Just so you don't forget that this is in fact a Robert Wyatt blog, please read this interview from Independent in 1997:
Interview: Robert Wyatt The only way is up when you've hit rock bottom.
"..Wyatt looks back on the hippie politics of the Sixties with disdain. "A mass narcissism that allowed people to forget the whole thing. The personal is political therefore if I'm nice... it just shades off into Barbara Cartland really.""
The interview was done when Robert Wyatt released "Shleep", one of the albums you really need in your collection!
Also take a look at Marc Marnie's fine portraits on Flickr.
