the machines are our friends

Here are two songs with yr basic robot-voice vocals. One, from 1966, actually features a guy doing the robot voice without the aid of any electronics (and I wouldn’t want to be his throat afterwards). The other, from Devo about a decade later, does feature electronics…but there are no humans involved! (Well, I think Devo might wish that had been true…)

Bent Bolt & the Nuts “Mechanical Man” (MGM single, 1966)
