Music is the antidote
To the world of pain and sorrow
In this small corner of the blogosphere there is a lot of love for former Soft Boy and national treasure Robyn Hitchcock..
I do not have nearly enough of his material.
However I recently picked up a second hand copy of Olé! Tarantula his 16th album from 2006 from Missing Records -a fine companion to the live EP Sex, Food, Death ... and Tarantulas.
It is his first with the Venus 3 - Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey and Bill Rieflin and as per usual it is of an impressively high standard full of great songs with surreal lyrics. Belltown Ramble in particular is absolutely majestic.
His music should be taught in schools.
Oops have to go now - someone has activated The Cheese Alarm.
