Hello, avid readers.

It's Rob here, and it's my turn to tell you all about what we've been up to over the last month or so. I will do this in what people from the internet call: a 'blog'. 

As I write to you, I'm sitting in my childhood bedroom on our manager's old broken laptop, punching harder than you would expect is appropriate at the keyboard in order to make it work. If anyone could see me now, they would surely be convinced that I have gone mad and some men in white coats would be along shortly to come and take me away. Thankfully for all of us, that is not the case and I can bash away violently until my heart is content whilst listening to 'Sylvia's Mother' by Dr. Hook for about the 1000th time in a row. 

Anyway, enough about me; more about...

KING OF MYSPACE? That's that Rob called himself when interviewed by M Magazine for this month's 30 Second Interview feature. Oh yes.🎈

Hello all.

It's me: Rob, your favourite member of semi-popular beat combo Marsicans. How are you? What's new in your life? Who did YOU think would win 'Dancing On Ice' in 2011? Oh wow, I also thought it would be Vanilla Ice. It must be love.

Now that we have all the burning questions out of the way, I'm going to take you step-by-step through all things Marsican from the month of March.

Let me set the scene: it's March-eve (February 28th to non-weirdos) and sh'boys have just finished our final tour rehearsals with full production and all the trimmings. Tomorrow is the first day of our UK headline tour and we're all really excited to come out and play some sold-out shows to you lovely, lovely people. We make a list, check it twice, Oli breaks a mi...

ROB'S TOUR TIPS. In this episode, Rob shares his tips on optimising the Morrisons salad experience and describes pasta as 'malleable'. Other supermarkets are available.🎈

Hiya loves. It's sh'boy Rob here giving you a slice of Marsicans action, straight from my almost empty head. The month is October and, in the words of The Mamas and The Papas, 'all the leaves are brown' this must mean that it is Autumn and you can confirm this by looking out of your window, assuming that you have windows and don't live in some kind of Harry Potter-esque cupboard under the stairs. (If this is the case, here is a number you can call for help: 999) Right, now that the scene is set I can tell you all about our month...

We've been on our holidays to Europe, namely the countries of France, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Luton and, Royal Tunbridge Wells. Okay the last two aren't countries, nor are they in Europe, but we did stop off for a...

ROB had the privilege of engaging Paige Tracey of TRMW magazine with his "flat and friendly northern accent."

Hi there, earth humans. It's sh'boy Rob here. May I take a few minutes of your time to tell you about what we did in May. Get it? All right, let's swiftly move on.

WE HAVE BEEN/ARE STILL ON TOUR. Yep, that's right the month of May has taken us both the furthest North AND South that we have ever been in the United Kingdom. (That's the place you lazily call 'the U.K'. Yes you do. I've heard you say it.) At the start of this month, we loaded our van Pat with instruments, amplifiers and Maoam in equal measure and set off on the biggest tour we have undertaken to date, supporting our label-mates Natives. We were both nervous and excited about what would lie ahead, so much so that Oli DIDN'T fall asleep on the way to our first show in Bristol. Oli is...

ROB TALKS to Gigslutz and it's all 80s pop meets heavy metal, run-down venues and cheap cider.

ROB chatted to Craig from No Ripcord Magazine about half-baked ideas, the best January of his life and things taking a turn for the worse.

The year is 2017. America has just inaugurated it’s 45th President, an overgrown Oompa Loompa in a funny blonde wig and Britain is preparing to leave the EU, led by one of the characters from Roald Dahl’s ‘The Witches’, also wearing a funny blonde wig. Everyone is certain that the world will end soon and yet, despite all this, I just had one of the best Januarys you could possibly imagine. 

It’s your main man Rob here, coming at you live from the sofa and I’m gonna tell you all about our European tour…

Two weeks ago, me and the boys set off on a voyage that would take us across four countries. We started this voyage at the wonderful white cliffs of Dover and, after a quick frisk by the relevant authorities, we boarded a ship...

Summer is over and Autumn has arrived (or so I'm told by Paul The Weather Man from popular BBC drama 'The News'). Soon the leaves will begin to fall from the trees and I will once again be able to wear all of my clothes instead of just some of them. Honestly, I've got a really nice coat that I haven't worn in ages, I could not be more excited to throw that bad boy over my feminine shoulders and strut. Right now though, I suppose I'd better tell you all about what we've been up to over the last month...

Firstly, we announced LOADS of shows in the UK and we are buzzing to get back out on the road. Piling into Pat, our beloved van, and traversing this country's many motorways is what we live for. We can't wait to see you all and have a party. Oli's...
