Strange Fruit #178
Date Published: 19th August 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

FRIDAY NIGHT PROGRESSIVE #247
Date Published: 19th August 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.

GONZO WEEKLY #196: Jon meets Paul May
Date Published: 19th August 2016

In 2011 the rock world was buzzing with proof that good and evil can in fact work together in the form of former Judas Priest vocal legend and Holy Rage heavy metal frontman Al Atkins and Christian guitarist and music artist Paul May. Together these extreme opposites combine creating a powerful new CD called ‘Serpent’s Kiss’, now available on Gonzo Multimedia. The 10-track album is the product of two of the Midlands finest architects of rock and metal coming together to create something that is unique and totally exhilarating! 

There are enough doses of melody and metal madness to entice all fans of the genre, and while it is solid, honest, working-class heavy metal, it also has its roots in contemporary metal with some fine axe-work and killer choruses. The cover art for Serpent’s Kiss is also unique as it was created by world-famous fantasy artist Rodney Matthews.

Al Atkins: More noted for forming UK’s Judas Priest and fronting them for four years, and laying down the foundations that would see them eventually selling 40 million albums worldwide. He also wrote songs for them that went gold like Dreamer Deceiver, Never Satisfied, Winter, Caviar and Meths, and Priest’s all time classic Victim of Changes. Al’s unique powerful vocal style sites influences by noted rock singers Roger Daltrey, Paul Rodgers and longtime friend Robert Plant. Al has done countless radio and TV interviews worldwide and recently was filmed for BBC TV British Heritage and Banger Films Canada for the metal evolution series on VH1. He has even written a book on his musical life about growing up in Birmingham, UK, alongside Robert Plant and Black Sabbath, called Dawn of the Metal Gods. Al has released 6 solo albums to date, toured the US twice, and has worked with Brian Tatler (Diamond Head), Dave Holland (Judas Priest), Dennis Stratton (Iron Maiden) and Bernie Torme (Ozzy/Gillan). Al recently released a new self-titled album with his offshoot band Holy Rage and has now teamed up with brilliant Christian writer/guitarist Paul May and recorded an album called ‘Serpent’s Kiss’, which Al says are the best recordings to date!

Paul May: Some people learn to play guitar, Paul was born (again) to play guitar! Paul has become respected for his passionate, soulful guitar work and noted for his explosive and exciting solos. As a world-class professional guitarist and songwriter, Paul has played and recorded sessions across the globe, touring and playing throughout the UK, Europe, USA and the Eastern block. Paul appears on around 50 albums to date, featured in both the secular and Christian arenas. Paul is also a record producer and has covered the entire spectrum of musical tastes in production. Paul has played, recorded with and produced alongside the bands and members of: Al Atkins (Judas Priest), Dave Holland (Judas Priest), Roy Wood (Move, ELO, Wizard), Jon Brooks (The Charlatans), Smokin Roadie/Tempest, MC5, V-Rats, Janus, A.N.D, Dave Rowley Band, Larry Norman and many others. Along with working with Al Atkins, Paul currently plays guitar with A.N.D and Temple Dogs.

‘Working with Paul May on the Serpent’s Kiss album was a fantastic journey,’ says Al. ‘From the opening song The Shallowing to the last song Theatre of Fools, it was an honour to have been asked by the brilliant guitarist Paul May to put this project together… Without a doubt this is one of the best albums I have appeared on since my early days with Judas Priest and that says something having written and recorded several of my own works.’

‘This album was meant to be,’ explains Paul. ‘When Al agreed to do the vocals it inspired me to write specific tracks tailored for his voice. Not only did Al deliver in abundance, he did so with world class! It’s what I’d call a ‘Classic Hard Rock/Metal’ album; that covers a wealth of subject matters and life experiences. It’s all rock ‘n’ roll! And a real triumph to me in so many ways. I just feel blessed! To again, be involved with such a great vocalist and friend and end up with such a cracking album is a gift indeed – rock on!’

