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 HANDWRITTEN 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.
