Calling All Astronauts - The Autopilot's Handbook
Here it is. Propaganda for the non-political, religion for the non-believer, the things we think about when we're on autopilot.
Let's start here - we have to start somewhere - with a quote from some Confucius trapped in the online ether: “If someday we all go to prison for downloading music, I hope they have the mercy to split us by genre.”
We’re not with Lilly Allen on much – nothing against her, just she’s in a different musical universe from CAA. But as recording artists we do sympathise with her stand on copyright. Is it so terrible to be paid for making music, for fuck’s sake?
But sod that for a game of badly trained Territorial Army reservists. The cool thing about the quote is the genre thing.
Imagine being locked up in a cell with someone who only listened to Lilly. Pretty soon you’d be not just knowing the lyrics to “Fuck You” better than you knew your own name, you’d be acting them out. Fuck you, mate. Fuck you very, very much.
