Doctor Dream Is No More

Another influencer on my early adulthood is no more: Kevin Ayers has died. Damn. Time to listen again to some of his work: Joy of a Toy, Bananamour, and of course: The Confessions of Doctor Dream. RIP Mr. Ayers.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    Yup – real shame. And a highly influential musician to boot.

    Dunno if you frequent it, but Stuart Maconie’s Freak Show features SM’s ‘Probe’. It’s only available for a couple more days though: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01qrkp5

    Stuart Maconie’s Freakier Zone is doing an hour of Canterbury Scene: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00rwkjd (12 hours left at the time of writing – get it while it’s hot)
