Robert Wyatt på Cafe Oto

Torsdag 12. april ble det arrangert "The Wire Salon: An audience with Robert Wyatt" på Cafe Oto i London.

Sakser fra reklamen: "For April’s edition of The Wire Salon, the great singer-songwriter and National Living Treasure will take to the Cafe Oto stage for a second discussion, but this time he will be playing back and talking about selected tracks from his own back catalogue, a unique body of work that includes the first wave English psychedelia of Soft Machine, and a series of solo recordings which combine radical political sentiments with an aesthetic sensibility informed by Vaudeville, 60s pop, modern jazz, Cuban music and more".

Rapporter på Twitter tyder på at dette var en storslagen kveld, og The Wire trøstet oss som ikke var tilstede, at de hadde spilt inn seansen (bare lyd?). Den postes selvsagt her, straks den blir offentlig.

Fabio Lugaro og Cafe Oto la ut fine bilder på Flickr.

På spørsmål om meningen med sangene sine, hevdes det (i følge @paulbarnett1 på Twitter) at Wyatt svarte "..my songs have meaning in the same way that cat's eyes have meaning to a drunk driver".
