Previously released only in Japan as a limited edition, the 17 track album is the perfect introduction to the music of Robert Wyatt.
As Robert says, “A thoughtful chap in Japan brought these tunes together as a sort of canter around my back catalogue: a reminder or introduction. I’m grateful to Domino for giving it a run round the block over here. And blimey! My little drawings were done about sixty years ago....how retrospective can you get?”
(p.s, Arauco [tiene una pena] lists indigenous cultures more or less extinguished by several centuries of european invaders in what is now called Chile. Robert Y@.)
Around the release of Comicopera Robert Wyatt did a special Q&A at the Purcell Rooms and talked in depth about all manner of things.
