Kevin Ayers: Invisible Jukebox

Mike Barnes, Wire, The, December 2002

KEVIN AYERS was one of many curious teenagers who gravitated towards Wellington House at Lydden, near Canterbury, in the early '60s. The house was owned by Robert Wyatt's parents and was a focal point for artistic activity. An itinerant Australian beatnik, Daevid Allen (later of Gong), was one of the many lodgers.
