Soft Machine have announced a 10-date UK tour which will take place next month.

The run of shows will get under way in Wavendon on November 2 and wrap up at New Brighton on the 26th of the month.

Theo Travis reports: “I am excited to report that Soft Machine will be touring the UK from next week.

“The band features John Etheridge on guitar, Roy Babbington on bass and John Marshall on drums and yours truly on sax, flute and keyboards. So… three quarters of the celebrated 70s version of the group which recorded the acclaimed Softs album in 1975.

“We will be playing material from the era – compositions by Hugh Hopper, Mike Ratledge and Karl Jenkins – as well as other pieces composed by John Etheridge or me plus some band improvisations.”
