Robyn Hitchcock... Gigography

Robyn Hitchcock w/ Paul Noble
Concert appearance: Sat., 15 May 2004

Conway Hall
London, England UK
benefit for Resonance FM

Set list:

Trams of Old London acoustic
Fifty Two Stations
Meet Me In the Morning (Bob Dylan) w/ Paul Noble on bass
Only the Stones Remain
Stayin' Alive (Bee Gees) medley
Listening To the Higsons
W Sucks (But Rumseld Is the Anti-Christ)

An odd affair... Robyn was on for half an hour, following a modern jazz pianist and a pensioners' rights activist. During the first song he was greeted by a beer can thrown from the balcony, which seemed to unsettle him slightly for a couple of minutes, unsurprisingly. Here's the set list:

Robyn with acoustic:

Trams Of Old London
52 Stations

Then the following with Paul Noble on bass:

Meet Me In The Morning
Only The Stones Remain (fantastic harmonica part!)
Stayin' Alive/Listening To The Higsons medley
Public Service Announcement ("Rumsfeld is the Antichrist"... wish I could remember more of the lyrics)

It was a strange atmosphere: probably 90% (95%?) of the audience didn't seem to know who he was and whilst he got a good reception (apart from the beer can), it was very different from seeing him at one of his 'own' gigs. Good to have him back though!
