The Giant Robots is not a vintage band, they don’t play music for old people, deaf animals nor they play the blues. The Giant Robots is an original Rock and Roll group created in 1996 (or was it in 1966 maybe?). They celebrated their 25th birthday, and their songs are still brief like it was twenty-seven years ago at their first live appearence in the abraxas club near Lausanne, Switzerland. Every song of the Giant Robots is a potential hit single, thank to their God-damned famous compositions.
The fivetett consists of Julia, Tanguy, Guy, Tania plus Michel. Legend would have it that Tanguy and Michel met on skis at rue du petit-chêne in Lausanne by crashing into a cow called Milka, which would have opened the doors to the rehearsal room of the famous local glories Les Aiglons. It’s obviously bullshit! It would also seem that Michel was trying to surf the famous wave of the Château de Glérolles by playing a piece of reverb sounded guitar. Of course there are no waves there, and Michel is a shitty surfer. Let’s assume they met in the campus radio studios in early nineties where their passion for garage rock’n’roll had no other goal than to evangelize the whole earth (and more).
Tanguy is the acknoledged handsome one of the group, and he also plays the drums whose pulsating playing launches the quivering sound of the band . Guy is the lead guitarist, plays with such force that his sound has been compared to a hundred of Fouga Magister aircrafts taking off. Michel is the lead singer and one of the most proficient rhythm guitarist whose reedy frame stands conducting center stage. Julia, 23, and Tania, 23, are the rockers in the band, playing bass and the organ.
After the debut 7’’ ‘‘Introducing…’’, the ‘‘Invasion’’ LP and the ‘‘Super Robots ’’ EP 7” which has included, for the very first time a hit song in french, they released the world acclaimed ‘‘Too Young to Know Better… Too Hard to Care’’ on the unfamous Voodoo Rhythm label. Their latest to date long play “Delightfully Refreshing’’ was released on Soundflat Records, the tittyshaking label from Cologne. Recorded in 5 days in the Toe Rag studio in London by the analogic guru Liam Watson, this album brings back the spirit of mid-60’s rock’n’roll – yéyé! 2023 will be the year of the release of their 4th LP “Fuzz You”, mixed at Jorge Explosion’s studio in Gijon, Spain with the hit single “Avanti la Macchina”, in Italian, to stick with their Latin origins. Fuzz on gents.
The Giant Robots has toured the whole Europa during all those years and are still & always ready to conquer the world (and more). The next show is around, stay tuned!
