Moss Elixir is the eleventh studio album by Robyn Hitchcock, released in 1996, containing twelve original compositions, predominantly acoustic, and released by Warner Music. Following the traumatic loss of his father, Hitchcock had recorded little in the preceding five years. When he re-emerged, he had dispensed with old group The Egyptians and begun working here with new musicians, including Deni Bonet, a violinist with whom Hitchcock would collaborate several times in the years following. Moss Elixir came packaged in green and gold, continuing the theme of his earlier solo acoustic albums, I Often Dream of Trains and Eye. The CD insert includes a short story: a vaguely autobiographical, surrealist account of Hitchcock in the afterlife, which weaves several images and titles from the album's contents into its storyline, including the elixir of the album's title. The name of the track "De Chirico Street" refers to metaphysical painter Giorgio de Chirico.more »
