Chris Cutler from Henry Cow

Chris Cutler from Henry Cow chats to Stuart about reforming in memory of Lindsay Cooper. Active from 1968 to 1978 Henry Cow combined the sensibilities of rock with contemporary classical music and jazz. They coined the term Rock In Opposition to advocate their political ideas and the progressive aspects of their music. Lindsay joined Henry Cow as a saxophonist and bassoonist but soon began to contribute her own compositions and wrote half of the songs on their last album Western Culture. Chris pays tribute to Lindsay, describes his arguments with composer Cornelius Cardew and outlines his growing disappointment with the worldwide web.
