GONZO MAGAZINE #269: Jon and Martin Springett talk about Pauline
Date Published: 12th January 2018

As many readers of my burblings will know, I spent my formative years in Hong Kong, only leaving a few months before I was twelve. I do not use the term “formative years” lightly, because a large amount of the stuff which has shaped my adult life came from my childhood years in the last jewel of the Imperial crown. I still dream in Cantonese, and remember much of my childhood, which in many ways was weird and wonderful, and in other ways would - these days - be judged as being quite horrific. Other things were pretty normal.

For my sixth birthday, for example, Uncle Mac, who was some office acquaintance of my Dad, a leading light in the local Amateur Dramatics Society, and - I discovered many years later - a notorious homosexual, (a snippet of information which is totally irrelevant to the main thrust of this narrative), gave me a book which would change my life. These days children don’t seem to read at this age; in recent years I have given youngsters of my acquaintance books that I think they would enjoy only to have them (and often their parents) stare at me in horror.

“I blummin’ hate books”, said one ungrateful child, which prompted me to give him a lecture about the importance of literacy, and the historical context of the Nazi book burnings, which I am sure that he ignored.

But in those days (as they are now) books were my favourite things, and so I devoured this one - The Horse and his Boy by C.S.Lewis with great pleasure. It was my first introduction to the magickal land of Narnia; a wonderful place where animals could talk, and there was a barely veiled Leonine Jesus. And from then on, the books were amongst my favourites. And they are still amongst my favourites today.

Unlike so many people that I know, I wasn’t disgusted to find out that the whole series could be interpreted as a Christian allegory. My family were, and are, church people, and - although I have drifted away from the established church in recent decades, having much the same attitude towards mainstream religion that I do to mainstream politics - much of my moral compass was forged in those faraway lands of make believe.

Narnia was also my first introduction to any sort of fantasy, high or otherwise, but over the years, even though I have read many more books in the genre, none of them have ever replaced the seven Chronicles of Narnia in my affections. And over the next year or so I devoured all of them.

Much though I loved the stories, I also loved the illustrations; especially the maps on the endpapers, which were all done by a lady called Pauline Baynes, whom - I later discovered - had also illustrated The Lord of the Rings and other books by J.R.R Tolkein.

And so the next five decades continued. I continued to read the Narnia books, and when the movies came out I thought they were terrible, mainly because they didn’t look like the landscape in my head that had been created and nurtured by five decades of exposure to the line drawings of Pauline Baynes.

And then I met Martin Springett.

Martin Springett was born in Crayford, Kent, England, in 1947. He studied art (that is he learned to play the Guitar) for two semesters at the Brassey School of Art in Hastings, Sussex. He emigrated to the West Coast of Canada in 1965, but returned to the UK in 1973 to pursue music in various bands. He spent time in Germany, and toured through Europe.

While in London Martin started to illustrate and design record covers for Columbia records. Uhis return to Vancouver, Martin carried on with music and illustrated various books and magazines. In 1978 he moved to Toronto, maintaining activity in every area where illustration is required. He released his own album, “The Gardening Club”, in 1983.

In 1984 Martin was commissioned to illustrate the cover of “The Summer Tree” by Guy Gavriel Kay. This and the subsequent volumes of The Fionavar Tapestry Trilogy were published around the world along with Martin’s covers.

Martin continued his work in fantasy illustration, illustrating many covers for fantasy novels, including “The Traveller In Black” by John Brunner. In 1990 he illustrated his first children's book, “Mei Ming and the Dragon’s Daughter” written by Lydia Bailey. Martin has just finished illustrating his sixth children's book, called “The Follower” by Richard Thompson. He has been nominated for various awards, including the Govenor Generals Award For Illustration. He has won the Aurora Award For Excellence in Fantasy Art, and two Silver Awrads from the Art Directors Club of Toronto and Best Classical Record Cover of The Year Award (UK).

Martin still pursues the Musical Muse and has several projects on the go.

