Matching mole - Little Red Record  (1972)



Matching Mole's Little Red Record (1972) is the second album of the English Canterbury Scene band Matching Mole. The band was formed in 1971 by Robert Wyatt after he left Soft Machine. Compared to their first album, Little Red Record was more of a team effort, with Wyatt taking a less involved role. It was produced by Robert Fripp of King Crimson, and features Brian Eno as a guest musician.

The album title refers to Chairman Mao's Little Red Book. This reference is also carried over to the faux-Chinese style of the album cover, which is reminiscent of posters created during the Chinese Cultural Revolution.


    "Starting In The Middle Of The Day We Can Drink Our Politics Away" (MacRae/Wyatt) – 2:31
    "Marchides" (MacRae) – 8:25
    "Nan True's Hole" (Miller) – 3:37
    "Righteous Rhumba" (aka "Lything And Gracing") (Miller) – 2:50
    "Brandy As In Benji" (MacRae) – 4:24
    "Gloria Gloom" (MacCormick/Wyatt) – 8:05
    "God Song" (Miller/Wyatt) – 2:59
    "Flora Fidgit" (MacCormick) – 3:27
    "Smoke Signal" (MacRae) – 6:38

For the BGO (Beat Goes On Records) CD edition Robert Wyatt asked that the album be rearranged so that Side 2 (of the vinyl album) came first as he thought in retrospect that this created a better flow to the album so it became:

    "Gloria Gloom" (MacCormick/Wyatt) – 8:05
    "God Song" (Miller/Wyatt) – 2:59
    "Flora Fidgit" (MacCormick) – 3:27
    "Smoke Signal" (MacRae) – 6:38
    "Starting In The Middle Of The Day We Can Drink Our Politics Away" (MacRae/Wyatt) – 2:31
    "Marchides" (MacRae) – 8:25
    "Nan True's Hole" (Miller) – 3:37
    "Righteous Rhumba" (aka "Lything And Gracing") (Miller) – 2:50
    "Brandy As In Benji" (MacRae) - 6:38)
