Asa Brebner – Don’t Ever Lose A Memory from I Walk Streets ( 2000)

Asa Brebner – Ragged Religion  (2008)

Robin Lane and the Chartbusters – When Things Go Wrong (1980)

Robin Lane left Southern California eventually landing in Cambridge, Massachusetts and stepped into the burgeoning rock scene in the 70s forming Robin Lane and The Chartbusters with former Modern Lover Asa Brebner.  Robin Lane and the Chartbusters recorded three albums for Warner Brothers: Robin Lane and the Chartbusters (1980), the live EP 5 Live, and Imitation Life (1981). Two singles from the first album, “When Things Go Wrong” and “Why Do You Tell Lies?” lots of radio airplay – nationwide and here in Boston (eh hem WBCN) . Rock magazines gave good reviews with the first record earning 4-stars in the New Rolling Stone Record Guide. A fine nod from the Washington Post with, “Though Blondie’s Deborah Harry and the Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde have had more hits and better press, Robin Lane looms large as the most talented female artist to come out of New Wave Rock.” The band toured heavily headlining their own shows and supported The Kinks, The Cars, Hall and Oates and XTC. The band played what would be their last reunion shows this month at the Burren in Davis Square.
