DAS RA consist of:

Nick Robinson
A former member of Sheffield bands as diverse as Typhoon Saturday, Dig Vis Drill, They Must Be Russians and the Comsat Angels, Nick has for many years offered a range of soundscapes and other looping guitar pieces. Using just the guitar and a laptop, he takes you via the power of improvisation to distant planets. Nick most recent release is "Cotyledon" with his "Lost Garden" duo.

Martin Archer
Following an early career with 1980s jazz punk pell mellers Bass Tone Trap, followed by the fondly remembered and widely gigged Hornweb Sax Quartet, Martin disappeared into the recording studio for 15 years in 1994, from where he produced a series of highly acclaimed albums for his own Discus imprint. In recent years, as well as forging a several album creative partnership with veteran vocalist Julie Tippetts, Martin currently works with avant rock groups Orchestra of the Upper Atmosphere and Combat Astronomy, 35 voice experimental music choir Juxtavoices,and most recently ten piece jazz group Engine Room Favourites, in which Martin revisits his AACM roots.
