People always talk about Robert Wyatt but I know nothing of his music. Can anybody recommend any albums?


Rock Bottom; Comicopera; Shleep - and Different Every Time is a career retrospective. he was the drummer in Soft Manchine, fell out of a top floor window when drunk and paralysed from the waist down. Sang the original version of Shipbuilding.

Thanks Gambo. Probably the only thing I knew was the Shipbuilding credit. I think I had a clip of him performing it on an Old Grey Whistle Test comp. DVD. Thanks for the album tips.

Elvis came up with the words and Clive Langer penned the melody. It sits uneasily at the end of side 1 on Punch the Clock.
