C'era concitazione al banchetto del merchandising durante la serata Wyatt alla Queen Elizabeth Hall a Londra domenica scorsa: per ammirare in anteprima - e sperare di prenotarne una copia - le stampe delle opere grafiche di Alfreda Benge per gli album Rock Bottom e Ruth is Stranger than Richard realizzate e distribuite da Hypergallery, per procurarsi il libro di Marcus O'Dair pubblicato da Serpent's Tail o per confrontare i vari formati con cui Domino Records ha contestualmente prodotto l'antologia bifronte - curata in prima persona da Robert Wyatt - con lo stesso titolo del libro, Different Every Time.

Curated by Robert Wyatt together with Domino and biographer Marcus O’Dair, the double album Different Every Time features disk 1 ‘Ex Machina’, the ideal introduction for the Wyatt novice, compiling tracks from Robert’s entire career to date and acting as a companion to O’Dair’s new biography, also titled Different Every Time (released by Serpent’s Tail on the 30th of October). Disk 2 brings together the best of Robert’s collaborations and guest appearances, or, as Robert has it, ‘Benign Dictatorships’, including some very special oddities and rarities available here for the very first time.
