Robyn Hitchcock, Fegmania!
2008 | Label: Yep Roc Records / Redeye

Five years after the demise of the Soft Boys, Robyn Hitchcock reformed the band as the Egyptians, substituting Roger Jackson's plinking keyboards for Kimberley Rew's stinging guitar. The result, after years of searching, was an album that established the template for Hitchcock's solo career. Fusing Syd Barrett and John Lennon, Hitchcock's greatest influences, with the Byrds'jangling guitars and layered harmonies (demonstrated by the bonus-track cover of “The Bells of Rhymney”), the songs on… read more »

Why we love Robyn

rorymccloskey

This is why we love Robyn Hitchcock. Great singalong melodies married to bizarre twisted lyrics. This album is a fun slice of my past come to life. A broad smile broke over my face when i saw it for download. Thanks.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Robyn Hitchcock

By Victoria Segal, Contributor

Robyn Hitchcock first emerged as the singer with The Soft Boys, Cambridge misfits whose against-nature fusion of punk, prog and psychedelia peaked with 1980 masterpiece Underwater Moonlight, an album that would later burrow into the brains of US heroes The Replacements and REM. As a solo artist (or with backing bands The Egyptians and The Venus 3), he continued to explore the clammy absurdities and cosmic mysteries of human existence with a slew of beguiling… more »

Y Robyn Hitchcock Matters

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

I don't know if the Y in Robyn Hitchcock's name was there on his birth certificate, but I can't imagine it spelled "Robin." That Y is the same slightly odd Y that's present in the Byrds, in Syd Barrett and in Bob Dylan - arguably the three biggest historical presences behind his music. He's got an enormous, three-decade-long discography, but the early solo albums that have just come to eMusic include some of the sweetest… more »

The 13 Greatest Ghost Songs of All Time

By Mike McGonigal, Contributor

It's Halloween, which is the best holiday out of all the holidays that don't involve presents. On Halloween, everyone pretends to be afraid of ghosts, which are generally thought to be the spirits of dead people who, for some reason or another, are caught in between worlds. I'm not sure I believe in ghosts. It's probably all the Scooby Doo episodes I watched as a kid; ghosts were never real, but rather just Old Mr. Thompson… more »

They Say All Music Guide

After the stripped-back collection I Often Dream of Trains, Robyn Hitchcock slowly formed a backing band called the Egyptians with ex-Soft Boys Andy Metcalfe and Morris Windsor, and keyboardist Roger Jackson over the course of the next year. Fegmania!, the Egyptians’ first album, was a distinct departure from both the Soft Boys and Hitchcock’s previous solo work, featuring layered, intertwining guitars and keyboards that created lush and thick sonic textures. Even with the more detailed arrangements, the songs remained twitchy and off-kilter, with melodies that usually went in willfully unpredictable directions, yet remained catchy all the while. Fegmania! was Hitchcock’s most consistent work to date, featuring such highlights as the Eastern-tinged “Egyptian Cream,” and the creepy “My Wife & My Dead Wife,” and the relatively straightforward “The Man with the Lightbulb Head.” [In 2008 Yep Roc released a new version of Fegmania that included the original album re-mastered, eight bonus cuts (three of which were previously unavailable) and expanded packaging.] – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
