Canterbury Sans Frontierès: Episode 21
Canterbury Sans Frontières returns after a hiatus of several months. The middle hour of this episode is of course dedicated to the late, great Daevid Allen, godfather (and Pied Piper) of the Canterbury Scene, who passed away in March, with a guest mix provided by Canterbury sound artist and DJ Adam Dawson (a.k.a. Adam Oko). Also Robert Wyatt singing an e e cummings poem set to music by John Cage, some newly released archival Hugh Hopper live recordings, a couple of pieces from the Lindsay Cooper memorial concert last year involving Henry Cow and friends, the jazz piece from which Caravan borrowed one of their most famous motifs, Kevin Ayers with the Wizards of Twiddly live in 1995, a far-out Syd Arthur remix, a solo piano version of Terry Riley's "Rainbow in Curved Air", and much more.
