Oscar winning actor and director Tim Robbins has turned his hand to music, and released a debut album.
The statute of limitations is well up on good actor/bad album jokes. Besides, Tim Robbins, who has just released his debut album Tim Robbins and the Rogues Gallery Band, has plenty of pedigree. His mother was a choral singer, his father a stalwart of the Greenwich Village '60s folk boom. Plus, in 1992, Tim and his brother David composed the songs for Robbins's directorial debut Bob Roberts, which recast protest folk as right-wing dogma.
Tim Robbins & The Rogues Gallery Band is out now on [PIAS] Recordings. They play The Academy on September 23 for Arthur's Day and Whelan's, Dublin on September 26.
