[Cone News and Links | How To Add YOUR CONE To The Museum! | The Museum Song!]
Cone Count: 32 Cones, 1 Tomato, 1 RotoMark
Last Update: 4/8/02

Welcome. This site is devoted to displaying and honoring the cone art of Robyn Hitchcock. If you've never heard of Robyn, or are only vaguely familiar with the name, please visit Fegmaniax or The Museum Of Robyn Hitchcock.

In 1997, Robyn decided to take a startlingly different approach to the obligatory merchandize sold at live shows: small orange traffic cones adorned with one-of-a-kind artwork drawn by the man himself. Some were numbered. Some autographed. Some even had a chewy treat glued on top. A few new cones even appeared during the 2001 Soft Boys reunion tour! All in all, they offer a unique glimpse into the visual art and squishy-green mind of Robyn Hitchcock. Enjoy...
