Friday Night Progressive #162
Date Published: 19th September 2014

I first came across Friday Night Progressive totally by accident, but I soon found myself beguiled by the style and taste of presenter M Destiny who presents a weekly two-hour show showcasing all sorts of progressive music that you are unlikely to hear anywhere else.  This is surely a man after my own heart.  I also very much approve of the way that it is the hub of a whole community of artists, musicians, and collaborators.  I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do.  Welcome aboard, chaps.

Hello, I am M Destiny host of Friday Night Progressive. You will find it to be an incredible independent internet broadcast show. But it’s more than that. We tend to boast that the musicians played on FNP are above the status quo. This includes the multi-instrumentalist and the educated musician. We tend to shy away from computer generated creations and rely on talent using musical instruments and steer this talent for purposes of shear inspirational indulgence. It is only in the FNP chat room where you will find the most talented musicians packed at one time into such an honored space.

GONZO WEEKLY #96: Jon meets Tony Palmer
Date Published: 19th September 2014

Felix Dennis died earlier this year.  He was a remarkable man and one of the most important people to have come out of the counter-culture of the late-‘60s and early-‘70s.  Indeed he can probably be described as being the person who came out of said counter-culture who had the most successful publishing career of all. More importantly, unlike many of his peers, who will remain nameless, he continued doing projects – such as the Heart of England Forest, whose mission statement is: “"the plantation, re-plantation, conservation and establishment of trees for the benefit of the public, together with the education of the public by the promulgation of knowledge and the appreciation of trees".”  which are totally in line with the ethos of the hippy movement then and now.  According to Sean Coughlan, writing in 2006, Dennis told him: “I've been busy for years, buying land, often under pseudonyms, and planting trees on it. All the money is going into it when I die - and in the end I'd like to think that it will be 20 to 30,000 acres.”

Later in the same interview he described how he still felt that need to stand up against the establishment where necessary: “"It's the bullying that annoys me... When I see something that's wrong, I just speak and act first and I'll take the consequences later."”

He was the youngest and arguably the most dangerous of the three Oz conspirators, and his death has left a very big gap to fill.

The trial took place in the summer of 1971. Writer, broadcaster and film-maker Tony Palmer was in the court throughout the trial, and wrote an excellent book on the subject called ‘The Trials of Oz’.

Some years ago I worked with Palmer on a new edition of this book which is now being reissued via Gonzo Publishing.

Palmer had this to say:

“Felix Dennis vowed revenge on all and sundry when, at the infamous OZ trial in 1971, Judge Michael Argyle sentenced him to a lesser term of imprisonment than the other two defendants, Richard Neville and Jim Anderson, "because he was obviously less intelligent."

Within a few years Felix was a multi-zillionaire who could easily have destroyed Argyle financially in a threatened libel case against the now discredited Judge.

That he chose not to do so is symptomatic of the Felix I knew - a pussy cat, generous, funny and a very shrewd business man.

And a good poet, connoisseur of wine and collector of art - he had over 40 bronzes in his gardens.

He adored the fine life and the pleasures it brought him. Nothing pleased him more than buying David Bowie's house in Mustique, not to mention the million (yes, a million) trees he planted around his house in Warwickshire as part of an educational scheme for children.

He gave away his money as fast as he earned it. It meant nothing to do him, except that it allowed to do those things which he hoped would give others pleasure.

This for him was happiness.

Incredibly, he still lived in the same house in London he bought soon after the Oz Trail. "Why move?" he asked me. "It's quite big enough for what I need."

He was a lovely, lovely man, only 67 when he died and, as he told me last year "so much to do, and so little time."

What a waste.

TONY P.

The new edition of The Trials of Oz on which I worked long and hard is now available, both through Gonzo Multimedia and outlets such as Amazon. 

This week I caught up with Tony for a chat for the first time in some years

Sub Reality Sandwich #20
Date Published: 13th September 2014

Gonzo Web Radio is chuffed to bits to present a remarkable new radio show put together by none other than the lovely Jaki Windmill and the irrepressible Tim Rundall. An anarchic mixture of music, politics, current affairs and all sorts of other things really wrapped in a surreal miasma of post-psychedelic credibility. Sounds good?  You bit sweet pondos it does.

Tim approached me some weeks ago.  Apparently before he died Mick Farren told him about Gonzo Web Radio and some of the plans Rob and I had tentatively began to put together.  Would we like to broadcast some of the stuff he had recorded with Mick?

I’ve heard some silly questions in my time, but this takes the biscuit.  Of course we would. Mick Farren was one of my greatest heroes, and the fact that he took an interest in this magazine and helped me steer it into the direction in which it is currently sailing, meant that dear Tim’s question was completely superfluous. 

