Wyatt on Mojo and Uncut CDs

I guess the rest of the world already know this, but the new Mojo and Uncut issues just arrived here in Norway, so here we go.
MOJO´s album is called "The man machine. Mojo celebrates the electronic revolution", and Hot Chip with Robert Wyatt and Geese´s "We´re looking for a lot of love" is on it.
The people of Uncut have chosen the best 150 albums of this decade (as they see it), and on the accompanying CD we find 15 tracks from some of these fine albums. Robert Wyatt is here with "Lullaloop" from "Cuckooland".

Robert Wyatt got two albums among the 150 chosen ones, "Cuckooland" (2003) and "Comicopera" (2007) (57th and 144th place). Wyatt is also represented on two other albums, Paul Weller´s "22 Dreams" (2008) (he´s on one track) and Rachel Unthank & The Wintersets "The Bairns" (2007) (perfect "Sea Song" cover).
I´m also glad to find John Cale, Richard Thompson, PJ Harvey and Antony & The Johnsons on the list, and I don´t mind White Stripes and Jack White either, being the real winners of the game.
