C**k Robin

The 1980s new wave movement introduced a large number of stylish, artful bands from the U.K. and Europe to American audiences, but the opposite was also true, and C**k Robin were one act from the U.S. that found a larger and more loyal audience outside their homeland. While "When Your Heart Is Weak" was a modest hit in the U.S. in 1985, the single fared better overseas, and over the next five years, C**k Robin would enjoy consistent success in France, as well as in Italy, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands, while attracting only a cult following in their homeland.

C**k Robin was formed in 1982 by Arizona-born Peter Kingsbery, who was establishing a career as a tunesmith in Los Angeles when he relocated to San Francisco and formed the group. With Kingsbery on keyboards, bass, and vocals, he filled out the C**k Robin lineup with vocalist Anna LaCazio, guitarist Clive Wright, and drummer Louis Molino III. The group landed a deal with Columbia Records, and their self-titled debut album was released in 1985. Produced by noted prog rock guitarist Steve Hillage, C**k Robin spawned "When Your Heart Is Weak," which rose to 35 on the American pop charts, and to the Top Ten in France and Germany. The follow-up single, "The Promise You Made," failed to chart in the States, but went Top Ten in France, Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands, while it peaked at number one in Belgium. C**k Robin's polished blend of pop hooks, new wave style, and arena rock guitars made them stars across Europe, and while their second album, 1987's After Here Through Midland, struggled to 166 on the American album charts, it went platinum in France and reached the Top Ten in Germany, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland. By the time After Here Through Midland was released, the original lineup had splintered, and Kingsbery and LaCazio were joined by a handful of session musicians to record the album, which was produced by heartland rock specialist Don Gehman.

C**k Robin's third effort, First Love: Last Rites, was produced by Rhett Davies, who had previously worked with Roxy Music, King Crimson, and Genesis. Once again, Kingsbery and LaCazio were the faces of the group, and studio musicians rounded out the lineup. The album was modestly successful in France when it was released in 1989, but was overlooked in most other markets, and Columbia didn't release it in America until 1990. A few months after its unsuccessful stateside debut, C**k Robin broke up, with Kingsbery and LaCazio both going on to solo careers. In 2006, Kingsbery and LaCazio teamed with original guitarist Clive Wright to re-form C**k Robin, recording a new album, I Don't Want to Save the World. The group supported the release with a tour of France, and a fifth album, Songs from a Bell Tower, followed in 2010, supported by more live dates in France and Spain. In 2015, a French music magazine broke the news that LaCazio had left C**k Robin after Kingsbery relocated to France (where he was also a solo star) while she preferred to live and record in the United States. C**k Robin's French website later revealed that Coralie Vuillemin would be the group's new female vocalist, and that Chinese Driver would be released in March 2016. ~ Mark Deming

The second wave of British Invasion bands in the 80's mostly sucked. They were products of the whole MTV influence which promoted style over substance or stupid haircut bands or even worse, stupid haircut glam metal bands where poseurs all wore makeup, permed their hair, and tried to look tough on the album covers. What a joke.

I've seen names published that are worse than this one. I think they are great, and wish they could be found easier.

Using the same logic every time a Peter,Dick or Rod pop up then Pandora needs to take a knife to them (metaphorica l l y speaking,of course).

This was one of my favorite groups from the 80s. Catchy music with thoughtful lyrics and great vocals. It is too bad the comments have been relegated to how their name doesn't fit in to this PC world.
