Robert Wyatt | DNO202

Robert’s political views and revolutionary stance also influenced OLD ROTTENHAT which was first released in 1985. The album is dedicated to Michael Bettany who was jailed as a traitor and the overriding themes of the album are of repression of the working classes, alienation, snobbery and individual liberty. Robert even made a conscious effort to produce "un-misusable music" – music where any possible political ambiguity was removed so that it would have to be rejected by anyone promoting corrupt Western culture. That such a beautiful album could result from such stark, uncompromising ideals is a testament to Robert’s unique musical vision and talent.
