Biography

There are two artists named Giant Robot:
1) A project by American guitarist Buckethead, releasing only one album in the 90’s
2) A Finnish electro/rock/dance group

1) Buckethead’s Giant Robot featuring the six-foot-something guitar virtuoso pickin’, grinnin’ and slappin’ on the guitar, Brian “Brain” Mantia bashin’ and bangin’ on the drums, and Pete Scaturro behind the scenes, bringing the madness together. The trio released their self-titled, 13 track debut album under NTT records in 1996, featuring classic horror movie samples, epic guitar versus drum combat ditties, and some of the most memorable guitar playing Buckethead fans have ever had the pleasure of hearing. The album has since gone out of print, yet occasionally pops up on various auction sites. This is the trio’s only release, yet Mantia has featured on several of Buckethead’s albums, including Colma, released in 1998.

2) Giant Robot from Helsinki, Finland started out in the mid-90’s as a loose collective intent on 20-minute dub jams. On the last records their sound was an elegant, well-balanced blend of electronic and handcrafted music ranging from hip-hop to dub, funk to r’n’b and mesmeric rock to techminimalism. They are rather inactive at the moment, but the group has given birth to a more rap-oriented collective of Finnish musicians called Giant Räbät.
