WEEK-END MIXTAPE #3: Robert Wyatt

WEEK-END MIXTAPE #3: Robert Wyatt


About the show

Playing tracks by

Bertold Brecht, Bernard Bresslaw, Pavarotti + James Brown, Archie Shepp, Zaz and more.

Many artists don’t like talking about their art. After all, art should speak for itself and always means different things to different people. Sometimes they have to take a bit of a roundabout route to open up: for example, by talking about the artists that mean a lot to them. The podcast Robert Wyatt has made especially for Week-End festival is a wonderful example. By talking about—and playing—his “most personal recorded souvenirs” he gives more of an intimate insight into his world than can be gained from many interviews about his own work. We find out from whom he has his “singing not-singing” style, what can be learnt from Berthold Brecht the singer and which 1964 R’n’B song played an important role in him becoming a professional musician.
