Profile
Wilde Flowers can be seen as the band at the core of what became known as the Canterbury Scene. The group was active between 1964 and 1969 but never released any records during its existence; however former members went on to form two other groups that became central to the Canterbury scene: Soft Machine and Caravan. These bands in turn spawned a vast number of Canterbury-related or Canterbury-sounding bands. During its existence, the band at various times counted as members Brian Hopper, Hugh Hopper, Robert Wyatt, Kevin Ayers, Richard Sinclair, Pye Hastings, Richard Coughlan, and David Sinclair.
