Robyn Hitchcock
Robyn Hitchcock - 1   Robyn Hitchcock - RH1 An acclaimed guitarist and singer-songwriter, Robyn Hitchcock came to prominence in the 1970s with his group The Soft Boys. Following the band’s breakup in 1980, his first solo album, Black Snake Dîamond Röle, was released on the Armageddon label in 1981. With a sound likened to Bob Dylan and John Lennon – with added surreal and psychedelic touches – Robyn went on to release a series of albums throughout the 80s and 90s, both on his own and with new band The Egyptians. Now established as one of the UK’s most respected musicians, more recent projects have included the 2006 release Olé! Tarantula, recorded with singer Scott McCaughey and R.E.M members Peter Buck and Bill Rieflin. Such are Robyn’s achievements, he was the subject of a 2007 documentary film, ‘Robyn Hitchcock: Sex, Food, Death and Insects’, which featured him collaborating with the likes of Nick Lowe, John Paul Jones and Gillian Welch. Like many of the Art in a Box participants, Robyn also creates visual art, producing surreal paintings and cartoon-strips.
