this is horrible but for the longest time every time I see Robyn Hitchcock's name my first thought is of the 90's and current swedish pop star Robyn. One day I'll get around to checking that dude out.

I never got into dude either and we are of an age, narlus. I don't know who the fuck Robyn is though. Maybe I feel old too.

Kind of. It's 10 tracks, with a fairly minimal sound - basically, no Venus 3 and all the fresher for it. There's quite a lot of cello, which is cool.

There is a Norwegian-language version of 'Goodnight Oslo' and a (brilliant) reworking of Raining Twilight Coast, and the other tracks are all new material. It's classic Robyn really - catchy songs with sweet melodies, cool imagery and deceptively detailed and complex little bridges and derails tucked away inside them. I think it's better than naything he's done post Jewels For Sophia.

Yo, I would hereby like to rep for both Robyn Hitchcock and just plain Robyn. They are both awesome.

My favorite Robyn Hitchcock jam: Glass Hotel (from his solo album Eye, though this is a live version)

And a pretty great live tune by Robyn: Be Mine (this is from her self-titled album, but it's a dance-pop tune on there. This version is extremely minimal and WILL DESTROY YOU, so be forewarned)

I wish Robyn Hitchcock would come back here...did anybody see his tour where he performed vintage Joe Boyd-produced 60s/70s jams?  I really wanted to go to that, but couldn't make it down to Chicago. 

The only upcoming gig I'm stoked about is John Maus.  Any of you guys keen on him?  He used to be in Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti but his solo stuff is a little more keyboard-oriented.  He's a Minnesota native as well, and seems to still be living in Austin, MN (population 2000 or something, in the middle of nowhere).

I've tried a couple times to get into Robyn Hitchcock. Bought the deluxe reissue of Underwater Moonlight, always keep my eyes open for Hitchcock vinyl, even bought that first retrospective box set. It's just not happening the way I hoped. It doesn't stick to me.

to get into someone I would just head to youtube or grooveshark or something instead of buying a bunch of deluxe box set stuff unless it was in a dollar bin. It sucks spending cash on something you end up not being enthusiastic about.

Yeah Davy, if Underwater Moonlight doesn't do it for you, you might be incapable of Robyn Hitchcock appreciation. 

Is Hitchcock vinyl still fairly cheap?  Seems like I have pretty much a complete collection of 80s LPs that I got for $3-5 a piece.

On the contrary, box sets are a great way to get into new bands. In a lot of cases, you're getting the best dose they can throw at you--essays, commentary, artwork, classic songs, maybe some video--and if you don't end up liking it, then you can sell it on the secondhand market for basically what you paid for it. This is especially true if you bought it secondhand in the first place.

I don't mean to say I don't like his music. I like Underwater Moonlight a decent amount and still play it occasionally. I also quite like Eye and Black Snake Diamond Role and Element of Light...but I don't love any of it, really, and that's kinda what I was hoping for.

A box set would be the easiest way to completely overwhelm me and make it hard for me to really have an entry point. I've even had friends make long best-of mixes and it's been almost too challenging for me to listen to until I've internalized a couple of songs, and almost impossible for me to really love until the artist or songs somehow becomes attached to something meaningful to me.

okay it's decision time: 2 free shows tonight, should I go see (1) very hip thing with squarepusher glasser and jamie xx or (2) something called "performance for four microwaves"

I kind of know which way I'm leaning here though

I'd go see the microwaves, for sure.

Also, it's kind of exciting to see microwaves transform back into 'brown goods' after all these years. (This is in reference to a chapter called 'White Goods, Brown Goods' in Cynthia Cockburn's and Susan Omrod's seminal history of how gender and technology shaped each other in the making of the microwave oven, in which they show that microwaves were originally marketed as technologically exciting gadgets for men and sold among music systems and TVs before being reframed as household technologies, marketed at female customers and families and sold among fridges and washing machines. )

interesting. I think of microwaves almost more as a "gadget" these days than as a straight kitchen appliance... And I admit that I shudder a little to think of the "Performance for XBox, TV, Mini-fridge, and Microwave" currently taking place in dorm rooms across the country...

anyway looks like I'm called in to work tonight and can't see either.
