I'm sorry, but I'm not following that logic. What exactly did Wyatt have to do with the Frippertronics to become a progenitor?

Errm... what's difficult about that? Wyatt was on Matching Mole, and through producing that MM album Fripp and Eno got together....

^ Yeah, but that does not answer my question: what did Wyatt have to do with the Frippertronics?

Guess I missed this topic when it came out two years ago.

If it were personal preference, much as I like Fripp I would certainly go with Wyatt, but to answer the poll question, I definitely think that Fripp is the bigger icon of prog.

Hi,

Way too different for my tastes, but I would say that their exploratory nature is way up there.

Did not vote, as I like Robert's "childishness" (my word for it) in what he does, and while I like KC, there are times when I think there is way too much "composition" here and there, for me to appreciate the freedom and the ability to go where no one has been.

Based on the book by Wyatt (Different Every Time), I would think he is much more interesting and special all around, but it's hard to not appreciate Robert Fripp, in the current incarnation of KC and the incredible quality they put into the work which is, likely, even better than many of the originals themselves.
... none of the hits, none of the time ... now you know what the art is all about!
