Tom Robinson: Sector 27 This attempt to fuse TRB's music-hall cheer with postpunk postfunk isn't as innovative as its sources, but it comes across better on record. Robinson has always flattened his flair for melody under one-dimensional rhythms and vocal attack, but here the arty touches-that is, Stevie . s perverse little guitar parts-serve what I'd call a "commercial" function if only the record were selling better.
