about

We are pleased to submit our proposals for the nullification of disruptive creative elements in future societies. Our crack team are currently working hard on new technologies which will bring about total submission on a level only previously found in substance abusers. It is our intention to create a mind controlling device so powerful that even people of above average intelligence will be unable to deprive themselves of it’s mood altering capabilities for more than five minute periods. People of all ages will harbour many delusions of their own importance in the universe whilst secretly being stripped of the desire to leave the house. The mundane trivia of daily life, celebrity tittle tattle and an almost fanatical celebration of consumer goods shall replace outdated notions of freedom of expression and leave the user devoid of inspiration. Our key areas for complete nullification are as follows,
Popularity
In the twenty first century popularity or the illusion of being popular will be of utmost importance.

lyrics

I’m just the kind of guy that everybody seems to mind.
When you’re least expecting it I’ll sneak up from behind.
I need all your attention now. I need it really bad.
If you’re doing slightly worse than me I’m always really glad.
You’ll always hear me coming even in a crowded bar.
You’ll try to move away from me but won’t get very far.

Welcome to my world. My mindless popularity contest.
So good in my world. That mindless popularity contest.

I’m dying to impress you now my favourite occupation.
What d’you mean you have to leave? Your train is at the station?
Stay right here and have a beer. Don’t ask about the wife.
Listen while I boast about my fascinating life.

Welcome to my world. My mindless popularity contest.
So good in my world. That mindless popularity contest.

My new Girlfriend's expecting me.
She’s young and hot and Asian.
Every time I talk to her it ends in litigation.
It’s getting late I’m feeling great.
You just want to get home.
If I didn’t take so many drugs, I’d still be in the zone.

Welcome to my world. My mindless popularity contest.
So good in my world. That mindless popularity contest.
