Robyn Hitchcock

There is nothing to quite match the elation of feeling well again after a brief spell under the weather. It's a glorious sensation, enhanced still further by a new release from one of my all-time musical heroes, Robyn Hitchcock, with a tune right out of his top drawer.

'Rock and Roll is an old man’s game now, so I’m staying in it.'

The first glimpse of 'Be Still' came courtesy of an informal pub rehearsal video that appeared online towards the end of 2012 and featured Terry Edwards, Green Gartside from Scritti Politti and Bedders from Madness amongst others. Here though, is the finished article and the first taster of 'Love From London', Robyn's new album, due on March 3rd, which also happens to be his 60th birthday.

Very good. As I've said before, I must explore his music more. He's become a bit of a national treasure.
