A Mandrake root writhing under a full moon in a sensual way

A reference to Capricorns

We can also write a Nick Cave song, a Mountain Goats Song, or a Tom Waits Song

Robyn Hitchcock Wants To Go Backwards

Posted Posted in music

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?
