Canterbury Scene

I have an extensive archive of music from the Canterbury Scene. I don’t share their produced albums unless they are no longer providing royalties to the musicians. However, given that there is a very strong fan base, akin to a family, I do share non-album recordings.

Help yourselves ….

Robert Wyatt
In late November- early December 1994, Robert Wyatt was in Milan for the book launch of ‘Falsi movimenti’, the Italian edition of ‘Wrong Movements: A Robert Wyatt History’ by Mike King.Radio Popolare asked him to do an interview and a short series of radio programmes. They are a fascinating insight into what he and Alfreda listen to at home.