So I waited to see what would happen.  Soon after that I got approached by Jaki.  Apparently she has been co-hosting a radio show broadcast from a conceptual submarine together with Tim for some time.  Would we like a whole slew of brand new shows for Gonzo Web Radio?  Of course we would. 

This week the titular submarine dwellers are off the coast of Blackpool which delights Tim and appals Jaki, who is a lady of taste and refinement.

Tim sings a Bo Diddleyesque song about the Golden Mile, and Jaki plays Donovan. Jaki sulks because she wants Tim to win her a teddy bear, and Tim proffers a goldfish. Jaki then gets candyfloss confused with cauliflowers, and everything gets more confusing than usual.

Tim decides to go for a paddle, and then they have an argument about the north-south divide. What’s not to like.

CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIÈRES: Episode Nineteen
Date Published: 13th September 2014

We at Gonzo Web Radio are very proud to bring you Canterbury Sans Frontières - a podcast dedicated to the music of the 'Canterbury Scene' and more. Creator Matthew Watkins writes: 

As with Canterbury Soundwaves, a new three-hour episode will be released with each full moon.I decided to wind down Canterbury Soundwaves so that I didn't end up (i) repeating myself, (ii) scraping the bottom of the Canterbury barrel, or (iii) becoming increasingly tangential. This new podcast broadens the musical remit, so it'll be about one-third 'Canterbury sound', together with progressive/psychedelic/experimental music from the Canterbury of today, the remainder being a mix of music from various times and places which I feel to be in a similar spirit of creative adventurousness. I'll be doing a lot less talking, and the programme will be less expository – so no interviews, barely-listenable bootlegs, etc.

I also plan to include guest one-hour mixes from various musicians from the current music scene in Canterbury (Episode 2 features a mix from Neil Sullivan from Lapis Lazuli).

And for those of you who wonder what Matthew was referring to when he writes about Canterbury Soundwaves we have brought you all the back catalogue of that as well. Those wacky guys at Gonzo, eh?

EPISODE NINETEEN: A new release featuring Hugh Hopper's bass *and* John Greaves reading from William Burroughs novel "The Soft Machine", a woozy Gong cover from Oregon psych band Grails, cosmic Afro-jazz harp from Alice Coltrane and Dorothy Ashby, quite a lot of German early 70's Kosmische sounds, plus Steve Hillage, Gong, Matching Mole, Soft Machine, Nucleus, Terry Riley and a rather sweet Kevin Ayers duet with Bridget St. John. Also, a couple of American remixes of current Canterbury-based artists Koloto and Syd Arthur, some new Afrobeat sounds from the City, and a near perfect forgery from Hamilton, Ontario.

GONZO WEEKLY #95: Jon meets Mick Rogers
Date Published: 13th September 2014

This week I caught up with another person with whom I have wanted to speak for many years. It was Mick Rogers, probably best known as the singer for Manfred Mann’s Earth Band. 

He first crossed my orbit back in 1973 when their glorious single ‘Joybringer’ totally captivated me.  I remember singing it at home whilst carrying out some menial household task in order to only have my father start ranting that “Those bloody long-haired beatniks have made a nonsense of ‘I Vow to Thee my Country’” and forbade me to ever listen to it again.

Both songs, of course, were adaptations of the Jupiter movement of Gustav Holst’s Planet Suite.

Soon after, I acquired a second-hand copy of the Solar Fire album and was a committed fan.  When Mick Rogers left the Earth Band for a while in the mid-1970s, he formed another band called ‘Aviator’. 

The two Aviator albums are now coming out on Gonzo, which gave me a perfect excuse to give him a ring

Aviator were a very different band to the one in which Mick had made his name, and so, for those of you who have not heard of them, here is a potted biography:

Jack Lancaster had already made a name for himself playing with Mick Abrahams in Blodwyn Pig and on several collaborative projects with Robin Lumley including the stellar rewrite of Peter and the Wolf with an all-star cast.

But in 1978 he launched a new project together with two of my favourite musicians.

Martin Horst takes up the story on the Prog Archives: “AVIATOR was founded in 1978 by Jack Lancaster (saxophone, flute, lyricon, synthesizer) and Mick Rogers (guitar & lead vocals) with the co-pilots Clive Bunker (drums) and John G. Perry (bass & vocals).

All four musicians already had an impressive background in different bands. Jack Lancaster had played with: BLODWYN PIG, the MICK ABRAHAMS BAND and the SOUL SEARCHERS, Mick Rogers with: MANFRED MANN'S EARTHBAND, Clive Bunker with: JETHRO TULL, BLODWYN PIG and STEVE HILLAGE, John G. Perry with: CARAVAN and QUANTUM JUMP. They played a mixture of straightforward Rock songs alternating with instrumental Jazz-Rock passages reminiscing COLOSSEUM and BLODWYN PIG, Jack Lancaster gave the band a typical sound with the lyricon and soprano saxophone.

