Making Tea for Robots

Who / what are Making Tea for Robots? Good question. We are still trying to find out.

What we know so far is that Making Tea for Robots (or MT4R as they are known in their remix capacity), appear to be obsessed with analogue synthesizers, early drum machines and all sorts of analogue equipment. So much so, that in their own world they ideally would like to release their music on 8-Track cartridge or failing that VHS. Not very practical, but then again they don't get out nearly as much as they should.

They have been recording some tunes (in their laboratory) for the last couple of years, mainly during their lunchtimes (and when they are not working on various pieces of old, broken and often obselete analogue machinery - Studer tape machines anyone?). They also embrace new (i.e. anything later than 1981) technology with their occassional off-kilter remix - loyal followers may recall the wonderful Medieval Disco remix of The Rowan Amber Mill vs Emily Jones cover of Are Friends Electric? that they provided as the AA side for that release.

Luckily, in between fixing said tape machines, they had found time to record a collection of tunes, and, at time of writing they are finishing off the tunes for a release on the Millersounds label sometime later in 2017.

What do they tunes sound like - we hear you ask? Well they sound like they are on the analogue side of the whole analogue / digital debate. They sound modular. They sound Radiophonic and they sound library. Not sure if that helps. They sound like they are locked in to TV broadcasts on weekday mornings in the mid to late 1970s. Does that help? Basically, stay tuned for some snippets of tunes they will be letting slip out in due course, and you'll be able to judge for yourself.

If you want to keep up with what Making Tea for Robots are getting up to (when they are not making tea for robots), then check them out on their new and practically unused Making Tea for Robots FaceBook page. They promise to start using it and will be posting things of interest (within their own narrow fields of interest, that is).
