Dr Robert & The Blow Monkeys
Famous for ‘Digging Your Scene’ and ‘It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way’, - belting tunes but there's so much more to Dr Robert than that.
At the forefront of everything, is depth. Real music, passion and care taken over the writing and playing. Moving relentlessly forwards.
The songs keep coming, the playing gets tighter, the accompaniments less, and the soul seeps through. An unstoppable force.
That artists like this aren't more revered for refusing to rely on a stunning back catalogue, but to keep digging for the gold, is beyond me – I'm just glad they do, and honoured to be part of it.
As Robert once remarked to me in the Andalusian sunshine, "The best is in front of me, not behind me, I genuinely believe that"… nuff said.
Ladies and Gentlemen I give you one of Britain's finest...
