Ditch your drummer and replace him with a robot – that's what Jay Vance did, with Captured!


Quick, someone send this video to the other bandmates in Babyshambles, the apparently nameless ones which could live next door to us and we wouldn’t know the difference! A new musical direction for the band if ever I saw one – if musician Jay Vance can replace his drug-addled bandmates with robots, then surely a ‘bot could replace Pete Doherty? They’ve already got the vacant expressions down pat, after all.

As you can see in the video above, replacing your band with robots can work flawlessly, as Vance first discovered back in 1997 tinkering with scrap metal products. Not just scrap metal anymore, they’re Captured, and you can catch them live from this Autumn apparently.
