About the Robots
ROBOTS IN DISGUISE are fronted by DEE PLUME (guitar and vocals) and SUE DENIM (bass and vocals). Part riot grrl princesses, part monsters of DIY musical mayhem, this maverick electro-indie-rock-dance duo has a reputation for fashion-forward style and energetic shows where Dee’s guitar and Sue’s grooving bass lines dance over chunky electronic beats and tell-it-like-it-is lyrics.
The Robots first met at a Le Tigre gig and quickly discovered a shared love of girl punk bands and so started writing music together.
Snapped up by French label, Recall, ROBOTS IN DISGUISE released their eponymous debut album in 2004, creating a real buzz throughout Europe after which they took their crazed live show on tour. Their dancefloor killer 12” single, BOYS, was released with remixes by Hidden Agenda, SIN, The Servant and Tommy Hools and won over a host of fans including Boy George and Peaches.
After a US release and tour in 2005, ROBOTS IN DISGUISE released GET RID!, their sharp, snazzy electrofunk album on Recall in France, Anorak Supersport in Benelux countries and Australia’s Shock Records. Their standout single, DJ’s GOT A GUN, enjoyed heavy rotation across Europe and the States. GET RID! was taken up by President Records in the UK in ‘06, with its single, TURN IT UP, featured on US hit show, Ugly Betty.
ROBOTS IN DISGUISE have graced the pages of numerous fashion magazines donning their discopunk mod look and have also acted in BBC2′s The Mighty Boosh as evil alter egos, The Electro Girls and The Goth Girls.
The ROBOTS IN DISGUISE then released their 3rd album, WE’RE IN THE MUSIC BIZ, produced by Chris Corner (Sneaker Pimps/ I Am X) in Berlin. Sharp, dancey, tongue-in-cheek and frequently impossibly catchy, WE’RE IN THE MUSIC BIZ includes the hit singles, THE SEX HAS MADE ME STUPID, WE’RE IN THE MUSIC BIZ and THE TEARS.
This release was followed by much acclamation from fans and press and the ROBOTS IN DISGUISE embarked on an extensive tour which took them around Europe and to Japan where they featured on stage at the much celebrated ‘BRITISH ANTHEMS’ festival.
The ROBOTS IN DISGUISE are currently penning their highly anticipated 4th album, which promises to be just as exhilarating and zealous as ever!
