Robyn Hitchcock has been prolific in recent years, releasing a slew of singer-songwriter records with the Venus 3, but 'The Man Upstairs' takes on a different tack, billed by Hitchcock and collaborator/producer Joe Boyd as an intimate and varied performance: some of these songs are rock standards reworked, others are obscure favourites Hitchcock has covered, and there are a couple of his own originals in the mix, too. The record took a week to record; it's Hitchcock's sparsest and quickest work in a while, backed only with flourishes of cello, piano and additional vocals.
