[voiceover ambience: Daevid Allen and Mark Hewins — improvised guitar duet (part of a live Gong set, Mexico City, 1999-06-07)]

Errata and clarifications: Zoot Money was definitely part of Dantalian's Chariot (in fact it was his band, renamed from the earlier Big Roll Band). Udine is in northeastern Italy and you pronounce it "oodeenay" (audio here!) — the Henry Cow piece was recorded at its Palamostre Auditorium on 1975-10-13. "Rabbit"'s given name was "John Bundrick". The most likely drummer in Kevin Ayers band for that Hyde Park gig is Eddie Sparrow. The Boot Lagoon track was originally called "Woodland" (the title I give in the programme), but the band decided to rename it to the anagram "An Odd Owl". The EP comes out on Febuary 23rd and can be pre-ordered here.

look out for Robert Wyatt in his "yellow suit that's made by Pam"!