Martin also knew Pauline Baynes. He writes:

“I first met Pauline Baynes when I was briefly commissioned to illustrate J R R Tolkien’s “Farmer Giles of Ham” about ten years ago. The project fell through, but it opened the door to one of the most unexpected and delightful experiences of my life; meeting and knowing Pauline Baynes. Pauline lived in what I can only describe as a magical cottage, in a serene sylvan setting in the beautiful Surrey countryside, a perfect place to create images for “Narnia” and “Middle Earth”. A bright, literate, lovely spark of a woman, she lived a strongly independent life with her two dogs, Lady and Bertha, and worked until the very last day of her life.

It doesn’t always go smoothly when one meets people whose work you admire, but we hit it off right away. I and my brother in law, David Shelton, the “pilot” on these annual visits, were completely charmed by her and by her fascinating environment as the cottage was filled with folk art and images by some very famous illustrators.

The original meeting with Pauline was a bit comical as I had her phone number but the wrong county code and kept getting a carpet store in Hastings. We were on a road trip and were constantly stopping to use a phone box, and I was getting very frustrated at not getting through. My dream of meeting her was not going to come true. I finally got the right number and we followed her directions; past Bird World, past great thicket, the blasted oak, the tall white tree etc, there was no name for her road if I recall. As soon we saw her cottage we knew we were in Narnia or as close as we would get.

Many people were of course fascinated by her connection with C S Lewis and Tolkien, or Ronald as she called him. It was more than a connection, it was a friendship born of Tolkien’s extremely high regard for her work. She and her husband Fritz often went on holiday with Ronald and Edith, and she admired Tolkien greatly. He wore, she said, “ …his erudition and religion lightly”.

I too was intrigued by this connection but much to Pauline’s delight, my main interest was asking her about her own work and of course comparing notes on an illustrative approach to “Farmer Giles”.

We visited many times after that, and on one occasion after a delicious meal with her at The Bluebell, the local pub, she mentioned that she had just about run out of her favorite illustration board. She had bought a stack of it as she said, “…in the middle ages…” and was faced with working on an inferior surface. Pauline painted in gauche for most of her 60 year career and what looked like firm pen work was in fact worked up with a brush. She habitually worked “size as”, as she felt she had to know what the art would look like when it was reproduced. At any rate, Dave and I volunteered to go to the London Graphics centre and buy a reasonable substitute board for her. I like to think it lasted up until the last brush stroke.

I sent her a silly illustration and a limerick after our first meeting which she really enjoyed, somehow it sums up the laughs and good times we had with our dear friend Pauline.

There was a young lad from Toronto

Who had to see Pauline B pronto !

He teamed with Dave

Who wouldn’t behave,

Those appalling young men from Toronto !”

As a fan of both Martin and Pauline, this gave me an excellent excuse to phone him up for a chat, and You can listen to our conversation here:

Canterbury Sans Frontieres #54
Date Published: 5th January 2018

CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIÈRES:

Episode Fifty-Four

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:

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of 1967, the middle hour of this episode features a mix of (British and US) psychedelia recorded in that watershed year, starting with the Soft Machine live at London's legendary Middle Earth that November, and including early instances of spacerock, acid-folk, heavy psych-rock and other flavours of the genre. Elsewhere in the programme we find Robert Wyatt in full Dada mode during his last full concert appearance (1974), a slab of classic 1970 Caravan, more Phil Miller (with In Cahoots and with Hugh Hopper), something from a late-period Lindsay Cooper dance score, an exquisite Kevin Ayers miniature and an extended tribute to Egg's late drummer Clive Brooks. From the Canterbury of now, a compilation track I'd overlooked from Koloto, a live studio session track from Syd Arthur and a very recent live recording from the Work8hop jazz octet, featuring pianist Frances Knight.

