Robin

Despite his supernatural beginnings, Robin is today equally at home on the electric bass, synth bass, and upright (double) bass.

“In the beginning there was a bass. It was a Fender, probably a Precision, but it could have been a Jazz – nobody knows. Anyway, it was very old… definitely pre-C.B.S. And God looked down upon it and saw that it was good. He saw that it was very good in fact, and couldn’t be improved on at all (though men would later try). And so He let it be and He created a man to play the bass. The man was called “Robin”. “Robin” played upon the open E string and the note rang through the earth and reverberated throughout the firmament (thus reverb came to be.) And it was good. Then in the course of time, the man came to slap upon the bass. And lo, it was funky”

Robin excels in many styles as a live performer and has appeared at the Vienna, Troyes and Montreux Festivals, the Royal Festival Hall, and many other concert venues around the UK. He also works as a composer and producer. Hailed by many as the best looking member of Chemistry, it is little consolation for the other (male) members that Robin is also super-talented, hardworking and an all-round thoroughly nice bloke!
