Robert Wyatt: Local Hero

The Wire published a fine interview with Robert Wyatt in 1997 (#163), and now they have put it on their web site. Thanks!
Interviewer: Biba Kopf.
Photographer: Michelle Turiani.

"I love major chords, I could just go on and on, play C-EG on an organ and just hold it. I do like the basic alphabet of the common musical language, as much as I like what has been done with it, which is why I have never abandoned it to just become an explorer of new music. So there are a lot of people I would never ask to play on my records, because I know that they would feel uncomfortable with chords that have been dealt with" (RW).
