Strange Fruit #190
Date Published: 2nd December 2016

Strange Fruit is a unique two-hour radio show exploring the world of underground, strange and generally neglected music. All shows are themed and all shows set out to give the most hardened of sound-hounds some new delight to sample. The show is also unique in providing homework for undergraduate students on North West Kent College’s Foundation Degree in Professional Writing (who dig up many of the odd facts featured in the links between tracks). The show is broadcast on Miskin Radio every Sunday from 10-00-midnight.

 

Every other week the show is now presented by Jeremy Smith and as the two promotional pictures that he sent consisted as one of him covered in mud and the other of him covered in guinea pigs he is obviously mad as a bagful of cheese, which means he will fit in here just fine!

 

He writes: I’ve been a huge music fan ever since my parents bought me a transistor radio and I would listen to the sixties pirate music stations at nights under the covers. This love of live music has stayed with me to this day and I still love standing in a small club like the Borderline in London with some mates and watching a band with a pint in my hand. With the Strange Fruit radio show, I want to continue the trend of doing themed shows and playing the music I love

FRIDAY NIGHT PROGRESSIVE - The Indieprog Awards 2016
Date Published: 2nd December 2016

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.

Canterbury Sans Frontieres #40
Date Published: 18th November 2016

CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIÈRES:

Episode Forty

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?

THIS MONTH: The epic opening track from the new Syd Arthur album, Caravan playing "For Richard" for a '74 Peel session, Kevin Ayers singing Syd Barrett, Syd Barrett singing Syd Barrett (several times), Sun Ra, Terry Riley, an Anglo-Japanese Lindsay Cooper tribute band inspired by this podcast(!), newish chamber-folk from Spiro and North Sea Radio Orchestra, National Health, Robert Wyatt, early Gong and a Soft Machine '68 miniature. Also featured in this episode is an hour-long guest mix from Indonesian fusion archivist Terry Collins, a listener in Jakarta.

GONZO WEEKLY #209: The new Pink Fairies album - track by track
Date Published: 18th November 2016

I still remember the first time that I heard of The Pink Fairies. It was from an extremely unlikely source; my late Father. Some time in early 1974 I had been given a copy of Dark Side of the Moon by a relative, and as was often his custom, my Father found fault with it. It wasn’t the swearing, the creepy between-song chatter or even the mental health references, but he found the line “hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way” offensive, for some reason, but most of all he found the name Pink Floyd to be disturbing. “Calling themselves ‘pink’ they must be poofters” he said. And I who neither knew, or cared, about the sexuality of the band had nothing with which to reply.

Then, whichever of the Sunday colour supplements we got for my Grandmother, ran a shock expose thingy on the alternative culture. We were sitting in what my Mother called ‘the drawing room’ and my elder relatives were reading the Sunday newspaper, whilst my little brother was playing on the floor and I was doing my best to pretend I was somewhere else. Sundays after church were a grim time at that period in my life. My Grandmother read it first, and passed a particularly scurrilous article over to my Father with a shocked look on her face.

It was a picture of The Pink Fairies on stage at the Phun City Festival, and both Twink and Russell Hunter had got their kit off. My Father turned the colour of a boiled beetroot, and started to fulminate aloud about how these disgusting perverts that I liked had sullied the good name of England and brought down the British Empire. “You can bring all your Pink Fairies records downstairs, now! I will not have that filth in the house!”

“Ummmmm” I started, which provoked his wrath further. “Get them NOW!” he almost screamed at me. “Ummmmm”, I said again. “I don’t have any”, I muttered, disappearing upstairs to get my blameless Pink Floyd album. Luckily, for once my Father believed me, and so I retreated to the safety of my bedroom determined to find out all I could about The Pink Fairies as soon as was humanly possible.

When we convened for lunch, my Father was still fulminating about the band’s “disgusting display of perversion” and how anyone with the words ‘Pink’ and ‘Fairy’ in their name deserved a fate worse than death. Sith nearly half a century’s hindsight it is a good thing that the word ‘Twink’ didn’t mean then what it means now, or if it did, it had not reached the circles in which my Father mixed.

Talking of Twink, I found this quote from him online:

"In 1969 my world collided with the likes of Paul Rudolph, Duncan Sanderson and Russell Hunter, and for the next two years we felt like we could inherit the earth. Pretty large aspirations for four hippies from Ladbroke Grove. Remember, this was the dawn of stadium rock, with bands like Led Zeppelin rearing it's ugly head. The era of rock gods, inflated ticket prices, and total inaccessibility for fans. We wanted to tear it all down. Pick by pick. The thought of our fans PAYING to see us was incomprehensible. We played only for free, after all money was the root of all evil, right? We waved two fingers at corporate rock by setting up and playing OUTSIDE of huge rock events. Why pay? We'll give it to you for free. We bewitched people from the entry gates at the Isle of Wight and Bath. We got naked at Phun City, played benefits for the underground press, rocked a gay pride rally, and helped organize the very first Glastonbury Festival. We shamelessly promoted ourselves by spray painting our name on the sides of express coaches that crossed country. We influenced everyone, from Hawkwind to the Sex Pistols. We were the peoples' band. Long live rocknroll." -Twink

In 2014 the Pink Fairies reformed with a line-up of Russell Hunter, Duncan Sanderson, Andy Colquhoun, Jacki Windmill and second drummer George Butler. Initially announcing 2 dates, Robin 2 in Bilston on 15 May and 100 Club, London on 17 May, more dates have since been confirmed. A new album 'Naked Radio' is scheduled for release on 30th September 2016. The reformation happened for almost exactly the same reason that they had formed in the first place: Mick Farren had left The Deviants leaving the surviving members high and dry. He had left them for the first time, because the rest of the band had kicked him out, and the second time because Mick died on stage at The Borderline.

Now there is a new album - Naked Radio - due out very soon. Drummer Russell Hunter, in a press release for the new album, states "it's over 45 years since the first studio album and nearly 30 since the last. The passage of these years is inevitably etched to some extent on all these songs, some much deeper than others. But in the final analysis, they're all some facet of the Pink Fairies." 

Now you can hear them for the first time. The other day I telephoned Andy Colquhoun, and we went through the album track by track, and he gave me permission to insert a brief segment of each song after he described it.

Bloody hell guys, it doesn’t get much better than this.

Up the Pinks!

Strange Fruit #184
Date Published: 21st October 2016

Strange Fruit is a unique two-hour radio show exploring the world of underground, strange and generally neglected music. All shows are themed and all shows set out to give the most hardened of sound-hounds some new delight to sample. The show is also unique in providing homework for undergraduate students on North West Kent College’s Foundation Degree in Professional Writing (who dig up many of the odd facts featured in the links between tracks). The show is broadcast on Miskin Radio every Sunday from 10-00-midnight.

Every other week the show is now presented by Jeremy Smith and as the two promotional pictures that he sent consisted as one of him covered in mud and the other of him covered in guinea pigs he is obviously mad as a bagful of cheese, which means he will fit in here just fine!

He writes: I’ve been a huge music fan ever since my parents bought me a transistor radio and I would listen to the sixties pirate music stations at nights under the covers. This love of live music has stayed with me to this day and I still love standing in a small club like the Borderline in London with some mates and watching a band with a pint in my hand. With the Strange Fruit radio show, I want to continue the trend of doing themed shows and playing the music I love z

Canterbury Sans Frontieres #39
Date Published: 21st October 2016

CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIÈRES:

Episode Thirty-Nine

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?

This episode features some excerpts from Robert Wyatt's discussion with the University of Kent at Canterbury's vice chancellor back in April, interspersed with relevant sounds from Daevid Allen, Annie Whitehead's "Soupsongs" band and Gorky's Zygotic Mynci. Also, Daevid getting all bleak and technoid on his last US tour before disappearing back to Oz for the 80s, the Softs oblique tribute to another TV presenter, Kevin Ayers from a '76 Peel session, Nucleus live on the BBC in '74 and Hatfield live in '75. Some William Burroughs cutups, more Aksak Maboul, more neo-Cantuarianism from Amoeba Split, Third Ear Band on French TV and ancient electronica from Suzanne Ciani and Soul Oddity. From the Canterbury of now, a new album side from Lapis Lazuli and Syd Arthur jamming freely for the 2009 Winter Solstice.

FRIDAY NIGHT PROGRESSIVE #255
Date Published: 21st October 2016

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.
