    Robyn Hitchcock gave the usual mirth-evoking, narratively ad-libbed musical performance of impeccable quality (tonight's foil was the American Revolutionary War hero Casimir Pulaski, I suspect engendered by an Interstate 65 memorial highway sign in Northwest Indiana on the way to Chicago from points south) with guest Emma Swift, a velvet-voiced Ozzie, with whom he has been smitten^H^H^H duetting on- and off-record for over a year now. My film record of this runs a bit over an hour, my no means capturing all of it. Emma makes her guest appearance in the 52nd minute. After the ceremonial encore of Lou Reed's "Pale Blue Eyes" by the three of them (Yvette the Beret Wearer, merch manager, lent it a credible alto), Robyn was signing things (as opposed to singing things!) and being generally approachable, unlike at his early winter visit to Chicago's Old Town School of Music, where ushers by the way are Alice-in-Wonderland-grade suppressive about taking pix, recording voice, etcetera (not so at the laissez-faire S.P.A.C.E.). When it was my turn, I said to him, "Mr. Hitchcock, I was too stupid to bring my copy of your [old guitar-song masterpiece] _I Often Dream of Trains_ to sign, a copy that I had since college," and he took the time to look at me really hard. For what it's worth.

        Sawyer Sessions brings you Robyn Hitchcock, playing three exclusive tracks from his upcoming record The Man Upstairs. Filmed on location in downtown Hillsborough at award-winning restaurant http://panciuto.com/. Sawyer Sessions brings you soul-stirring live performances from artists of every genre, all set in a historic Southern town with a story all of its own. New episodes will be brought to you from Hillsborough, NC the second Thursday of every month. To keep up with the newest Sawyer Sessions, subscribe to our YouTube channel or sign up for our email list. You can also find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram @sawyersessions. The music you hear and enjoy is powered by our neighbors at Mystery Brewing, who create a cornucopia of small-batch, rustic ales. Stop by its excellent establishment in Hillsborough for a drink, or at select retail locations. The Man Upstairs sees Hitchcock uniting with legendary producer Joe Boyd (Nick Drake, Fairport Convention) for one of the most unique recordings of his already quite idiosyncratic career. Rather than simply record a new selection of songs, Boyd suggested what he called 'a Judy Collins album' such as Elektra would have released in 1967 -- part well-known favorites, part personal discoveries, and part originals. The multi-tiered approach offered Hitchcock the rare opportunity to record as a performer, not "just another singer-songwriter laying their freshest eggs." Thus, modern standards like Roxy Music's "To Turn You On," The Doors' "The Crystal Ship," and The Psychedelic Furs' "The Ghost In You" are interlaced with lesser-known gems from such pals as Grant-Lee Phillips ("Don't Look Down") and I Was A King ("Ferries"), the latter featuring harmony vocals and guitar from the Norwegian indiepop combo's own Anne Lise Frøkedal. Meanwhile, new Hitchcock originals like "Trouble In Your Blood" and "Comme Toujours" stand among his most fragile and heartfelt, his stark vocal and guitar cast by Boyd against simple, autumnal backing from longtime collaborators Jenny Adejayan (cello), Charlie Francis (piano), and the aforementioned Frøkedal (harmonies).

                  Another Hitchcock classic ruined ! I often dream of trains when I'm alone I ride on them into another zone I dream of them constantly Heading for paradise Or Basingstoke Or Reading I often dream of trains when I'm awake They ride along beside a frozen lake And there in the buffet car I wait for eternity Or Basingstoke Or Reading I often dream of trains till it gets light [- From: http://www.elyrics.net -] The summer turns to winter overnight The leaves fall so suddenly The sun sets at four o'clock Exactly what I'm dreading I often dream of trains when I'm with you I wonder if you dream about them too Maybe we'll meet one night Out in the corridor I'm waiting for You baby Baby Baby Baby Baby

                    Great song by Hitchcock,ruined by me. Cross-legged on the bed she gazed across the town her shadow climbed the wall until the sun went down she bought a china pug it lay there on the bed and in the paper bag she could just see its head She was vibrating She was vibrating She was vibrating and in an adoring pose he shriveled up and died until his bones were stems upon the grass they dried and made an alphabet of white upon the green and it was beautiful and some would say obscene she was vibrating she was vibrating she was vibrating and in the demon's hat discolored flowers grew and they had fleshy stems and fleshy petals too to slither is divine to multifoliate she just lost her watch she couldn't concentrate she was vibrating she was vibrating she was vibrating she was vibrating she was vibrating she was vibrating

                      Robyn Hitchcock and Joe Boyd. Joe Boyd is a record producer (Nick Drake, REM, Pink Floyd, Toumani Diabate among many) and author of White Bicycles: Music In the 1960s. Tonight he joins with singer Robyn Hitchcock (subject of Jonathan Demme's film "Storefront Hitchcock") for a 15-minute slice of the acclaimed show they have performed across the US and the UK. Joe tells stories from the 1960s and Robyn (who bought so many of the records Joe produced in the 1960s that "he is my Frankenstein and I am his monster") sings the appropriate songs. @RobynHitchcock
