FRIDAY NIGHT PROGRESSIVE #226
Date Published: 5th February 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 #167: Jon meets Erik Norlander
Date Published: 30th January 2016

In the three years since I first started working with Gonzo Multimedia several of the artists associated with the company have become personal friends. People Like Judge Smith, Liz Lenten and Erik Norlander.

For those of you not in the know Erik Norlander is a progressive rock keyboardist, composer and producer from California. He has written and produced over 30 albums since 1993 with his chanteuse spouse Lana Lane, his band Rocket Scientists, his own solo albums and numerous guest appearances. Erik's evocative keyboard technique is reminiscent of the legendary Keith Emerson, Rick Wakeman, Patrick Moraz and Jon Lord while still very unique and forward-moving in its own right. Erik takes many of the classic riffs and phrases of his heroes and reinvents them with highly emotional pitch bending, vibrato and authoritative phrasing.

This technique combines brilliantly with Erik's mastery of sound and production. Erik has personally led sound design efforts on several major brand synthesizers, and his knowledge of synthesis and audio engineering are second to none. Erik's perpetual live use of vintage and classic instruments, particularly Moog synthesizers, give his concerts a depth and authenticity of sound seldom seen in modern stage productions.

Erik Norlander was born in Hollywood, California, and grew up studying both jazz and classical music on several instruments from a young age through his years at the university where he also graduated with a degree in English Literature. While clearly a prog rocker, Erik is surprisingly quite adamant that he prefers melody over flashy playing and strong songwriting over artsy meandering.

Rocket Scientists is a progressive rock band formed in the late 1980s by keyboardist Erik Norlander and vocalist / guitarist Mark McCrite. The band released their first CD, Earthbound, in 1993 joined by session bassist Don Schiff. Schiff quickly became a part of the band for their second release in 1995, Brutal Architecture, and the three toured in the US and Europe in 1997 along with drummer Tommy Amato culminating in the live CD, Earth Below and Sky Above: Live in Europe and America. In 1999, Rocket Scientists released Oblivion Days.

In 2015 they released their 7th studio album, Refuel. The full-length album combines both vocal and instrumental songs with the band's signature songwriting, performance and production style in 12 unforgettable tracks. Refuel also features stellar performances by guest musicians Gregg Bissonette (drums), vocalists Lana Lane and Kelly Keeling along with others including the brass players from the band's previous release, Supernatural Highways, and Norlander's Hommage Symphonique album which also featured Schiff and McCrite.

“Refuel is nothing less than a return to the big, fat sound that these guys have possessed; sounding like a real band, getting together to make real music, in a real studio ” - Tommy Hash, Ytsejam

“In the famous Rocket Scientists style, this is quintessential and entertaining melodic progressive rock.” - Craig Hartranft, Dangerdog

Erik Norlander has been featured multiple times in KEYBOARD magazine in the USA as well as four appearances in the Japanese KEYBOARD magazine along with multiple appearances in BURRN!, STRANGE DAYS, PROGRESSION and ELECTRONIC MUSICIAN. He has been interviewed on numerous radio shows and continues to receive energized reviews in numerous publications around the world.

Something that is less well known is that Erik is one of the sponsors of the annual Weird Weekend that I promote in North Devon each year. In the current financial climate sponsors are getting hard to find, and I would like to publically thank Erik for his generosity.

It has been a long time since we spoke, so just before Christmas I gave him a ring, basically so we could chew the fat...

CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIERES: Episode Thirty
Date Published: 23rd January 2016

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?

 Classics from Soft Machine and Caravan, a Spanish band clearly influenced by both of these groups, a pre-Kraftwerk curiosity, Alice Coltrane, Tortoise, some Bowie/Eno ambience and an exploration of the peripheral Canterbury contributions made by synth pioneer Francis Monkman. This episode also features a guest selection from, and chat with, local academic Alan Payne about this PhD research on the Canterbury scene.

GONZO WEEKLY #166: Jon meets Don Falcone of Spirits Burning
Date Published: 23rd January 2016

Don Falcone is a remarkable man. I first interviewed him some years ago when he explained to me the concept behind his band Spirits Burning. "The original concept was to basically celebrate space rock and so what I did was, I put out a call – I guess it was in 1997 – to a number of musicians to say would you be interested in gathering and celebrating space rock?

And what I think has developed over that time given some of my interests, and then also what I kind of perceive as the openness and possibilities of space rock, and that includes everything from synth and electronic music. There is a folk and a blues aspect in some space rock, prog rock and art rock and then if you take it a little further, what some might call experimental music.  So at some point I think it has become a celebration of music possibilities and then the other side of it, I was real influenced and also a big fan of the Brian Eno albums, especially the early ones and things like Bob Calvert,  places you’d have these interesting  combinations of people.

Kind of unexpected combinations, so you’d have the more art rock, Roxy Music kind of people and Fripp from heavily respected King Crimson and you’d have members of Hawkwind and The Pink Fairies, and you’d get these kind of happy accidents.  I really wanted to see what I  could do bringing together people who you wouldn’t normally see coming together.  I wasn’t in the position of – financially – of bringing in big name players, so we’d end up having a combination of some people from more known bands of the ‘70s and the ‘80s, and then some people from bands who were influenced or liked those people and so you would have bands that were kind of up and coming – let’s say at that period of time, late ‘90s early 2000s – so you have this interesting mix of past skilled musicians and a kind of fresh take on it."

