Zitat des Tages von Kevin Ayers:
England is so defined, the class system, your education. I think what was unique about the Canterbury scene.
I can't write songs unless I am in love.
If I am not in love, nothing is meaningful to me. I have no energy.
We had literary references, so we knew what we were talking about. We could quote things, talk about books we'd read; you can say something, you don't have to explain it.
I think that the basic philosophy was very good. It was just be nice to each other, and don't step on other people's toes and infringe on their freedom.
That was something. As opposed to nothing.
The music we made then was so amateurish, compared to the rest of mainstream pop or rock and roll. But what differentiated us from what everybody else was doing in the business was the fact that you could tell that these people came from different reference areas.
