Bob Stanley (born Robert Andrew Shukman, 25 December 1964, in Horsham, Sussex) is a UK musician, film maker and journalist. He is best known as a member of the pop/dance group Saint Etienne for which he co-writes songs and produces. Live on stage, he normally plays keyboards and xylophone.

He has had a long parallel career as a music journalist writing for amongst others "NME", "Melody Maker", "Mojo", "The Guardian" and "The Times". In the late 1980s/early 1990s he briefly ran a record label and fanzine called "Caff", which released early singles by the Manic Street Preachers and Pulp.

When Saint Etienne are between projects, Stanley DJs, playing generally 1960s pop music. He also promotes similar club nights in and around London.

Between 1992 and 1994, Stanley and Saint Etienne bandmate Pete Wiggs ran the indie label Icerink Records. The most notable act to emerge from this endeavour was the girl-group Shampoo.

In 1996, Stanley ran EMIDisc, again alongside Wiggs and adding EMI Director of A&R Tris Penna. The label was to be an EMI sub-label devoted to new talent. The label was shortlived and the only major act to emerge was Kenickie.