The thing that I found so interesting about the project is that it was my first real exposure to the idea of making music via file sharing between people who might be on entirely different continents. Don explained to me how it worked:

"I have a home studio which is basically an extra room in the house here that has a Pro Tools system and I used to work for Digidesign for 11 years so I was kind of able to be on the cutting edge of inheriting equipment, and there was another system I used way back before I worked at Digidesign and people like Daevid Allen used to visit the bay area here in – you know we are pretty close to San Francisco – and he used to visit once a year and he would actually record here. But the majority of musicians are actually scattered across the world so there’s a – I think on the newest CD, there’s 10 to 15 people from outside the United States.  Either in South America, or Europe, and then there’s others.

I think that another thing that has happened  is that there’s a number of people who used to live in San Francisco and who have moved away. What’s happened, going back to the old days, some people long distance, would send me DAT tapes – it could go both ways also.  I could start a tune, then send them something, and they would record their track, or I could actually have them start a tune and they would send me something first.  But in the old days, which were not really that long ago, we’re talking maybe 14/15 years ago, the majority of people were communicating with DAT or CDRs. Nowadays, it is more likely that people are posting to places like Dropbox or YouSendIt or SendSpace. For example, the person starting the piece can post a *.wav or *.mp3 to get the initial track started, to hear it..."

He expanded on this in an interview with our friend and colleague Doug Harr for this very magazine back in 2014: "Collaborating in this way, I thought it was a great way to write or start pieces and then have other people change that track and turn it into something else, and also to have them start pieces.  So it wasn’t just about me – I’ve always felt that the best band is one where everybody is as good as or better than me.  The other thing is, from the beginning – I wanted to make this a celebration of space rock – over time what it’s morphed into is a celebration of collaborating – the result is lots of space rock but there’s prog and other elements – people taking the chance to play with others they would not normally play with.  Slowly over the years, I’ve asked people and they’ve said “yes” – so for example I asked Steven Wilson (of Porcupine Tree) and he agreed, Daevid Allen (from the band Gong) comes in when he is here.  And there are several collaborators from Hawkwind. Most of the recent recording sessions now happen remotely, although Cyrille (Verdeaux from Clearlight) and others still come here to record.  To continue being relevant, I do think I have to vary the classic artists involved and mix in more contemporary performers."

And now there is a new album, but it is an album with a difference. A sci-fi musical adaptation of Mack Maloney’s “Starhawk” novel, featuring Daevid Allen (Gong), Hawkwind family members Alan Davey, Paul Hayles, Jerry Richards, Nik Turner, Twink, & Bridget Wishart, plus Robert Berry (3), Keith Christmas (Bowie), John Ellis (Gabriel), Kev Ellis (Space Cadets), Matt Malley (Counting Crows), Nigel Mazlyn Jones, Pete Pavli (High Tide), Ken Pustelnik (The Groundhogs), Billy Sherwood (Yes), Judge Smith (VDGG), Steffe Sharpstrings (Here and Now), Cyrille Verdeaux (Clearlight), Steve York, & more . . .

It really doesn't get much better than this. Check it out boys and girls:

CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIÈRES: Episode Twenty Nine
Date Published: 8th January 2016

CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIÈRES:

Episode Twenty 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:

The hidden origins of a Matching Mole classic, a ridiculous organ solo by Mike Ratledge (Soft Machine live '67), profound silliness from Gong in '73, one of Hugh Hopper's last projects (featuring Lol Coxhill and Robert Wyatt), some Beefheart and Kevin Ayers, various works involving drummer/visionary Charles Hayward (Quiet Sun, This Heat, Fred Frith's Massacre trio, etc.), Canterbury-sounding pieces from Toronto and Texas, and an hour of diverse instrumental music which has emerged from the Cathedral City in recent times

GONZO WEEKLY #164: Jon meets Ian Abrahams
Date Published: 8th January 2016

One of my favourite authors working within this field that they call rock and roll is Ian Abrahams who is not only an extraordinarily good writer and researcher, but a damned nice bloke as well. I first came across him by accident when I was laying out a new edition of his entertaining and informative book about The Waterboys, who are – by the way – a band of whose music I am rather fond.

Working with him on this project was a great pleasure, and I remember telling him at the end of it that I hope we do something together in the future.

Then, some months after, I was talking to the ever talented Don Falcone about his work with one-time Hawkwind chanteuse Bridget Wishart, and somehow Ian’s name came up in the conversation. I then interviewed the lovely Bridget who – in passing – told me that she had been working on a book about the history of the British Free Festival movements alongside – you’ve guessed it – Ian Abrahams.

Fast forward a few more months, past all the business deals and things that I neither understand nor have anything to do with, and I found myself working with Ian again.

The idea of an oral history of the British Free Festival movement is such a good one, that I wonder why nobody had thought of it before. Jonathon Green was responsible for two excellent books of oral history covering the early days of the British ‘Underground’, but this was nearly all set in the 1960’s and mostly in London whereas the whole concept of the Free Festival movement was that it was a rural rather than an urban exercise, and in many cases was the only time that many of the revellers ever went into the countryside.

When I started to read an early version of Ian and Bridget’s book for the first time I was mildly surprised to see how many of the main protagonists I knew personally or at least had met. Some were, or had been, friends of mine. And several still were.

Although I was too young to have attended the legendary events in the 1970’s I was at quite a few of the most notable events, such as the Treworgey Tree Fayre which was held in Southern Cornwall in 1989 and which was one of the most anarchic events of its time. I enjoyed it massively, and thought it was splendid. But with the benefit of hindsight, if I am truthful, I can see why the powers that be would not let events like that continue.

So, with the book complete and its appearance for sale in the shops imminent, I decided that it would be great fun to have a chat with Ian about this enormous project.

So I did.
