THE EXTREME ROCK OPERA
ROCK N ROLL IS DEAD…
BUT NOT FOR EVERYONE!
It is the year 2059. Plastic pop reigns supreme and unchallenged. Music written by neuro-algorithms and performed by genetically engineered pop groups dominates the world, obliterating all other forms of music. It’s as if Elvis, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC never happened. Rock ‘n’ Roll is dead!…
…but who cares? On the eve of their sell-out world tour, the BIG ROCK playboys are poised to become the most successful music act in the world. Every computer-engineered vocal harmony, every synchronised whiplash head turn, every bio-matched merchandise pack is ready to burst into life. Everything will be perfect.
Too perfect. Deep underground, a movement is gaining strength. Small pockets of activists gather around a worn cassette copy of back in black; a jerry-rigged acoustic guitar with some hand written chords to smoke on the water; a denim jacket with the sleeves cut off. A bad seed is taking root and nourished by these threads of classic 20th century Rock ‘n’ Roll. It will grow and evolve into a living breathing creature. A creature hell-bent on claiming back all that has been lost to the plastic princes of pop.
