Canterbury Sans Frontierès: Episode 22

Canterbury Sans Frontières: Episode 22

This episode we dig deeper into the recently released Hugh Hopper archives, as well as his brother Brian's "Canterburied Sounds" collection of home tape recordings, including a phenomenal 1972 Caravan instrumental demo. Also, the newly surfaced, earliest existing recordings of Gong from 1968 and something very punchy from their 2014's "I See You" album, an insane piece of prepared piano from Lindsay Cooper's private tape archive, Robert Wyatt singing a poignant John Lennon song as well as singing backing vocals for his biographer's band, Richard Sinclair singing lyrics written by novelist/fan Jonathan Coe, some "Bitches Brew"-inspired Donald Byrd from 1970, a gem from the 80's King Crimson lineup, a Japanese acid-folk masterpiece from 1975, Japanese Canterbury-heads Happy Family from last year, and some loveliness from early 80s feminist collective "Jam Today". From the Canterbury of today, there's a live set from Lapis Lazuli, recorded here last December.