Some years later they have produced three studio albums and an anthology. Now they are working on a very special anthology of Al’s music over the years. It is always a pleasure to talk to Paul, so this week I rang him up for a chat...

GONZO WEEKLY #194: Jon meets Liz Lenten
Date Published: 5th August 2016

Liz Lenten formed AUBURN in the summer of 1999.

Their first gig was at the jam-packed launch party of Scarlet Records held at the salubrious and smoky Madame JoJo's in Soho to a completely packed and enthusiastic house. 

Their first EP, Sweet Sebastian, received extensive airplay and sold out of its limited pressing within 2 weeks. They then teamed up with producer Tim Pettit, (Travis, Sun House and Carlene Carter) and recorded For Life, which also got great radio support and the band toured the UK and played many live radio sessions. 

The debut Album DREAMS was released in 2003 and AUBURN toured with SOPHIE ELLIS BEXTOR in the UK and EUROPE, playing to 40,000 people. In 2005 CRY reached no 5 in the indie video charts after which they took a break and Liz concentrated on parenthood! 

Since then Liz has continued to work as a vocal coach, artist manager, record label, songwriter and choral director. She was 'SING UP' (governments' national singing campaign) lead facilitator/vocal advisor for Lincolnshire; has conducted the London Mozart Players Orchestra with the South Holland Choirs; written for and directed a 1000 voice kids choir for 'Sing 66' and manages several artists including award-winning folk artist ELIZA CARTHY and New Yorker GALIA ARAD.

She has just released the third of her records to be made in Nashville with legendary producer Thom Jutz, and I truly think that it may be her best yet.

I am very fond of Liz, and never need much of an excuse to talk to her, and so, when I heard that all sorts of things had been happening on Planet Liz, I phoned her up...

GONZO WEEKLY #193: Jon meets Martin Birke
Date Published: 29th July 2016

Martin Birke is an electronic percussionist and composer of electronic/experimental and ambient music who started out as a gifted drummer at age 7 playing in talent shows, church bands and eventually his own bands. In his mid-twenties, Martin's instrumentals began appearing on several CD samplers from labels Ladd-Frith, The Music Independent, Priority, and AP. In the mid-90's Martin (with recording partner Aaron Kinney) was hired by The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre to score several pieces for the company and at the same time both his original and experimental bands Sandbox Trio and Casualty Park were signed to the Frank Mark Arts label in Germany. With that label he toured and recorded with both bands yielding several well received albums including many one-off and side projects with various artists. Sandbox Trio did many unique live shows and independent film scores and industrial TV commercials. The band utilized artfully handcrafted instruments combined with the latest in electronic and acoustic drums and has been Martin's favourite project through out his career. Sandbox Trio continued until the sudden tragic death of Chuck Ehlis in 2000 who was vital to the trio's sound creation and performance capabilities. Casualty Park was the duo of Aaron and Martin who created three albums, performed many live shows and together scored director Joe Carnahan's first feature film, "Blood Guts Bullets and Octane" in 1998. Casualty Park's electro-pop/rock music was also featured on the Oxygen Network with their video West Texas directed by Emmy Award winner Michael Maas. Martin and Aaron also scored original pieces for Complexions Ballet Company directed by former Alvin Ailey choreographers Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson. The bands both received very good press reviews and even the praise of Martin's idol, former Depeche Mode music director, Alan Wilder.

In 2005, Genre Peak was born as a trio with recording engineer Christopher Scott Cooper co-producing the band.

The trio embarked on many live performances around northern California and San Francisco featuring Martin on lead vocals and electronic percussion, Daniel Panasenko on Chapman Stick and Stephen Sullivan on guitar-synths and backing vocals. Ends of the Earth was Genre Peak's first album in 2006, but fell short of Martin's expectations receiving mixed reviews. While GP was a tight professional trio doing excellent recordings and gigs and having been invited to perform at SXSW, they disbanded in late 2006.

