Robert works as both a visual artist (paintings, drawings, fanzines) and musician. His work is meant to be an illustration of new worlds, with an interest in metaphysics and spirtuality through abstract but sometimes more realistic gestures. His works are visons or beliefs that the artist not yet understands, channeled through primitive gestures. It´s difficult to describe his music as just "noise" beacause his roots into the brittish new wave and punk-rock are deep. Another characteristic of Robert´sound is his use of voice (singing, screaming, spoken words, etc.) and also the use of the radio, radio-noise. Ritualistic radio squeel, bitch slap electro-bass (pronounced like the fish), and improvised piff-paff infiltrate all five "songs", while side A is notable for its continual references to knackered cyberpets. Robert croons a bit aswell - firm. Complete with neon orange tapes, colour stickers and "blood on the sea urchin"-style artwork. Limited to 31 copies.
