Biography

The James Robot story started in 2006 with the song 'Ghost Train,' an upbeat alternative country/rock song inspired by the likes of Old Crow Medicine Show and The Strokes. Other early songs included 'London is a Prison,' which reflected a heavy guitar sound influenced by The Ramones and The Smiths.

Playing gigs throughout 2008 with drummer Andy cemented the James Robot London following and their unique sound was completed when Frank joined on lead guitar and synths. James Robot's early alternative country/rock has blended with the harder electronic rock of James Robot today to create a band with huge variety in their songs. From the fragile melodic beauty of 'Memory of Youth' to the threatening 'Armegeddon,' the James Robot sound refuses to be pinned down.

2009 was a landmark year for James Robot; playing 15+ live shows at famous London venues such as ULU, The Old Queens Head and 333 Club reflected the buzz generated by the band during the year across London.
