OBEY ROBOTS is a bold new collaboration from Rat (Ned’s Atomic Dustbin) and Laura Kidd (Penfriend / She Makes War).

Described as “21st Century 90’s Indie”, our album “One In A Thousand” is out on Friday 24th February 2023 on My Big Sister Recordings.

Order direct from us

for access to the whole range of limited edition vinyl, CD, cassette, hardback books, pick tins, tees, hoodies and badges.


“Lyrically, Laura has brought her ‘A Game’ to this album, at points even reminding me of my life-long favourite lyricist, Magazine’s Howard Devoto.”

“These two artists we born to create together, I’m constantly hearing one push the other further.”

“Rat’s solo makes me wanna smash shit up, it’s a beautiful chaos.”

~ Miles Hunt (The Wonder Stuff)
