Our names are Voytek and Jared but you might know us as My Favorite Robot. We were born in Warsaw and Montreal and grew up in Montreal. In our childhood our idols were Post Punk bands, because they had the best hair. We met in 2005 at a loft party and the rest is history. In 2008 we decided to start a label together and make weird music. Since then we have toured the world and lasted longer than most marriages. One of the best gigs we played was BPM Festival MFRR showcase at Cannibal Royal in Playa Del Carmen in 2012. It was so much fun that there was a tequila shortage for weeks and a baby boom in the area 9 months later. One of the best gigs we have been to was The Cure’s Prayer tour in 1989. We loved The Cure, Pixies, Radiohead and Ride.
Now we live in Toronto and Montreal with gray hair. We meet every time we have a gig and for court supervised visits. We sometimes argue when Voytek drinks, but then he promises to stop. We enjoy coca cola and airport burgers a lot. We can spend hours not contacting each other. One of our favorite places to visit is any hotel bed, because we old. On weekdays we work on music or hide from society and on weekends we usually get our fix of society. Our favorite songs at the moment are Pink Horror – Entschuldigung Remix (My Favorite Robot Records) & Theus Mago – Ella (Il Est Vilaine Remix) (Ombra International). Some films we watched lately and liked was Killing of a Sacred Deer & Son of Rambow. The last series we watched and loved was The Alienist.
We are very inspired by Salt Bae. Our dream is to find the Lee Foss LA Lab Monsanto rap online again. Our worst nightmare is the same as above. We love to hate and hate to love. We are addicted to pizza, we just cannot stop until we pop. We get totally fucked up, when we promise ourselves we won’t. Local Suicide reminds us of a couple cool cats.
Tomorrow we get back on the road. Next month we do it again. Next year babies for one, babes for the other. In 10 years we hope to still have hair.
If we weren’t Canadian, we would be Mexican. If our lives were a Hollywood movie, Jacinto and Jacinto would have the main roles, because our dogs are more interesting and cuter than us. If we were a car, we would be a KITT from Nightrider (1982 Pontiac Firebird). If we were an animal, we would be a beautiful unicorn that eats humans. If we were a drug ,we would be a viagra knockoff that’s a placebo. If we were an invention, we would be the square wheel. If we were an object, we would be a Rimowa. If we could date ourselves, we would be single. If we could play with anyone it would be Fad Gadget. We would like to collaborate with Ivan Smagghe. If we had only one wish, it would be unlimited wishes. We would never hurt a fly, because we’re focusing on humanity.
Our word of advice to the reader would be to listen carefully.
