Misc, Other Play Sax With Lol Coxhill

My mistake, as his mouth was moving I thought I was supposed to be able to make out the words.
I'm definitely getting old, in my day they had real songs with nice words and tunes you could sing along to.
 
Sorry guys, after I posted that the dreaded thought that it may be a member playing on it crossed my mind apologies if it was as I would never ever chritisize another member, just not my bag sorry.
 
Don't worry. He's dead.

I've always had a bit of a soft spot for him. Saw him play quite a number of times from '73 (I think) to the last time about 20 years ago. Great character and player.
 
I remember one of my friends coming home from a Damned gig and telling me about a weird old man on stage telling jokes and playing the saxophone, apparently Lol Coxhill used to play support to a few punk bands back in the day, so he must've heard worse insults than the one's in asterisks above...
There was a certain amount of crossover between avant garde jazz and new wave music - The Pop Group, The Flying Lizards, Blurt and a few other bands took inspiration from the anarchy of free improv and Ian Dury nicked the tune for 'Sex And Drugs And Rock'n'Roll' from the bass solo on Ornette Coleman's 'Ramblin'
New York 'No Wave; bands like DNA, Red Transistor, James Chance & The Contortions, Friction, The Lounge Lizards and Sonic Youth have all claimed some free jazz influence. And Lou Reed was a big fan of Ornette Coleman.
Nowadays there's a whole younger generation of musicians growing up without the prejudices of their forebears and they listen to whatever takes their fancy

Great post, agree with all you have stated. In addition the opportunity for today's youth to be able to move across and listen/appreciate all genres is tremendous. It has helped me to widen my musical horizons.
