Robert Rental

Robert Rental

Real Name:
Robert Donnachie
Scottish electronics experimenter who came to prominence in the late seventies with home made release, Paralysis, produced by friend and collaborator, Thomas Leer. Released only two solo singles which for fans of the period are well worth hunting down. Rental's major output, though, was in collaborative work, recording with both Leer and Mute supremo, Daniel Miller.
Robert (born 1952) died in October 2000 of lung cancer.
