Robert Wyatt – I’m A Believer (Live on Top Of The Pops 1974)

Wyatt hits the cover version jackpot yet again, and here he’s performing it on what was once Britain’s most vacuous TV music show; with Fred Frith (on guitar) no less!. This clip was presumed lost, and the BBC weren’t happy to have a man in a wheelchair on their beloved show (I mean, disabilities are so yucky). Luckily, the clip was preserved, Top Of The Pops is no more, and the public now see the likes of Jimmy Savile as repulsive; rather than people in wheelchairs. Robert Wyatt, a national treasure.
