about

Part of a duo album that Trip and I have talked about doing for years (I talk to pretty much every musician I like about doing duo records... sometimes they actually happen)

We actually recorded TWO different projects - this one was done 'my way', with all the freewheeling improv goodness that that entails. One was done Trip's way, with commensurate amounts of organisation, wikkid programming, structure and actual songs!

The comparison between the two gives a good indication of what we do, and how we inspire each other to new musical destinations.

lyrics

Imaginary Robot Ninja Assistant.

Who doesn’t have an imaginary robot ninja assistant? Fixing stuff, being awesome, ass-kicking when needed, and, uhm, assisting...

When I finally get my real Robot Ninja Assistant, it will sing like this track.

And I’d understand every word it sang.

This is how all robots should sing.

It’s a love song.

Nowhere near as dark as it sounds to us.

Robot harmony is different, y’see, not based on dodgy fudged physics. Theirs is is essence of rock ‘n’ roll.

And ninjas.
