ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Dingbotz have created a groundbreaking rock opera in "Kidd Radar" -- a fun-filled sci-fi saga told in 20 songs and narration, studded with bizarre events, sexual exuberance, and adult wit. The full epic will unfold over five albums.

The Dingbotz sound like Lady Gaga hooked up with John Lennon and Bob Dylan in a time machine to spawn a love child who sings 23rd century lyrics to hooks that will make you want to sex a giant.. We’ve been influenced by a variety of artists: Arcade Fire, Bjork, the Shins, Regina Spektor, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, Abba, the Pet Shop Boys, Sonic Youth, David Byrne, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Bartok, Stockhauzen, Kurt Weill, Richard Rodgers, and Captain Beefheart. We like to inject humor, sex and surreal deviance into our material.

The main characters of our rock opera are Kidd Radar and his girlfriend Ka. Kidd finds himself plunged into adventure when he is whisked away by an alien robot girl in her UFO. Back on earth, Ka leads an underground rebellion against the dictator Dr. DNA, who wants to redesign the human race.

Our songs range over various genres -- alt rock, alt pop, poignant ballads, chamber pop dance beats, and bizarre novelties. We're very strict about song choice: it HAS to sound like a top-ten single, otherwise it doesn't get produced.

If you are a natural rebel, a wild libertine, a transgressive intellectual -- or if you have two heads -- you might want the Dingbotz to land inside your cerebellum. For all you know, you might be a Dingbot yourself.

Feel free to check out the Dingbotz on CD Baby and ReverbNation.com.

Sometime, somehow, somewhere Dingbotmania will hit Planet Earth like a sackful of deranged aliens. Get ready.

Do your ding.

a hit
Very funny and kinda sweet and totally insane. A great gift for all your spacy friends.

this is killer stuff. a cult-following has been formed. waiting for the next one
i called a small group of my closest friends together to form a circle around my yamaha 600 watt system attached to an orange extension cord that reached out to the deck in front of my house.

the sounds of overhead planes turning towards LAX, the screetching of the sharp-shinned hawks in the hills, my one toilet making a kinda steam enjin sound lately (someone said it might be the water pressure valve gone bust, but who the hell knows for sure?), the waves roaring on the beach and my wife chatting on the phone made it difficult to find the right moment to press the play button.

after about 35 minutes, when the moment seemed right, i finally pressed play and we began listening to KIDD RADAR. of course we were transformed to another world instantly. one lady friend almost fainted. another friend had a little bit of foam drooling out of the side of his mouth. my wife got off the phone and, for a brief moment, looked like she might not complain about anything for at least the duration of the performance. i looked over to where my 5 maltese dogs were sitting and saw them actually mouthing the words as if they had memorized them by heart.

what an impact this album had on our community. after hearing this cd, people began selling their houses and immigrating to god knows where. local politicians got together, had meetings and planned something. people began wearing cheap imitation space suits on the beaches. as you might guess, the list goes on.
