Cyputer Comborgs

by Anbot Rodroid

"uniquely skewed take on electronic pop...well-crafted and darkly melodic. In general, the music is a weird hybrid of soaring pop music and prog-like spaciness."

Album Notes
"Space pop structures are crafted with the experience of a man who's written literally hundreds of songs in the last decade, and the phantasy lyrics of giants, gnomes, and circuitous space beings are ever present. If Kraftwerk had spent more of the '80s skateboarding in California, this might be the result. But they'd have to hire the Syd Barrett of today to write lyrics this bent." --The Portland Mercury

"...uniquely skewed take on electronic pop..."

"...really enjoyed Anbot Rodroid! lots of great musical and lyrical witticisms and fun." --Moris Tepper (guitarist w/Captain Beefheart, Tom Waits, Frank Black, etc.)

"...some of the most creative, wacked-out and inspired music of the 21st century..."--Statesman Journal

"...this GREAT band called Anbot Rodroid played. Kind of like if Daniel Johnston fronted Pere Ubu.

ANBOT RODROID is the brainchild of prolific DIY experimental/pop eccentric Peter DeGroot, aka Anbot. DeGroot is from Salem, Oregon, the city which brought you cyberpunk innovator John Shirley, warped guitar genius John Fahey and "Napoleon Dynamite" geek-star Jon Heder. Anbot Rodroid sounds a little bit like some weird cross between those three.

DeGroot has written over 1,000 songs and compositions and has home-recorded more than a dozen Anbot Rodroid albums since 2001. For "Cyputer Comborgs" the catchiest songs were selected from the back catalog and "professionally" re-recorded by some of Salem's finest musicians (the "Cyputer Comborgs"), including noted keyboardist and Willamette U. music faculty member Julian Snow:

Shane Murphy-bass (Strawberries)
Daniel Rafn-guitar, keyboards (DSR, Root Villa, Sustentacula)
Jasper Wasson-drums (Apheliotropic Orchestra)
Julian Snow-keyboards (Mill Race, Julian Snow Index)


to write a review


Kicks several varieties of ass
The sound scapes are adventureous and nastalgic at the same time. Anbot envisions the future and references the past. The lyrics are light heartedly cynical...not like anything you've heard. This is music.


This album blows my brains out and sends them to outer space.
This album blows my brains out and sends them to outer space. I love Throbbing Gristle and Beefheert, but Anbot right up there. Songs about space, farmers, body parts, goats, underwear. Great, great! Love the lyrics, weird keyboards, major league drumming. When are these guys going on a world tour?
