Who’s Got The Cuckoo, WXDU’s weekly garage rock show, invites you to a free garage rock “Cuckoo Mash” costume and dance party at the Duke Coffeehouse, Saturday October 30th.

Picture yourself in a boat on a river that leads from 1967's jolly wonderland of English Psychedelia right up to the paisley lollipop of 1985's "25 O'Clock" by the Dukes of Stratosphear. I will play an upsy-daisy assortment of classic English 60s psych that directly influenced the Dukes of Stratosphear (XTC's secret side-project), and a healthy bit of the Dukes as well!
And if that ain't enough, continue further up selfsame river to 2 hours of Robby's favourite XTC songs on WXDU's "Mystery Show" immediately thereafter.
9pm-Midnight EDT Sunday August 23rd, 2009!

To wit: Grisly Bear, Fleet Foxes, Department of Eagles, Silver Antlers, The Mountain Goats, Donkeys, Gregory + The Hawk. Many bearded men.
I dug these records this last year:
