Format: DVD
This is priceless footage - Robyn was never wappier nor more 'out there' than on this outing. The live album of the same name covers much the same area, but this has one or two extra videos (e.g. Man With The Lightbulb Head, I Often Dream Of Trains) interspersed among this concert footage from the Marquee gig c.1985.
The concert footage must be close to unique, in that keyboard player Roger Jackson wasn't with the band all that long, and his contribution (especially to "The Fly") was quite considerable. The band are really tight, and Robyn still inhabits his own plane. It's a shame some of his between-songs interstellar rambles weren't recorded.
It's all extremely good, but the irreplaceable nature of the footage is let down by the poor quality of the DVD - which looks for all the world like a straight DVD rendition of a video recorded 15 years ago (which indeed it was). It's sad that there wasn't a better quality first generation source to go to press from.
If you know Robyn Hitchcock's repertoire but unaccountably have never come across this little gem, I'd recommend it. If you've seen it on VHS, you're not going to see anything much you haven't already seen, although at least being on DVD it's unlikely to degrade any more than it has now.

Robyn Hitchcock has greatly broadened his songwriting palette since this album was recorded, and so while it can't be called representative, it's essential and compelling listening; it's an album I've listened to for years (five years? six years?) and it still feels fresh and energetic. Hitchcock has an extraordinary ability to reinterpret and reshape his own songs, and on this album his voice has a harsh, cynical, and menacing quality; his guitar playing too is extraordinary--a bailiff hammering on the door, calling to repossess a missing melody--and these give spine to songs which might otherwise seem dreamlike and disengaged. 'Heaven', which elsewhere he's done in a haunting hypnotising acoustic version, here is full of energy, each phrase following impatiently on the heels of the last; southern England will never seem the same once you've heard 'Acid Bird'. Those wheat fields are full of vipers.

I first heard this album when I was a skinny young lad at college (I am now fat, bald and 48!)

From the opening bars, I knew that this album was something seriously special. It's beautiful, left-field, a little bit crazy but above all, a joyful listening experience from beginning to end.

The Egyptians are tight, Robyn's vocals are fabulous and the songwriting reaches echelons which many artistes can only seek to aspire to.

Re-visiting this album now, it stills holds the same magic for me.

A gem!

This is great, it contains "I Often Dream of Trains" one of the best songs ever, not least because of the cunning way in which it manages to equate reading and basingstoke with heaven. If you can though, try and get hold of the song "Trams" beautiful -- that guy certainly had a thing about public transport!
