Matching Mole's version of Instant Pussy, and many other live performances of it by Robert Wyatt, have all been instrumental. On a fabulous Canterbury website it specifies there is a non-Matching Mole version with intriguing lyrics, does any one know where this version could be found?

I know that site too. I was waiting for Wyatt to sing in all the song until I read below the lyrics that the Matching Mole version was instrumental. I was like "Doh!"

I think theres a version on Soft Machines 67-71 BBC sessions of it with vocals, I could be wrong though.

My reviews in case anyone caresTongue:



MATCHING MOLE Matching Mole

Review by ../Collaborators.asp?id=3260 - Zac M (formerly meurglysIII)

4 stars This is a definitely a highlight of the Canterbury sub-genre. Robert Wyatt decided to form a new band after Soft Machine started heading a direction closer to jazz. Wyatt still creates challenging and experimental music that is as enjoyable as Soft Machine releases. The band consists of Wyatt (ex-Soft Machine), Dave Sinclair (ex-Caravan), Phil Miller (future Hatfield and the North, National Health), and Bill MacCormick, who has played with various other musicians. They are all Canterbury super stars in their own right.

The album starts out with "O Caroline," a signature Wyatt tune with great lyrics. It's very emotional and catchy, but still adhering to the Canterbury sound; it's truly a favorite among fans of Wyatt's work. The mellotron sound is evident in this and many of the tracks that follow. The next few pieces are experimental tracks. In "Signend Curtain," Wyatt uses the structure of the piece to create song lyrics (i.e. "This is the chorus..."), an obvious aspect of Canterbury humor. "Part of the Dance" and " Dedicated to Hugh..." are probably to of my favorite tracks on the album. "Dedicated..." is an obvious reference to Wyatt's former band, Soft Machine, moreso Hugh Hopper, the bassist, who was still with Soft Machine when the material for this album was recorded. The last two tracks are more of the same experimentation, but fail to captivate me as the earlier pieces did.

Every Canterbury fan should own or at least look into this album. Fans of experimental music would most likely enjoy this album as well. I find this to be much better than the next release (Little Red Record). Although the second one is good, it just doesn't capture the magic that this album has to offer. Four stars, not quite a masterpiece, but an excellent addition to any Canterbury fan's collection.


MATCHING MOLE Little Red Record

4 stars This is the lesser of the two Matching Mole albums IMO. That being said, this is still quite an enjoyable album. The two studio releases only differ by a half star as far as I'm concerned. If I remember correctly, Fripp and Eno both appeared on this album, with Fripp taking the seat as the Producer.

The album opens with "Starting in the Middle of the Day, We Can Drink Our Politics Away," a song just as good as "O Caroline" from the first album. This track bridges into "Marchides," a Mole classic as far as I'm concerned. Among the rest of the album, I also enjoy "Gloria Gloom" and "Smoke Signals," another classic. The longer tracks on this album are for the most part, more enjoyable than the shorter ones. However, I can't say that there is one particularly bad or weak part on the album. I just don't feel that this album deserves more than four stars, since the first and more importamt of the two, gets 4.5.

Great effort from Wyatt's post-Soft Machine group, and definitely worth checking out by all Canterbury fans, although I still say start with the first. 4 stars, excellent sophomore album.

The best version of instant Pussy is on the very short Cd BBC sessions, where Wyatt stats his way through
 
Meows like a cat in heat and sounds a bit like my girlfriend when I'm busy with her.
