FRIDAY NIGHT PROGRESSIVE #286
Date Published: 21st July 2017

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 MAGAZINE #244/5
Date Published: 21st July 2017

What? Another article about the Beatles?

The band split up 47 years ago, two of them are now dead, and the remaining ones lurch happily from project to project but have not done anything which is truly culturally significant for many years.

“Why does everybody love the Beatles?” asked Olivia as we started to write this introduction together, with me slaving over a hot iPad in North Devon and her typing busily away in Norfolk.

It’s a pretty good question. And, as I really had no idea what I was going to dictate in this introduction for a radio show that is basically a jolly chat between me and my old mate Neil, I’m going to have a bash at answering that question.

It would be easy to say that the Beatles are important because their music was so bloody good. But the only Beatles records anybody usually cites were produced after 1965, and even then, the band were responsible for some terrible records buried amongst the rest. One record that has already irritated the hell out of me is ‘She’s a Woman’. For fuck’s sake! McCartney opens with this rhyming couplet:

“My girl, she gives me presents,
I know that she’s no peasant!”

What the fuck? I know that he was a council estate boy made good, who by this time was shagging the daughter of a Harley Street surgeon, and a well known actress in her own right, but those lyrics are crass to the nth degree.

And ‘Obla Di Obla Da’! McCartney is singing in the sort of ethnic patois made popular by Amos and fucking Andy! If any white musician, these days, went on stage singing a song in such an exaggerated West Indian accent, they would quite rightly be accused of racism, and the record would be certainly banned. But for every song like this, there were half a dozen very good songs and a few utter masterpieces. But that’s not the reason the band are still important today.

They are important because they were the first. They broke the mould, in fact the new mould which – to a certain extent, at least – is still functioning today.

But it’s more than that. For those of us that believe in a sort of geomantic historiography surrounding certain pieces of music, the Beatles truly were the “four or five magicians” alluded to in the Magical Mystery Tour movie, and the world has never been quite the same since the band split.

I know that is the sort of hippy dippy nonsense which will make Olivia and those of her ilk roll their eyes in irritation, but, to me at least, it is true. But I have been across the Mexican desert looking for vampires, so what do I know?

Over the years, in these pages and elsewhere, I have mentioned my interest in alternative history. I have even mentioned alternative history and the Beatles, but that is a totally different story. However, quite possibly the nearest that one can get to alternative history of one’s favourite rock and roll bands is by looking at the material that they recorded but didn’t release. Indeed, the late John Entwistle of The Who once curated a compilation album of his band’s outtakes, claiming that he was doing it as an exercise in what the band could have done if their history had been different. With that in mind, the fact that I have been interested in the unreleased music of the Beatles for many years, and even wrote a book on the subject nearly 30 years ago, seems a perfectly reasonable thing to do.

My old mate Neil Nixon – someone I have known for many years – is also interested in the minutiae  of the highways and byways of rock and roll. And indeed, our mutual friend Andy Roberts once said that we were the only two people involved in the search for UFOs who could talk to him about bands like ‘Mighty Baby’. That as may be, but Neil and I have whiled away many happy hours talking about such things over the years. One of the first things I did when Rob Ayling asked me to be in charge of the nascent Gonzo books was the contact Neil because I felt sure that he had something up his sleeve that would be suitably Gonzo-esque, but also fit into our rock and roll sensibilities. I was right, and the second book he did for us was about… guess what? The myths and legends surrounding the fab four!

This year, as pretty well anyone will know, is the 50th anniversary of Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, an album which many people believe did indeed change the world. But it is also the half century of several other breakthrough moments in the Beatles’ career. And so, in the first of two radio shows (the second one will be recorded and broadcast at the end of the year) you get the chance here to listen to Neil and me discussing the importance of a little song called ‘All You Need is Love’ and various other related subjects.

Enjoy!

Canterbury Sans Frontieres #48
Date Published: 14th July 2017

CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIÈRES:

Episode Forty—Eight

We 0at 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 FEATURES:

http://canterburywithoutborders.blogspot.com/2017/07/episode-48.html

Obscure French covers of Kevin Ayers' "Why Are We Sleeping?" and Robert Wyatt's "Alifie", everyone's favourite part of Gong's "Angel's Egg" album, National Health (with Bill Bruford) and Kevin Ayers (with Andy Summers) live in '76, Robert Wyatt with Evan Parker, Hugh Hopper with Miller/Pyle/Malherbe, more modular synth beauty from Smith and Ciani, Terry Riley live in Paris in '72, spiritual jazz from The Lloyd McNeill Quartet, Carlos Santana with Alice Coltrane and a Matching Mole classic. From today's Canterbury, Syd Arthur live in Brighton, Arlet live in Ramsgate and a soundtrack miniature from sound artist Seth Scott.

