Fresh Meat Monday - Dead Boy Robotics

Would you care to introduce yourself?

Gregor McMillan, vocalist and bass player from Edinburgh band Dead Boy Robotics.

How would you describe the music you make?

Alternative, electronic, new wave, tribal.

How did you start out making music?

Dead Boy Robotics started off as late night noise experiments that involved making guitars sound like Gameboys, putting vintage synths through loop pedals and sawing Casio keyboards in half.

What process goes into the way you write songs?

Songs usually stem from a guitar riff or laptop idea and are built from there. Once we have refined those ideas into a loose song structure vocals start creeping in. Lyrics are usually the last part to be written and vocal melodies always seem to be the last thing to be worked out.

What can people expect from your live shows?

Our live shows have become very energetic and very loud since the recent addition of drummer Paul Bannon.

What are you all listening to at the moment?

At the moment of typing this 'Changes' by Yes is playing on my iTunes...but i've also been enjoying recent albums by Zola Jesus, M83, Kuedo and Mastodon.

What can we expect to see/hear from you in the future?

Our debut album comes out at the end of November so we'll be playing some shows in support of it's release. For 2012 we'll be writing album number two and will hopefully have some festival appearances.
