Robert Wyatt Vinyl, CD & tapes by Robert Wyatt at Norman Records

There’s no-one quite like Robert Wyatt in English rock music’s rich tapestry. An old jazz-influenced prog rocker at heart, he’s had an idiosyncratic career which took in appearances on Top of the Pops, being re-evaluated in the early 80s on Rou...read more »

The Future Eve featuring Robert Wyatt
KiTsuNe / Brian the Fox

Japanese producer The Future Eve joins forces with Robert Wyatt on KiTsuNe / Brian the Fox, an experimental electronic album. Known for his minimalist compositions under the moniker Tomo Akikawabaya, The Future Eve and Robert Wyatt create an emotive synth soundscape which can be equal parts haunting and beautiful. 

Robert Wyatt
Shleep

There are many musicians who I wish would retire but one of them isn't Robert Wyatt.  Therefore it's a real shame that he is to make no more music. Instead let's be grateful that there is a large back catalogue to trawl through. 'Shleep' is his 1997 album which at that point was his first in six years. As always it's a glorious and eccentric work. He's one of the few people who can have Paul Weller guesting and yet it still doesn't put you off.  

Robert Wyatt
Nothing Can Stop Us Now

Though he could have been seen by some as a relic from the '60s and '70s, Robert Wyatt was at his most potent in the early '80s. Taken under the wing of the left leaning Rough Trade label he produced a string of excellent singles  - all cover versions which were collected onto Nothing Can Stop Us Now. The headliner is the remarkable Top 40 hit Shipbuilding but Wyatt's take on Chic's At Last I Am Free and Billie Holiday's Strange Fruit are spine tingling.

Robert Wyatt
Comicopera

It's incredibly frustrating that so many artists continue to release sub par work well into old age while Robert Wyatt has decided to retire. The only option is to go back and to listen to his older albums. The last of these to date (he says hopefully) is Comicopera  - a 2007 album featuring the likes of Brian Eno, Paul Weller and Phil Manzanera. It is of course superb and won that year's The Wire Album of the Year. 

Robert Wyatt
68

The old bearded prog-master himself, Robert Wyatt sings in a wide-eyed, articulate voice and crafts weird little songs around the edges, with piano, off-kilter harmonies and choruses that remind one of the sugar-pop days of Steely Dan more than anything else. In 1968, Wyatt took some downtime away from Soft Machine to make his own music, which was disregarded to rev up the Soft Machine again. '68' finally gives us a glimpse at those long-lost recordings. 

Robert Wyatt
Different Every Time

He's got a huge beard and he's releasing a new record: that is literally all you can ask from Robert Wyatt. 'Different Every Time' compile two elements of Wyatt's work. One side is for the wee perplexed, introducing the songwriter to a new, clueless generation, while the second collects together his best feature work in a career filled to the brim with successful collaborations -- from Bjork to John Cage to uh, Hot Chip? Go in, Robert.

Theatre Royal Drury Lane

Does what it says on the tin I suppose in that this is a live recording of the legendary Robert Wyatt Live in concert in 1974. He'd just released Rock Bottom and his star was somewhat in the ascendancy so was here joined by 'friends' such as Mike Oldfield and Nick Mason (Pink Floyd) to help realise his singular brand of prog-pop. 

Robert Wyatt
Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard

Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard was Robert Wyatt's third solo album and in complete contrast to the previous all self penned Rock Bottom features interpretations of music from other musicians. It is split into two sides Ruth and Richard (naturally) and features some of Wyatt's most playful work. It wasn't particularly well received though and it would be another ten years until Wyatt released another studio album.

Robert Wyatt
Rock Bottom

The second solo album from former Soft Machine drummer Robert Wyatt and originally released in 1974, Rock Bottom has always been a painfully disconcerting listen. Written in hospital while recovering from an accident that has confined him to a wheelchair ever since, its abstract and often disturbed sketches are nevertheless shot through with hope.
