MOJO No. 300



Finally Mojo´s issue no. 300 is in the shelves here in Norway too.

The cover is a nice tribute to Beatles´ white album of course and the CD that comes with the magazine has a previously unreleased track by Robert Wyatt.

The Wyatt song is a beautiful demo of Robert Wyatt singing the Paul Weller lyrics to "Invisible", a song later used on Weller´s "22 Dreams" (2008).

From Mojo:
"I owe so much to Paul, he´s been so encouraging over the years", Wyatt tells us, "and he played on half a dozen of the best recordings I´ve been able to make. This is my way of saying "Thank you, Paul"."

Rock Bottom - Animated film

What? An animated film called "Rock Bottom" on Robert Wyatt?

See "Así será 'Rock Bottom', la película de animación sobre el pionero de la música psicodélica Robert Wyatt" on valenciaplaza.com

Google Translate:

"The project, which has just received a grant from the Valencian Institute of Cinematography, is led by the Valencian illustrator and filmmaker María Trenor (winner of 15 awards at festivals such as the Berlinale with her short film Con que la lavare ?, and candidate for a Goya for the animated short ExLibris); the scriptwriter and draftsman Joaquín Ojeda (known for his works in television and award-winning films such as El Cielo Sube or the aforementioned Con la lavare?), and animation director Raúl Colomer (who has also participated in productions such as ExLibris or El vendedor de smoke, winner of a Goya in 2013). The team will be completed with 60 professionals specialized in 3D animation. It will be recorded in English, it will be about 80 minutes long and will involve two and a half years of work. The estimated budget is 4 million euros."
