CANTERBURY SANS FRONTIÈRES: Episode Forty-one We at Gonzo Web Radio are very proud to bring you Canterbury Sans Frontières - a podcast dedicated to the music of the 'Canterbury Scene' and more. Creator Matthew Watkins writes: As with Canterbury Soundwaves , a new three-hour episode will be released with each full moon. I decided to wind down Canterbury Soundwaves so that I didn't end up (i) repeating myself, (ii) scraping the bottom of the Canterbury barrel, or (iii) becoming increasingly tangential. This new podcast broadens the musical remit, so it'll be about one-third 'Canterbury sound', together with progressive/psychedelic/experimental music from the Canterbury of today, the remainder being a mix of music from various times and places which I feel to be in a similar spirit of creative adventurousness. I'll be doing a lot less talking, and the programme will be less expository – so no interviews, barely listenable bootlegs, etc. I also plan to include guest one-hour mixes from various musicians from the current music scene in Canterbury (Episode 2 features a mix from Neil Sullivan from Lapis Lazuli). And for those of you who wonder what Matthew was referring to when he writes about Canterbury Soundwaves we have brought you all the back catalogue of that as well. Those wacky guys at Gonzo, eh? More from Gilli Smyth's "Gong Matrices" project, a couple of overlooked Wyatt pieces, a wind quartet from Egg, some live Soft Machine from the brief Phil Howard era, a '68 Caravan radio session, a rather good song from one of Kevin Ayers lesser albums and a slab of Matching Mole's debut album. From the Canterbury of now, another side from the new Lapis Lazuli double album and a cosmic instrumental from Syd Arthur's recently released third album. This episode also features a one-hour mix involving Japanese keyboard player Yumi Hara collaborating with Hugh Hopper, Daevid Allen, members of Henry Cow and Faust, as well as leading the new project "Half The Sky" which exists solely to play the music of bassoonist/composer Lindsay Cooper (1951-2013), and covering the Matching Mole classic "O Caroline".
