Play 2012 / The Best Of The Year


“These people are really no better than us. There’s something better out there than their lie, and our worship of it. An unlikely geek is cooking up a revolutionary sound in some bedroom in a godforsaken armpit of the world as we speak. He or she will do to these production line pop cunts what the Sex Pistols did to the dinosaurs of the past. Bring it on kid, bring it on. Or am I just dreaming?”
