Soft Machine

Active since:

Soft Machine was formed in 1966 by Robert Wyatt, Mike Ratledge, Kevin Ayers and Daevid Allen. Wyatt had already worked with Allen in the Daevid Allen Trio (which Ratledge occasionally jammed with) in 1963, and with Ayers in the Wilde Flowers in 1964. Although the band had its roots in Canterbury, it soon became a London- based band. In January 1967, the band's one and only single ever was recorded : it had two songs on it, "Loves Make Sweet Music" and "Feelin', Reelin', Squeelin'". Three months later, a collections of demos was recorded at DeLane Lea Studios with producer Giorgio Gomelsky, but not officially released until 1971 (on two compilations on the French Byg label)

Soft Machine: Facelift France and Holland

Read "Facelift France and Holland" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini


Sotto l'ombrello robusto chiamato Soft Machine si nascondono in realtà parecchie band. All'inizio l'interesse del gruppo, nato nel 1966 in quel di Canterbury (anche se loro non vogliono essere considerati come esponenti del cosiddetto Canterbury Sound), era per una sorta di pop-rock patafisico, che poi ha iniziato a dilatarsi verso la psichedelia, il rock progressivo, il ...

Roberto Zorzi: esplorazione senza confini

Read "Roberto Zorzi: esplorazione senza confini" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Il percorso musicale del chitarrista Roberto Zorzi è così ricco ed eclettico che è impossibile includerlo in un particolare genere musicale. L'iniziale amore per visionari artisti rock come Robert Fripp e Brian Eno s'è arricchito nel tempo di approcci, tanto liberi quanto anticonvenzionali, di Derek Bailey e altri esponenti dell'avanguardia inglese degli anni settanta. La ricerca ...
