Take almost any iconic British musician of the late ’60s or early ’70s, and a failed group lurks in their past. Bryan Ferry had the Gas Board, for example, and David Gilmour his Jokers Wild; even David Bowie tried his hand in The Lower Third, The Konrads and The King Bees.
But one such group, The Wilde Flowers, who floundered quietly in Canterbury in the mid-’60s, not only spawned a whole batch of England’s finest songwriters and musicians, but an entire genre – the Canterbury Scene, made up of jazz-tinged, psychedelically playful outfits such as Soft Machine, Caravan, Matching Mole and Hatfield And The North, and solo artists like Robert Wyatt and Kevin Ayers.
