You're Not Rob Snarski
UWA graduate Rob Snarski is one of Western Australia’s best-loved musical talents: he is and has been part of iconic Australian bands The Blackeyed Susans, The Triffids, and Chad’s Tree, and has performed with the legendary Leonard Cohen. His memoir, You’re Not Rob Snarski, is a shimmering, fragmentary book that mirrors the life of a musician and the nature of memory. Read the book before seeing The Blackeyed Susans perform in Perth at the end of May. RRP $24.99; UWA staff and student price $19.99. Call us on (08) 6488 3670 to redeem this offer. Offer valid until Wednesday 31 May.
From Perth to Europe and all points in between, Rob Snarski shares his observations and insights from the music world he has performed in, the people he has worked with, the domesticated animals he has loved, and the things he’s had to do to pay the rent.
Snarski has played in legendary Australian bands since the 1980s: Chad’s Tree, The Blackeyed Susans, and as a guest singer with The Triffids. This collection of fragments and photographs uncover a delicate humour in the man who remains a dedicated follower of music and the musicians he’s been influenced by.
