His is magical, fascinating music. I think about "Sea song" almost every day. "Moon in June" is the apotheosis of the one-man-band in rock music. I wonder if Devin Davis heard it before recording that Irving Philharmonic record; they both sound like a full band channeling one stream of consciousness.

He was an awesome drummer, but I still liked his vocals more than his drumming.

Probably my favorite after Rock Bottom. First track almost sounds like Wyatt's take on "Heart of Glass".

Also, if anyone here hasn't checked out William Doyle's album from last year, it's got huge Wyatt vibes (though never reaches the same highs, because no one else can actually BE Robert Wyatt): https://williamdoyle.bandcamp.com/album/your-wilderness-revisited

Fell down a Wyatt rabbit hole, and can report Shleep is particularly good for the soul three months into lockdown. Also seems like a record David Bowie listened to a few times before writing Blackstar.
