  Robert Wyatt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Robert Wyatt, born Robert Ellidge, in Bristol on 28 January 1945, is an English musician, and a former member of the influential Canterbury scene band Soft Machine.
Wyatt won the day and 'lost his rag but not the wheel chair', but gave a performance that could be described as disgruntled.
In 2004, Wyatt collaborated with Björk on the song "Submarine" which was released on her fifth album Medúlla.

 CMT.com : Robert Wyatt : Biography
After months of painful recuperation, Wyatt reemerged with the harrowing Rock Bottom (1974) and the bizarre Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard (1975), the former dealing explicitly with his post-accident life, the latter a series of surreal fables.
Despite his success, Wyatt remained quiet for much of the rest of the decade, breaking his silence during the punk era with a handful of singles recorded for the great English indie label Rough Trade.
His albums were lush, at times almost meditative, and Wyatt's voice -- clear, emotionally charged, and always on the verge of breaking -- brought great depth and soul to songs that, if recorded by a lesser artist, would have sounded terse and tired.

 Amazon.com: Rock Bottom: Music: Robert Wyatt   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Robert Wyatt's 1974 masterpiece Rock Bottom is among the most layered, lovely, and luscious pop records ever as well as a testament to survival.
As Wyatt explains in the notes, "The night before the new group was to have its first rehearsal, I fell from a fourth floor window and broke my spine." Produced by Nick Mason, the cream of England's vital prog-rock scene contributed their most subtle, least-wanky efforts for their dear friend's solo recording.
Wyatt lets the track slowly build momentum, and along with the melancholy synth, is arguably inventive and builds on the abundance of ideas throughout the album, and although the unusual sounds, may disorientated new listeners, they demand several listens to fully appriceate.

 TrouserPress.com :: Robert Wyatt
Having first come to prominence as founding drummer/vocalist with Canterbury's Soft Machine, Bristol-born Robert Wyatt is one of the English art-schools' most notable (and best-loved) musical alumni, retaining that genre's spirit of musical adventurousness without indulging in the bloated pretensions that sidetracked many of his contemporaries.
Setting out to record a solo album, Wyatt assembled the quartet Matching Mole —; the name is a phonetic adaptation of the French translation of "soft machine" — and released two albums of meandering (and occasionally charming) pieces, mostly instrumentals, under the rubric.
Wyatt lay low for the remainder of the '70s, finally reemerging at the turn of the decade with a series of four audacious Rough Trade singles.

The remarkable details of their sojourn there and ultimate breakup have been told in several books: T.S.

Cuckooland, Robert Wyatt's first full-length of new material since 1997's Shleep, is no less mischievous, witty, and poignant.
Most importantly, Wyatt has demonstrated once again that it makes no difference what else is going on in the pop world, he still creates a fiercely independent and wide open notion of song and composition that is always abundantly "musical", topically relevant, as well as entertaining, provocative, and completely, utterly engaging from top to bottom.
Robert Wyatt continues to go his own way, unaffected by fashion, commercial considerations or the need to sing in tune.

Wyatt's first album as a solo artist was recorded in the aftermath of tragic circumstances; confined to a wheelchair after a fall from from a fourth-floor window.
