"Crying at the Zoo"
Robert Lastdrager has a background of over twenty years as a recording and touring artist in the Australian music industry. The singer songwriter has played and recorded with Australian rock and roll groups as diverse as surf trio The Tommys, garage power pop combo the Stiff Kittens and country rockers the T Bones.
In 2009 Fryup Records is proud to release Robert Lastdragerís first solo single "Crying at the Zoo".
This country blues ballad with a doo wop feel evolved out of Robertís regular outings to the Melbourne zoo with his four year old daughter Caledonia.
"My daughter loves the zoo, but despite her enthusiasm I always felt somehow saddened by the place. When the song came to me I started singing the melody to my newborn daughter Bonnie. She smiled every time, so that was all the motivation I needed to finish it."
Robert is a writer and photographer who is a regular contributor to the Big Issue Magazine and assorted music industry publications. He works in childcare and lives in inner city Melbourne with his partner and their two young daughters.
