Robert Wyatt

What was it like working with the legendary Robert Wyatt on ‘Submarine’ and ‘Oceania’ ?

Incredible. We set up a little system in his home studio, recorded a couple of tracks, then stayed up all night talking and drinking red wine. He played me some amazing bebop Sun Ra recorded in the early 60s and I deejayed some DAF and Brian Eno tracks from my laptop. It was a wonderful experience and I feel very lucky to have met him and his wife Alfie. They’re both really talented people that have created their own little universe away from the world., 18 august 2004
