Robots In Disguise

img_1146Last night, I rounded off the frantic week of gig-going with a visit to a night named Don't Look Down, at Barfly, to see Robots In Disguise. They were enjoyable, dancing around, mock-fighting, playing guitar and bass and singing over a backing track and visuals coming off a DVD. They were not unlike Chicks On Speed, or perhaps Le Tigre, in concept; one part crunchy rock riffs, one part danceable electronic sequences, and deliberately rough and unpolished vocals.

I can think of about 3 or 4 Melbourne bands I could see them on a bill with.
