Over the past three decades, Robyn Hitchcock has amassed an extensive and distinguished body of work that has established him as one of rock music's most respected and beloved iconoclasts. A prolific renegade and visionary cult artist, Hitchcock has released numerous albums with his longstanding outfits The Soft Boys and Robyn Hitchcock & the Egyptians, as well as his own ample solo work of which Propellor Time
(Sartorial Records - Available 3/22) is the very latest.
Recorded at home in London's Tropic of Hounslow over the Summer of 2006 and beyond, Propellor Time
is no single-handed effort: The Venus 3, Hitchcock's backing band for this recording boasts the rhythm section of Scott McCaughey
(Young Fresh Fellows) on bass and Bill Rieflin
on drums (formerly of Ministry and Revolting Cocks). Making a rare appearance as a sideman outside his usual group, R.E.M.'s Peter Buck
(on 12 string and acoustic guitars) completes this esteemed line-up and is co-writer of the album's title track with Hitchcock.
Additionally, a star-studded array of illustrious guest musicians collaborate with Hitchcock on Propellor Time; selected tracks feature contributions from John Paul Jones
(Led Zeppelin/Them Crooked Vultures), Johnny Marr
(The Smiths/Modest Mouse) who co-wrote the track he plays on, "Ordinary Millionaire" with Hitchcock, old pal Nick Lowe
; and former Soft Boy/Egyptian band mate Morris Windsor
among many other notables.
