Robots In Disguise
The Robots first met at a Le Tigre gig and quickly discovered a shared love of girl punk bands and so started writing music together.
Snapped up by French label, Recall, ROBOTS IN DISGUISE released their eponymous debut album in 2004, creating a real buzz throughout Europe after which they took their crazed live show on tour. Their dancefloor killer 12” single, BOYS, was released with remixes by Hidden Agenda, SIN, The Servant and Tommy Hools and won over a host of fans including Boy George and Peaches.
After a US release and tour in 2005, ROBOTS IN DISGUISE released GET RID!, their sharp, snazzy electrofunk album on Recall in France, Anorak Supersport in Benelux countries and Australia’s Shock Records. Their standout single, DJ’s GOT A GUN, enjoyed heavy rotation across Europe and the States. GET RID! was then released by President Records in the UK last year, with its single, TURN IT UP, featured on US hit show, Ugly Betty.
Robots in Disguise have graced the pages of numerous fashion magazines donning their discopunk mod look and have also acted in BBC2's The Mighty Boosh as evil alter egos, The Electro Girls and The Goth Girls.
