2004: hot action! (lp)
In 2004, My Robot Friend's debut "Hot Action!" emerged from New York City's electronic underground. The album spent several months in the CMJ charts and hit the top 20 electronic albums on iTunes sales charts in several countries. An eclectic party album, "Hot Action!" features songs in a variety of styles from disco to electro to blues to rockabilly.

Its most talked about track is a Pet Shop Boys pastiche aptly titled We're the Pet Shop Boys. An underground hit, it brought My Robot Friend to new audiences when the Pet Shop Boys themselves covered it and released it as a b-side. And as if that wasn't mainstream enough, Robbie Williams put out a version on his chart-topping album Rudebox in 2006.

"Hot Action!" was re-released as a digital-only deluxe edition in 2009 on Worried Rainbow Records. The new package includes unreleased tracks from the "Hot Action!" recording sessions and several remixes.
