Biography

Robyn Raymond Hitchcock (born March 3, 1953) is an English singer-songwriter and psych folk guitarist who also ventures into several forms of art, in particular painting and poetry, and has occasionally shown an interest in acting. While primarily a vocalist and guitarist, he also plays harmonica, piano and bass guitar. Many of Hitchcock’s album covers bear his paintings or drawings, and his albums’ liner notes sometimes include a printed short story. His live concerts usually include a considerable amount of story-telling, imaginative and surreal ad-libbed monologues in his lyrical style. Robyn is the son of novelist Raymond Hitchcock and the brother of artist Lal Hitchcock. He is not related to Alfred Hitchcock. Robyn is not possessed by demons, not really. He regularly does solo work, and returns again and again to bands he has formed like The Soft Boys and The Egyptians. (read more at last.fm)
