Biography

From the burgeoning Phoenix music scene comes a band whose unmistakable sound and flamboyant style makes them, at once, supremely original and strikingly familiar. Comprised of vocalist Chris Donathon, guitar/keyboard player Hector Bagnod and live drummer Greg Rudowski, The Medic Droid encapsulate the very best elements of their electronica/new wave forefathers, while simultaneously carving their very own niche in today’s overcrowded, underwhelming music scene.

Formed by Donathon; a masterful painter and visual artist as well as a gifted vocalist; in 2006 on a lark, the positive response to his first single (“Fer Sure”) was staggering. Realizing he stumbled upon something quite special, he enlisted the help of close friends Logan and Bagnod to round out the group. Less than two short years later the band has sold nearly 50,000 singles on ITUNES and has had well over 8 million plays on their MYSPACE page.

Led by Donathon’s instantly recognizable voice and backed by Bagnod’s original and creative riffs, beats and samples, The Medic Droid’s songs are an amalgam of dance, indie, punk rock and metal. Combining vocal hooks that would make any Top 40 audience salivate, pounding bass and electronic drums, The Droid take listeners on a roller coaster ride of emotion as they beat and finesse their way through sometimes sexy, sometimes brutal, always evocative songs laced with equal parts heart, emotion and energy.

What makes their meteoric rise even more special is that their label, Phoenix’s own Modern Art Records, is a label run by musicians, for musicians. Although under the Epic Record’s umbrella, Modern Art is a DIY label with an eclectic lineup and a simple albeit grandiose goal – create a musical revolution in their humble Phoenix neighborhood that before long, the world will be unable to ignore. The leaders of that revolution are The Medic Droid.

Label head Ben Collins speaks of the band’s combination of sound and style and dubs them, “the next Duran Duran.” He also compares his label’s relationship with The Droid to the relationship forged by New Order and their label, Factory Records, some twenty-five years ago.

And although every listener will decide for him or herself who the band is reminiscent of, as their influences are as varied as the colors in one of Donathon’s many brilliant paintings (listed among those influences are Elton John, Michael Jackson, The Beach Boys, The Used, At The Drive In and Roy Orbison), one thing is abundantly clear, The Medic Droid have already and will continue to resonate with fans and music lovers across the globe.

With their first full-length album slated for a mid-2008 release, The Medic Droid and Modern Art Records are braced for even bigger things in the near future. Although if you ask the band, they seem as content playing small venues in front of a few dozen fans and friends as they do in front of seas of thousands. Donathon says, “We kinda just want to make the music we like and have fun doing it. If we get huge world wide that would be amazing but that isn’t our goal.”

For The Medic Droid, Their goal is create the music that they love and with that they’re satisfied. Connecting with an audience, regardless of size, is their sole motivation. They feel that if they do that everything else will work out. However, if they do become the biggest band in the world, nobody, except perhaps the band members themselves, will be even a little bit surprised.

Lyrics

Fer Sure

Written By: The Medic Droid

Fer sure maybe fer sure not
Fer sure eh fer sure bomb
Pulled up at a stop light did drugs on the dashboard
Look at the mess we made tonight

Kick off your stilettos
Kick off your stilettos
And fuck me in the backseat
Fuck me in the backseat
You're always falling in disguise
And always quick to compromise

Kick off your stilettos [oh yeah]
Kick off your stilettos
And fuck me in the backseat [fa-fa-fa]
Fuck me in the backseat
Fer sure maybe fer sure not
Fer sure eh fer sure bomb

This is the end of what we planned [of what we planned]
And now.

We're not falling in love
We're just falling apart [so girl let's dance the night away]
This is how the beat goes
This is how the beat goes [Just let your body go]

This is how the beat drops
This is how the beat drops [I wanna see your panties drop girl now]
All this time is wasted pretending we're in love
But that's alright cause you know
I love being with you and seeing you cry

So don't let go-o-o
Well don't let go, no-o
Don't let go

Fer sure maybe fer sure not
Fer sure eh fer sure bomb
Pulled up at a stop light did drugs on the dashboard
Look at the mess we made tonight

Kick off your stilettos
Kick off your stilettos
And fuck me in the backseat
Fuck me in the backseat
You're always falling in disguise
And always quick to compromise

Kick off your stilettos [oh yeah]
Kick off your stilettos
And fuck me in the backseat [fa-fa-fa]
Fuck me in the backseat
Fer sure maybe fer sure not
Fer sure eh fer sure bomb

This is the end of what we planned [of what we planned]
And now.

We're not falling in love
We're just falling apart [so girl let's dance the night away]
This is how the beat goes
This is how the beat goes [Just let your body go]

This is how the beat drops
This is how the beat drops [I wanna see your panties drop girl now]
All this time is wasted pretending we're in love
But that's alright cause you know
I love being with you and seeing you cry

So don't let go-o-o
Well don't let go, no-o
Don't let go

No jkjkjk lololol
I heart your fucking makeup
Oh my god I love your hair
Is that a new tattoo?
Did that piercing fucking hurt?
No jkjkjk lololol

We're not falling in love
We're just falling apart [so girl let's dance the night away]
This is how the beat goes
This is how the beat goes [Just let your body go]

This is how the beat drops
This is how the beat drops [I wanna see your panties drop girl now]
All this time is wasted pretending we're in love
But that's alright cause you know
I love being with you and seeing you cry

So don't let go-o-o [All this time is wasted]
Well don't let go, no-o [Pretending we're in love]
But that's alright cause you know
I love being with you and seeing you cry
But that's alright

The Killer Anna

Written By: The Medic Droid

She walks in as I'm walking out
Should I try this once again? Should I try this once again?

And as we kiss I remember how it felt
To fall in love when I was young
But I can't get that feeling back

She's got a killers grin on
Or maybe I'm just too jaded now
My god the killer is waiting

Don't say you care I know you don't
And I won't leave I'll try and pretend
And I won't leave I'll try and pretend

Cause we've got nothing to lose
But time so here we go again

I know you've been patient
But I can't stop from thinking
That when this ends
We'll be the worst of enemies

And now, and as she leaves
I remember times we shared
Can we try this once again?
Cause baby you're just what I need

And as the night grows cold
Well hold me tight, don't let me go

We got it all wrong but baby we'll figure it out
As you say that you care, I know you don't

And I wont leave I'll try and pretend
And I wont leave I'll try and pretend

Cause we've got nothing to lose
But time so here we go again

Dry your eyes, and come home
I feel so alone, and I do know

This is done now, but we will try until the bitter end

But we never made it
Like a bad dream I can't get out
And I can't take another second without you here
We tried time and over as it died
Maybe I'm the one to blame here
Girl just know I love you too
Now we're done so here we go again

I know that I was wrong (Repeat)
