Music Monday: Anarchy Road

One of my favorite things is 80s style synth pop. About a year or so ago I discovered Carpenter Brut. I really like their music. One of their recent songs, Anarchy Road, is about an awful post-prosperity future for western civilization. The music video below is just clips from the recent Judge Dredd film, but they fit the song perfectly because of the bleak circumstances, violent battles, and exaggerated color palate. There is a significant amount of gore, so if that bothers you don’t watch the video.

Lyrics below:

 

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Skyless kingdom of faceless apes
Sunless city and spineless shades

[Chorus]
In twenty-seventy or so
Tenements on fire
Blazing through endless nights

[Verse 2]
Heavy downpours of charcoal rain
Spewing sewers and belching drains

[Chorus]
In twenty-seventy or so
Tenements on fire
Blazing through endless nights

[Bridge]
And behind every spy hole
Car wrecks and barbwire
Dirty streets and knife fights

[Verse 3]
Ruins and leavers everywhere
Fear of a pagan world
Behind the flames and the prayers
Soulless creatures burn

[Chorus]
In twenty-seventy or so
Tenements on fire (In the naval of God)
Blazing through endless nights

[Bridge]
And behind every spy hole
Car wrecks and barbwire (In the naval of God)
Dirty streets and knife fights
