Since its founding in 2003, Lousy Robot has grown into a favorite of indie music lovers in Albuquerque and throughout the Southwest. Their music has been heard on television programming as varied as MTV, The Travel Channel, HGTV, Bravo, Animal Planet and Current TV, the on-line series The Scare Game and multiple television commercials. Building on this success they are set to release their 3rd full length recording, Hail the Conquering Fool, in early 2011 with the help of Hit Records International.
Lousy Robot's songs are cynical, heartfelt and tinged with despair. These boys are happy to sit you down and tell you what has gone wrong in their lives, but you’ll have to pour a drink for them and have one yourself. The pain and regret are not sugarcoated, and neither is their noisy, post-punk music. These songs are the soundtracks to the dramas of lost love and misguided anger, but with better hooks and a 20-20 hindsight view of matters.
Once again collaborating with John Dufilho (The Deathray Davies, Apples in Stereo) at Salim Nourallah’s Pleasantry Lane Studio in Dallas, Hail The Conquering Fool builds on the foundations of the band's first two releases, The Strange and True Story of Your Life and Smile Like You Are Somewhere Else, extending the group’s collection of power-pop darkness into a new area. Continuing Lousy Robot's tradition of inviting special guests to work with them in the studio, Jason Garner (Paper Chase, Deathray Davies) and Knoxville's John Baker join a cast of characters that in the past have included Cory Watson of Black Tie Dynasty and John Lefler of Dashboard Confessional.
