Synopsis

Product Description
Previously unreleased material made by Robert Wyatt (Soft Machine) in the studio for an Italian radio program in 1981. Wyatt himself described the experience as 'a chance to expand ideas to bring to life outside the music business, which is just one big fashion industry...normally you have to obtain money for studio time and aim at a particular recording for a particular product. So after three days of testing, the eight-track started officially rolling - piano, vocals, hi-hat, a jaw harp - laying down track after track, until the Roman radio guys ended up with 45 minutes of music, 8 tracks including Born Again Cretin, a song about Nelson Mandela, the Opium War, with garbled vocals, and Heathens Have No Souls, featuring a jaw harp.
