robyn hitchcock or morrissey?
as some of you know, i’m a big fan of robyn hitchcock. the wife and i have seen him a half dozen times over the decades. but sadly for me, his last 2 los angeles shows coincided EXACTLY with artichoke shows, so i couldn’t see him. for example, 2 saturdays ago, artichoke was playing at mr. t’s bowl when he was at largo. then i caught some of his live set on kcrw the subsequent wednesday morning. an hour later, chris called me and said “i just met robyn hitchcock!” so i raced over to where he was (in the valley for some reason?) with a copy of “26 animals” in my hand. chris and i shambled up to robyn’s lunch table, confessed our serious fanhood, and sheepishly gave the nice man a cd. out on the street aftewards, 2 women who had witnessed our behavior asked “who was that? was that morrissey?”
