CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIÈRES: Episode Twenty Nine

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
