    From ProgressiveRock :
    Matching Mole was Robert Wyatt’s post-Soft Machine group, its name derived from roughly the French equivalent for "Soft Machine". He recruited a great band; bassist Bill MacCormick was previously in Quiet Sun, guitarist Phil Miller in Delivery, and pianist David McRae in Nucleus. He also managed to draw Dave Sinclair from Caravan, who rounded out the lineup as the second keyboardist. The debut album began with Wyatt’s idiosyncratic and affected "O Caroline", one of two vocal songs on the record. That slides straight into the sublime "Instant Pussy", where Wyatt’s voice was used in a non-singing role. From there, the album was instrumental, flush with fusion-like textures that rely heavy on improvisation. There is a hint of the so-called Canterbury sound, but the playing was distinctively looser and decidedly jazzier. Of course, the performances are all first rate, particularly on Miller’s "Part Of The Dance", the only non-Wyatt composition. The album closed with the Crimson-esque Mellotron fest "Immediate Curtain". Not surprisingly then, Fripp was called in to produce the band’s second album, Little Red Record, released in October of the same year. Absent was Wyatt from the composition credits and Sinclair’s fuzzed-out Hammond, the latter having left for Hatfield & the North. Overall, the sound was decidedly heavier; the first side played right through. The second side started with the uncharacteristic "Gloria Gloom" sounding not unlike its title with guest super-star Eno contributing. Miller’s "God Song" filled the "song" quotient on the album. The debut’s charming cover was replaced with an equally charming play on a Chinese communist post card, a not-so-subtle hint at Wyatt’s politics. In June 1973, Wyatt’s paralysis from an accident led to the group’s abrupt end, shortly before a third album with a new lineup (with Francis Monkman on bass) could be recorded. Wyatt spent the next six months in hospital recuperating.
