This Gigantic Robot Kills : MC Lars

It's 'Ska Sunday' here on 101 Songs About Robots, and what better way to celebrate than with a chunk of that modern punky pop the kids call ska? This song may well be a long way from the authentic sixties ska that laid the foundations for rocksteady and reggae, but it's got the jump and the jiggle and the jaunty brass, and it's bang up to date with a bad ass rap.

This Gigantic Robot Kills is written & performed by MC Lars and features Aquabats frontman MC Bat Commander singing the chorus, along with LA based third wave ska band Suburban Legends providing the trumpety jumpety backing track. Taken from his 2009 album of the same name, it's MC Lars with This Gigantic Robot Kills.

I might be back later on with another song for Ska Sunday, or I might be back next week, but right now... I'm off for a bath.
