Röövel Ööbik, which translates as Robber Nightingale, was formed in Estonia under Soviet rule in 1987.Read More...
Their subsequent collective vibrations carried them over land and sea to perform far and wide. From Finland on to Hungary and Poland, and even to the very bastions of Western pop culture. Firstly, in 1990, to New York and the New Music Seminar, then, in 1993, to London to record a legendary John Peel session for BBC Radio One.
In this guise, Röövel Ööbik recorded one album, entitled 'Popsubterranea', for Finnish label Stupido Twins, released in 1992.
Then, as Russia released its grip on Estonia the world opened up, Röövel Ööbik's sound and name mutated. New influences flooded in, jazz and funk, house, and drum & bass. The result was the album 'Psychikosmos' (1994).
After all that jazz the group became known as Una Bomba, sampling & fusing rock & electronica into a sound they called nihi-listening. That sound is encapsulated in their debut CD 'Honeycombat'(1997- Plastilin?, 2000 Highpark records) and 'Aerosol' (2002- Umblu records) albums.
