Robyn Hitchcock “Madonna Of The Wasps” ’89

As the 80s petered out, some traditions on the Late Night set had yet to fall by the wayside. To wit: the enforced appearance of Paul Shaeffer and The World’s Most Dangerous Band as backing players to every musical act to appear on the show. Today the once-reliable tradition has kind of faded away- the guest musicians perform by themselves often enough these days – but this song by the tremendous Mr. Hitchcock serves to demonstrate how aggressive Paul once was in chasing those heightened AFTRA scale payments. And what a great song.
