise for the delay and the lack of the promised editorial stuff, due to lack of time these past weeks. Hopefully with the end of the summer holidays it will be back to normal with the next issue.

While in London last month I had the opportunity to catch John Etheridge in a quartet gig that was a Grappelli tribute. The violinist was the very talented Chris Garrick and John played both acoustic & electric guitars. His fleet lines reminded me of the Soft Machine days despite the more straight-ahead context of the music.

John's most recent project is a band called Zappatistas which as you can guess plays Frank's music. He said that the band is a bunch of crack British jazzers and they've just recorded an album. I also read that John guested on the Ian Mosley album along with Steve Hackett and members of Ian's band, Marillion. The connection here is John's first band, Darryl Way's Wolf where Mosley was the drummer.

We talked about the re-release of the Second Vision album which to my ears was a brilliant disc with great compositions and playing. It was recorded just after John left Soft Machine and he brought Ric Sanders with him from that incarnation of the Softs. Ric is now in Fairport Convention...

I asked about the (Nigel) Kennedy disc and why the guitarists (John and Caravan's Doug Boyle) had so little solo space despite the Hendrix tunes which are obviously guitar-oriented. It's Kennedy's gig so he handles the solos. John said that Doug cut loose on a dobro solo that was eliminated when the track was faded out!

John also played with Pat Metheny on a BBC TV broadcast but once again Pat handled the solos. John talked about his tour with Andy Summers and the great acoustic album that they did together. Apparently Sting sat in one night and sang "Round Midnight". All of these fans came up afterwards for autographs...  from Andy! This of course blew Sting's mind as he is used to being sequestered backstage from the hordes of his admirers.

John is quite a nice chap and of course is a very talented and adventurous player. He plays very frequently in London so check him out if you are in town...

Regards, David

Dear "Whatsrattlinians".

MoonJune Records, New York (http://www.moonjune.com/) is proud to announce the release of the new record:

Bar Torque MJR001

Saxophonist Elton Dean has long been acknowledged as a supreme improviser in many musical contexts, starting with the Soft Machine in the early 1970s, through his large body of work with the cream of the British jazz scene (most notably with pianist Keith Tippett) as well as Carla Bley and most of the musicians associated with the famed 'Canterbury' scene. "Bar Torque" presents an improvised duo session with guitarist Mark Hewins, a longtime collaborator with a unique talent for atmospherics. The music on this release focuses on the most lyrical dimension of Dean's saxophone playing, his melodic outbursts inspired by Hewins' delicate, often abstract, harmonic base. The musical path treaded is unpredictable and utterly original. "Bar Torque" is improvisation at its most touching and universal.


Please visit MoonJune's website http://www.moonjune.com/ and sign our guestbook in order to receive excting news about future Canterbury related releases, and some of the news will be sensational.

Tour/Gig News

Daevid's University of Errors USA dates in August have had the obligatory last minute shuffle but have now settled down and are complete.

UK Gong Tour itinerary is just about complete as well but there may be some final bedding there as well. Not only is there the Royal Festival Hall Gong/Orb spectacular to kick the whole touring circus off, but there is now a brilliant ending to the UK tour as Gong and Hawkwind play together at Nottingham's Rock City on 7th November (I'd book that ticket if I were you).

Hurrah!...some French dates for the European leg of the Gong Tour have now come in (well they had, but we have to take them down because they are apparently all moving around... but they are coming back). We are still waiting for news of Italy (as always), Austria and a few other dates. Gong are possibly playing their first date in Spain at the Periferias Festival, Huesca near Barcelona.

A second date in Oslo on the 18th November is probably to be added as the first gig has already sold out.

Also listed below are some Didier dates later in the year and a big Theo Travis tour.


Daevid has once more packed up and put into storage the contents of his house (the landlord  rents it to someone else while he's away) and set off from Australia on his travels. Firstly to the States for the U of E dates, then to Europe to prepare for the Gong tours.

The War of Gilli's toe

Gilli is busy writing, transcribing lyrics (see the lyric section on the website), looking after children (big and small) and also working as Vice President of the local Progress Association which, "mainly works against the inappropriate encroachment of greedy developers on the natural environment full of endangered species". She has also broken her toe...I don't know whether the two things are connected.

Posters 1 (or) Gong 'Treasures'
(or) How the Past can transform the Future?

From her collection Gilli is to sell some very rare Soft Machine and Gong type artifacts. Early Soft Machine posters and PR pamphlets from '66/67, Gong posters from the early 70's, day-glo Live Floating Anarchy Posters from '77, Floating Anarchy LPs and more. I'll have a look at their condition and take some advice to work out the prices for her.

Solvent collecting type folks:
- If you are interested, drop me an e- mail and I'll send you a complete list of what there is in advance of it appearing on the website.
The rest of us:
- I will photograph everything and put it on the site sometime.

Posters 2 - Vienna 2000

There is a special limited poster offer in the Kasbah. Ace designer Peter Hartl had printed 150 beautiful mandala posters for the Gong gig in Vienna last October. Most of them were used to promote the gig and stuck up all over the city. However I brought back a few to sell to help a very special Austrian Gong friend. These are definitely posters destined to move into the 'ultra' rare Gong items category in the near future and in 30 years time your children can sell them for 20,000 Martian Fumits and buy themselves a pair of new improved turbo legs with built in ambitronic, sensu-sound aroma entertainment centre and holographic cod-piece... or throw them on the fire to keep warm in their cave.

Posters 3 -  Gong gigs - Your Planet Needs You

The third part of this trilogy of poster biz is that Daevid has provided fabulous drawings for the Autumn Gong tours poster - some of his best artwork since the Family Jewels. The posters, when printed, are to be sent to promoters and venues to promote the gigs, but I also had the idea of putting up simplified downloadable versions for those of you who would like to print out and place in locations where the most Gong sympatheticio beings gather...your local coffee shop, club, police station... wherever. The more Gong friendly bods that come to the gigs the better time we all have. As soon as corral Wes for a 'site-session' we'll get the poster posted.

French Sonnets Bloom

There is news of Didier's book of poetry, L'anche Des Metamorphoses,
on his website: http://www.didiermalherbe.com

Gong Tour Buses

If you want to find out what the Gong tour bus used in the States looks like (or even hire it for your own band's US tour) then have a look at the good Dr Wolf's website all about it. http://homepage.mac.com/thandoy/

For the first time we will be using a large sleeper bus on the forthcoming Gong Tours (apparently it works out cheaper than Hotels). So many a long mile and hour more than usual will be spent in each other's company. Time to meditate on the future of the Gong, conjure up wild plans, rebuild websites to someone's (anyone's?) satisfaction, sketch out 3 albums, decide the one true travel-scrabble champion of the Universe (actually we play the harder, mind-only, travel -scrabble), and build useful paper-maché artifacts made out of the small mountain of newspapers accumulated on tour (I think it's a nest building thing).

Shamal Sample

Another sample from the Gong album Shamal is to be used on a dance release. It's been used on a track called Hadili by a combo called Black Lodge who are on the UK Mo'Wax label. The sample comes from Didier's composition, 'Bambooji'. Now you know just about all that I do on the matter, except that the sampleling 'budget' for Black Lodge's album (what they spend on paying publishing advances, the legalities etc.) was 10,000 pounds! Different world, eh?

Wee Pixies

Meanwhile back in the real world... A couple of months ago I got a request for some Flying Teapot cards from a teacher in a junior school. It was to help stimulate those budding fertile imaginations. Of course I was happy to do this and sent all the children  a postcard each.  I also told Daevid all about it. Then the other day I got this note.

Dear Jonny,

Thank you so much for the post cards, the children thought they were great. They especially loved the card from Daevid with the drawing of the pixie on it. The children have written some wonderful stories about the pot head pixies. They have designed their own pixie and done a collage of their planet gong. I hope to get some pictures digitized for you. They have written a thank you letter for you.

I cannot explain how wonderful the children find the fantasy of the Planet Gong. It is something that they have not seen on T.V. and there is not a Disney video of it!  This makes it far easier for the children to use their own imagination in a way that is not possible if you have seen images before.

Thanks again for taking the time to send the things to us.

Beverly Radley
and all the children in year 1 from Windmill Hill Primary school.

I'll start some web pages of all the artwork sent in over the years (some of it's wonderful) and the children's work seems like a good place to start. So when it arrives I'll begin.

Hillage images

Last week I was sent about 25-35 very good slides of Steve in action in '79 at Hammersmith and Bolton. Now just got to find a slide scanner then we can all see them.

Theo's new CD

Theo Travis' new CD 'Heart of the Sun' should be available in a few days time. Daevid guests on on track. I'll get it into the Kasbah as soon as I have copies.



Most of the words to Gilli's Mother album have been posted on the website in English and French. And thanks to Benoit Godfroy (who also helped with the French Mother lyrics) all the words of Gilli's new CD,  It's All a Dream, have also been posted in French.

Also there:-
She Made The World - Mothergong
Even As We - Glo (most of them)
Fairy Tales - Mothergong
some of Daevid's Brainville lyrics.
Anyone else wanna help with this large.

Note: Since I wrote the above Benoit has forged ahead and started on Flying Teapot in French. If you are up to the task in any other language or for any other albums that would be most welcome...Klingon anyone?


