Ben Watt & Robert Wyatt
Summer Into Winter / North Marine Drive

Ben Watt’s first two solo records the Robert Wyatt collaboration ‘Summer Into Winter’ and ‘North Marine Drive’ are two of the most beautiful ‘bedsit’ records recorded in the cold days of the early 1980’s. I’d always assumed that they were Ben Watt records with Wyatt helping out on ‘Summ...view item »

Robert Wyatt
Nothing Can Stop Us Now

A 1986 release of political torch and protest songs. "Shipbuilding" was released as a single and it remains a great working class song. "At last I am Free" sung in Mr Wyatt's unique nasal dirge is a powerful song. It has a bleak and touching cover of "Strange Fruit" made famous by Billie Holiday. "Red Flag" and "Trade Union" are reminders of how...view item »

Robert Wyatt
Comicopera

I've heard bits of Robert Wyatt material over the years but I'm no expert. I do know that he's somewhat of a legendary singer songwriter that was robbed of the Mercury music prize by some cheeky monkey. So here we have his latest opus 'Comic Opera'.What I get from his music is that he's at peace when he's creating it. It just comes straight from hi...view item »

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 w...view item »

Robert Wyatt
Different Every Time

If the first half of this compilation of Robert Wyatt tracks was planned as `an introduction to’ rather than being aimed at long term fans then it seems an odd choice to open with Soft Machine’s endless impossi-listen ‘Moon In June’.  Its 18 minutes of tedious progressive rock will ...view item »

Robert Wyatt
Nothing Can Stop Us

Wyatt was a peripheral interest for me, mostly post 'Soft Machine', with 'Matching Mole', 'Rock Bottom' & 'Ruth is Stranger Than Fiction'. A 1986 release of political torch and protest songs. "Shipbuilding" was released as a single and it remains a great working class song. "At last I am Free" sung in Mr Wyatt's unique nasal dirge is a power...view item »

Robert Wyatt
Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard

At its heart, Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard is an active listening album. What I mean is, if you don't pay attention when you listen to it, you probably won't enjoy it very much. If you're not already a Robert Wyatt fan, I'm not sure if Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard is the best or most accessible place to start--that honour might go to Rock Bott...view item »

Robert Wyatt
Rock Bottom

Although by the time this album was composed Robert Wyatt had not yet suffered the accident that left him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life, and was only recorded later, there's a certain touch of sorrow in his singing that creeps under your skin throughout the record. So I would say this is...view item »
