Robyn Hitchcock & the Venus 3
Almost hidden among the wealth of gigs on offer at Celtic Connections are some true superstars. Of course there’s Robyn Hitchcock, ex-Soft Boys and The Egyptians. Then we come to his backing band, featuring Bill Rieflin of Ministry and Revolting Cocks who now spends his time drumming for REM, the REM connection continues with Peter Buck on guitar and bassist Scott McCaughey, yet another associate of the Athens trio. So all in all a great frontman backed by one of the most impressive line-ups around.
