Errata/clarifications: Tim mentioned a track on Gilli Smyth's Fairy Tales album featuring parts of the Book of Taliesin, but he was mistaken — the track is on her Mother album (1978). Also, I'm starting to wonder if Robert Wyatt was still at Simon Langton Grammar School in June 1963 (he, and possibly Hopper, may have left at age 16...does anyone know?). I wrongly stated that Pip Pyle was from Maidstone (he was born in Hertfordshire), but I'm quite sure that he lived there with Pam Howard, the mother of Robert Wyatt's son...again, does anyone know? I said that Daevid and Gilli met in Paris in "1967 or '68", whereas they in fact met in 1964.
