The concept of the Real Dolls came from rapper, Rod Hotly. Inspired by a Frank Zappa interview where an ailing Frank wondered why nobody was writing songs about all the fantastic cyber sex gadgetry and all the other bizarre freaky shit that came with it in the 80’s! Hotly joined forces with Manc Japanese rapper Yoshi, production-savvy Real Dave and world-class scratch DJ, Peter Parker (Fingathing) to form the Real Dolls.
Falling in step with the likes of N.A.S.A, Santigold & M.I.A, they are a party band, they like to make you move with their bold, fresh mix of hip-hop, electro, punk and the J-pop sound of ParaPara to make PRONK! _or sex punk_their own brand of music.
Live they are in their element with shows constantly changing and energy levels always pushed to 11. Entertainment is high on the agenda as this 4 piece join forces with Veba (Groove Armada, Rae & Christian) & Zoe Hooker to make effortlessly cool pop music!
