Soft Machine are an English progressive rock band from Canterbury, named after the book The Soft Machine by William S. Burroughs. They were one of the central bands in the Canterbury scene, and helped pioneer the progressive rock genre. Though they achieved little commercial success, they are considered by AllMusic to be "one of the more influential bands of their era, and certainly one of the most influential underground ones."
