The Robot Group in Austin Texas has been around for a very long time. Since 1989 according to some of the older members of the group. I was still in high school and in California at that time, so I have to take their word for it. There are videos of interviews and news footage from the late 80s and early 90s, so we know they’ve been around at least that long. As any group will, TRG has had it’s ups and downs, its periods of waxing and waning.