GONZO WEEKLY #241: Carol Hodge interview
Date Published: 30th June 2017

Carol Hodge is a remarkable young lady and possessed of a remarkable talent. I first heard about her when she joined ex-Crass vocalist Steve Ignorant about halfway through his ‘Last Supper’ world tour, in which he performed songs by Crass for the last time, at least in the style to which we have become accustomed over the past three and a half decades.

Carol had some pretty big boots to fill, as she was singing material originally recorded by the legendary Eve Libertine back in the day. Her renditions of ‘Shaved Women’ and ‘Poison in a Pretty Pill’ were particularly impressive. For lots of reasons, mostly health ones, I was not able to go to any of the shows, but I followed the tour avidly on YouTube. The final show, at what was then The Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, is now available in a swish DVD set with a cover by yours truly, from Gonzo. So you can see it for yourself.

There were several highlights from this show; not the least being when Eve Libertine joined her on stage for an impromptu rendition of the aforementioned ‘Shaved Women’. But the highlight for me, which always brings a hint of a tear to my eye, was when the band played ‘Bloody Revolutions’ for the last time, and Steve was obviously overcome with emotion as well. Then up came Carol with a big sisterly look on her face, and held his hand as the two of them finished off the song:

“Nothing changed for all the death, that their ideas created
It's just the same fascistic games, but the rules aren't clearly stated
Nothing's really different 'cause all government's the same
They can call it freedom, but slavery is the game
There's nothing that you offer but a dream of last year’s hero
The truth of revolution, brother...is year zero.”

Hell! Forget about pinpricks of tears. The first time I saw this I was blubbing like a big blubby thing, and I still find it massively moving to this day.

After seeing that, I decided that I needed to find out more about Ms. Hodge.

Carol adopted the personality of Miss Crystal Grenade, an existentialist Victorian artist, singer and freak show performer with a peculiarly deformed hand. Accompanying herself on piano, and with some songs featuring multi-tracked vocals (presumably by her), this music fills the same sort of cultural territory as did the recent BBC detective series Ripper Street; a gloriously aesthetic re-creation of the latter days of Victorian London. In Miss Crystal Grenade this slice of ur-historical synthesis now has the perfect soundtrack.

I was so impressed by this that I rang my old friend, and boss, Rob Ayling, the Gonzo Grande Fromage, who was equally impressed, and proceeded to sign Crystal Grenade to Gonzo.

Then, a few months later, I was in Manchester with Corinna, to see Peter Gabriel performing an emotionally tinged show on his ‘Back to Front’ tour. We had a couple of days in Manchester, and I wanted to do some filming in the Natural History Museum there, but I took the opportunity to arrange an assignation with Carol, and Corinna, Carol and I spent a happy hour chit chatting in the museum gift shop.

Then, in 2014, Carol came and sang at the Weird Weekend in character as her existential Victorian waif and – with the addition of a few more interviews over the years – that brings the story pretty much up to date.

EXCEPT (and this is a bloody great big except), this year Steve Ignorant and his band Slice of Life, for whom Carol still sings, played Glastonbury. Steve was the headlining act at the final Weird Weekend last summer, and for Igs & co. to have performed such a prestigious event seemed too culturally significant for us to ignore. Carol (who seems to have ditched her Victorian persona for the moment) has also got an exciting new project in the works, and so I decided that it would be jolly good to phone her up and talk about both of these things.

FRIDAY NIGHT PROGRESSIVE #283
Date Published: 16th June 2017

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 #216
Date Published: 16th June 2017

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).

Neil Nixon, the founder and presenter of the show has released a book about rare albums for Gonzo Multimedia. The show is broadcast on Miskin Radio every Sunday from 10-00-midnight.

Canterbury Sans Frontieres #47
Date Published: 16th June 2017

CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIÈRES:

Episode Forty—seven

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 FEATURES:

Robert Wyatt live on BBC TV in 1983, Caravan and Hatfield both live in '74, a standout track from a lesser Gong album, something newish from North Sea Radio Orchestra, something oldish from Penguin Cafe Orchestra, a classic slab of Hendrix, something from Soft Machine around the time they were touring with him, Alice Coltrane, an extraordinary tribute to her by Seattle's Sun O))), almost-forgotten Anglo-French Henry Cow-influenced band Officer!, a couple of new things from Bristol's BLOOM collective (Evil Usses, Spindle Ensemble) and a tribute to BBC Radiophonic Workshop's star employee Delia Derbyshire. The middle hour is dedicated to the pioneering studio work of Osbourne Ruddock, a.k.a. King Tubby, in the form of a mix of some of his finest 70s dub tracks.
