5 stars The story about the conception of the masterpiece is well-known by everybody : Robert Wyatt, Soft Machine's former drummer, then leader of Matching Mole, break is spine in a stupid drunk party accident in 1972. He spends a lot of time in hospital, leg-paralysed for life, glued in a wheelchair, and instead of doing painting or crosswords, wrote some new arrangements for the songs he wrote a few months ago in Venice (before his accident). No longer he could play drums, so he turns himself to keyboards and singing. With the help of Richard Branson and Pink Floyd's drummer Nick Mason, he recorded, with some friends (Mike Oldfield, Ivor Cutler, Hugh Hopper...) and his wife Alfreda Benge, the entirety of the well-named album, Rock Bottom. The following, what will happen then, is pure history. This is a masterpiece, no more, no less. 6 purely magnifcent song. Wyatt broke himself, but speaks here with his heart.
