    If you bought it via Bandcamp, you can listen to it now.

    I'm listening to the Amsterdam concert now. Sound quality is good. The performance seems a bit rushed compared to Paris, but still good.

    Thanks. I would have bought it from Bandcamp but postage was £16 on a £19 package (as it would have been posted from the US). I am looking forward to this very much, both for the cleared up video and audio of the Paris concert on CD and, especially, for the Amsterdam concert.

    According to Laser's Edge, this album is very Canterbury-styled. Haven't listened yet:

    There's a brand new robot version of Wyatt's "O Caroline" available for casual mass consumption here:

    ^ Pretty damn gross, yes.

    I'm usually a total fan of Jap eccentrica (of which there is admittedly an enormous abundance), but this isn't really even that - it's simply cheap plastic replica of a classic track, bended for equally simplistic entertainment value.

    Agreed, with all of it.

    Thanks, sounds great. Syn-Phonic seems to have all four of their albums and cheaper. If you buy all four might as well get it from their bandcamp website.

    I have been listening lots of Manna/Mirage (The Muffins spin-off) lately. Nice blend of Canterbury style and avantprog. There is even song named "Canterbury Bells" on album Blue Dogs (2015).

    Last year's Man Out Of Time is really fantastic.

    ^^ I believed you! But I looked anyway. We had two others in common as well (Ske and Aquaserge).

    Cool albums!

    Btw. My number 11 is another brilliant canterburian album Walking Up That Valley by Needlepoint. Did you like that one?

    I did, but not as much as other people did. There are always a handful of albums each year where that's the case, of course.

    I LOVE all of Dave's music - I also get to work with Dave on all his releases - art and graphics work - super nice fella and a good friend. Check out his work on MOON X - great stuff too. Jerry King plays some ace bass and guitar - very Crimson-ish music. https://davenewhouse.bandcamp.com/album/zap
