Peter Plays on New Robyn Hitchcock
Also, be sure to be one of the first 500 to purchase the new Robyn Hitchcock record, OlÃ©! Tarantula, which is available for Pre-Order Now from the Yep Roc Web Shop. The first 500 Orders Get an Exclusive Bonus Disc featuring live versions of “A Man’s Gotta Know His Limitations,” “Briggs” and “Underground Sun,” plus a previously unreleased track, “Embryo Twirl.”
Recorded in Seattle in September 2005 and March 2006, OlÃ©! Tarantula finds Hitchcock joined throughout by the Venus 3–Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey and Bill Rieflin–old friends who he notes are also “3/4ths of the Minus 5 and half of R.E.M.”
“We sound like a smart garage band, to my ears, when we play live. The record is a little more tidy, but they still rock, and rock me along with them. This is the rockingest record I’ve made in years,” he says.
