matching mole one

MamoSMMatching_mole02_1003_08Santascoming

An alternative triad of that most moving triptych “O Caroline / Instant pussy / Signed curtainwhich so brilliantly opens Matching Mole’s untitled first lp (CBS 1972), with Robert Wyatt writing and singing one of the most beautiful and (deceivingly) simple songs of heartbreak in history – ultimately meta. All off Esoteric’s Matching Mole (Expanded Edition)2cd (ECLEC 22311, 2012) … Do rush out and buy it, if only for the long (lp) version of O Carolineor for the previously unreleased “Horse” (1972-01). Hey and more on Matching Mole in the previous post!

Esoteric have reissued both Matching Mole albums as “Expanded Edition” 2cd’s with BBC Radio One ànd previously unreleased bonus tracks on a separate disc … There’s no significant overlaps with “Smoke Signals” (2001, live in Europe 1972) and “March” (2002, live in Europe 1972-03) on Cuneiform, though. These two tracks are off the second album “‘s Little Red Record” (CBS 1972, Esoteric 2012 cat. no. ECLEC 22312) as produced by Robert Fripp … Brian Eno plays VCS3 synth on Gloria Gloom(ulloder Richard D James), andGod songhas the most exquisite Robert Wyatt lyrics. “Starting in the middle of the day we can drink our politics away (take one)” and the utterly zany “Mutter” were recorded 1972-08 during album session recordings and have been previously unreleased hitherto.

O TannenbaumWyatt’s way ;-) Recorded Summer 1981, released 1982-03 on Nothing Can Stop Us(Rough Trade) … Robert Wyatt also wrote the liner notes for a 1991 compilation of ‘7Ts piano pieces by Cornelius Cardew which featured Red flag prelude(197X). Hey and can someone please add Mr. Wyatt‘s interpretation to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O_Tannenbaum ?!? [Nope ain’t gonna do it myself.]

wyatt last free

Wyattjazz

“At last I am free” was orginally recorded & released by Chic in 1978. The first Robert Wyatt version dates from 1980 (7″ A side on Rough Trade, b/w “Strange fruit”). And now there’s a brand new version on a trio album … As for Wyatt‘s previous album, here’s Marcello Carlin’s opinion
