PUBLIC HEALTH WARNING – THIS BLOG-POST TALKS ABOUT AN ALIEN INVASION. IT’S NOT REAL.
When I was a teenager I watched the X-Files. That’s basically the extent of my interest in alien life. Like everyone else I enjoy a good bit of alien bashing in Hollywood movies, and I’ll read the occasional story that the Beeb serve up about UFOs over Cumbria that turn out to be local teenagers experimenting with fireworks, cheap cider and dis-guarded guttering. But let’s be clear, I’m no Roswell nerd or Trek loving space loon.
However, I do imagine that when the aliens do arrive we’ll arrange a lavish welcoming ceremony featuring sheepish looking world leaders (or their stunt doubles) and the arts and music of the world (hopefully George Michael will perform and the alien invaders will assimilate him into a green blob of guk and the peoples of the world will cheer). Kinda like the Olympics opening ceremony but with a thousand nukes aimed secretly and nervously at our ‘guests’. If such an event were to take place, I’d strongly urge Barack and the gang to consider NO CEREMONY/// for the headline slot. The aliens may not get the irony in the name, but I think the music would be right up their street. You all agree right?
I’ve always felt that dark but strangely melodic electronica, like NO CEREMONY///, has a peculiar alien, other-world quality to it.
The alien allusion may sound like madness (it is) but we can all concur that NO CEREMONY/// are poised to take the world (if not the universe) by storm. Their controlled, rhythmic but delicate ambiance will stop you dead in your tracks, you didn’t like electronica, now you do.
NO CEREMONY/// – music for aliens, written by humans.
