Formed in 2001 by guitarist, Hiroshi, the band’s name, Robin, was taken from the legendary comic book heroes, Batman and Robin. Almost immediately the trio became an important genre defining psychobilly band in their native Japan. The group built a huge following in Japan with 4 critically acclaimed albums, a live DVD, and constant touring.
Already stars at home, Robin looked to take their brand of punk psychobilly to the international scene where they performed numerous shows to enthusiastic crowds in the USA, Europe and South America. While performing in Los Angeles, ROBIN caught the attention of L.A. based Nickel and Dime Records, and a deal was struck to release debut album in the USA. Recorded in Japan, and produced by Hiroshi, Thunder And Speedumb contains 11 unrelenting tracks of pure punk and psychobilly.
