Rediscover the future now!

Norwegian author Øivind Hånes has written a fantastic tribute to Robert Wyatt's "Rock Bottom" in the magazine Kreativt Forum ("Creative Forum") (no 5 2008). It's in Norwegian and so poetic that I don't dare to translate it. Let's just say he describes Wyatt's voice with images like the wind blowing through a hollow dead trunk in an area where no other vegetation exists, and cats walking on broken eggs. Puh! In the end he asks: "What kind of place would this world have been, without this wonderful album?"
