Artist Portrait


Rock and Electronic

Spleen is not exactly a band - "collective" would be the right word, a community of talented loonies led by Rob Ellis. Not two songs ever involved exactly the same people. More than twenty different musicians took part in the recordings of their albums which is the reason why Spleen were only seen couple of times live, because it was impossible to gather all those people on stage. Some of their collaborators include Lou Ciccotelli, John Parish, Pascal Humbert, Terry Edwards, Tim Farthing, PJ Harvey, Pooka, Pinkie Maclure, Steve Vaughan, Chas Dickie.
