Why I’m Falling for Robyn Hitchcock...

Robyn Hitchcock might not be on your musical radar right now but just a cursory glance at his CV and a quick listen to a couple of tracks and you'll see what you're missing. One of the founding fathers of the post punk movement through his work as one of The Soft Boys he’s since gone on to produce well over a dozen other fine albums bearing influences that range from Dylan and Lennon to Barrett and Buck (Peter that is). I’m only just starting to explore his work, but this track with The Venus 3 is rapidly becoming a favourite. See what you think and if you like what you hear (trust me on this one) get ye along to The Academy in Birmingham on Sunday 18th April when you’ve got a rare chance to see the great man himself up close and personal.