In early 1979 AVIATOR released their first record named "Aviator" on Harvest/Electrola, coproduced by the band and Robin Lumley from BRAND-X. All tracks were cosigned by the band. The tracks are all different ranging from straightforward Rock to Jazz-Rock and Pop.

They went then on a European Tour as a support act for Steve HILLAGE and in the summer of 1979 they did some festivals and venues in Germany, where they did also a public broadcast for the famous WDR radio in Cologne. The tape of the show proves what an excellent live band they had been. On stage they showed their talent, especially in the longer instrumental passages. “

What a band!

What a fantastic band!

Clive Bunker has always been an excellent meat and potatoes drummer, and Mick Rogers is a fantastic singer.

Sadly, Jack Lancaster left the band for pastures new soon after the end of the European tour, but this album remains as testament to quite how superb they were. This is a vastly under-rated artefact of a lost era; an era when music mattered far more than it does today. You must check it out!

GONZO WEEKLY #94: Jon meets John Ellis
Date Published: 5th September 2014

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. For me it was one of the crappiest of times.  I was a student at a minor, and not very good, public school which shall remain nameless, and it was either the end of 1976 or the beginning of 1977.  I would like it to have been the end of 1976, because otherwise this story really doesn’t make that much sense.  I was one of the chosen few who bought a 7” single of the Sex Pistols’ ‘Anarchy in the UK’ in a long defunct record shop in Barnstaple which has now been replaced by a rather nifty health food shop.

However, although I was an enthusiastic convert to the new spiky sounds of punk, and even more so to the Year Zero mentality and the DIY ethic,  for the last three decades I have been convinced that the Sex Pistols were not the first punk band that I heard.  No, that honour went to a band called The Vibrators whose first single, ‘We Vibrate’, totally blew me away.

As I told John Ellis, their guitarist, this afternoon as we had our second wide-ranging discussion, it was quite possibly his fault that my life hasn’t turned out the way out that my parents would have planned.  Because although I had had various school boy pop groups in which I played rudimentary guitar and did my best to emulate Steve Harley, it wasn’t until the times of which I write that I first started writing songs that sounded like songs, and had the structure of songs. And I had actually had a band that played concerts – three of them – to a mainly indifferent audience.

It was hearing ‘We Vibrate’ for the first time that made me think that not only could I do that, but that I wanted to do that; I wanted to cop a slice of this new artistic aggression which was doing the rounds, and cop it I did.

Roll on 38 years and I found myself working as a scribe for what is arguably Britain’s most eclectic and peculiar record label.  One of the artists on said record label is none other than John Ellis, who in the intervening years from being an inspiration to the nascent yours truly has worked with a ridiculously eclectic selection of artists including The Stranglers, Peter Gabriel and Peter Hammill, as well as our old friend Judge Smith.

In this, our second interview, we talk about the changing face of the music industry and how the brave new world of the 21st Century offers both opportunities and pitfalls for the aspiring rock and roller.

Last week, because everything got turned upside down by the Weird Weekend there was a minor cock up and we got the notifications of last week’s show wrong. Please forgive us oh mighty submarine dwellers.

This week the titular submarine has been miniaturised to a ridiculous extent, and Tim, Jaki, and Maisie the cow are currently journeying around the body of a creature called Doris.  Who is Doris?  Why is Doris?  How come the submarine has been miniaturised?  All these and other questions will (probably) be answered.

This week our heroes talk about the legendary Jeff Dexter, they discuss the commoditisation of militarism, and they discuss the less that stellar career path of the legendary Alex Chilton.  What’s not to like?

GONZO WEEKLY #93: Jon meets Jaki Windmill
Date Published: 30th August 2014

I first met Jaki Windmill in the spring of last year.  My nephew Dave Braund-Phillips and I went up to Brighton to see, interview, and film the legendary Mick Farren in what turned out to be one of his final shows.  As we all know, sadly, he passed away a few months later.  Because of his rapidly failing health Mick didn’t turn up at the venue until very shortly before he was up on stage, and so David’s and my well thought out plans of interviewing him before the concert came to naught.

But as a happy result we had more time to spend getting to know the other members of the band.  As these included two of the original members of The Pink Fairies, we spent a long time happily interviewing them, but it was Jaki, sitting quietly in the corner nursing a pint of lager with whom I became most friendly.  It turns out that we have many interests in common within the Fortean world and both that evening, and on several occasions since, both in person and on the telephone, Jaki and I have happily chatted about all sorts of esoteric subjects.

Since our first meeting, and as a direct result of the untimely death of dear Mick Farren (and it may seem strange to you that I am describing the one time enfant terrible of the underground as a ‘dear’ but the notorious anarchist was one of the dearest and sweetest men I have ever met) the latest stage of the Jaki Windmill story has taken place.

