feeding the goldfish….

Posted on Sunday, March 5th, 2006

Doing this weblog is like feeding a goldfish. My children have a goldfish called sushi and I’m sure it either gets fed too much or not at all. I never remember to do it until I pass the tank, it just doesn’t ever occur to me during my day, hmm, must feed the goldfish. I’m not mean, it just doesn’t. Funnily enough I always remember if there is a fish in the fridge, but that’s not what I’m talking about here. So, anyway, just to be on the safe side sometimes I pop some food in it’s little tank, only to find out that they’ve just done the same thing. This weblog is pretty much like that (except for the fact that no one else remembers to post stuff here.. OK, it’s my weblog, but it’s their fish). Let’s just say that it’s not exactly my number one priority, what with having to look after the fish and all. So my posts of late have thinned out a little and I’ve decided to commit to writing this down in the vain hope that it may kick start the process for me to be more regular writing this stuff..
So here we go…


I’ve signed to Darla Records and will be releasing Continental in May and my next four albums for the label. The tracklist is as follows….

01. Continental
02. Conquering The Romantic
03. Crescent
04. Monument
05. Amphora
06. The Day Star
07. Radiance
08. As I Breathe
09. Last Exit
10. Pale

That’s all for now because if I write any more I will not have anything left to write tomorrow……

    Can’t wait! Can’t wait! I’ve always been a huge admirer of your music Robin! Im a stubborn bastard, and i’m hard to sastisfy but you’ve done it, you’ve done it terrifically. My days are going to be better now that I know you have a new album on the horizon. I would invite you for a cup of tea at my place, but my place isn’t a place for mortals who dwell above the soil. Good luck to you!

    Damn, Old Man… That mp3 on the Darla sight is effing sweet. You took that “big guitar sound” and made it all streamlined and sleek and sexy.

  11. Markus

    what a wonderful track(Continental), I didn´t hear anything beautiful since track # 9 + 11 from Mysterious Skin.
    The tears run and we are so happy that there is such so a lovely piece of music to come this spring.

  12. Micah

    Yay! Thanks Rob! Bursting with anticipation…

  13. vanderlei

    Hello, Robin, I wonder what has become of your participation in Bella Union, are you still together in business with Simon? You’ve never again mentioned the label, and now your next four cds are going to be released by another label other than Bella.

    Hey Robin, I’m feeding your goldfish too, Congratulations on your new effort!! Good Luck and cheers from Everyone here at Tempovision International!!!
    (I’m always wondering about the Art work for your covers , it always impresses me, your work should be at the Tate Modern next to Miro,Ernst,Duchamp!!!! Seriously.)

  21. Mr Smuts

    Hi Robin,

    I’ve been hooked on your stuff since I saw you support OMD at the Hammersmith Odeon in ’82 (or was it ’83?) anyway, it was a long time ago, so I thought it was time that I said ‘hello’ and THANK YOU for all the music. The new track on the Darla site is superb, can’t wait to hear the rest…


    Mr Smuts

  23. sanfranciscojim

    hearing your most hauntingly beautiful music once again reminds me of that most wonderful combination of personalities that will one day, i predict, rock the Earth to it’s foundations…..you must all realize your individual success first, however….(it’s happening)…..
