In stock


The analysis, history and reception of the Canterbury music scene between the late 1960s and early 1970s. From the band Soft Machine supporting Jimi Hendrix on tour in the US in 1968, to Robert Wyatt's famous Rock Bottom album later, to the bands Caravan and Hatfield and the North: the artists and music of the Canterbury scene in England gave a specific and colourful stamp to rock music in the late 1960s and early 1970s. With their commitment to unpredictable stage behaviour and radical humour, these musicians produced records that were multi-directional experiments, some of which remain important landmarks today. The aim of this issue of Volume! is to explore these repertoires, which have received little attention in international research, by favouring approaches based on analysis, history and reception. Two specialists, the musicologist Vincenzo Caporaletti and the essayist Aymeric Leroy, and several other researchers attempt to untangle some of the 'knots' of this scene and its music.
