Another great guitarist leaves this world.
Phil was founder member of Delivery, joined Robert Wyatt to form Matching Mole (the follow on band to Soft Machine), Hatfield & The North and National Health before forming his own band 'In Cahoots' and myriad other progressive Jazz outfits along the way.
"Phil Miller would rather play a wrong note than a note that somebody else had ever played" - Robert Wyatt.
"Journalists have always tended to describe Phil's playing in terms of
restraint, lack of ego, tastefulness, etc. This hardly does it justice.
His ambition is actually to hypnotise the audience into a state of utter
submission by means of a system of complex, secretive and often
terrifying facial grimaces that he has perfected". - Dave Stewart
A hero of mine, and many others. A fundamental entity of the Canterbury Scene.
