Beginning with the post punk rock trio Thela and moving through White Winged Moth and into his solo recordings, Dean Roberts has marked himself as a guitarist of unique talents. Be Mine Tonight is the first recording from the New Zealander (now based in Vienna) since And The Black Moths Play the Grand Cinema was released in 2000.

Roberts has played a variety of solo gigs and played with some of the heavyweights of electrical/acoustic improvisation. Be Mine Tonight shows how Roberts has moved from electronic texturing into songwriting and arrangements, combining rock music and sound manipulation.
