Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2002-11-25
Super fine prog jazz recorded live in 1973. Bad ass drumming, super tight electric bass and keys that come across like Black Sabbath riffs at times, topped off with Wyatt doing experimental vocalizations now and then. This was a brief side project of Robert Wyatt (Soft Machine) where he teamed up with Bill MacCormick, Dave MacCrae and Phil Miller (bass, keys, guit, respect.). What really shines on this recording is Miller’s perfect guitar playing (Colin, are you listening?), searing yet undeniably jazzy and tasteful. For fans of later Miles Davis, Soft Machine, Eno’s 801. Rightous. For more, check out our vinyl copy of “little red record”, or the CD “smoke signals”. An amazing band.
All tracks blend together

1) lots of mellow parts juxtaposed with strangeness
2) mellow mindful bass playing, super strange vocalizations by Wyatt take center
3) guitar takes center
4) excellent guit and bass interaction and tone, vocalizations near end
5) floatier feel
6) upbeat driving, more excellent guit/bass interaction, super amazing distorto keys lead/solo, whew
7) very prog, melodic and disjunct
