Robyn Hitchcock is unique by any estimation. It's not just his songwriting, lyrics, world view and effortless charisma... it's also that he's managed to release consistently solid music for decades, up through and beyond 2017's self-titled album. This is wholly anomalous in the industry. I mean, even the Stones crapped out after "Some Girls," and Bowie got kinda sketchy for a while after "Scary Monsters." Hitchcock has known no such hiccups.
He's long been a favorite songwriter of mine, so having him on Car Con Carne is something of a dream come true. If you're new to his music and want recommendations so you can start spiraling down the Hitchcock rabbit hole, email me. I'm only too happy to share playlists and song suggestions.
