Robert Wyatt and Alfreda Benge “Chat”

Dave Larder is chatting with Robert Wyatt and Alfie for the Lincolnshire Art and Music Bulletin.

Unfortunately I am not able to embed it here, so run on over to SoundCloud for a listen.

Dave Larder says: This is not really an interview, it’s more of a chat mainly because (1) Robert can talk for hours and (2) I don’t claim to be any sort of interviewer. Also, due to my technical inability, the songs that we talk about are not chronologically linked throughout the talking. Instead, I have published a play list – and listeners can choose how and when they listen to the songs.
