ROBOT PARADE VOL. 1: THE VACUUM CLEANERS & HIGH TINY HAIRS Split 7″

We couldn’t resist! Following the immense success of the Monster Parade series, which introduced three split 7″ records showcasing six bands, we’re thrilled to unveil our latest project: ROBOT PARADE! Just like its predecessor, this series consists of three volumes of split 7 inches, with each volume showcasing two bands and featuring two songs from each. Once all three volumes are assembled, they will collectively unveil a single illustration of… you guessed it, a robot parade. How fantastic is that?

For the inaugural volume of this exciting series, we’ve selected The Vacuum Cleaners and High Tiny Hairs.

THE VACUUM CLEANERS
The origin of The Vacuum Cleaners, a garage rock band, can be traced back to a playful pun initiated by Keith Streng, guitarist of The Fleshtones from New York. This pun quickly evolved into a musical duo with a thematic emphasis on vacuum cleaners. Keith assumed the role of drummer, while Ludwig Dahllöf led on guitar and vocals. Their debut performance at Melodybox in Hägersten, south of Stockholm, following just an hour of rehearsal, left them hungry for more. The band expanded with the inclusion of Peder Carlsson on saxophone and Björn Martin on slide guitar. In 2022, Dave Mann from Vipers joined as their bassist, further strengthening their lineup.

Keith Streng – Drums
Dave Mann – Bass
Ludwig Raoul François Dahllöf – Lead Guitar and Vocals
Björn Martin – Slide Guitar
Peder Carlsson – Saxophone, Organ, Harp and Vocals

HIGH TINY HAIRS
High Tiny Hairs is a psychedelic garage quartet hailing from Minneapolis, MN – USA. High Tiny Hairs is the brainchild of the prolific singer-songwriter Benjamin Bachman. Bachman draws inspiration from his formative years in the American Midwest and his time residing in the Tarragona area of Spain. High Tiny Hairs’ sound blends dreamy psychedelic garage with irresistibly catchy pop hooks. Bachman’s music and lyrics are often praised for their mesmerizing elegance and poetic darkness, conjuring a hazy, late-night rendezvous with his own ghosts.
