Haighest of Haighs

It was a pleasure and a privilege to speak with Robert Haigh for The Wire a few weeks ago, for a feature - out any minute now in the March issue of the magazine - that takes in the whole arc of his career: from a surprising early start, through postpunk and the esoteric UK underground of the Eighties, onto rave and the Moving Shadow golden years, then the 21st Century return to solo piano that culminated in last year's lovely and limpid Creatures Of the Deep

At The Wire website, here's a playlist chosen by Rob of some piano music that's influenced and affected him. 

Below is a pictorial journey across Rob's career (including a couple of rare photographs of the man himself) followed by a few of the less obvious gems from his discography.
