Product Description:

Matching Mole includes: Robert Wyatt.
Released later in the same year as their debut, this 1972 album was the band's last. The punningly titled band (an English pronunciation of the French translation of Robert Wyatt's previous band, Soft Machine) broke up just after it was issued. This outing is a bit more experimental than its predecessor, favoring a range of sonic experiments, such as "Gloria Gloom." This also marked the debut of one of Wyatt's most gorgeous enduring songs, "God Song." Its quiet bearing actually points the way for his classic solo albums that followed a few years later (Rock Bottom and Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard). Produced by Robert Fripp, this album presents the more intellectual and introspective side of the era's British progressive bands. It has aged very well over the decades and is an important chapter in Wyatt's varied career and output. ~ Rovi Staff
