Robert Wyatt
CD Reviews
Rock Bottom
Review by Steve Alspach
On June 1, 1973, Robert Wyatt discovered the near-fatal combination of alcohol, an open window, and gravity. Being confined to a wheelchair (to this day), Wyatt scrapped plans for his Matching Mole project and developed his songs with a wider set of musicians.

Matching Mole - March
Review by Steve Alspach
Robert Wyatt once said in a “Musician” magazine article that getting sacked from Soft Machine was more painful to talk about than the “accident” in June 1973 that left him without the use of his legs. Now that’s painful.
