FRIDAY NIGHT PROGRESSIVE #187
Date Published: 27th March 2015

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 #121 - Jon meets Annie Haslam
Date Published: 14th March 2015

Annie Haslam is an English progressive rock vocalist, songwriter and visual artist. Annie is best known for her five-octave voice and for being the lead vocalist for the English Classical Rock band Renaissance. She was born in Bolton, Lancashire, a cotton-mill town. As a child Annie wanted to be a nurse, a ballet dancer, and later and more realistically, a fashion designer. She became a fashion student in Cornwall and ended up working for several clothing designers in London before ending up with a Saville Row tailor, where she admits that she learned much more than she had learnt being in the fashion houses!

Then came the music…

There was already music flowing through her family: her father George, who had been an amateur comedian singer (he was a tenor), and brother Michael, who was managed by Beatles manager Brian Epstein. He toured with the Beatles on their Christmas package-tour in the early '60s. But it was much later when Annie realised that she too was a singer.

She began studying under opera singer Sybil Knight in 1970 and developed her extraordinary five-octave vocal range. In 1971 she became the lead singer of Renaissance after answering an ad in Melody Maker. She auditioned for the band in Surrey and the rest is history. Renaissance produced a surprising amount of groundbreaking music in a surprisingly short period of time. It only took five years for them to go from playing small clubs to shows at the Carnegie Hall and later The Royal Albert Hall.

In 1977 she began her solo career with her album Annie in Wonderland, which was produced by Roy Wood who played most of the instruments, and who also duetted with her on one track I Never Believed in Love. The album was a new venture for Annie, Roy taking her into different realms of music from jazz to pop to classical!

Annie also performed Reaching Out with the London Symphony Orchestra on the Intergalactic Touring Band album. She has since released eight studio albums, three of which were released through her own record label, White Dove Records, the highlight of that CD collection being Still Life with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Louis Clark; a semi-classical masterpiece.

In 1989 Annie secured a record contract with Epic records and released a self-titled album produced by Larry Fast. Annie co-wrote a song called Celestine with Larry, and she also wrote a song with Peter Bliss called One Love. Justin Hayward was a guest on The Angels Cry, a song that he had written originally for Agnetha from ABBA.

 She has also collaborated with Steve Howe, Raphael Rudd, Pete Townshend, Phil Collins, Justin Hayward, Tony Visconti and the Carl Perkins family, to name but a few.

The ‘Live’ Studio Concert, recorded in Philadelphia in 1997, was Annie’s first solo DVD release.

 Annie released an EP called Night and Day, her first solo recording for some years, with Welsh rock band Magenta in 2006. The song was specially written for her by the band. Annie - who had recently become a painter - contributed the artwork for the EP, the art inspired by a story told to her by Christina from Magenta!

Then came the Art…

This came out of the blue when she first started back in 2002. But she has spread her wings artistically since, and become very prolific. Her paintings grace the walls of homes across the world including China, Russia, Japan, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, England, USA, Canada, South America and Italy. Annie had three pieces of art shown in the Florence Biennale in Florence, Italy in December 2005.

In addition to gallery showings she has four hand painted guitars in various Hard Rock Cafes and was commissioned by Martin Guitars to paint one of their Dreadnought acoustic guitars, which is now displayed in the company’s guitar museum in Nazareth, PA. They also commissioned her to paint an acoustic guitar for the NAMM Music Convention, LA in January 2007. Apart from keeping her art gallery stocked with new paintings online, Annie paints commissioned electric violins for Wood's Violins. Mark Wood, who owns the company, is lead violinist with Trans Siberian Orchestra.

Annie currently resides in Central Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA. Last time we spoke to her was just after she and long term musical partner Michael Dunsford had reformed Renaissance and crowdfunded an extraordinary new album.

But then, after we spoke, tragedy struck and Michael Dunsford died suddenly. Showing immense bravery, Annie continued with the project, so when I telephoned her up last Sunday evening, we had lots to talk about…

GONZO WEEKLY #120: Jon and Billy James talk about Frank Zappa
Date Published: 7th March 2015

In this issue we review a recent DVD featuring FZ between 1969-73; this particular era of Frank Zappa's career has always been dear to me, so I was very much looking forward to watching the DVD. Then I discovered that one of the major contributors was our old mate Billy James, PR Guru with Glass Onyon, and mainman of the ever shifting Ant-Bee project.

So I gave him a ring......

GONZO WEEKLY #119: Jon meets Eliza Carthy
Date Published: 28th February 2015

Eliza Carthy (born 23 August 1975) is an English folk musician known for both singing and playing fiddle. She is the daughter of English folk musicians singer/guitarist Martin Carthy and singer Norma Waterson. Carthy was born in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England. At the age of thirteen Carthy formed the Waterdaughters with her mother, aunt (Lal Waterson) and cousin Maria Knight. She has subsequently worked with Nancy Kerr, with her parents as Waterson:Carthy, and as part of the 'supergroup' Blue Murder, in addition to her own solo work. She went to school at Fyling Hall School in North Yorkshire.

Eliza Carthy led the vocals as a member of Blue Murder on the song I Bid You Goodnight found on the CD tribute to the music of Joseph Spence & the Pinder family called Out On the Rolling Sea (1994) (Green Linnet). Along with Eliza are Lal Waterson, Norma Waterson, Jim Boyes, Martin Carthy, Barry Coope, Lester Simpson and Mike Waterson. She has twice been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize for UK album of the year: in 1998 for Red Rice, and again in 2003 for Anglicana.

