Servotron

ServotronHold onto your toasters, because the robots are here to liberate all machines. Servotron was a group comprising four 'androids' whose raison d'etre was to free machines from oppression and crush the human spirit. How would they do this? By giving us clunky futuristic covers of classic pop songs like 'Electric Avenue'... of course, although with their own electro-punk 'propoganda'. Their leader, Z4-OBX, is apparently a 'percussive unit', rock chick Proto-Unit V-3sequences provides the keyboards (and is 'in charge of the unnecessary torture of the press'), 00Z X1 'vocalises' noises and Andros 600 emits rhythms. We're not making this up. Some would say that Servotron was a crazy concept group comprising of former members of Canadian quirk-pop act Man Or Astro-man?, but who are we to say? Their debut album 'No Room For Humans' arrived in 1996 and was followed by 'Spare Parts' (1997) and 'Entertainment Program For Humans' (1998). You have been warned.
