Robyn Rowan Hitchcock (born 3 March 1953) is an English singer-songwriter and guitarist. While primarily a vocalist and guitarist, he also plays harmonica, piano and bass guitar.
Coming to prominence in the late 1970s with The Soft Boys, Hitchcock afterward launched a prolific solo career. Hitchcock's musical and lyrical styles have been influenced by his appreciation of Bob Dylan, John Lennon and Syd Barrett. Hitchcock's lyrics are an essential component of his work and tend to include surrealism, comedic songs, characterisations of English eccentrics and melancholy depictions of everyday life. His themes include what many psychologists view as the roots of modern neurosis — namely, death, sex and eating. Recognising this theme, he released an EP in 2007 called "Sex, Food, Death and Tarantulas".
Hitchcock's mainstream success has been limited, but he has a loyal cult following, and has often earned strong critical reviews.Content: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robyn_Hitchcock
