[voiceover ambience: Steve Hillage — "Castle in the Clouds" (from Live Herald, 1979)]

Errata/clarifications: I claimed that Robert Wyatt drummed on a couple of Keith Tippett Group albums, but in fact he was only on one. I claimed Hugh Hopper replaced Jeff Clyne in Isotope, Nucleus and Gilgamesh, whereas Hopper was never in Nucleus. I also failed to mention that Bill Bruford drummed in National Health on and off in '75-'76 (nothing of this was recorded apart from a BBC radio session and some concert bootlegs, though). He was also part of Richard Sinclair's (unrecorded) project "Sinclair and the South" Other Crimson-Canterbury connections I overlooked were the fact that Mel Collins was in Camel at the same time as the Sinclairs, and that Jimmy Hastings, Geoff Richardson and Dave McRae all played on Michael Giles solo recordings.

And then there's this, from the Caravan Times website [thanks to Tim M for pointing this one out!]:

David Sinclair revealed he felt 'like a tennis ball in a tumble dryer' when the storm hit his caravan, picking it up and flipping it through the air numerous times...

'I was just sitting in my caravan when I heard a sudden downpour of rain...Then all of a sudden the wind started whipping around the caravan and all off a sudden the caravan lifted into the air.'

Despite the caravan's violent acrobatics, Mr Sinclair escaped with just bruising and a cut to the head, though his injuries could have been much worse.

He was taken to [a nearby hospital]...for a precaution because a fridge landed on him during the ordeal, but his unlucky caravan appears to have borne the brunt of the damage and is now a complete write-off.

Not loving the Gong-Bruford collaboration - you can sense the tension!
