Graham Bond: Wading in Murky Waters

Read "Graham Bond: Wading in Murky Waters" reviewed by Duncan Heining

Organist and saxophonist Graham Bond was the most important and influential musical pioneer to emerge from British jazz in the 1960s. High praise indeed, but in his case it is warranted. His legacy might be defined less by the music he recorded and more by the impact he had on subsequent generations of musicians. However, that ...

Matching Mole: On the Radio

Read "On the Radio" reviewed by John Kelman

Matching Mole may have lasted just under a year when it surfaced 35 years ago, but public interest in drummer/vocalist Robert Wyatt's first post-Soft Machine project continues to be strong. On the Radio isn't the first archival live release, and nearly three-quarters of the material was previously available, but only for a short time. This remastered ...

Matching Mole: March

Read "March" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Drummer/vocalist Robert Wyatt formed this band, soon after his departure from the now legendary Soft Machine aggregation. With only two albums under its belt, Matching Mole disbanded in 1972, whereas Cuneiform Records has furthered its legacy due to the 2001 release titled Smoke Signals. This outing follows suit so to speak, as the label resurrects additional ...

Matching Mole: Smoke Signals

Read "Smoke Signals" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Ardent fans of the oft fabled British Canterbury school of progressive music should welcome this new release by a band whose sole recorded output resulted in two acclaimed 1972 recordings. Thus, the name “Matching Mole” was derived from the French translation of the great British band, “Soft Machine” (machine molle), although in 1971 drummer Robert Wyatt ...