The Deviants could never have continued without Mick Farren, so the remaining members did exactly what they had done after kicking Mick out of the band first time around back in 1970, and reformed as The Pink Fairies.  Except that on this occasion they have a female member – Jaki Windmill.

I was just about to write that this was the first time that this band had ever had a female member but then, proving (as if any proof were needed) that the universe is far more complicated and peculiar than we believe, I ran across this piece of interesting information from Wikipedia:

“Farren had, however, previously discussed the idea of a solo album for the second LP of three on the Transatlantic contract (after The Deviants 3), with the third LP to be an album by the other band members, potentially also featuring drummer Russell Hunter's girlfriend Jenny Ashworth as frontwoman - an idea with which the three sidemen had been toying around the time of the contract signing.”

I include this snippet only because it’s one of those little pieces of musical minutiae that keeps an old rock and roll archaeologist like me happy. It also turns out, for those of you interested in such things, that Jenny Ashworth appeared on the 1968 Deviants album ‘Disposable’.  And that at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 at which The Pink Fairies appeared, “Friend's arrive & start amazing festival bulletin which eventually led Miss Jennifer Ashworth, friend of percussionist B.R. Hunter, to the police tent to recover 'Sunshine', her pet poopsy-woopsy apple-dumpling & red-setter puppy.”

But I am deviating wildly from the main path of what I am supposed to be writing about.  So let’s get back to the matter in hand, which is a pre-amble to my interview with Jaki Windmill rather than a complicated diatribe about everyone without a y chromosome that ever played with the Deviants/Pink Fairies family.

Jaki is also an author, with a children’s book called Fairy and Foul of St. Ives.

It is always a pleasure to talk to Jaki and so it was with great pleasure that I rang her up at lunchtime on Friday just as she was preparing to record this week’s episode of ‘Sub Reality Sandwich’ for Gonzo Web Radio.

Enjoy.

Friday Night Progressive #158
Date Published: 23rd August 2014

I first came across Friday Night Progressive totally by accident, but I soon found myself beguiled by the style and taste of presenter M Destiny who presents a weekly two-hour show showcasing all sorts of progressive music that you are unlikely to hear anywhere else.  This is surely a man after my own heart.  I also very much approve of the way that it is the hub of a whole community of artists, musicians, and collaborators.  I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do.  Welcome aboard, chaps.

Hello, I am M Destiny host of Friday Night Progressive. You will find it to be an incredible independent internet broadcast show. But it’s more than that. We tend to boast that the musicians played on FNP are above the status quo. This includes the multi-instrumentalist and the educated musician. We tend to shy away from computer generated creations and rely on talent using musical instruments and steer this talent for purposes of shear inspirational indulgence. It is only in the FNP chat room where you will find the most talented musicians packed at one time into such an honored space.

Sub Reality Sandwich #17
Date Published: 23rd August 2014

Gonzo Web Radio is chuffed to bits to present a remarkable new radio show put together by none other than the lovely Jaki Windmill and the irrepressible Tim Rundall. An anarchic mixture of music, politics, current affairs and all sorts of other things really wrapped in a surreal miasma of post-psychedelic credibility. Sounds good?  You bit sweet pondos it does.

Tim approached me some weeks ago.  Apparently before he died Mick Farren told him about Gonzo Web Radio and some of the plans Rob and I had tentatively began to put together.  Would we like to broadcast some of the stuff he had recorded with Mick?

I’ve heard some silly questions in my time, but this takes the biscuit.  Of course we would. Mick Farren was one of my greatest heroes, and the fact that he took an interest in this magazine and helped me steer it into the direction in which it is currently sailing, meant that dear Tim’s question was completely superfluous. 

So I waited to see what would happen.  Soon after that I got approached by Jaki.  Apparently she has been co-hosting a radio show broadcast from a conceptual submarine together with Tim for some time.  Would we like a whole slew of brand new shows for Gonzo Web Radio?  Of course we would. 

Last week, because everything got turned upside down by the Weird Weekend there was a minor cock up and we got the notifications of last week’s show wrong. Please forgive us oh mighty submarine dwellers.

This week we are back to whatever passes for normality in the Gonzo Weekly  offices (even though it is the editor’s birthday and he is depressingly sober). However, this week the submarine is in Ibiza and the crew are less than impressed. Cue disco biscuit jokes.

Maisie the cow actually enjoys the ‘repetitive beats’. Tim remembers meeting William Burroughs, Jaki remembers Nico, they play a tribute to Robin Williams and they argue whether Mexico is a long way from Ibiza or not. They also talk about Mexican UFOs and other things.

Listening to this radio show is one of my favourite moments of the week. Long may they run.
