Hitchcock Documentary debuts on Sundance Channel in March
NEW YORK, Jan. 18 -- Robyn Hitchcock: Sex, Food, Death ... and Insects, a Sundance Channel original production, debuts on Tuesday, March 27, 2007 at 10:00 pm et/pt. Directed by John Edginton (The Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett Story), the hour-long documentary follows British singer/songwriter Hitchcock and band The Venus 3, featuring Peter Buck (R.E.M.), Bill Rieflin (Ministry, REM), and Scott McCaughey (Minus 5, REM, The Young Fresh Fellows), as they spend a week in July of 2006 recording an album of new material at Hitchcock's house in West London. The film captures Hitchcock at work as he adds to his stockpile of wonderfully wry and twisted rock songs. The musical equivalent of black comedy, Hitchcock's songs express a fundamentally dark worldview, energized by droll wit, surreal imagery and a dynamite vocabulary

Robyn and the boys in Nottingham
What a fantabulously wonderful night last night, even my husband declared it's one of the best gigs he's been to. It was a bit short as this venue has a strict 10pm curfew as it becomes a nightclub and people were already queuing outside to come in, so they did all the encores in one sitting to save from wasting time in leaving the stage etc. and there were some huddled discussions about what they could fit in with Bill who appeared to be the only one wearing a watch and was giving them sound checks.
