Here comes Robyn Hitchcock
I love it when a plan comes together: A week after writing about Robyn Hitchcock for the first time on Stuck in the 80s, the "Man with the Lightbulb Head" has announced a short slate of dates in the U.S. this summer.
Hitchcock's tour begins July 9 in Northampton, Mass., and rolls through New York and Pennsylvania the rest of the month, according to Pollstar.com. Will the tour grow to other cities in the U.S.? When it comes to predicting Hitchcock's next move, your guess is as good as mine.
But here's a nugget of good news for everyone: A new Robyn Hitchcock box set is on its way. "Luminous Groove" will feature his mid-80s work with The Egyptians, including the albums "Fegmania!" and "Element of Light." Two additional discs of previously unreleased studio and live material will round it, according to CMJ.com.
And get this: "Luminous Groove" also will be made available as an eight-LP vinyl set. Time to scan garage sales for that beloved turntable, people!
