American band formed in the early 80s in California. It originally consisted of Peter Kingsbery (vocals, keyboards, bass), Anna LaCazio (vocals, keyboards), Clive Wright (guitars) and Louis Molino III (drums). By 1987, Cock Robin’s line-up only included Kingsbery and LaCazio.
Their first album was released in 1985. It was very successful in Europe, particularly in France. The album included the two hits ”When Your Heart Is Weak” and ”The Promise You Made”.
In 1987, the second album, ”After Here Through Midland”, was released. Including the hit ”Just Around The Corner”, it was a success as well.
1989 saw the release of the third album, ”First Love Last Rites”, which included the hit ”Worlds Apart”. Unfortunately the band split up a few time after.
During its short career, the band toured in a few European countries and achieved great popularity with its romantic songs.
The band was reformed in 2006, releasing the fourth album ”I Don’t Want To Save The World”, much to the joy of a loyal following of fans. In the meantime, Peter Kingsbery had achieved a solo career, releasing 4 albums that failed to garner much attention, even in France.
In 2009, the band is coming back with a new album, a live recording of the 2006 Chalons-en-Champagne concert, and a tour in France, the Netherlands and Switzerland.

Just Around the Corner
After Here Through Midland
The single "Just Around the Corner" proved to be the biggest hit in Europe, and it remains a staple on adult contemporary and pop music stations in France.
I'd give it up and start all over if I could
chasing back the hands of time
Praise my intuition, knock on wood
You could never change my mind
though I stop a lot and wonder how the tables have been turned
I used to think I loved you, but I still can't really say for sure
I'm liable to be curious until the day I die
for the best years of life with you
for all our mistakes
for the reasons I thought I knew
for experience's sake
Count my blessings with my heart upon a shelf
Once is more than enough
who'd have thought that I would only hurt myself
I can only take so much
Please don't make me out an angel 'cause I feel so out of place
I just haven't got the patience, like ??????????????
looking for a handout, or just one more kiss goodbye
For the best years of life with you
for all that's at stake
for the sweet love I hold on to
For experience's sake
