Dear Rattlers,

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 new blood.

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 Ra.

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, 2000)

"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 October 2001

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 stocking!

- Nick.

Hello all,

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.

Now Summer has faded and Autumn arrived here in the Misty Isles the Gong UK and European Tour is about to erupt upon us...perhaps if you listen carefully you might just catch the high, tinkling sound of chuckling pixies as all manner of unexpected mirth, adventure and mayhem is prepared for every one of us. Come and embrace the chaos - it could just change your life.

All the rest of da nudes is at the bottom of this mail including:-
System 7 surf  the Seventh Wave

have me as a member" - Groucho Marx

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. Due to having two other bands on the bill Gong's set will be an intense one!

To finish the UK part of the tour (to wheel on an old cliché) - 'Gong with the Wind' -  something people have been wanting to see for yonks, Gong and Hawkwind together! The added bonus at this gig is that Tim Blake will be appearing with the Hawks.

More than half of the European dates are now confirmed, but as you can see below there are still plenty of dates and details still to come in, especially in France and Italy. There are gigs in Paris, Rome and oh so many other places still to  announce.  We'll get the rest posted as soon as possible while tearing round the UK.

This complete tomfoolery of Gongishness comes to a celebratory end with our mission complete (world peace, the universal acceptance that heaven is right here right now and your jollies completely and infinitely jollied...or something along those lines...) at The Scala end of tour gig/party in London on the 20th December. The stops will most definitely be pulled out.

I can't begin to go into the details of the strange ins and outs of what's happening to the Glastonbury Fayre, Seven Drones and other planned CD releases except to say there are alot of people going through a lot of changes right now, not just me here at GAS.  But I trust, and have  the singals that, things are sorting themselves out right now and I hope to have some positive news to report soon.

It's plenty past late and I'm all out of puff now...off to London in the Morning  and not back here until the 21st December.

My partner Sue is maning the GAS HQ while I'm gone. She will be the one dealing with orders and mail order,  forwarding e-mails for me to deal with and generally  being the GAS World Tree, while still looking after all the children - Yikes these women are strong!  So if there is not the usual quick response from GAS patience please it's all a bit new to her.

See you soon.

Tell me more bout Mihra Records.<<

The industry needs it own HR org, rather than all those Featured Artist Wembley concerts doing nothihng inside the industry itself.. At least we think so..

We have this first album and the one that is turning out ok Dreaming the Magic of your Maya  Deavid Allen, Ziska and Elson Loren... the latter two people being the friends of one of my exs... and a couple of other musician hippies. This is a v rare album, it may be that Daevid has not got a copy himself, it was very damaged but has come out OK, and is a most typical hippy thing, more so than most recordings of that period, even with its scratches left on it. But now they have been removed in the main. Its taken over a weeks work by one of our people. Hard slog.

We want to make a limited release material on Mihra Records.
Other material that is important artistically and which we have written permission from the main artist to rerelease (and fk the cartel and the MPA..) This will gain much needed funding for Mihra work.. Human Rights etc etc etc ..
