Robyn Hitchcock at the Three Kings
Here are two photographs I took of Robyn performing at a benefit for Medecins Sans Frontieres at the Three Kings in Clerkenwell. It was touch and go whether I would be well enough to attend - My rib had bee pretty painful all week. Fortunately I was. Robyn's MSF benefits are particularly entertaining as the sets consist entirely of covers. Last year it was the White Album, a year before it was naff 70s hits (nobody does Funkytown better than Robyn!). This year he covered Piper at the Gates of Dawn and threw in a selection of Syd Barrett covers for good measure.
It was paricularly nice to meet for the first time a number of people I had gotten to know through the Vegetable Friends Yahoo group, including Tulloch, Grimble and Percy the Ratcatcher.
