Soft Machine

Soft Machine enjoyed two distinct phases in its relatively long existence. The band first emerged in the late 1960s as the most distinctive and original of the "Canterbury school" of progressive rock and became one of the pioneering British psychedelic groups. The band then morphed into a jazz-rock fusion act that, despite incessant personnel changes, continued to produce albums until the early 1990s. Though commercially unsuccessful and largely unknown, Soft Machine retains cult status as one of the most influential and intellectual underground bands of the late 1960s and is noteworthy for having launched the solo careers of founding members Robert Wyatt and Kevin Ayers.

The Canterbury jazz/prog-rockers are back, featuring three of the group's 70s era members: guitarist John Etheridge, drummer John Marshall and bass player Roy Babbington. They're joined by the much in-demand sax, flute and keyboard player Theo Travis and play from their extensive recorded catalogue.
