  • SOFT MACHiNE :: Love Makes Sweet Music

    2:49

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Love Makes Sweet Music
    Single by Soft Machine
    B-side: Feelin’ Reelin’ Squeelin’
    Released February 17, 1967
    Format: 7 single, 45 rpm
    Recorded January 1967, Advision Studios
    Label: Polydor 56 151 (UK)
    Producers: Chas Chandler (A-side), Kim Fowley (B-side)

    Love Makes Sweet Music was the first single released by the psychedelic rock group Soft Machine. It is one of the first British psychedelic releases, predating Pink Floyd's Arnold Layne by a month. The A-side is more pop-orientated, featuring Robert Wyatt on lead vocals. The other side, ‘Feelin’ Reelin Squeelin’ is a disturbing tour de force with Kevin Ayers handling the lead vocal for the verses, while Robert Wyatt sings the chorus; there is an elliptical series of strange noises and flute in the solo.

    The tracks from the single have been reissued on the Soft Machine compilations Triple Echo and Out-Bloody-Rageous - An Anthology 1967 -1973 (Sony), while both sides of the single also appear on the 1972 Polydor compilation LP Rare Tracks; recently, the 2009 CD edition of the album The Soft Machine has the two songs as bonus tracks.

    The original copy of the single commands very high prices when it turns up for auction.

    Personnel

    Kevin Ayers - Guitar (Love Makes Sweet Music), Bass (Feelin...) and Vocals
    Daevid Allen - Bass (Love Makes Sweet Music), Guitar (Feelin...)

  • Soft Machine - Hidden Details 50th Anniversary Tour - Live in de Boerderij

    52:31

    Soft Machine werd eind jaren ’60 opgericht en wordt gezien als pionier van het jazz fusion genre.
    De band presenteert hun nieuwe album Hidden Details in Cultuurpodium Boerderij.

    Soft Machine is één van de meest invloedrijke bands uit de Canterbury Scene. Gitarist John Etheridge,
    saxofonist Theo Travis (ex-Gong, Steven Wilson, David Gilmour), bassist Roy Babbington en drummer John Marshall
    zorgen ervoor dat het nalatenschap van Soft Machine blijft voortbestaan.
    Met klassiekers van de wereldberoemde albums “Third” (1970) en “Fourth” (1971), werk uit de beginjaren en natuurlijk nieuwe nummers van hun plaat “Hidden Details”
    .



    Soft Machine

    John Etheridge – guitar
    Theo Travis - tenor sax, flute, keyboards
    Roy Babbington - bass
    John Marshall - drums

    Soft Machine is one of the greatest UK avant/jazz-rock bands of all time. Their work, from their earliest performances as a psychedelic band, who were contemporaries of, and shared stages with Syd Barrett's Pink Floyd and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, all the way to being one of Europe's best known 'fusion' bands has influenced several generations of bands, and continues to be name-checked by today's hip experimentalists.

    Hidden Details’, released in 2018, exactly 50 years since the release of the band’s 1968 debut album ‘The Soft Machine’.

    Whilst the line-up of Soft Machine may have changed many times since the heady days of the late 1960’s, the band’s spirit of musical adventure, and the ease with which it freely avoids being pigeon holed and can move from powerful progressive jazz fusion to atmospheric psychedelia to free improvised jazz-rock to ambient loop music continues to make it both unique and totally contemporary.

    Sinds 1999 is Marshall weer betrokken in de revival van de 'Canterbury-scene'.
    Hij draait mee in een aantal projecten rond het oude Soft Machine. Een eerste initiatief was SoftWhere, met onder meer Hugh Hopper, Elton Dean en Keith Tippett. De volgende samenstelling was met Allan Holdsworth, SoftWorks. Na een album werd er uitgebreid opgetreden. Nadat John Etheridge Holdsworth had vervangen, werd de naam gewijzigd in Soft Machine Legacy. Soft Machine Legacy trad regelmatig op, onder andere op 10 mei 2005 in Zaandam; van dit optreden werden opnamen gemaakt die op album uitgebracht werden. Met het overlijden van Elton Dean liep dit project ten einde.

  • John Etheridge on joining Soft Machine thanks to Allan Holdsworth

    7:54

    John Etheridge discusses how a recommendation from fellow guitarist Allan Holdsworth led to his being recruited as the latter's replacement in Soft Machine in 1975 - a position he still proudly holds some 44 years later. He recalls how Karl Jenkins and John Marshall came to check him out at a gig, but - for reasons John explains - weren't terribly impressed with his playing that night...
