Robots 7"
By: Jeff Liberty
Billy Ray Cyborg are a Moncton, New Brunswick, Canadian Punk Rawk band of veterans from the fertile ground of Punk Rawk music in Moncton. The band consists of several Moncton staple punk bands including members of Hope, Fear of Lipstick and Secret Agent.. Members include Eric Daigle (vocals), Dana Robertson (Guitar), Tom Antle (Drums) and Kevin Jean (bass) to round out the quartet. This is for fans of The Dead Kennedys, and the Descendents just to name a few. The songs have a very strong melodic sensibility with a dash of hardcore and power-pop making it a great party record that you can sing along too.... The vibe of all the songs are executed with an urgency that are both rousing and playful with not a week song among "Robot".. I talked to guitarist Dana briefly about the release and asked him what was a highlight of the band thus far? " Opening for Jello Biafra And The Guantanamo School of Medicine in Halifax".. "We are also doing a couple shows with The Real Mckenzies ( http://www.myspace.com/therealmckenziess) which will be alot of fun"...Dana added... What are you currently listening to? I have not been crazy about anything in years,almost a decade so I always go back to my old favorites, although I just discovered this band the Red Dons that I am really excited about. "Their current release is called "Fake Meets failure"...
