Robyn Hitchcock / The Deaf Institute, Manchester / Thu 24 Oct
Were delighted to working with Robyn Hitchcock for the first time!
Robyn Hitchcock is one of Englands most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musicians musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rocks father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration).
Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as well as starred in Storefront Hitchcock an in-concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme.
Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as paintings you can listen to. His most recent album is self-titled and marks his 21st release as a solo artist. The album, released in 2017, was produced by Brendan Benson (The Raconteurs). Hitchcock describes it as a ecstatic work of negativity with nary a dreary groove.
It has received rave reviews from UNCUT, Rolling Stone, Paste, Tidal and more.
A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary imaginings Rolling Stone
