This week’s video treat comes from Tasmanian punk ‘n’ roll act A. Swayze & The Ghosts, with their new single, ‘Connect To Consume’. This punk-spirited track is a defiant message against the consumerist society that we now seem embroiled in.
In the words of lead singer Andrew Swayze:
“We have exchanged honesty, beauty, ugliness, boredom – reality – for an abstract museum inside a digitised screen, curated by big business but sustained by us. We have volunteered to pace the halls blindly, loudly. We are promised the pain of life will numb. We are given a rule for everything. We submit, we succeed. We do not feel; we do not need to anymore. We have accepted the prison and adorned the uniforms under the guise of convenience. We have connected and now we will consume.”
