Robert Barnett played in the once promising band Big Ass Truck until the reality of making it in the music business forced him to get a real job. Nowadays Robert sits behind a computer writing code and marveling at how similar programming is like music composition. Or how cooking is like free jazz. Or how drinking Negronis is not like anything music related but just really fucking good.
Robert doesn’t groove like George or swing like Chad, he just plays weird shit. A product of being exposed to too much John Zorn during the critical developmental years. Naked City instead of cigarettes. Harsh.
These days you can find Robert occasionally playing in his attic and sending George & Chad videos of beats he cobbles together when he’s not too tired from working all day.
