Clear Frame - Zurich 2007 (r.i.p. Hugh Hopper)

Next one for Hugh Hopper...

Funny enough I just found Soft Machine's "Fifth" (and Robert Wyatt's "Comicopera") in the summer sales that are just about to begin.

The previous posts:
Soft Machine - Donaueschingen 1971
Soft Machine - Berlin 1971
Soft Machine Legacy - Lugano 2005

I am ashamed and sorry that I was noth among the 40 or so people who attended this concert - I remember considering if I should make it, but eventually it was one of those days where I was just too exhausted...

Here's an interview with Hugh, published in early 2008, by Bebbe Colli:
