EPISODE DESCRIPTION

As this will be the final episode of Canterbury Soundwaves, it's a very special extended edition featuring a day out in the Canterbury area with the man who started it all...Daevid Allen! As well as visiting Robert Wyatt's family home in the village of Lydden where he lived in 1961 (his first time back in 50 years) and a couple of other places of local significance to his early days of music-making, Daevid reads poetry in the Canterbury Cathedral crypt and atop the mysterious Dane John Mound near the city wall. His reminiscences and musings are interwoven with music from several Gong lineups (including the current one with his and Gilli's son Orlando), the Daevid Allen Trio, Wilde Flowers, early Soft Machine and Caravan, The Magick Brothers, University of Errors, Brainville, Acid Mothers Gong, Kevin Ayers, Steve Hillage and Khan, as well as current Canterbury-based artists Arlet and Luke Smith.

As both Daevid and I have a tendency to mumble, and quite a lot of this was recorded in crowded streets, noisy pubs, etc., I'd recommend taking some time to listen to this one undistracted, with headphones or decent speakers.
