It’s been a while since we’ve seen Robert on TV. A few days ago Robert sat at the studio of RT London to discuss his music and mostly his political views. Starting at ~13:00.
Robert Wyatt, a music legend and a vindication of John Lennon’s observation that a working-class hero is something to be. With Soft Machine, as a solo artist and as a collaborator with the likes of Elvis Costello, he transformed the British music scene; but just as important, he has clung all his life to the need of a still greater transformation: that of society as a whole. He has had his shoulder to the wheel in many great British struggles, not the least of them the miners’ strike 30 years ago. He came into the Sputnik studio to talk about politics, music and much more.
