Robyn Hitchcock and his friends play a selection of his own and other insect-related songs with added sound effects, including clicks, rubbings and hisses. Plus the premiere of Mandible Raga, a devouring instrumental, and the Abdomen Suite, a mating drone. Songs include 'Madonna Of The Wasps', 'Insect Mother', 'Antwoman', 'Red Locust Frenzy', and a cover Wire's classic 'I Am The Fly'.
Followed by The Bee Hive Ball at The Front Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall, 10.30pm-midnight.
Robyn Hitchcock's launch night spills out into The Front Room for an extended DJ set and party. Think La Cucaracha meets Maggot from Goldy Looking Chain. Strict dress code: masks, wings and antennae
