I had a fun time talking to David Mendez of the Film Noobs podcast about Robotica Destructiva and other projects. See it here:

The Construction of Destruction
Check out this short documentary about my fellow bandmates and cohorts, The Killer Robots and the making of our latest movie Robotica Destructiva.
My newest feature film, Robotica Destructiva premieres at The Enzian January 6th, 2023 as part of their Freaky Fridays series.
Strobo, Max, Auto and Trog once again find themselves hurtling from one adventure to another but this time they are antagonists to a trio of android warrior sisters activated to retrieve a doomsday device from them. Amber Belko, Torie Martin and Kristal Theron take on the roles of the warrior sisters, Mytra, Azalla and Luna.
The movie combines practical costumes, effects and people with digital sets, spaceships and environments. It was a lot of fun to make and we think you’ll have a lot of fun watching it. Look for a streaming release sometime in Spring 2023.

New song, new video! Frankenstein, Nosferatu and a Werewolf race through the backwoods of Florida upsetting a fish creature and a mummy. Special appearances by The Bride, an angry witch, some killer bees, cows and an alien. Song available on Spotify and other music streaming services.
Electro Psycho Transmutation Cop
Check out the new music video for my new synth song Electro Psycho Transmutation Cop. An imaginary soundtrack to a world of cyborg cops and cannibal mutoids.
Animated Music Video “Depressurization”
Here’s a music video I did for The Killer Robots song, “Depressurization” sung by Samuel Williams AKA Strobo. Kudos to Mike McGowan AKA Max for providing drum patterns and Charles Harris AKA Trog for being there in spirit!
The animation is a combination of After Effects, Lightwave 3D and some live action background crowds.
Looking forward to more animation projects in the future!
Conquering the Airwaves on Channel 1,235
In October of 2009, The Killer Robots appeared on Daytime TV, a nationally syndicated morning show. After receiving a request by an old friend of Mike “Max” McGowan to appear on the show, we began work in anticipation of our television debut. Our manager Ross “Captain Zonar” Parker drilled us through many rehearsals of our chosen single, the Killer Robots “Theme Song.” When not practicing, Samuel “Strobo” Williams set about constructing a large robot for Charles “Trog” Harris to fight while the rest of us performed our song.
The fateful day arrived and we set out for Tampa in the evening so that we could make it to the studio on time in the morning. The production was exciting and surreal. We shared a dressing room with several angry looking dogs in Halloween costumes (please see video below). The pets were really nice though and we traded war stories about the travails of show business.
The performance finally arrived and we blasted through our set. We were a little excited though and came in a little too quick. The producer came out and asked us to stretch it out. We went for another take while Trog demolished the giant robot costume worn by his brother, Mike Harris.
After we were finished, the producer hurried out of the control room and exclaimed, “That was so horrible it was amazing!” I laughed and explained, “Our manager tells us that all the time!”
It was a great experience and the production team seemed to be having fun with all of the strangeness. Our manager, Ross was amazing and moved around the studio like a tornado keeping everyone updated and our performance on a smooth and steady course. Ross unfortunately passed away a year later after a long fight with cancer but I will always remember his raucous laughter and the upbeat energy he brought to that day.
Here’s the clip from the show:
