- WHAT'S RATTLIN'?
:: The Weekly (or so)
Digest for Canterbury Music Addicts ::
Tuesday, October 30th,
I had decided to stop apologising every time WR failed to
keep its supposed weekly periodicity, but I guess with this
unprecedented two-month delay since the previous issue, I had at
least to say that no, it isn't quite over yet for WR. There have
been several reasons for this silence, mostly acute laziness on my
part and, I must confess, a somewhat depressing lack of
contributions from you subscribers. I can't really explain why it
is so, since I think there's still plenty to discuss, but lately I
haven't seen too much of the empassioned musical discussions WR
was originally conceived to host; and I don't see much happening
either on the 'real time' forums on Canterbury music either, so I
don't think this has much to do the delay between issues. Of
course, this may seem quite futile with respect to the tragic
events of September, and I can see why some people would think
there's no absolute necessity to endlessly discuss musical topics.
But I must say that, as moderator of this list, this type of
content is what motivates me to keep making WR more than the
occasional, purely informative mailing list it seems to become. In
a sense it's OK, since it's easier and quicker to make and
consequently can keep going forever with minimal effort. Yet I
would find this more than a little frustrating. I hope some of you
agree with me and lend me a hand in giving WR a necessary shot of
Meanwhile, here are reviews of a few recent releases from
the Voiceprint label, copies of which were kindly sent to me by
Brian Hopper. This is another reason for the time it took to
assemble this issue - I absolute wanted to have these written for
the new issue, but couldn't find the time - until now.
Soft Machine "Turns On Vol.1&2" (Voiceprint, 2001)
Whether or not these two CDs are welcome is, I think, left
to everyone's personal appreciation. I guess it should be said,
though, that they are recommended exclusively to those who, having
acquired all existing studio recordings by the early incarnations
of Soft Machine, wish to further explore the chemistry that was so
unique to the band by listening to examples of their live
performances of the time.
The problem being that everything that exists in terms of
live recordings from the period 1967-68 is of uniformly bootleg
quality. There are several reasons for that - no recordings of
professional quality were made, and in the case of
non-professional recordings, it turns out that the live sound of
early Soft Machine was almost impossible to capture anyway. Having
been privileged to hear first generation tapes of such material, I
can confirm that even those are below the usual standards of what
is commonly considered to be 'releasable'.
Now, the fact is that much of the music on these two CDs
has been in circulation among fans for many years. And - that's
where the principle of allowing its release can be understood - if
it is to be circulated in bootleg CD form (as I believe it has
been), it may be better that former members at least receive the
part of the sales money they rightly deserve. A recent e-mail from
Daevid Allen expressed concern that this might not be the case,
but I trust that Brian Hopper, who supervised the mastering of
these CDs and wrote their (fine and informative) liner notes, and
the people at Voiceprint (who, after all, have a long history of
collaborating with Daevid) will ensure that it is so. (It might be
worth noting, while we're at it, that Allen only plays on four
tracks of the first volume)
OK, now, what's on these CDs? Let's start with "Volume 2".
The first half is from two gigs in London and Amsterdam in
November and December 1967; and the second half is the much
bootlegged Davenport (Iowa) gig from August 1968, which appears to
be the only live recording of Soft Machine on their long American
tour with Jimi Hendrix. As for "Volume 1", the credits are
slightly misleading - eight tracks are said to have been recorded
"in various UK studios in 1967". Obviously, several of these are
(BBC) radio sessions in disguise. Then two tracks were, according
to the credits, recorded in a "European studio" - I would guess
these ("We Know What You Mean" and "I Should've Known") are the
rather widespread performances on Dutch (?) TV, although I haven't
really bothered to check. Finally, most of the second half of
"Volume One" consists of live recordings from Middle Earth and
Speakeasy clubs. As none of them feature Daevid Allen, they can be
assumed to date from the autumn of 1967.
To be frank, in spite of engineer Chris Thorpe's efforts,
the vast majority of this music would be considered unlistenable
by anyone but the most ardent Soft Machine fanatics. However the
listening experience is, I think, ultimately rewarding. As Brian
Hopper wrote to me in the letter accompanying these CDs: "You will
be aware that the audio quality is not that good despite our best
efforts at digital processing and editing. However I feel it is
important to listen to the music in recordings such as these as it
is the performance within the historical context which is
important rather than absolute sound perfection. Unfortunately we
are so used to sonically 'perfect' recordings nowadays that we
forget to listen to the excitement and interesting ideas that the
musicians had created...". Amen.
As could be expected, there are lots of repeats in the
programme. I've stopped counting the number of versions of "Hope
For Happiness", "Lullabye Letter" or "I Should've Known" after a
while. On the other extreme there are some rare occurences as
well, such as an instrumental passage which was later used by
Kevin Ayers in his "May I?" song, or the final section to Mike
Ratledge's later epic "Esther's Nosejob", which concludes the
American gig from 1968. And most of all, there is quite a bit of
free-blowing between the structured 'themes' or songs, in the vein
of pieces like "So Boot If At All" on the first album.
All in all, I guess these CDs are worth having in one's
collection as the sum total of the existing live/radio recordings
by the original Soft Machine. I'm not sure they will be listened
to more than once by many people. I'm not sure either that better
generation copies of these tapes will not appear on the market
eventually (for instance my copy of the US concert is, I believe,
of slightly better quality than the one used here). Anyway, that's
as good as you're likely to get... for now.
Happy Accidents "Scitatics" (Voiceprint, 2001)
The first I heard about Happy Accidents, I think, was when
trombonist Robert Jarvis told me about them with great enthusiasm
at a Hugh Hopper concert in Rotterdam last year. Robert has been a
longtime member of the band, whose guiding light is none other
than Graham Flight.
Canterbury music obsessives with be familiar with Graham
as an early vocalist for the legendary Wilde Flowers, and
subsequently a bass player in the Polite Force group alongside
Mark Hewins and Dave Sinclair, whose solo project "Moon Over Man"
also featured Graham's playing.
Now, Graham Flight has changed instruments again, playing
keyboards and, even more importantly, leading and composing the
entire repertoire of Happy Accidents. This 10-piece ensemble was
formed in 1985 by Graham with guitarist Nigel Hobbins (now on
bass) and sax player Will Glanfield. As a more Latin-ish oriented
band, Happy Accidents enjoyed their most successful gigging period
at the turn of the 80s and 90s.
After a short layoff, the band was re-born with a slightly
altered line-up and new musical direction. Both Hopper brothers,
Brian and Hugh, have provided sympathetic liner notes for this
second release (the first, "Phenomenon", was published in 1998),
and Hugh mentions that the current incarnation of Happy Accidents
is more oriented towards the approach of such 'progressive jazz'
legends as Ornette Coleman, Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk or Sun
There surely are elements of that music in the 10 numbers
that make up this (rather brief) CD. But the main thing about
Happy Accidents is the way a lot of different styles and
instrumentations are covered. Brian Hopper, who sent me a copy of
the CD for review in WR, wrote to me in his accompanying letter:
"I believe Happy Accidents represent the true, modern inheritors
and performers of the Canterbury sound!". And in terms of both the
open-mindedness of their musical approach and the sophistication
of Graham Flight's compositions and arrangements, this is true.
Alongside instrumental pieces the CD also includes more
song-oriented material which showcases the vocal talents of
Mavernie Fuller, such as "Shirt In Heaven" which also features
other members of the group, including Graham, joining in for an
a-capella choir - before the rest of the band join in for more
attractive weirdness. A good description of the album as a whole
is provided by Brian Hopper in his liner notes: "Structured
'songs' interspersed with many moments of ordered mayhem and with
sonic textures blending and distorting the traditional instrument
sounds with those produced by modern technology".
Apparently, Happy Accidents are even more impressive in a
live context - "some of the band's performances feature mime,
acting, costume and all manner of props to delight and confuse
their audiences", adds Brian. 'The Emperor's New Clothes', 'The
Picture Of Dorian Gray' or 'The Amun Hotep III Saga' are but three
of Happy Accidents' multi-media extravaganzas...
More Happy Accidents CDs are to be expected in the coming
months/years, as the band have finally decided to immortalize the
best items in their repertoire. This also suggests that, as a
working unit, Happy Accidents is alive and well. Let's hope their
music will finally gain the attention it deserves, particularly
from fans of 'classic' Canterbury music.
Brian Hopper & Robert Fenner "Virtuality" (Voiceprint,
"A rather gentle and ambient thing, but with jazzy and
ethnic overtones", is how Brian Hopper described to me what I
believe to be his very first release under his own name - albeit a
duo collaboration with Robert Fenner (formerly of the duo
Runestones), who adds keyboards, guitars and percussion to Brian's
saxophones and synthesizers. The composition work is shared
equally between Hopper and Fenner; the pieces on this CD were
recorded in 1996 (shortly after their initial meeting) in two
cases, and in 1999 and 2000.
As suggested by the quote above, the music here is rather
tranquil and soothing, and could be classified as 'new age'. The
core of the compositions is made up of synthesizer layers on top
of which melodic themes are stated or improvised solos are played.
There is a subtle quality to the arrangements and sonic
'landscapes' so the overall result is high above the average
synth-based album, and manages to be quite evocative. Hopper
describes the general intent as "a musical journey, a sort of
imaginary Cook's tour with suggestions of exotic locations blended
into the soundscape... There is also the jazzier, rhythmic
elements, which provide a contrast, and serve to anchor the exotic
into a space that is perhaps unexpected...".
Music that does not quite fit into the 'Canterbury' label
but is definitely worth listening to if you're into that sort of
musical 'vibe'. And a welcome return for Brian Hopper after a mere
three decades away from the stages and recording studios...

In Cahoots - The Vortex, Stoke Newington Monday 8th
Lineup (and down): Phil Miller, Peter Lemer, Pip Pyle,
Fred Baker, Elton
Dean plus guest Doug Boyle.
I've seen In Cahoots quite a few times since they first
challenged me with Phil's unique artistic approach at the in the
arts centre in Southport way back in... oooh 1987, I guess. On
that occasion I was taken by surprise by how far Phil's
compositions had progressed since his Hatfield and Health days. At
the Vortex on Monday night for the first time they presented
Phil's unique and very twisted world, encapsulated in the youthful
exhuberance and confidence which characterised Phil's bands of the
late mid/seventies. The only other time they've performed with
such cocky penache must have been their support slot for Caravan
at the Astoria three or four years back. On that night it was
great to see them tearing through their numbers in front of a
packed alternately confused/enthused Caravan audience -
significantly bigger than that In Cahoots typically draw (sadly).
Unlike the Astoria gig, however, at the Vortex In Cahoots
reached another place. True the less up-tempo numbers might have
been better performed by other line-ups, and maybe it was the
dimension Jim Dvorak (missing due to a bereavement) brings which
was missing, but the rip-roaring "Green and Purple/Hic Haec Hoc"
suite which kicked off the proceeding revealed a Phil Miller in no
mood for pussyfooting through the old tunes. This piece has never
been so well executed.
They were all on fire and, whilst it seems unfair to pick
out individuals for special praise, I have to mention both Pete
Lemer's phenomenal performances and Phil Miller's playing. Pete's
playing, virtuoso as usual, included some very tasteful,
organ-tinged tones and some really fat Mini-moog-esque sounds
employed to great funk effect in [insert title here]. In Phil's
case, when perhaps in recent times he might have been accused of
adopting a moore restrained approach, this gig saw him return to
his Hatfield/Health more rock-oriented approach.
Fittingly on this occasion the encore was the high-octane
"Your Root 2" - complete with the motorised keyboard arpeggios.
Sheer joy to hear it performed so well.
In Cahoots are off on another jaunt to Japan shortly.
Let's hope that they perform at this level for the larger
audiences and that recordings are issued in time for the Christmas
Date: Tue, 16 Oct 2001 08:53:35 EDT
This is a long shot, but I am posting this in the hope
that perhaps one of you will have a lead for us on this.
We are working on a new archival CD by the Soft Machine
for May 2002 release. We have already received the "ok" from the
band members, and are currently working on tracking down the best
quality version of the tapes to be used.
We are in need of photos of the band as they appear on the
this release. We need photos of the band or of the individual
members of the band (Wyatt, Ratledge, Hopper, Dean) circa
1970 and also any shots - if there actually are any other than
that one that appeared in Triple Echo - of the septet version of
the band (late 1969).
Please do not scan & forward pictures from old record
albums or from the Wrong Movements book. I need to have
permission from the photographers, so I am mostly writing this in
the hope that some of you took photos in the old days or know
someone who took photos.
Please contact me OFF LIST & privately via email if
you have any leads.
Thank you for your help & interest.

The touring party is Daevid, Gilli, Mike Howlett, Theo
Travis, Chris Taylor and Gwyo Ze Pix. Didier will be on board
until the gig in Macclesfield, while Theo is busy finishing off
his own tour (see his dates above), but from 14th onwards the
Acidopholus one will blow the horns in Gong. It's possible that
Didier may spontaneously appear (and combust?) at some of
the French dates. The Switch Doctor for this voyage into the
unknown is David Id, there'll be a UV installation by Toni from
Visual Bliss (with a few surprises), U of E Bassist Michael Clare
will be along as Tour Manager in the UK, oh yeah I'll be there.
The band have been working hard on a new set, one which will
contain quite a number of surprises. There are some Gong songs you
probably never though you would ever hear live on stage and some
great new material.
The whole sequence of events begins with a bang and
spectacular gig at the Royal Festival Hall with the Orb, and from
Japan, the Acid Mothers Temple...as an added bonus this will be
one of those rare occasions with both Didier and Theo in the band.
