Rob's musical education began bouncing along in the back of his mother's car to the strains of Meatloaf, Chumbawumba and The Police. Luckily, a promising future as rotund, bemulleted Marxist was avoided by his exposure to REM at the age of 12, and he now spends his days (when not drunk or moaning about his football team's misfortune) listening to alt-country music, drinking coffee and occasionally working as a media relations officer at a university. The first record he ever bought was The Lightning Seeds' Jollification, which he still claims is one of the greatest albums ever recorded. He once tried to chat up Meg White, with predictably humiliating results.
