Canterbury Sans Frontières: Episode 39
Some excerpts from Robert Wyatt's discussion with the University of Kent at Canterbury's vice chancellor back in April, interspersed with relevant sounds from Daevid Allen, Annie Whitehead's "Soupsongs" band and Gorky's Zygotic Mynci. Also, Daevid getting all bleak and technoid on his last US tour before disappearing back to Oz for the 80s, the Softs' oblique tribute to an Irish TV presenter, Kevin Ayers from a '76 Peel session, Nucleus live on the BBC in '74 and Hatfield live in '75. Some William Burroughs cutups, more Aksak Maboul, more neo-Cantuarianism from Amoeba Split, Third Ear Band on French TV and ancient electronica from Suzanne Ciani and Soul Oddity. From the Canterbury of now, a new album side from Lapis Lazuli and Syd Arthur jamming freely for the 2009 Winter Solstice.
