Let’s Write A Robyn Hitchcock Song!
Hoods & Masks
A jangly, circular guitar riff that sounds like bells
A reverse pedal
Plants that become people, people that become plants
Cockney rhyming slang
A Mandrake root writhing under a full moon in a sensual way
People named Bruce or Kevin
A reference to Capricorns
Something belonging to Syd Barrett
We can also write a Nick Cave song, a Mountain Goats Song, or a Tom Waits Song…
OK, I like to stop in to the Museum of Robyn Hitchcock from time to time, and there’s always interesting stuff going on. Last time I was there, they had a flyer with a premade font, and my mind was kind of blown- the font was based on Robyn’s handwriting off the back of record albums, and it is called Fegmania! and you can get it here. But when an artist, or someone representing an artist, can find a font based on their handwriting to use on the internet- I don’t know, doesn’t it make you feel like your head is going back into your navel and you’re being reborn?
