Robyn Hitchcock talks 'Oslo'

Robyn Hitchcock and his new band, The Venus 3, have a new record out Tuesday, and Yep Roc has a short interview clip of Hitchcock talking about the inspiration behind Goodnight Oslo, his work with Jonathan Demme's Rachel Getting Married and what it means to "celebrate the ghosts of the smoke age."

Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey & Bill Rieflin have led Hitchcock on a new creative surge, starting with the group's first record, 2006's Olé Tarantula, an outstanding album that I had as No. 6 for the year.
