Biography

Robert Plant and the Strange Sensation is a British hard rock band formed by former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant in 2002. It currently consists of Plant (vocal, guitar), Justin Adams (steel guitar, mandolin), John Baggott (keyboards), Clive Deamer (drums), Billy Fuller (bass) and Skin Tyson (lead guitar). Several members of the band were former touring members for Portishead and at one time the band featured once-and-future Cure guitarist Porl Thompson

Plant’s attraction and affection to the music of Morocco, the Atlas region and beyond and his lifelong leaning towards the psychedelic indo-rock of West Coast USA, led to a new collision of styles and colours aka Strange Sensation.

Their first album together ‘Dreamland’, received great critical acclaim and two Grammy nominations in January 2003.

In recent times, Plant has recorded with Afro Celt Sound System and along with Skin and Justin Adams, travelled to South Sahara, North of Timbuktu in Mali to participate in the 2nd Festival of the Desert, a gathering of African Saharan and assorted soul musicians including Oumou Sangare, Ali Farka Toure, Tinariwen and Tidawt. This project ultimately became a CD compilation to be found on the Harmonia Mundi label.

2003 saw the prestigious release of the definitive Plant retrospective, ’Sixty Six to Timbuktu’, which included a selection of Plant’s solo work from his first recording date to his appearance in Mali.
