Rob then embarked on a solo career, writing and recording songs in his bedroom, using an old technics midi system and overdubbing each recording between the tape decks, pretty technical stuff, until he saved up enough money to buy the latest 4 track cassette recorder. Rob had his song Everything Was Through played on Steve Wright in The Morning’s unsigned bands section.
With an arsenal of about 20 songs Rob started to record them at WTD Studios in Shere, where he met owner Rob Selway and produced his first album “Great Big Wall” Rob recruited Andy Leighton and Paula Benham on Bass and Keyboards respectively, Rob Selway from WTD introduced him to drummer Rupert Hollis, The Line-Up was complete, 4 piece band Womb were born.
Very importantly Rob’s work colleague Justin Coll became Womb’s manager, he put in a lot of effort getting gigs and promoting the Womb name and as a result Womb shortly became very popular on the local scene, They played all over the Surrey area, they came second at The Tumbledown Dick’s battle of the bands competition (second to the events organisers, if the truth be known!), played a storming set at Guilfest 1994, and opened the Farnham Fusion Festival, things were looking up!The band had a good couple of years together, culminating in some London gigs.
What turned out to be the final gig was at the HG Wells Suite, Woking, the following week a certain Robbie Williams played there having just left Take That!
Womb split in 1997, all four members of the band moved on and worked on other projects.
