Black Snake Diamond Role – Robyn Hitchcock (#198)

Black Snake Diamond Role - Robyn HitchcockBlack Snake Diamond Role – Robyn Hitchcock

I’m not sure what to make of Robyn Hitchcock. I mean I should like him. Eclectic lyrics with humour, songs with silly titles and Englishness. I guess he just tries too hard.

Black Snake contains my favourite all time song containing the best lyric ever written for a song: Brenda’s Iron Sledge. (Please don’t call me Reg, It’s not my name). It’s very Half Man Half Biscuit, but not. It’s quite Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, but not. It’s the Kinks in their most psychedelic, but not. I can’t place it. Again, there are a few Hitchcock albums in this project coming from the downloading of back catalogues.

I guess you have to be there. But to illustrate I’m posting two video examples of Hitchcock’s work. Let me know what you think.
