CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIÈRES: Episode Twelve

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 TWELVE: Something from one of Hugh Hopper's favourite albums along with a couple of things from his first solo album. Also Robert Wyatt, Matching Mole, News From Babel, System 7, Fred Frith goes Motown and a celebrity Kevin Ayers cover from the Royal Albert Hall last March. From the Canterbury of today: Ekoda Map, Bison Bonasus and Syd Arthur plus a couple of live semi-acoustic sets from semi-dormant prog-monsters The Boot Lagoon. And a surprise cameo from reclusive novelist-genius Thomas Pynchon.
