(May 11, 2013): Robyn Hitchcock & the Venus 3 – N.Y. Doll

From the 2006 album, Olé! Tarantula.  Having been an avid follower of the Soft Boys from the beginning, I have picked up everything Robyn Hitchcock has done since.  Hitchcock got together with the Venus 3 (Peter Buck of R.E.M., Scott McCaughey of Young Fresh Fellows, and Bill Rieflin of Ministry) initially as an impromptu project, which has led to two further releases (2009 and 2010).  They are joined here by two former Soft Boys, Morris Windsor and Kimberley Rew.  This song is a tribute to Arthur “Killer” Kane, the bassist for the New York Dolls who died in 2004.
