David Chiu´s interview with Vivien Goldman for The Quietus, "Punky Reggae Party Politics: Vivien Goldman interview" (July 9th) should be of interest to Robert Wyatt fans.
"I think everyone was amused by ‘Launderette’, it has a charm. It was so typical of the time.” Robert Wyatt also provided percussion on that track. “He really had significant input,” said Goldman.”I didn't really have a vision of the drums, but he knew what just to do, so delicate and instinctive. Even now, people refer to that sound of ‘Launderette’—it's tough but light.”
