My name is Robin Allender. I am a Bristol-based singer, guitarist and songwriter.
In 2003 I formed the band Azalea City Penis Club with Simon Grant and Dave Collingwood. This band is still theoretically in existence, although Simon is currently in Manchester training to be a doctor. In December 2004, Simon lent me his four-track and I started writing and recording my own songs. You can download these demos here: http://www.mediafire.com/?jiyntbdnmiz
In 2005 I started playing solo gigs around Bristol. Around this time my friend Michael Williams and I decided to set up a record label to promote my music, as well as that of the Penis Club and The Rollercoaster Project. Dreamboat Records was born.
In late 2006 I assembled a band (The Allender Band) to accompany me live and in the studio. This band featured Alex Wilkins on guitar and Sam Tarbuck on bass. Dave played drums for us, but left the band in 2008, to be replaced by Sean Talbot. The Allender Band is currently on hiatus.
From early 2007 to mid-2008 I played bass and keyboards for Gravenhurst. Since May 2009 I have been playing guitar with Yann Tiersen. This has involved touring Europe, Russia and China. Keep an eye on Yann's MySpace for tourdates.
