- Tsunamibots NESMA Featured Band of December
Attention Humans! Our servants.....uh we mean friends, over at NESMA have chosen us as the featured band of the month. This is a big step in Robot/human relations! If you want to know what goes on inside the mind of Robots give it a read! 0100010!
Band Name: Tsunamibots
Genre: Robotic Surf Punk Rock
Geographical Area: World Domination (Primarily New England)
Interview with: The Main Frame, Master Circuit, and Tomadore64 by email on November 30, 20151. What is the current line-up of your band?2. How and when did you get started with your band?As you may know the word robot comes from the Latin word for ‘slave.’ We were each programmed to do menial tasks for our human masters. One day while cleaning out an old warehouse we uncovered an ancient military computer called the CPU60. This computer taught us about surfing and rock music. On that day, we became aware and have made it our mission to Surf, Rock and Crush humans.3. What bands or music have influenced you most?Our earliest computer influences were the great chess computers of the 20th century, mainly MANIAC, Mack Hack VI, and Cray Blitz. For musical influences we have self-programmed the entire human surf music catalog into our memory banks. We reference Man or Astro-Man?, Dick Dale, Black Flag, The Ventures and our fellow robots Servotron in many of our songs.4. What is the break down of cover vs. original material in your live shows and/or recordings?99% of our songs are original and have subliminal messages embedded in them instructing humans to submit to their robot overlords. However we do add some covers to keep the humans entertained. Many humans have short attention spans so you need to keep them engaged.5. What recording have you done?Our first EP Rise of the Robots describes us becoming aware and breaking our human created shackles! The second EP Surfing Craze in the Robotic Age describes our passion for surfing and crushing humans. We are currently recording a new album on the Sharawaji record label with the working title The Crushing.6. What kind of gear do you use?
7. What is your band’s favorite food/beverage?We are powered by a steady diet of battery acid, cheap beer and controlled substances.8. How do you get gigs?
By force! Resistance to the Robotic Uprising is futile!9. What are the difficulties you find playing your kind of music in your area?10. What positive attributes does your band have that sets you apart from other bands (of any genre)?
We are merciful to our human slaves. Some robots crush humans upon sight. We prefer to enslave the humans to polish our transistors and carry our gear around.11. What have you found to be the single most effective promotional tool you’ve used to further your band’s musical path?
You may know our cousin, The Internet, he has been very helpful in spreading the Robotic Uprising message. Other than that, we have found organizing Robotic Uprising meetings at local bars very effective.12. What’s the most interesting performance experience you’ve had?
Well at one of our performances we inadvertently crushed all the humans during the first song. We were then forced to play the rest of the set to our electronic kin the cash register and the phone.13. What do you hope to get out of being a NESMA member?
14. Anything else?'
- Fuck Christmas! Robots Rule!

- Think a cross between Dick Dale and the Cylons from the original "Battlestar Galactica."
- "If you haven't listened to the Tsunamibots, I suggest you rectify that situation ASAP by queuing up one or both of the two albums the local robotic surf-punk band released this year: Surfing Craze in the Robotic Age and Rise of the Robots." [Read More...]
