Clash writes: Paul Weller, Robert Wyatt To Play Concert For Jeremy Corbyn.
"Paul Weller and Robert Wyatt are amongst the artists who are set to play the opening instalment of PEOPLE POWERED: Concerts For Corbyn.
The concert series has been pieced together by music writer Lois Wilson, live music figure Paul Phillips, and Unison Officer/Brighton Momentum Organisers Sarah Pickett and James Ellis.
The first show takes place at Brighton's Dome venue on December 16th, and features an all-star band led by Paul Weller.
Excitingly, the line up features Robert Wyatt, with the legendary singer set to come out of retirement to support Jeremy Corbyn."

Hey, this is happening tonight (10 September 2016) in Mantova (Italy)!
Here is the result of translating Italian into English on Google Translate (from this site):
"To draw a portrait of Wyatt - stimulated by the questions of Giorgio Signoretti - will be Alessandro Achilli, the Italian journalist who more than any other has been able to learn about the amazing love story that binds the English artist in our country, even taking care of the translation the two fundamental wyattiane biographies of Michael King (False Movement) and Marcus O'Dair (Different Every Time). To enrich the meeting some valuable live performance by the duo Hobo Massimo Guintoli and Heloise Manera, in addition to the screening of video materials not easy to find".
"Smoke Signals compiles all previously unreleased performances - selected & sequenced by Robert Wyatt biographer Mike King - from the band's most intense gigging period. The set list is mostly drawn from Little Red Record.." Released May 22, 2001.
"In 2001, Cuneiform released Smoke Signals, a collection of unreleased performances. The band was so pleased with that album that when one of the members came across a forgotten live show on tape - identified simply as "March, 1972", they immediately contacted us, and March is the result. Recorded live in Europe 3/72.." Released September 17, 2002.
