Image Gallery: Robotic and literal heavy metal band rocks NYC

Tuesday, November 12, German rock band "Compressorhead" performed for crowds in Union Square, NYC. The three band members (Fingers, Bones, and Stickboy) are 5 feet tall and made from scrap metal. Their function is made possible by electro pneumatics with behind the scenes help using a Midi controller for music. This is the bands first time in New York and previously played at Austrailia's Big Day Out concert event this past January. Compressorhead has been pre-programmed to play a wide range of rock songs, with their motor functions on stage controlled by the backstage crew.
