    Well, if you check out Electronic Apeman from the new Karl Bartos album, I think you will get a nice surprise. It is about monkeys and robots.

    He does not however use the word Monnkybots. ;(

    hmm, yes, well... i don't think it would be a good idea to let the children near them... especially when they throw FunFeces(TM) it may get messy and its quite toxic.

    OK, I was listening to Elektrodelica Disc two this morning and something Claude said in that interview occured to me that it might be relevant in this discussion:

    He said something along the lines that he draws a lot of his inspiration for writing songs from seeing the suffering of others - be that either empathizing with them or try to work out their problem for them in song. Just something to think on...

    Jet - You should read this book i'm reading now called "Black Vinyl, White Powder" . While its about the music business, there's a lot of great anecdotes and stories about musicians lives (ups and downs) including some about how and what inspires them to write songs. Its a british book written by Simon Napier Bell, one time manager of Marc Bolan, Wham! and Japan.

    you want inspiration by seeing someone who has suffered? watch this mpeg of Adam Ant from just last month:

    From www.adam-ant.net :
    "To aid the Dian Fossey Highland Gorilla Fund, Adam and Boz Boorer are presently recording a remake of the single, Stand and Deliver but this time with changed lyrics to Save the Gorillas."

    Well to get back to the Monkeybots(TM), I was wondering, are they going to be given weapons, maybe a kung-fu grip??? My nephew would probably love one of these things this year for Christmas

    I agree to an extent that artist in general need to step out of the box when it comes to writing songs and not have every song be a love song..

    But to be honest with you, to connect with most listeners, they want to hear something they can connect with, something that they may be going thru, and there is a lot of hurt and suffering out in the world, whether its love lost/found, emotional pain, depression or anything else that people can relate to, i'll write it..

    Now I have written about other topics, but the stronger ones are the most serious topics, and yes that is about relationships, emotions, people in general..

    Thats only my opinion..
