Celebrating the long-awaited release of 'The Voluntary Butler Scheme At Breakfast, Dinner, Tea', the debut album by Rob Jones, a 23-year-old pop prodigy with three singles to date, 'Trading Things In', 'Multiplayer' and 'Tabasco Sole' which have blended The Jackson 5 and classic Motown to an instinctual, home-made aesthetic.
The album was recorded in a studio in Stockwell with Charlie Francis, known for his work with REM and the High Llamas, and a handful of guest musicians. This is a 'solo' show, as Rob is insistent right now that The Voluntary Butler Scheme is 'him, and only him' - but in Rob's case that obviously means piano, guitar, drums and synth.
MONSTER BOBBY is a singer songwriter also known as the brains & guitarist behind girly popsters THE PIPETTES, but his solo work is a mix of electronic samples, offbeat songwriting and avant-garde intellectual influences. Monster Bobby claims his music to be as affected by Freud, Stockhausen and Derrida, as it is by The Human League, The Archies and S'Express.
