Atari Teenage Riot - Modern Liars

Like a machine gun stuttering out the beginning of an urgent message in Morse code Modern Liars’ opening salvo warns of how our putative democratic guardians plan to steal our dreams.

Each news broadcast features stories of how modern technology is being used by governments and corporations to snoop into your personal life. Search engines are used to monitor your aspirations and mobile phones to track your every movement.

The lyrics of Modern Liars caution us that acquiescence is not an option - but don’t leave it to anyone else; it’s your life and your responsibility.

Atari Teenage Riot’s message is as positive and uplifting as their music. Guitars shudder with excitement, synths soar and the detonation of a skein of snare and toms announces a hook line that embeds itself in your brain like a cleaver in butcher’s block.

The anthemic chorus of Modern Liars trumpets the freedom offered by the modern world. Despite the best efforts of the hegemonies, the computational power with which they attempt to shape and control society is also a means of resistance and salvation… Just take it!
