UK, 1985, Canterbury scene / singer-songwriter / art pop

Robert WyattOld Rottenhat: Lyrically, this is a highly political album of direct social commentary, pulling no punches when it sings of land theft and the exploitation of workers by the ruling class, here in this era of mass media propaganda where words are weapons robbing us of their assumed meaning. Musically it is Wyatt at his most intimate and isolated, slippery, requiring a close listen to get a handle on. But it’s worth it!
