A-Shleep at the Wheel: Robert Wyatt
Ben Thompson, 'Ways of Hearing', 2001
ROBERT WYATT lives on an isolated estuary in the misty North-East of England, where he sometimes likes to sit in quiet contemplation with his wife - the Spanish artist and poet Alfreda Benge - watching flocks of waders go about their business. "She and I are a group of two really", muses Wyatt tenderly, "Nearly all of Alfie's poems or lyrics that I use are written about experiences that I've shared with her".
