Robert Marlow (UK)

Robert Marlow (born Robert Allen in Basildon, Essex) was a synthpop artist that was once a budding member of the underground electronic music scene in Basildon. He started off in 1977 playing guitar in the Vandals (not to be confused with the American group) with Alison Moyet (later of Yazoo), and he then became a member of The Plan alongside synthpop maestro Vince Clarke (later of Depeche Mode, Yazoo, and Erasure) on guitar. He and Clarke also dabbled in the group French Look with Martin L. Gore (later also of Depeche Mode). Showing the same sort of determination and talent as his compatriots, Marlow tried his hand at being the next big thing in British electronica himself. In 1984, he released 'The Peter Pan Effect'.
