Errata/clarifications: The man behind Ekoda Map's full name is Tom Bardwell. I should have mentioned that the System 7 piece "Coltrane" was a Miquette Giraudy composition. I should also have mentioned Richard Fariña's 1966 novel Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up to Me which was a major influence on Thomas Pynchon. And Pynchon was best man at Fariña's wedding, not vice versa. I should also perhaps have mentioned that Fred Frith played violin on "Hai Sai Oji-San".

Soft Machine live on Tous En Scene, 1969

I've added an RSS feed to the top of the right-hand sidebar. See if that works. Alternatively, just keep an eye on the phase of the moon!
