The first of two tapes in Paul Buck's Pressed Curtains series, the second being 'Pressed Curtains: Tape 2/3' by Buck and Ulli McCarthy. In his 'Sleeve Notes etc' to 'Paul Buck's Pressed Curtains Tape Project' (Test Centre, 2015), a boxed set of these and unreleased recordings, Buck explains his tape releases in the context of his magazine 'Curtains': 'Halfway through the 1970s, the notion of performing, whether relating to "performance art" or in terms of the oral tradition of poetry, was another factor that  . This reading by Mottram, in Buck and Glenda George's living room, ushered the project into existence. The tape is dated '1976/77'.

Eric Clapton is the debut solo studio album by British rock musician Eric Clapton, released in August 1970 under Atco and Polydor Records. After being successful with bands including The Yardbirds, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, Cream and Blind Faith, Clapton recorded an album under his own name in late 1969 and early 1970. The album cover shows Clapton sitting in a room which is going to be decorated and in which a ladder, a chair and some carpets are placed.

Mottram was born in London and educated at Purley Grammar School, Croydon, and Blackpool Grammar School, Lancashire. In 1943, he was awarded a scholarship to Pembroke College, Cambridge, but opted to serve in the Royal Navy instead, only taking up the scholarship in 1947

Thank you! Welcome to Eric Clapton's mailing list.

Mottram taught full-time at King’s College until the early 1990s so I just missed him. He continued to teach part-time in a limited capacity until 1994 so his presence was felt in the English Department. His name graced the professorship in American Literature at Kings as testament to his influence. The position was held by Clive Bush, and it was through his class that I first came in contact with Charles Olson and The Maximus Poems.

Notes

The first of two tapes in Paul Buck's Pressed Curtains series, the second being 'Pressed Curtains: Tape 2/3' by Buck and Ulli McCarthy. In his 'Sleeve Notes etc' to 'Paul Buck's Pressed Curtains Tape Project' (Test Centre, 2015), a boxed set of these and unreleased recordings, Buck explains his tape releases in the context of his magazine 'Curtains': 'Halfway through the 1970s, the notion of performing, whether relating to "performance art" or in terms of the oral tradition of poetry, was another factor that became part of the fabric. I was combining the two courses and exploring the oral in terms of poetry, music, art and ethnic traditions. It seemed natural to extend the boundaries of 'Curtains' into a cassette tape series, even if no sophisticated equipment was available, either at home or nearby.' This reading by Mottram, in Buck and Glenda George's living room, ushered the project into existence. The tape is dated '1976/77'. It was followed by a shared tape of Buck performing 'xxxx7' (part of 'xxxx 1-9', which remains uncollected) and McCarthy (now Freer) reading counter to a loop of Erik Satie's 'Gymnopedies'. Copies of the tapes were made to order from the masters, and Buck handwrote information onto the sleeves and labels. Two other tapes were recorded but never issued, by Bill Griffiths and Pierre Joris, and on the final page of 'bal:le:d curtains' Buck described Allen Fisher and Iain Sinclair as future contributors, although in the end they were never recorded specifically for the series.
