Music today has been Robert Wyatt’s last album Comicopera (2007). I love Robert Wyatt, his voice, words, music, vibe and sadly as he is retired, this is the last album of new material we will get from him. He’s somewhat off the radar commercially, probably more so outside England but even there you’d have to have been a searcher to uncover nine magnificent solo albums, the first four Soft Machine albums, Matching Mole and a whole lot of EPs, collaborations, guest appearances and tributes. Somehow, someone managed to leave Matching Mole, one of my favourite projects by him, off his discography page.
“Wyatt retired from his music career in 2014, stating “there is a pride in [stopping], I don’t want [the music] to go off.”
