DescriptionSometimes I think of a world ruled by giant red, rectangular robots. The robots stand ten times taller than the tallest tree in the woods; 450m into the night sky. Their eyes blaze like cooker hobs and their joints creak of iron friction. Conquerors; they patrol the planet, and pure terror radiates as they chase humans from the cold, grey metropolises into the countryside. And yetas the mind wanders
those claws? Those three metal pincers? With such awkward impractical fingers these robots could never hold a guitar or be in a band. They could never hit drums like Moon, or pluck bass like Bootsy Collins. They would have to be producers; big fuck off red ones that hook up to synthesisers and control sequencers in their brains.
But what would these robots produce? What if they werent so mean? What if they werent so aggro? Maybe this fear is misunderstood! Maybe this radiation isnt terror! Maybe its a signal theyre sending out, searching for an answer?
This 8 track is our reply. This one goes out from ALiVE to the giant red robots with our message of peace. Our deep house grooves inviting them to the party. Don't crush us, come and join us you cuboid bastards!
