About this item

Originally conceived as the songs that would form Matching Mole's third studio album, Wyatt was forced to adjust his whole recording / band / personal ethos after the accident which broke his spine in 1973. Featuring a line-up that includes Soft Machine's Hugh Hopper, Laurie Allen from Gong and Mike Oldfield, "Rock Bottom" was issued in 1974 and is a haunting and yet intimate collection, at times painful and emotionally raw, at others elegiac and full of hope and love. A genuine classic.
