Danger Will Robinson Supergroup Action Skulls To Release An Album

Former Lost In Space child-astronaut Will Robinson (aka Bill Mumy) along with The Bangles’ Vicki Peterson, her husband John Cowsill from the group The Partridge Family was based on The Cowsills and Neil Young’s former bass player, the late Rick Rosas became supergroup Action Skulls in 2013.

Bill, Vicki and John were at a party hosted by Bill’s Lost In Space co-star Angela Cartwright around Christmas 2013. A night of frolicking around a piano turned into a recording session and Action Skulls was born.

Bill was out at a gig the week after the party with Rosas who liked the idea and wanted to be part of the band. In January 2014, they booked a studio at ReadyMix Music and quickly popped out three songs. Bill then fiddled with the tracks more at his home studio. Vicki said that it “seemed to just fall into place, once we decided if there was going to be a single — or group — lead vocal.”

Action Skulls Angels HearThe group worked on the tracks across 2014 but in November of that year tragedy struck. Rick Rosas died and the group was put on hold. “It stunned us into being frozen for a while,” Bill admits. “It took quite a while to get back on the horse.” Vicki added, “he’d play the unexpected and it sounded as if that part was meant to be there and the song was now complete.”

Eight songs were finished at the time of Rick’s death. Recently, Bill, Vicki and John regrouped to create three more songs, which will make up Action Skulls one and only album ‘Angels Hear’.

Angela Cartwright contributed as well. The cover art is a “Penny Robinson” original.

‘Angels Hear’ by Action Skulls will be released on September 29.
