A new Robyn Hitchcock documentary “Sex, Food, Death and Insects” is to be screened for the first time in the UK next month.
Originally premiered at this year’s South By Southwest film festival, the documentary will be shown on BBC4 on April 27.
The film made by John Edginton, who previously worked on an acclaimed Pink Floyd/ Syd Barrett BBC documetary, goes behind the scenes of Robyn Hitchcock’s recent work with The Venus 3 – his new collaborative project consisting of R.E.M’s Peter Buck, Young Fresh Fellows front man Scott McCaughey and Ministry’s Bill Rieflin.
Featuring recording sessions for their 2006 released album “Ole Tarantula” and live performances, the hour-long film also features appearances from musicians Morris Windsor, Nick Lowe, John Paul Jones, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.
