Thanks for this, Glenn. Didn't really know much of her work, comparatively -- Henry Cow and Art Bears are two groups I've held off delving into as yet, surprisingly enough for someone made a little too uncomfortable by "Losing My Edge" -- but I spent the better part of a year in exile from NYC listening to little but David Thomas's MONSTER box set, with nothing but Thomas's voice and concertina, Richard Thompson's guitar, and especially Lindsay Cooper's woodwinds seeming to make sense to me. Nice to finally know a little something about the person behind that beautiful sound. Again, thanks.


Dear Glenn, you might like to hear Lindsay's friends and associates talk about her, as well as play snippets of her work, on the BBC Radio 4 programme Last Word. If you go to this url http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03bsb9w you should be able to work out how to access the listen again function. But do it soon as it will only be available for a week.
