Sleepy -- yes. Tipitina's, 1990 (so long ago!). It was horribly hot, but I refused to budge from front row, stage right. By the end of the night, I'd lost my voice from screaming (girls are allowed to scream). Maybe it's the tiniest bit pathetic that I consider that night one of the best nights of my life, but I think anyone who's seen him would understand.

Well, I just want to thank everyone for making me feel so welcome. Hey, Voltaic, I have a pair of Polk audio's , too. Yes, they do have a sweet sound. I like listening to Robyn with headphones on. I just close my eyes and drift away. On a side note, I got the tab for 'If you were a Priest' a few days ago. It is supposed to be played with a G#addD. Well, the author didn't know how to do it and neither do I. I think that just a G# works fine. If anyone happens by with more skilled fingers than myself, a tip would be greatly appreciated.

New to this site and new online, but my love for Robyn H. is long- standing...sleepy, what kind of people do you know? Here in the backwoods, almost no one even knows who RH is, much less knows the man himself. And _______/ Voltaic/V: No RH collection is complete without a 1986 limited- edition picture disc (photo from Groovy Decay, as I recall -- RH holding a bunch of radishes) called "Exploding in Silence". Look for it. Have seen RH only once, in New Orleans years ago (he rarely gets this far south), but it was one of the most memorable occasions of my life.

I did a double take, and said to my wife, "that's robyn hitchc--k!" she told me I was crazy, but I kept stealing glances over at you and knew it was you. after we sat down in the theatre, I kept saying, "I know that was robyn hitchc--k," so my wife said, "well, go out and find out for yourself - ask him!" gathering my courage, I walked back out to the concession area, but alas, you were gone. I looked for you after the movie ended, but did not see you. robyn, was it really you?? by the way - I absolutely love "moss elixir." I just wish I could get my hands on "mossy liquor" too.

Songs: some song about Gene Hackman/lysander/ serpent at the gates of wisdom/my wife and my dead wife/jewels for sofia (?)/elizabeth jade (?)/madonna of the wasps/i'm only you/devil's radio/the lizard/i am not me/i often dream of trains/(robyn checked his watch and then went off to change his shirt)/antwoman song/arnold layne. excellent backing from tim on guitar and banana and singing, & some other guy on sax on a few of the songs. distracting noises from babies and the womad drummers during the quieter ones.

Pungo,so good to hear from you. I am glad you are silly. By the way, this is a true story: when someone asks me at work how I am doing, I often tell them the truth, that I am "Grooving on An Inner Plane..." The term really applies to that mood where you aren't manically happy, nor down and own. You simply are, uh, grooving, on an inner plane, see? Anybody else have RH songs that illustrate or describe their moods?

Antwoman has notified us that Robyn has hired a boat for a date in the near future. he will perform on the vessel whilst it makes it way 'round what is most probably some quite english looking-smelling-tasting waters (plenty of cold squishy things wriggling beneath the surface, to look at through glass, er, bottoms....tho this last is sadly not included in the ship he will captain :( -- Anty asked us to pass along the notice, since she's having trouble with that infernal email babel machine lo these many nights.......

Those concept video's on the Gotta Let this Hen Out video are what "Fegmania" the album refers to in conjunction with Tony Moon--they are actually short films, 16 mm by the looks of them. There is also a hilarious outside scene of Robyn doing some kind of "ritual" with two vegetables in front of the welfare office (or england's equivelant) while an elderly woman walks by, stops, and gazes up at this strange man with the squash. She look up at him, then ahead, then glances in the general direction of the camera, and walks on, seamingly baffled. If I'd been up on that ledge doing what Robyn is doing and had gotten that response, I would not have been able to keep from laughing. It's very funny.

DATE: Fri Jul 18 09:16:01 PDT 1997
Pungo, there is a pretty good video called "Gotta Let This Hen Out." It's over ten years old now, a live recording of the Egyptians at the Marquee in London. There are included videos for "Man with the Lightbulb Head," "I Often Dream of Trains," etc. They are admittedly primitive, production-wise, but are charming and funny. The live stuff is very good though Robyn was not in the most talkative mood, so no wonderful storytelling like we've all grown to love. Antwoman may be the best source for finding out if the video is still sold. I have it and I have cherished it since mail ordering it about 7 years ago. The video packaging matches that of the original lp and cd of the same name.

Pungo: that's a great question. I've never seen one, though in all honesty, I've never looked for a Robyn video. If someone out there has indeed heard of such a thing, please respond! And, yes, one can't walk down the street without accidently endorsing the product of a heartless conglomerate, so fretting about what's "corporate" is a waste of one's energy.

Thanks all for the news of London's gigs and the lyrics to I Saw Nick was one of Robyn's best from Marin County's Sweet--ter gig last month. Tim's Shallow End also a stand out. Cruised to the Homer site and was curious if anyone else feels Tim K is playing up the Robyn influence a bit too much: he is pictured holding a head of cabbage... now who else would have done that, perhaps, in his younger days, hmmmm?
