In 1990, Robyn Hitchcock released his first purely solo album since 1984’s I Often Dream of Trains. The album was called Eye, and as befitting the bandless nature of the venture, it was released on Twin/Tone rather than A&M.
Not that the world necessarily needed to have that kind of distinction between Robyn Hitchcock with or without The Egyptians, but I think that A&M were still holding out the hope that his electric music would strike some kind of chord with the general public.
