Robyn Hitchcock - Syd Barrett Bday Show

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Robyn Hitchcock is one of England's most enduring contemporary singer / songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician's musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock's father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration).

Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as well as starred in 'Storefront Hitchcock' an in concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme.
Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as 'paintings you can listen to'.

~~~~~~~~

"To say that SHUFFLEMANIA! belongs in the man's upper echelon becomes less hyperbolic with each spin. Concepts like 'consistency' and 'quality' are relative, but a new album from Robyn Hitchcock is always good for a grand reminder of what is truly 'great,'and SHUFFLEMANIA! is no exception." - POPMATTERS (8/10)

"It's usually advisable to ride along with this great British (albeit Nashville-dwelling) eccentric's flights of surrealism, as they often poignantly clarify more about reality than the most furrow-browed musings of others...From heavy skiffle to serpent gods to ponderings on Pacino, noir and mortality, this charms and challenges." - RECORD COLLECTOR (****)

"10 short, snappy songs...its colourful patchwork exterior clothes some of Hitchcock's finest recent songs." - UNCUT (8/10)
