Covers a moment in time when Balcony TV had the legendary Buzzcocks on the balcony. Have a look at some rare behind the scenes footage of it all. After helping the Buzzcocks out, I paid a quick visit to Berlin and played in a huge old theatre. Crazy experience. Soundtrack is Yumeji`s Theme by Shigeru Umebayashi

Robotnik is Chris Morrin, a highly challenged boy from Dublin. Robotnik's music is a mental adventure of pop, electronic beats and melodic musings on relationships, fantasies and twenty-something-dom. Robotnik has been
extremely busy with the release of his critically acclaimed debut album 'Pleasant Sqaure' in 2008. In 2009 he has been excersising his Devo-esque performances alongside the likes of Laura Marling and Crystal Castles whilst enjoying regular airplay on MTV, has remarkably re-written the Pat The Baker jingle and is currently DJing on the
all new digital radio station RTE 2XM.
