Amused by the last track. I don't know if it has something to do with the surname, but I have had a piano in my back garden for the last two and a half years which is now in a state of considerable disrepair - though some of the keys still work and the sustain pedal gives a wonderful crashing sound. Here is a recent recording and picture though it's rather minimal: https://soundcloud.com/missy-linnaeus/garden-view There are other recordings - and even video - but I don't know how to include them here.

I will be interested to hear the development of Sam's project.

ps -Had to edit my remarks. I wish they had a tab for that. And it's rather clumsy how the notification stays there. Oh well, as Burroughs said edit, edit, edit.

Nice, the indomitable Daevid Allen! Reminds me of the You Tube video of talking head Daevid intoning ‘So, Bin Laden’. Chilling! I couldn’t find it last time I looked.
10 years ago I wrote Robert Wyatt and had the gall to suggest that Soft Machine might have influenced Miles Davis and Carla Bley to an extent. I just remembered ‘Bitch’s Brew’ and Soft Machine III coming out around the same time on Columbia with similar formats. And Davis befriending Jimi Hendrix and even exchanging girlfriends. I’m sure Hendrix gave Soft Machine props when he could. And Carla Bley. I heard shades of Soft Machine in the Desert Band on ‘Escalator over the Hill’; Bley, Jack Bruce, John McLaughlin and Paul Motian. Amongst other things.Sweet how Wyatt dedicates a tune on 'End of an Ear' to Bley. When he wrote back he’d have none of it. It was the opposite he said. Davis and Bley influenced Soft Machine he intimated. I hear a Soft Machine overtones on Bley’s album ‘Night Glo’ in the suite ‘Wildlife”.
Looking forward to the next episode. thanks
