At the art college in Edinburgh someone arranged for some London groups to come up and play. I was in a supporting band, with Bernie Green I think. Derek Bailey was one of the visiting musicians. He seemed to like my playing and asked me to come down to London.

About Jamie Muir

Did you know about Jamie Muir?

He really was a catalyst of this band in the beginning and he opened up new areas for Bill [Bill Bruford the group's "conventional" drummer] to look into as well as affecting the rest of us. "
In 1972 Muir decided to pursue a monastic lifestyle in accordance with the strict principles of Buddhism. He spoke of "approach[ing] the rubbish with a total respect for its nature as rubbish" and that "The way to discover the undiscovered in performing terms is to immediately reject all situations as you identify them (the cloud of unknowing) – which is to give music a future".
