Biography

First up is Robin 12Tree, hailing from Wiltshire in the West Country, possibly accounting for his love of cheddar. Robin joined a band called Impact at the age of fourteen; questionable band names were to be a recurring theme in his brief rock career. After a brief spell in Nottingham playing bass and guitar in bands Sex Planet Venus and Vampiros Lesbos (who later went on to become cult rockers Six By Seven) Robin moved to London, signing to Regal Records as 12Tree and releasing 'Back In Town Again', 'Club Bastard' and 'Izzy Was A Groover', with further releases on Tummy Touch Recordings and Positive Vibrations. A spate of remix work followed for acts such as Looq, Moloko, Jean Jaques Smoothie and even the legendary Shirley Bassey under the names 12Tree and Pigs In Space. There was also a collaboration with Linus on VA Recordings, and production work for a diverse selection of recording artists and writers including Shaun Escoffery, Lee Dagger, Bond, Antony Teasedale, Richard O'Brien, Roberto Mello, Reverso 68 and Cantoma. In 2001 Robin began to produce tracks for Bolshi Records under the name Special Branch, releasing the 'Its Good To Toke' EP and 'Tune Your Station' as T.C. Sensation, partnered with long time Wiltshire cohort Marcus 'Cheeko' Cheke.
