(c’93-’96) – Rob Foster (guitar/vocals), Andy Leighton (bass), Paula Benham (keyboards), and Rupert Hollis (drums)

Womb at The Cricketers, Westfield

Womb formed thanks to the bassist with Big Belief and a recording session at his WTD Studios in Shere where Rob Selway introduced Foster, who’d been in F-File, to Leighton and Benham, and was later introduced to Hollis, who’d played drums in Big Belief. This session became the album “Great Big Wall”, after which Justin Coll of Pentagon Promotions took on the role of band management.

In ’94, Womb secured second place at one of The Tumbledown Dick’s battle of the bands competition; and played to 1,500 people at Guilfest (it was a one day event back then) along with Ralph McTell, Tom Robinson and John Otway Big Band. Womb also opened The Maltings based Farnham Fusion Festival that year. ’95 saw Womb’s final gig at the H.G. Wells Suite, Woking.

Foster is currently a solo artist, jingle producer and sound man at Radio Woking; while Leighton is playing with Shooting Fish.
