SHORT WAVE are HUGH HOPPER (SOFT MACHINE), PIP PYLE (CARAVAN), PHIL MILLER (MATCHING MOLE and HATFIELD AND THE NORTH), DIDIER MALHERBE (GONG).
This recording is the only album by SHORT WAVE a band related to the CANTERBURY SCENE. They formed in 1991, spinning off from the band IN CAHOOTS.
The album that was originally released in 1993 contained material from concerts in England in 1991 and France in 1992.
Despite the optimism voiced by PIP PYLE in the liner note, all members of the band were busy in other projects and so never came back together again.
