I know that he joined Magazine for a while (I think the only recording he did with them is the live "Play" Mini LP recorded on tour in Australia).

He also played on "The Garden" and "The Golden Section", as well as being part of the band (with Zeus B Held on keys and Jo Dworniak on bass, unless I've been misled) for the "Golden Section" tour. I've seen Billy Currie mentioning some projects involving Robin which never came to fruition, too.

Any help?

Incidentally, a fair proportion of the Magazine live stuff is featured on the magnificent (and cheap) 3CD box set released a couple of years ago.

In case you didn't realise...

the final issue of EV magazine, Extreme Voice 20, featured an interview with Robin.

Remember he was also part of Billy's late eighties band, the short-lived, Humania.

Cheers,
