Buffet vs The Robots (#50)

Hello hello!

Last month we had a robot themed show, which you can listen to here. This was inspired by Jenny’s work with Playful Leeds around the theme of #secretrobots – there may be more robotic fun to be had over the coming months, so check them out on Twitter!

Anyroad, it meant lots of fun digging out themed music, and we reckon we played quite a good mix – this is it:

1. BRIAN LE BARTON – Threshold (8 Bit)
2. BEASTIE BOYS – Intergalactic
3. MARNIE STERN – Year of the Glad
4. IMANI HEKIMA – The Robots’ Rebellion
5. GRANDADDY – Jed the Humanoid
6. THE JULIE RUIN – Oh Come On
7. BEING 747 – Do the Maths
8. JOHNNY TERRIS – Bionic Fembot Mix
9. A.C.TEMPLE – Miss Sky
10. JANELLE MONAE – Cybertronic
11. NADINE SHAH – Dreary Town
13. SQURL – Pink Dust
14. ELO –  ‘Yours Truly, 2095’
15. KRAFTWERK – We are the Robots

And here’s a video for the Bionic Fembot Mix

The next show is on 14th July at 7pm – we’re putting on a Fantasy Festival! Who would be in your line-up? Let us know!
