We Are Robots

January 5, 2013

Well, I told you we needed fire goddammit! My fellow musicians (and uh, Terminator fans I guess): Meet Compressorhead, the world’s first robot band. Yup, you read that right. From Germany – the country that gave us Kraftwerk so we can’t act all that surprised – this three-piece is comprised of Fingers (guitars),  Bones (bass) and four-armed (!!!) drummer Stickboy. The video sees them covering Motorhead‘s anthem Ace of Spades, and I’m guessing this video gives a little taste of what visitors at the Big Day Out festival in Australia can expect as they are slated to perform there.

Something tells me these fellas don’t mind playing without a guarantee, and it’s kinda ironic seeing cheap-ass clubs and pubs finally having within reach what they’ve probably been dreaming about for years: Musicians that not only shows up on time, but always plays covers and won’t be having a problem of performing just for the sheer novelty of it – and who probably never eat ‘cept the occasional battery every thousand years so they won’t bitch about you paying a hundred bucks split four ways minus gas.

If you’ve got Facebook you might wanna drop by their official page and shake hands with our future overlords. Their memory banks know no limit, so you might wanna make a good impression now before they take over the world. More videos can be found on their official website.
