junkstar rocky

Junkstar Rocky began in 1994 and was originally the solo project of singer/ songwriter Thomas Robert. A staunch home recorder Thomas Robert recorded upwards of 800+ songs mostly handing out on tapes and cds to friends. Was offered a Major Label recording contract and was being called " the next big thing " in many insider music industry circles. But shortly after refusing the recording contract in 1994 Thomas Robert spiraled into the darkness of drinking, drugs, and toad smoking. While this fall from grace arguably helped him to pen some of the greatest songs of the 90s, it ended with Thomas Robert growing a large beard, moving to a mountain in NY and living in isolation. Interestingly during this hazy period for the band, Thomas enlisted some of his closest friends to continue recording songs and releasing albums, most featured of these friends is Matt "Mud" Resnick "One of the greatest underrated guitar players of our time!"-Rollingstome Magazine. This band is an interesting mix of acoustic based , psychedelic fueled , garage rock for a new generation. There were long time rumors that Thomas Robert died in 2012 during an intense toad smoking session and out of body experience, and his music continues to be put out by living band members. But there are others that claim to have heard his bearded shrieks coming from a basement of an old house on a hill somewhere in upstate NY.
