Voiceprint records :


Canterbury Drumming Legend Passes Away

It is with great sadness that Voiceprint announces the death of Pip Pyle. Apparently Pip died in Paris following a concert. Pip who was a magnificent drummer was known in Canterbury circles for playing on albums that have become key moments in the “Canterbury Sound”. Pip featured on the albums Hatfield and the North and Rotters Club for Hatfield and the North and more famously Pip was the drummer on the landmark Gong album Camembert Electrique although many other bands and artists such as national Health, Delivery, Brainville (and many other projects alongside Daevid Allen) and his own band Pip Pyle’s Equipe Out were also to benefit from his much admired drumming skills. More recently Pip re issued two albums fro Equipe Out and his own solo album Seven Year Itch.

Voiceprint sends its sympathy and condolences to Pip’s family and friends at this difficult time.

Gong leader Daevid Allen had this to say when hearing the sad news:

"Ahhh Pip! Yes our old mate apparently came back to Paris from a top gig & died in his girlfriend's arms. A heroic way to go but please.... better not to go just yet! He was a totally original drum warrior & golden jester, very much loved by all of us. His contribution to the Gong band & so many of my projects was without parallel. I loved him like the true brother he was. His unfinished music & inspiring physical courage, honesty & outrageous escapades will be HUGELY missed. I'm still laughing at those mad moments through the tears.
Feeling deeply particularly for old pal Pam & son Sam & for all his familiars & allies.
We all send him huge THANKS!!!"

Love from Daevid

Tiles working on 5th album

From Tiles website the following can be found - Tiles are woring on a new album


August 24, 2006

Our staff translator Mr. Al Grabenstein has kindly submitted a batch of German and Dutch reviews for "Window Dressing." Click here for 7 new/old reviews - most of them reasonably favorable - and all of them now in English. Although we're still proud of the artistic acheivement that is "Window Dressing," our bank account is a reminder of its correspondingly modest commercial success! In this age of shortened attention spans, we still contend there was an unfavorable rush to judgment - with many people rendering opinions after only a cursory listen. Of course much music suffers the same fate these days... with people's opinions traveling farther and quicker on the internet. As Mr. Hardy astutely observed in his review for Metal-Inside, "Window Dressing" grows on you each time you listen to it" - which is kind of a hallmark of progressive rock anyway. Wynton Marsalis teaches how to enjoy long pieces of music in his "Marsalis on Music" series stating: "...spend time learning structure and form, and music unfolds like a story." Where is this editorial leading? Answer: to the merchandise page to buy copies of "Window Dressing" - sorry..., art and commerce must collide ;-)

In other news... it's off to Toronto to continue work on our 5th - and less challenging (ha ha) - CD this weekend... Paul and Chris will work on a variety of vocals and guitars. Arranging and pre-production on song eight, "Dragons, Dreams, and Daring Deeds," has been going well. D4, as we call it, may be the final tune for Tiles "5 - untitled" since we're approaching the 50-minute mark (not including a very nice piano Etude by Jeff). We'll have to see how things go... maybe we'll do an extra song for back-up.
