Hugh Hopper Interview


HUGH HOPPER INTERVIEW from Mark Hewins on Vimeo.


Found this Hugh Hopper interview on Mark Hewins´ Vimeo. It does not say when it was done.

"I asked Hugh about his methodology, concepts and process in regards to tape looping in the early 1960's.

MUSIC SOUNDTRACK:
We especially prepared the Music on magnetic tape for this film, which Hugh starts at the beginning; it plays constantly underneath the dialogue.
(Mark Hewins, Processed Synth Guitar - Hugh Hopper, Bass/Fuzz Bass)".

London Bossa


london-bossa-20 from dottv productions on Vimeo.


I recently got a message (thanks Jan) telling me that the "London Bossa" DVD (2014) with Monica Vasconcelos & London Bossa Collective includes a documentary where Robert Wyatt and Monica Vasconcelos "are chatting and sitting at the piano together".

Paul Weller: A Kind Revolution



Paul Weller´s new album "A Kind Revolution" (Parlaphone 2017) is out today.

Four physical versions available: Vinyl, CD, DeLuxe 3CD Set and Deluxe 10” Vinyl Box Set.

Robert Wyatt is on the track "She Moves with the Fayre". So far I have been enjoying it on Spotify.
