After starting BOBGOBLIN as a concept around 1992, we in this solidified line-up have been rocking together for 20 years, since the time of our 1994 independent release, JET. We did indeed spend a good deal of time, post-major-label, under the moniker of our more poppy alter-ego AOJ (Adventures of Jet), and honestly we might have found more success with that endeavor overall. However, a few years back, certain socio-politcal issues inspired us to return to our original path, refocusing on the ideological and artistic inclinations that defined why we set out on this journey together in the first place. Since our return to the original name and to our rejuvenated pursuit, we have been hard at work on a few different records and a few video projects. As yet, all of these projects are in various states of completion, but many of the songs are already available in digital form, making it fairly clear where we stand and what we are after 20-plus years of friendship. If you are new to the world of BOBGOBLIN, we invite you to go to the MUSIC page and acquaint yourself with some of our 20 years of rock. There may come a day when it's simply not feasible to tour at all, but for better or worse, we will likely keep churning out tunes until the union is broken by the hooded skeleton. We hope you continue to tune in until "The Last Ride."
Welcome to the official page of BOBGOBLIN, a band whose current line-up has been together since 1994, building on a concept that started in 1992. After some creative diversions over the years, including a period in which we released a couple of records under the name AOJ (Adventures of Jet), the group is more committed than ever to bringing our many musical, visual, and conceptual ideas to light, even as the twilight begins to sprint with us in our race to the finish while the noise of digital shit tries to drown us out. Join us on this and other sites as we continue to release new songs, unveil new videos, and discuss the issues and inspirations that help feed our rock n' roll rants. Make sure to sign up for our mailing list or follow us if you'd like to be notified when new songs and videos are released and when new shows are announced. In our world, you that enjoy the BOB's rock are the Black Market Party, the boldest and most independent-spirited rock n' roll fans on Earth. Stay tuned to this BMP channel and we will continue to lead the march of the party as we have done for the long haul. Let's Rock!
