Back in 2010 Jack Hues and The Quartet and Canterbury Rock band Syd Arthur joined forces to present an evening of music at Canterbury’s legendary Orange Street Music Club. They played “Facelift” and a medley of Soft Machine pieces arranged by Syd’s Raven Bush plus an arrangement of the 3rd movement of Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto featuring Raven on electric violin. The evening culminated in a performance of “Nobody’s Fault But My Own” by Beck (from his album “Mutations”) with both bands on stage – 2 drummers, 2 bass players, violin, guitars, keyboards – an awe inspiring noise! In October 2012 we gathered together in a barn just outside Canterbury and recorded the song, joined by Chris Hughes on percussion and a bit of gentle producing… and Paul Booth on tenor saxophone.
