Underground music stalwarts The Speed Of Sound release their latest video Zombie Century. John Armstrong (guitars/vocals/songwriter) explains:
“Zombies have moved out of their fictional cultural niche and become increasingly fashionable over the last 20 years. Do people identify with them? Do zombies hold up a mirror to expose the reality of everyday life? Are zombies an aspirational spiritual goal? Is it just easier to carry on without thinking about it?
So far the 21st century seems to be a century of unthinking, or misdirected thinking.
Of clickbait and soundbite driven instant outrage responses and knee-jerk reactions. Where ‘research’ amounts to reading some random words put together by a robot language generator and where deliberately malicious contrarian opinions are held up as fact without supporting evidence and no care how that might align with extreme ideologies. This is a Zombie century, bereft of any intellectual purpose or meaning merely dragging its feet onwards; the governmental inaction, head burying and denial of existential issues facing the planet is another facet of this.
Instead, this vigorous and punchy stomping beat is the opposite of the tired zombie shuffle, instead it is a call to action; to wake up and smell the English Breakfast Tea.“
Zombie Century is taken from the ‘Museum Of Tomorrow’ album: https://orcd.co/thespeedofsound-bsr and also included on the new Big Stir Records compilation Stir The Cauldron released on September 29th.