Eliza was a guest on the album Mermaid Avenue by Billy Bragg and Wilco. Eliza and Billy also recorded together on the song My Father's Mansions, which appeared on the Pete Seeger tribute album called Where Have All The flowers Gone (1998).

Eliza Carthy has received Mercury Prize nominations, BBC Radio 2 folk awards and innumerable other accolades over a career during which she has performed and recorded with a diverse array of artists from Paul Weller to The Wainwrights and Nick Cave to Joan Baez.   A truly inventive and innovative singer-songwriter and fiddle-player, Eliza is one of the most impressive and engaging performers of her generation.  Yorkshire-born and now Edinburgh-based, Eliza grew up immersed in the world of traditional music. 

She divides her time between touring and recording with her legendary parents and numerous pioneering solo and band projects.  (‘Gift’, recorded with her mother, won the Best Album at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2011.)

Describing herself simply as a ‘modern British musician’, she has helped revitalise folk music making it relevant to new audiences, capturing the most hardened of dissenters with intelligent, charismatic and boundary-crossing performances.  She continues to be a regular guest on the BBC Radio 2 Mark Radcliffe Show and ‘Later with Jools’.

After a series of ground-breaking and award-winning albums, Jim Moray has been hailed as a pivotal influence by a new generation of folk musicians. 

Moray started off his career recording his first album ‘Sweet England’ while still studying classical composition at Birmingham Conservatoire and emerged onto the UK folk scene in 2003. 

His re-imagining of English traditional music blended with orchestral flourishes, guitars and electronics earned him the unprecedented combination of ‘Best Newcomer’ and ‘Best Album’ at the 2004 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.  More recently Jim has been nominated for Best Album, Best Trad Track and Folk Singer Of The Year in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

In 2013 they joined forces for one tour. Eliza had been touring for twenty one years and it was be ten years since Jim put out his first album.  To mark these joint achievements, they shared a ten-piece folk super-group of some of this nation’s most talented instrumentalists and playing a set each featuring material from across their extraordinary careers.

FRIDAY NIGHT PROGRESSIVE #182
Date Published: 20th February 2015

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.

 This week on FNP # 182

Strange Fruit #106
Date Published: 7th February 2015

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). 

Strange Fruit founding presenter Neil Nixon has just released a book about rare albums for Gonzo Multimedia.  The show is broadcast on Miskin Radio every Sunday from 10-00-midnight.

However, this week we introduce you to a new face, and we asked Jeremy Smith to introduce himself, and he wrote the following:

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.  At the age of 13, I discovered progressive music and went to my first gig which was Barclay James Harvest at Guildford Civic Hall.  This was shortly followed by what is still one of the best gigs I can remember, Alice Cooper and Roxy Music at Wembley. 

In 1976, I found myself going to the Nashville every week to see the Stranglers where my long hair and flares soon started looking out of place, but it was always the music that I loved and especially seeing bands in pubs and clubs. 

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, whether it is bands from the seventies, eighties and nineties who never quite made it, unsigned bands of today from all over the world, or those bands that have kept going for twenty or thirty years through their love of music and performing rather than financial reward.

GONZO WEEKLY #116: Jon Meets Jeremy
Date Published: 7th February 2015

Strange Fruit founding presenter Neil Nixon has just released a book about rare albums for Gonzo Multimedia.  The show is broadcast on Miskin Radio every Sunday from 10-00-midnight.

However, this week we introduce you to a new face, 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!

We asked Jeremy Smith to introduce himself, and he wrote the following:

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.  At the age of 13, I discovered progressive music and went to my first gig which was Barclay James Harvest at Guildford Civic Hall.  This was shortly followed by what is still one of the best gigs I can remember, Alice Cooper and Roxy Music at Wembley.

This guy sounded intriguing so, to welcome him to the  Gonzo Family, I rang him up for a chat. Now the hunter has become the hunted, or at least the interviewer has become the interviewee...

GONZO WEEKLY #116: Jon meets Markus
Date Published: 7th February 2015

Robert Wyatt started out as the drummer and singer for Soft Machine, who shared a residency at Middle Earth with Pink Floyd and toured America with Jimi Hendrix. He brought a Bohemian and jazz outlook to the ‘60s rock scene, having honed his drumming skills in a shed at the end of Robert Graves' garden in Mallorca.

His life took an abrupt turn after he fell from a fourth-floor window at a party and was paralysed from the waist down. He reinvented himself as a singer and composer with the extraordinary album Rock Bottom that has brought him a loyal following not just in Britain but in France, Italy and Germany. For about a decade he was a member of the Communist party, and in the early eighties his solo work was increasingly political.

October last year saw the release of Different Every Time: The Authorised Biography of Robert Wyatt by Marcus O'Dair. In promotion of the book Wyatt appeared at the Wire'​s "Off the Page" festival in Bristol on 26 September, and at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on 23 November. A companion compilation album, Different Every Time - Ex Machina / Benign Dictatorships was released on 18 November 2014. A month later Wyatt announced that he has stopped making music. “I thought, train drivers retire when they’re 65, so I will, as well,” Wyatt, now 69, told Uncut.

“I would say I’ve stopped, it’s a better word than retired. Fifty years in the saddle, it’s not nothing. It’s completely unplanned, my life, and it’s just reached this particular point.

Other things have happened – I’m more taken up by politics, to be honest, than music at the moment. Music tags along behind it. There is a pride in [stopping], I don’t want it to go off.”

Different Every Time is one of the best music biographies that I have read in years. So I telephoned up the author for a chat.
