2021 Charity Shop Purchases 23 - Soft Machine - Third
2021 Charity Shop Purchases 24 - Soft Machine - Fourth/Fifth
Right let's get this out of the way.
I could make the excuse that I was confusing them with The Soft Boys of whom Robyn Hitchcock was once a member.
I could also say that I was vaguely aware that both Kevin Ayers and Robert Wyatt had once been members.
Also I could say that they were 50p each and I thought that maybe I should give them a listen to see if they were any good.
However there is still no excuse to subjecting my ears to this absolute drivel.
A combination of jazz and prog - the worse of two possible worlds.
From 1971,1972 and 1973 and all on the Columbia label. Thank God Glam Rock, Bowie and Bolan were just round the corner.
I'm sure that there are some of you out there who like this sort of thing. If so you are welcome to them .
Otherwise it's back to charity they go.
Today's song Kings and Queens is from Fourth and is chosed purely on the basis that it is one of the shortest numbers.
