Posted by on Aug 29, 2015 in Robs Records | 0 comments

The Dismemberment Plan (D-Plan)   D-Plan came out of Washington D.C. around 1993. They released 4 albums and 3 EPs from 93′ to 03′ when they disbanded. They reunited in 2011 toured the U.S. and Japan. They released a live album in 2013. Hello all! So let’s talk Indie Rock. I hate to label music and bands but for the sake of this blog, I will just to help you find them if you so desire.   I think it was around 2002 or 2003 when I was turned on to D-Plan. I met a super cool lady by the name of Michele. We worked together, and after talking a bit we realized we had similar taste in music. She opened up a whole new world of music to me — The Indie scene with bands like Modest Mouse,...

Mighty Men and Monster Maker

My love of comics developed at an early age. I would read any comics I could get my hands on, from Spider-Man to Batman to Sgt. Rock, heck, even Casper and Uncle Scrooge. These days, a comic has to have a good story and fairly well-developed characters for me to be hooked, but back then, it was mostly the artwork that grabbed me. Neal Adams, Jim Aparo, Jack Kirby, all the artists we consider to be masters of the Silver and Bronze Ages of comics helped form my love for comics. It was only natural that I would try my hand at drawing the heroes I loved so much. Drawing pictures is something all kids do, one of their earliest forms of expressing themselves. So, I drew superheroes. I would copy the pictures out of the comics, off of...

Hello everyone! Please let me explain to you a  phrase that started on the show over and over. Something we like to call, The Supergirl Syndrome. This is a reference to Dan and his love for the 1984 Supergirl film. has been commonly known that when your a kid everything is great. Everyone remembers how awesome cartoons were and the love you had for them. Then it happens, you get older and not interested in them anymore and time passes on. Then one day you decide to go back and watch something you loved as a kid. As you sit down to relive the joy and happiness this cartoon/T.V. show/movie gave you when you were easily amused, a confused and worrisome look covers your face and you ask yourself, “What the hell am I watching?! This is awful! How the hell...

The Dave Matthews Band was formed in 1991 in Charlottesville, VA. by, of course Dave Matthews.  The band is said to be a rock, pop, funk, jazzy, type of band.  I like to refer to them as a Jam Band.  The hardly ever take a break form the road, always on tour and playing special events.  At the time of this post they have 8 studio albums and somewhere around 60 live albums.  If you want the whole story on DMB check out their homepage  http://davematthewsband.com/ or  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Matthews_Band.    I have been a DMB fan since 1994.  During my senior year of high school, a radio station named The Coast played “Ants Marching.”  I loved it the first time I heard it.  What I heard was nothing quite like I had heard before.  A rock band, with a violin, and...
