Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the
release of a Deluxe 2CD Expanded edition of Matching Mole’s self-titled
debut album.
Formed in 1971, Matching Mole featured former SOFT MACHINE drummer
ROBERT WYATT, former CARAVAN keyboard player DAVE SINCLAIR, guitarist
PHIL MILLER, bassist BILL McCORMICK with guest keyboard player DAVE
MacRAE. Recorded between December 1971 and February 1972, “MATCHING
MOLE” was a wonderful debut that included tracks such as ‘O Caroline’,
‘Signed Curtain’ and ‘Part of the Dance’.

This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly re-mastered from the
original master tapes and is expanded to include five previously
unreleased studio session alternate takes, the single versions of ‘O
Caroline’ and ‘Signed Curtain’, along with two BBC Radio One sessions
from 1972. The booklet restores all original artwork and includes and
essay by Sid Smith.


The self titled debut, at times close to a Wyatt solo effort, veers from the nakedly honest break-up song ‘O Caroline’ to instrumental jazz-rock, via the pataphysical and postmodern ‘Signed Curtain’. (4/5*)
