Robyn Hitchcock's Colossal Mutations

Mark Dery, International Musician & Recording World, July 1986

WHAT DO you get when you cross nursery crimes, rump-bumping beats, hooky melodies that are bittersweet as a bite of watermelon pickle, and batty lyrics like "sometimes I wish I was a pretty girl/so I could rape myself in the shower"?

Total word count of piece: 708
