ROBBING MILLIONS Short Info

Robbing Millions digs deep into pop history, winking to innovators as Can and Robert Wyatt, but also sharing a love for the psychedelic pop brilliance of The Flaming Lips and the fuzzy slacker pop of Pavement, with the jazz background of the band members carefully shining through.

It’s spring 2013 and Lucien Fraipont - self-declared dictator of the Brussels based 5-piece and until then only known as a guitar virtuoso in the Belgium jazz impro scene- decides to throw 6 demos online under the title ‘Ages and Sun’.

The tracks immediately buzzed their way through Belgium and France for the past months, with Robbing Millions performing at several prestigious festivals just months after their start-up (Les Nuits Botaniques, Les Ardentes, Dour festival, Boomtown and Deep In The Woods) and also playing impressive support slots for Palma Violets, Girls in Hawaii and Babyshambles.

There’s something very visual about RM’s songs. Imagine Beck soundtracking a Monthy Python inspired Looney Tunes episode without being laugh-out-loud funny.
