University of Errors – 2004 - Jet Propelled Photographs

Demos clásicas de Soft Machine totalmente re-inventadas

¿Un álbum de Daevid Allen en el siglo XXI? Pues sí, y sin perder un ápice de la frescura de hace casi cincuenta años, reinventándose a sí mismo y reinterpretando el repertorio de demos de Soft Machine. Sus diversos proyectos actuales incluyen una “Universidad  de los Errores” donde Daevid “Gong” Allen (también conocido como Professor Dingobert Virginicus) junto a Josh Pollock (de sobrenombre Dr. Joshua Pollock y Josh Pollack, guitarrista que sobresale por derecho propio) Michael Clare (conocido como Prof. Michael Clare) y Warren Huegel, fierecillas de edades nada provectas, sientan cátedra en el arte de “Errorizar”. Y para incrédulos y/o excépticos, incluyo unos temas de audio y un concierto en DVD donde los University Of Errors presentan el repertorio de este Jet Propelled Photographs en The Melkweg, Amsterdam, el 5 de Noviembre de 2006 con Daevid en performance. Buen provecho!!!!!

Classic Soft Machine demos totally re-invented.

The Soft Machine demos have a complete make over and the result is a total breath of fresh air. Somehow the songs haven't lost any of their mid sixties magic and yet at the same time they have been brought bang up to date and magnificently 'Errorized'. Quite a feat. I can imagine that fans of both the Softs and UofE will be more than satisfied - not to mention that there are distinctly Gongish vibrations croping up from time to time.
When I first heard the news, I admit I wasn't too sure about Daevid's decision to just handle the vocals and leave all guitar parts to Josh, even if Mr Pollock is the most wonderful guitarist. However that fortuitous or inspired decision has worked perfectly - Josh is simply fabulous. Daevid, freed from any six-string duties, then turns in one of his best vocal performances in recent times. Perhaps it's a 66 year old singing the words of friends barely into their twenties when written but Daevid's vocals are a combination of being genuinely poignant and full of twinkling knowingness. I think all the old Softies will very pleased with this album.
Let's hope that the ethically, if not 'legally' immoral practises that have witnessed the original Soft Machine demo tracks licensed to oblivion to all'n'sundry can somehow be circumnavigated so the writers of the songs finally get paid something from the proceeds of this release. Yo! - an album energetically reclaimed and most worthy of support - sounds damn great as well.

Daevid Allen's University Of Errors
established 1998, San Francisco, Ca.
Professor Daevid Allen, Headmaster

University of Errors began out of an impromptu jam session at Komotion Studio in San Francisco at the end of September of 1998. Daevid Allen, the founder of The Soft Machine in 1966 and Gong in 1969 was at the end of a solo tour and staying in SF for a feW days before flying home to Austraila. A jam was arranged with some friends and recorded. Listening back at the end of the night Daevid looked up and said: "Can I come back tomorrow and put some lyrics over some of this?". He did and then flew out that night and forgot about it. Michael and Pat and Jay took the tapes and spent some time mixing and sent the results to Daevid a few months later.
Michael received an e-mail from Daevid: "This is a band, we have to do this live. We will be University of Errors." or something like that happened.
The bands first album "Money Doesn't Make it' was those original recordings made out of the jam at Komotion and was released in June of 1999 by Innerspace Records.   (. . .)

Daevid Allen's University of Errors

Plays The Soft Machine DVD

Live At the Gong Family Unconventional Gathering, The Melkweg, Amsterdam, 5 November 2006"
 
This DVD, recorded live at the Gong UNCON in November 2006, features a number of songs performed by the University Of Errors that covers that Soft Machine era.
This album will be of interest to the large and dedicated Daevid Allen and Gong audience and also through historic connection to the fans of Soft Machine and the Canterbury Scene as a whole.
The Amsterdam performance was the first time that U of E performed most of this material live since recording the songs for their CD "Jet Propelled Photographs" in 2003. It was a very fitting situation as the entire weekend was a celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Daevid's  original vision of The Planet Gong in 1966 while he was still a member of The Soft Machine.
University of Errors played on the last night of the 3-Day Amsterdam UnConvention. Expectations were high and the band rocked and roared through the set.
The performance was professionally filmed using five HD cameras and 48 track audio. Audio mixing and editing and the classy Cubist Video Edit was done by Harry Williamson at his Melbourne Studio with Daevid and Michael Claire contributing artistic and cultural detail. All the wild effects were carefully planned and executed with meticulous precision. The result is not just another concert video.
It is a WORK OF ART in its own right.
Tracks: That's How Much I Need You Now - Robert Wyatt, Save Yourself - Robert Wyatt, Hope For Happiness - Brian Hopper, She's Gone - Kevin Ayers, When I Don't Want You - Hugh Hopper, You Don't Remember - Robert Wyatt/Daevid Allen, I Should Have Known - Hugh Hopper, Shooting At The Moon - Kevin Ayers, Stoned Innocent Frankenstein - Daevid Allen, Fohat Digs Holes in Space - Daevid Allen/Gilli Smyth, Love Makes Sweet Music - Kevin Ayers.

This DVD, recorded live at the Amsterdam UnConvention in November 2006, was the first time that U of E performed this material since recording the songs back in 2003. The performance was professionally filmed using five HD cameras and 48 track audio. The result is not just another concert video; it is a work of art in its own right. This concert features songs such as, "That's How Much I Need You Now," "Save Yourself," "Hope For Happiness," and many more.
Daevid Allen, founding member of the prog-rock outfit Soft Machine, plays that band's catalogue in this 2006 performance, filmed at the Unconvention festival in Amsterdam. Accompanied by his new band, University of Errors, Allen offers updated interpretations of Soft Machine songs "That's How Much I Need You Now," "Save Yourself," and more.