Still plugging away making improvements to the entries in the Kasbah, getting more details in each entry and making sure all the jpgs work etc. There are also loads  of new items including a new tape section and an expanded book section, see the bottom of  this e-mail for all the recent additions and returns.

Subject: Mihra Records goes KLUNK.
Date: Wed, 29 Aug 2001 00:31:36 +0100


To say the least, Mihra Records has got off to an unusual beginning.

It must have been 8 months ago when Daevid agreed to let Mihra release this 1968 Paris, Elson and Ziska "historians album. Then came the major glitch in that the condition of the album was not going to be "up to scratch" and we wondered what on earth we should do. Lifting the copyright of an important (to us all) video off the KKK is one thing, but not giving Daevid Allen fans value for money was a completely different matter.

In the end we decided to create a few copies for those gnomeish Allen historians whom we knew would not try at take Princess Sunshine and the Moonbeams' "The magic of your Maya" to the top of the alternative music charts..  And then another wait arrived while those who decided they still wanted the album contacted us to say yea or nay.

We know that Louis (Crohinga Well magazine) has paid for 2 albums. And that some others have also sent orders. But now as the album is being burned over the next week. As its been so long in production. It may be advisable for those who sent monies for Maya to send us the details of your orders and again your address. Just to jog our memories so to speak.

But, having only a single brain cell, one digresses from the point. Mihra Records has agreed a wonderfully courageous arrangement with Stan Tracey OBE, a real first in terms of the roots of Euro jazz. Mihra Records, in an attempt to gain funding for its rather disestablishmentarian activities in terms of human rights abuse and the hard drug marketeers, will release his major album of 1958. With Europe's numero uno drummer of his generation Phil Seaman, guru of Ginger Baker, and Sax ace Tubby Hayes, "LITTLE KLUNK".  We are very pleased to say that we have obtained a pristine copy of the vinyl. And that the Tracey family, including Clark Tracey drummer of no mean ilk Blue Note period have been thinking for quite some while that such an important album would be best reissued rather than gather dust that by rights belongs to far lesser deserving creative works.

Phil Seaman was the first pro jazz musician I met when I came to seek work and a "boy jazz musician" in London of the 50s. Then working with altoist extrodinaire Jamaican Joe Harriot, Seaman had a handshake like steel and swore like a trooper. One of the greatest drummers of our generation, Phil was more than a couple of handfulls of trouble to the average bandleader. Some of his extraordinary life we hope to tell when we re-release of Stan Tracey's "LITTE KLUNK". The predominant UK avant jazz album of its decade, bar none.

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>. Here are some excerpts for Canterbury fans:

Coming soon from LoLo Records <http://www.artist-shop.com/lolorec>

Gongzilla/Gongzilla Live!
Gongzilla Live! has been mastered at Sterling Sound by Chris Muth. Watch here for the release date. Pre-order now! Recorded at an open air festival in Québec, Canada the show features Hansford Rowe, Bon Lozaga, VicStevens, Benoit Moerlen and David Fiuczynski.

After having been out of print for a couple years, "Suffer", the first Gongzilla CD, will finally be re-released this summer!!! Allan who? That's Allan Holdsworth's great playing on this and many other tracks. Gongzilla is the latest generation in the Gong extended family and the most vicious. Pulse Magazine rated this album as the #3 Fusion album for 1995. The core of this album is Allan, Bon, Hansford, Benoit Moerlen and Bobby Thomas of Weather Report with some special guests.

Coming soon from Cuneiform <http://www.artist-shop.com/cuniform>

Picchio dal Pozzo/Camere Zimmer Rooms
Founded in Genoa, Italy, in 1972, Picchio dal Pozzo were one of the few Italian progressive rock bands influenced by the 'Canterbury' Sound. They released two highly regarded - and still sought after - albums in their lifetime before disbanding in 1980. In 1977 the band decided to set up a live concert in the studio to test their newly purchased tour equipment. Camere Zimmer Rooms is an incredible archival find; a high quality, live-in-the-studio recording of all previously unheard material by a rightfully legendary band. Essential for their fans as well as fans of groups such as Caravan, Hatfield and the North, Henry Cow and Soft Machine.

Chris McGregor's Brotherhood of Breath/Travelling Somewhere
The Brotherhood of Breath was founded in 1970 by expatriate South African pianist Chris McGregor. McGregor had previously led the racially mixed Blue Notes, who had fled South Africa's oppressive laws and eventually settled in London. Joining him in the Brotherhood were members of the Blue Notes as well as some of the top names of the British jazz avant garde - Harry Beckett, Mark Charig, Nick Evans, Harry Miller, Evan Parker, Gary Windo and more. This previously unreleased radio concert from their peak years adds to their still growing legacy and will bring their music to a new generation of fans.
