Thursday Oct 24th @ Notsuoh - proud to welcomeJanet Robin back to WRECK SHOP (acoustic style), as she makes her first stop on a tour thru Texas!! With special guests The JägerBumms and Blind Texas Marlin! Yet another in a long history of fantastic Thursday night AR*V and Notsuoh Events!
Robin began performing professionally at the age of 16 in the mid-80's playing guitar in the all-female hard rock band Precious Metal. The band performed several local shows at venues such as FM Station, Club Lingerie, Whisky a Go Go and The Roxygaining a strong LA following. This exposure brought Precious Metal to the attention of influential KROQ radio disc jockeyRodney Bingenheimer who played their music on his local radio program. Russ Regan, head of Polygram Records, heard Precious Metal on KROQ and signed the band soon afterwards, releasing their debut record Right Here, Right Now in 1985 on Mercury Records. After leaving Polygram, the band was picked up by Capitol Records subsidiary label Chameleon who released their final two albums That Kind of Girl in 1988 and Precious Metal in 1990. While in Precious Metal, Robin wrote songs with members ofHeart, Poison and Cheap Trick.
Robin also pursued an acting career at this time with her first role being that of a female guitarist in the TV movie Best of Timesstarring Nicolas Cage and Crispin Glover. As Precious Metal gained more success, she chose to give up acting and concentrate solely on her music career.
