A couple of weeks ago Robbi toured with his wife Amritakripa plus Dug Pinnick and Mike Hansen. It was a mini tour with only three dates, but it apparently was pure magic! And because of this Robbi created a mini documentary.
Enjoy this clip ;-)
Have you guys in the USA already organized your trip to one of the eight 3rd Ear Experience gigs? I do hope so!
Oh, and .. *drum roll* .. say 'HI' to brand new music! Robbi just uploaded the brand new "EAR TO SPACE" album on bandcamp. Enjoy!
"This album was created out of series of jam sessions. The basic mixes were sent to Dr Space, who then, jammed along as if he was playing with the band, the files were sent to Robbi, who then mixed, added a few overdubs and the magic was created.
For Side D, the opposite happened and Dr Space created the basic tracks and 3rd ear jammed along. So what does it sound like?? Space rock with a cool ethnic or electronic vibe at times. Side A and B are more rocking while side C and D are more ambient and spaced out trips."
News! Finally some news here on robbirobb.com! And if you happen to live in North America, this might be the best news for you this year: The 3rd Ear Experience is going to tour in your part of the world!
The line-up for this tour is mindblowing: There's of course Robbi Robb on vocals and guitar, but there's also the one and only Dug Pinnick on bass guitar and Mike Hansen on drums! Yup, that's the SAME line-up as back then in 1997 when Tribe After Tribe toured Europe! Expect to hear some 4rd Ear and some Tribe After Tribe material!
Have a look at the tour poster to check out the eight dates!

Welcome back to robbirobb.com! This new version of the site just went online. And I do hope you like what you see! As mentioned earlier, this page is much smaller than the old version. I'll add lyrics and MP3 samples to every album, though. Gimme a few more weeks and that'll be done!
The major work for the new robbirobb.com site is done! All projects are online and feature a band bio, the albums and photographs. Sound samples and lyrics will follow at some point in the future, promised!
It was early 2008 - my wife was pregnant - that I redesigned robbirobb.com. I knew I would not be able to spend much time on the site because my new life as a proud father would consume a lot of time and energy. Anyhow, six years have passed and things settled down a bit and this means: Welcome to the new version of robbirobb.com!
The new version is much (!) smaller than the old one. I want to keep things simple. Timeless. Robbi runs the Facebook site for Tribe After Tribe and you'll be sure to get all the news over there. This place here basically covers his discography for his many projects! Enjoy!
