Bemerkungen


Die wie Caravan aus der Canterbury-Urzellenband The Wilde Flowers hervorgegangenen Soft Machine (der Bandname ist ein Roman-Titel von Beat-Schriftsteller William Burroughs) galten im Swinging London der späten Sechziger Jahre neben Pink Floyd als eine der grossen Psychedelic Hoffnungen.

Ursprünglich arbeitete die Band als Quartett (Keyboarder Mike Ratledge, Schlagzeuger Robert Wyatt, Bassist Kevin Ayers und Gitarrist Daevid Allen). Nach Auftritten in Frankreich wurde dem Australier Allen aber die Wiedereinreise nach Grossbritannien verweigert, der daraufhin Gong gründete. Die ersten drei Alben wurden also im Trio-Format mit verschiedenen Gastmusikern eingespielt. Allerdings verabschiedete sich zwischenzeitig Kevin Ayers, der durch Hugh Hopper, bis dahin Roadie der Band, ersetzt wurde. Mit dem Einstieg des (Free-)Jazz Saxophonisten Elton Dean entfernten sich Soft Machine immer weiter von ihren psychedelischen Pop-Wurzeln hin zu einem sehr jazz-lastigen Sound, was nach dem vierten Album Robert Wyatt zum Ausstieg und zur Gründung von Matching Mole brachte. Danach begann ein stetes Besetzungskarussell, bei dem vor allem einige ehemalige Mitglieder der britischen Jazzrock-Formation Nucleus auftretende Lücken schlossen, bis schliesslich kein Gründungsmitglied mehr Teil der Band war. Auch musikalisch entwickelten sich die späten Soft Machine in Richtung eines eher konventionellen Jazzrocks.

Robert Wyatt und Hugh Hopper blieben immer solo und in verschiedenen Projekten aktiv. Um Mike Ratledge war es lange Jahre ruhig, bis er mit dem aus seiner Arbeit als Komponist für Werbemusiken hervorgegangenen Adiemus-Projekt zusammen mit dem ebenfalls Ex-Soft Machine Mitglied Karl Jenkins Anfang der Neunziger Jahre einen grossen Hit hatte. Elton Dean gehört heute zu den geschäftigsten Musikern der britischen Freejazz- und Jazzrock-Szene, und immer wieder arbeitet er in diesem Umfeld auch mit verschiedenen anderen Canterbury-Grössen wie Phil Miller.