In 2007-2008 Martin, not wanting to sing lead vocals anymore and being the songwriter and director of the project, realized that Genre Peak would work better as a total collaborative project using guest musicians and singers including former Japan bassist Mick Karn, Canadian singer Tara C. Taylor, violinist Benito Cortez and bassist Gustaf Fjelstrom. Along with Stephen Sullivan and producer/guitarist Christopher Scott Cooper, with wonderful remixes from UK band Stereoskop and French band Kiss & Fly, Genre Peak's second album Preternatural was a much more well received album garnishing good press reviews. A video for the album track Hell on the Surface was showcased at the Sacramento Film & Music Festival.

In 2010, established prog-rock singer Percy Howard (Meridiem, NUS) joined Martin to form the project Hardboiled Wonderland. The duo's debut trip-hop album, As Small As A World And Large As Alone was released on Rob Ayling's Gonzo MultiMedia UK label with several live performances in their hometown of Sacramento. The record received mixed reviews for its electronica and beautifully soulful vocals, winning praise from most and confusion by others in the music press. This album remains a triumph in its brilliant structure and realization. Howard went on to appear on Genre Peak's 2012 release Redux singing on tracks Words Surround Us and a remix of Blue Filter. Redux was released by Gonzo MultiMedia UK and featured Martin's favourite tracks off Ends of the Earth and Preternatural. 2013 saw the release Genre Peaks's 9 Microspheres, a completely ambient album composed by Stephen Sullivan and Martin. The album received very good reviews and despite the absence of vocalists and percussion was GP's most successful record to date. A limited edition CD was made available at the official GP website and the digital version released through Gonzo.

In 2013 Martin approached former Japan multi-instrumentalist and drummer Steve Jansen to remix Preternatural's Mick Karn track Wear it Well. Steve did an entire re-working of the track and with Fast Arrow vocalist Lesley Braden, the track kicked-off the making of Genre Peak's current record Your Sleekest Engine. Over the 2 year writing and tracking of GP's fourth studio album.

Martin collaborated with vocalist Charlie Woodward on several songs. Charlie incorporated German and English, writing all the lyrics for the tracks he collaborated on. Legendary trumpet player Jon Hassell agreed to co-writing the track Metanoia, and Counting Crows bassist Matt Malley added bass on two new tracks. Ryuichi Sakamoto had agreed to a remix but health issues got in the way. Christopher Scott Cooper has recorded, mixed and added guitar on several tracks.Richard Barbieri did a wonderful remix of Fix Me Deeper a track Martin wrote with Palestinian-American artist Manal Deeb both versions where released as CD/digital single in October 2015, featuring Manal's artwork and spoken words Your Sleekest Engine proves to be the most involved and difficult album so far and is a completely collaborative project released worldwide on CD and Digital March 18th 2016.

Martin currently resides in northern California performing with Genre Peak, solo, and with improv quartet 4th World and other projects. He scored naturalist Dell Cullum's short film Cleaning The Sands Of Time in 2014. . Martin is involved with film score and industrial commercials. Genre Peak will continue. Martin was recently hired to score Dell Cullum's forthcoming film on world teacher Billy Strong: The Green Explorer, this film will premier in New York in August of 2016.

It has been ages since I spoke to Martin, so I gave him a ring..

CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIERES: Episode Thirty Six
Date Published: 23rd July 2016

CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIÈRES:

Episode Thirty-Six

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 week we have a Soft Machine Peel session from 1969, Caravan live in 1972, a Kevin Ayers single from 1970, Mike Ratledge solo, Isotope featuring Hugh Hopper, a cosmic Gong remix, some Faust, Slapp Happy, a Fred Frith piano miniature, also '90s tracks from Mother Gong, Robert Wyatt, Ultramarine, Red Snapper and Kid Loco. From today's Canterbury, music from Syd Arthur, Jamie Dams, Arlet and Frances Knight.

FRIDAY NIGHT PROGRESSIVE #243
Date Published: 23rd July 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.

Strange Fruit #172
Date Published: 23rd July 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
