Brainville 3-April 19,2009
Recorded at Auditorium di via Roma, Gorizia (Italy)
FM radio broadcast by "Il Cartellone - Radio 3 Suite Jazz", Radio 3 RAI [third channel of Italian national radio], on thursday 25 June 2009
five unnamed tracks
It was broadcast by a jazz programme, but it includes everything from psychedelia, progressive rock, avantgarde music, improvisation... as you would expect from founding members of Soft Machine, Gong, Henry Cow, Art Bears... and apparently the name of the group is coming off a Sun Ra tune. It is made of two suites (that I divided in smaller fragments) where new and old themes from Allen and Softs constantly merge in some sort of disturbed space rock with glissando guitar.
Daevid Allen, guitar, vocals, effects;
Hugh Hopper, bass, loops;
Chris Cutler, drums.
