THE HAPPENING COMBO  

Previously unreleased out-takes and re-workings of songs recorded between 1980 and 1997 by cult ‘Canterbury Scenists’ KEVIN AYERS and LADY JUNE along with their sparring partner, guitarist OLLIE HALSALL measure their mutualism, originality and independence of spirit to the full.

Recorded in Deia, Majorca (and various places in between),  they come back together here, posthumously as THE HAPPENING COMBO, the name given to a 1980 photo of Ollie, Kevin and Marvin Siau (the curator of this release) taken outside Kevin’s house in the hills of Majorca, one hot summer’s day.

This quality digipak release comes with an 8-page booklet containing notes by Marvin Siau and Kevin Ayers’ biographer Martin Wakeling together with previously-unpublished period images …

Totally unique 'Canterbury' artist

Released in 1995 this is a collection of studio recordings that covers the late artist and performance poet Lady June's eclectic range. The excellent music and soundscapes form a perfect setting for June's sharp, humourous observations on some of life's stranger foibles and moving torch songs. A totally unique and throughly enjoyable CD that defies all categories. The ideal follow-up to 'Lingustic Leprosy'... even if it was 22 years later.
