My Robot Friend, the stage name for one-robot band Howard Robot, somehow got caught up in the whole electroclash thing in ’02 (approximately that month when New York Mag had WIT on the cover), but forget all that. You should check the laptop-laced double-bass blues from MRF’s full-length debut Hot Action!…
… and then watch this clip for a new cut from Robot’s forthcoming album. It’s black and white and red-paint water-ballooned all over. That black ball is a star! And possibly held in place with magnets?
Robot High School is out soon on Soma Records.
