Floyd producer Joe Boyd, Robyn Hitchcock on tour

Posted August 27, 2010 by Floydian Slip

Early Pink Floyd producer Joe Boyd and musician Robyn Hitchcock are touring the western United States.

Calling it the “Chinese White Bicycles” tour, Boyd talks and reads from his book, “White Bicycles,” while Hitchcock provides musical interludes. (See “Early Pink Floyd producer writes book.”)

“We have taken this double-act to the Green Man and SXSW festivals and it seems to have gone down OK,” Boyd writes, “so we’re taking it on the road!”

Boyd produced Pink Floyd’s first single, “Arnold Layne,” and has worked with many other bands, including Fairport Convention, Nick Drake, Bob Dylan, REM and others.
