Henry Cow

https://youtu.be/lmji113JJD4

Ah yes brings back memories of : August 1973 London, Roundhouse (Greasy Truckers Benefit) [also: Kevin Ayers & 747, Global Village Trucking Company, Glencoe, Keith Christmas]

Well, not actual memories just a bit like being in another universe.
Ah, but I was so much older then ... I'm younger than that now

Is this like the game where you have a blindfold and things are put in your mouth without you knowing if they are disgusting or not?

Presumably you are also a fan of Soft Machine?

Indeed, or rather was at the time. In fact any prog rock then, now I have wider tastes but am not "fanatical" about anyone.

Some of Soft Machine are still going - this sounds great but I can't make it to London that weekend:

I tend to think of Soft Machine, and Henry Cow, as avante garde jazz, rather than prog rock, since the former play music which experiments with different modes, and unusual arrangements which can involve the drummer playing a different time signature to the bassist. Prog rock to my mind is more about muscianship, and melody/harmony.

A simple tune, but a two octave range! RIP Glen.

I used to like this song. Now I think "Fuck off back to 1970"

The arrangement which told me that I am a Baritone, rather than a Tenor.
