Wyatt City Blues

There are 4 pages of Robert Wyatt in Record Collector no 345 (January 2008), where Jonathan Wingate interviews Wyatt. They cover the usual areas:life in a wheel chair, bitterness towards Soft Machine, smoking and communism. Wyatt also talks about his depressions, and offer harsh attacks on the imperium, comparing his being English with Ivor Cutlers heritage as a Jew!
Talking about the music of today, Wyatt's answer to the question about the possibility of a new Charlie Parker: "Well, I'm still quite happy with the first one, thank you".
