On a quiet street in the leafy 'burbs of Hamilton, mad scientist and music fanatic Greg Locke set about building The Trons, a touring band of robots made out of old Meccano, number 8 wire and nuts and bolts.

This fully automated group bangs out tinny rock'n'roll originals, all with the flick of a switch, but managing a band of robots is not without its challenges.
