School for Robots : Bruce Haack

Quite possibly my favourite robot song so far is School for Robots by one of the unsung pioneers of electronic music; Bruce Haack. Taken from his 1968 LP, The Way Out Record for Children, this is a dance along song, so listen carefully and move to the music.

This is only one of a number of songs about robots by Bruce Haack that I'll be posting. I could waffle on at length about the man himself and his pioneering work with electronic music, but for those who are interested, here's a wiki link. There's also a DVD documentary called HAACK: The King of Techno, which is well worth a look if you're interested in early electronic music.
