So You Think You're In Love


I was busy working through the vinyl beginning with H as part of my database compilation when I stumbled across a 12 inch single by Robyn Hitchcock and the Egyptians that I'd forgotten that I had.

So You Think You're in Love is a song taken from the 1991 Perspex Island album on Go! Discs and apparently reached number 1 on US Modern Rock Tracks Chart - whatever that is.Oh and if you think that you can hear the dulcet tones of Michael Stype you are quite correct as he and Peter Buck both appear on the record.

It is the only thing that I have by him and the Egyptians in  a physical format with everything else I have featuring the Venus 3.
I'm putting this "find" down as a good omen for when I go to see him for the first time on May Mono. I think that I may have mentioned that before!


  1. I saw him a few years ago. It was a rocking good show!

  2. This song and Balloon Man are probably the closest he ever came to having a hit in this part of the world. The world makes no sense.

  3. I struggle a bit with Robyn Hitchcock and can never really put my finger on why. Loved So You Think You're In Love and his six minute Television but whenever I tuned into the various sessions he did for Andy Kershaw (who loved him) they didn't do much for me. Always mean to revisit him - perhaps I will now
