Lonely Robot is the new project from producer, guitarist and vocalist John Mitchell (Kino, It Bites, Frost*, Arena).

Backed by a rhythm section of Nick Beggs (Kajagoogoo) on bass and Craig Blundell (Pendragon) on drums, other guests include Steve Hogarth, Nik Kershaw, Heather Findlay, Kim Seviour and Peter Cox (Go West singer) and Jem Godfrey (Frost*).

Mitchell comments, "With Lonely Robot, I have a clean slate and that's very exciting, because nobody expects anything in particular. It reminds me a lot of how things were when the Kino album was done, in that no-one knew what would come out of it. Musically, the Lonely Robot album is very Proggy, but more about atmosphere than technical expertise.'
