Put a Slapp Happy platter on the gramophone!
A wet easter holiday, made perfect conditions for a dive in the record collection. Three bands, that may have a Robert Wyatt connection: Slapp Happy, Henry Cow and Art Bears. Most of the suspects: Peter Blegvad, John Greaves, Anthony More, Dagmar Krause, Fred Frith, Lindsay Cooper, Chris Cutler and Tim Hodgkinson.
The connection? Wyatt is on Henry Cow's "Concerts", joined the band on several occations and he sings on two of John Greaves' records. Fred Frith plays on "Rock Bottom" and "Ruth is stranger...", and John Greaves joins on the latter.
