Please give generously to the "buy Robyn Hitchcock a new shirt" fund



Here is footage of Robyn and the Venus 3 performing on the title track of their promotional tour for Ole! Tarantula somewhere in the US late last year. It is saddening to note that the shirt Robyn is wearing is exactly the same as the one he wore at the Three Kings AND at Islington.

Poor old Robyn has never had a chart hit here in the UK and only grazed the billboard charts back in the 80s...The royalties are obviously drying up - please give generously so a 50 something musical genius can afford a change of clothes...

Seriously, this is a slight taste of wht he was like on Thursday. There are a few mobile phone clips but they are rather short.

Maybe Elton John will decide to clean out his closet and donate all his glittery clothes to Robyn? I wonder how Robyn would look in some sparkly platform shoes and giant eyeglasses?

A new shirt? New shirt! Or something that sounds sort of like that...

Robyn can accept hand-me-downs from Elton John, as long as Robyn doesn't have to perform "Candle in the Wind" as payment.

Elton Hihn? I hope not ewbl! Robyn is loud in a different way to old Reg! ON the other hand I will post some old 80s footage of Robyn there is on Youtube... his suits and shirt combo is a sight to behold - oh and he was 20 years younger too!


I think Michelle, his partner would yank his nuts to head height if he was on the pull Mullet!

Agreed Steve, no Candle in teh Wind, no crocodile rock, no passenger NO ELTON!!!

his partner, michelle - she is quite right! if the not wife was a star, i would demand that he wear the same shirt...keep the bints at bay.

On the other hand you could put a crocodile clip to his nuts and attach it to a long cable.. one bit of hanky panky and the cable is plugged into the mains..

It's how the not wife keeps me in lne, honest!
