Another batch of Wyatt reissues on cool-as-hats Domino, this time the dryish 'Old Rottenhat' (surely his most overrated hat) and 'Dondestan', plus the lovely 'Shleep' from a decade ago.

After 'Rock Bottom', it's his airiest, most enigmatic album, a cloud formation of music which shape-shifts before your ears in a drift of nebulous modalities above a post-jazzy bog of synthetic squelches. Plus Paul Weller. Stranger things have been brought together, but not many.
