School For Robots is an experimental rock project created and led by Curtis Killian. This amorphous and evolving rock blob features some of Boston's finest talents performing an eclectic and vast array of material. Current members include Derek van Wormer on bass and Frank Hegyi on drums, as well as sporadic collusions with local Boston bands like Left Hand Does and A Bit Much.
What started out as a forced dance ritual to the eponymous 1968 children's song by Canadian electronic music pioneer Bruce Haack quickly became a fitting moniker for a series of DIY bedroom recordings Curtis began creating in 2004. Through obsessive overdubbing and crude sonic experimentation, an approach that continues to this day, Curtis garnered enough interest from like-minded individuals to form a band, which would eventually go on to form a single person and then a band again.
Meanwhile, songs gestated in this viscus nebula and grew over the years into the demented angular protrubrances you hear today. The recordings are still born out of a raw DIY approach toward sonic expansion, and released in a fury via the Song-A-Week blog found on this here site.
School for Robots prides iteslf on its live shows, one of the finest cheap optional audio entertainment experiences found in Boston today. Every set is full of surprises, and no two sets are alike. Commencing forced dance ritual!