GONZO MAGAZINE #265/6: Jon meets Tony Klinger to talk about The
Date Published: 15th December 2017

During the second half of 1979, I was living in Canada; a suburb of Toronto, to be exact. I was staying with one bunch of relatives, and socialising with another bunch, who were nearer my age. Just to place this into context, that was the summer I turned 20.

Then, as now, the twin passions which fuelled my existence were rock and roll and the natural world. I spent much of my time wandering about the creeks and scrubland in the area, watching such delightful creatures as snapping turtles, mudpuppies, and spring peepers. I even had the opportunity to see the beginning of the North-South migration of the mighty monarch butterfly; something which will stay with me for the rest of my days. The sight of millions of these gaudily coloured insects heaped onto trees, whose branches were literally bowing down under the weight, is something that I will never forget. I love butterflies, and always have, but the sight of so many millions of them was highly disturbing.

One night, towards the end of my stay, one of my cousins took me to the cinema. There, we found ourselves attending the Canadian premiere of a movie called The Kids are Alright, a film which told the story of The Who; unarguably one of the greatest British rock bands of all time. Being in a huge movie theatre, many times larger than the Odeon in Bideford (which was the only cinema with which I was actually familiar) alongside several hundred boisterous, stoned and noisy young people, was an experience in itself. But when you add to that the glorious music and insane antics which were happening on the screen and being played through the cinema’s PA system at ear splitting volume, and it was truly like being at one of the best live gigs I had ever seen.

Since then, The Kids are Alright has always been my favourite music documentary (or should that be rockumentary) and even now I watch it at least once every year. The mixture of anarchy and finely-honed precision musicianship is an irresistible one. And there are almost as many smart arsed one liners in The Kids are Alright as there are in Spinal Tap.

So, it was with great interest (and not a little excitement) that I started work on a new edition of a book that was originally called Twilight of the Gods by legendary British film maker Tony Klinger. At a frighteningly young age, he had directed the Linda Thorson-era Avengers. He went on to make some classic adventure movies starring the likes of Roger Moore and Michael Caine, and in the late 1970s he found himself directing the movie which would – for many people – be the ultimate document of the career of a British rock and roll mega-group. But, over the years, he has been written out of the rock and roll history books. The film, these days, has been remembered as being the work of an American Who fan, called Jeff Stein, and this fascinating (and sometimes upsetting) book explains all the political ramifications behind the scenes which were painful to Klinger, but absolutely devastating to some of his colleagues.

In 1975 Stein approached Pete Townshend, the principle composer and guitarist of the band, about compiling a collection of film clips to provide a historical reference for the bands fans. Townshend initially rejected the idea, but was persuaded by the group’s management that this was a good idea. The tipping point was probably the fact that, at the time, Townshend was increasingly disillusioned with touring, and was impressed by Stein’s suggestion that the film could “do the touring” for the band. However, Stein had virtually no experience as a film-maker, and so The Who’s management approached Tony Klinger.

I have been a fan of The Who since my school days, and Pete Townshend has been one of my favourite songwriters, ever since I began to grasp the arcane reality of how rock and roll song writing works. But he doesn’t come over very well in this book; appearing as he does as a petulant and angry prima donna. John Entwistle comes over even worse. We had always known that Entwistle had presented a brutal and implacable façade to the world. But here, he comes over as an unpleasant, racist thug. 

Roger comes over as a consummate professional, but one who has developed such a thick shell over the years that one cannot actually break this façade to find out what the real Mr Daltrey is like. The only member of the band who actually came over sympathetically was poor, sweet, doomed Keith Moon. Klinger himself admits that Keith was the only member of the band with whom he had a pleasant relationship, but despite his Olympic levels of self-destructiveness, the portrait of Moon, which can be found in this book, comes over as a loveable (if terminally flawed) character.

As it is Christmas, and the editorial team behind this magazine believe that nothing illustrates the festive season more than a terminally drunk superstar drummer driving a Rolls Royce into a swimming pool, we decided that this was the perfect time to telephone Tony and get an exclusive interview about his time with The Who, and this book in particular.

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.
