Robert Wyatt - Rock Bottom (Virgin V2017) Produced by Pink Floyd's Nick Mason, Robert Wyatt's second solo effort is notable not only for the brilliant compositions contained within, but for being the moment that Wyatt's riotous Keith Moon-like behaviour came to an abrupt end, when the drunken ex-...

Whippersnapper - Promises (WPS WPS001) By the mid-1980s I was pretty much part of the local folk scene and hungry to book some of the great acoustic acts in the country, Martin Simpson, Bert Jansch, June Tabor etc. When Whippersnapper burst onto the scene with this first album Promises, they rose...
