"You're a demanding consumer. And you demand instant gratification. Your needs are our main concern.Let's be honest. As consumers we all have needs and desires. Trouble is, we supress them. In nature, as in the business world, there are winners and there are losers. But does the predator pity the prey? I don't think so. It's not just unnatural, it's plain unhealthy. Nurture your desires. Cultivate your desires. Let them grow and flower into the blossom that is GREED.You see, you are needed! Your greed provides this country with the fertile financial soil in which the roots of exploitation can spread, the limbs grow and flourish. This in turn furnishes you, the consumer, the standard of living you've come to expect. The products you buy, the programs you watch, the car you drive, your job: these are the things that define you as an individual. Without them you have no identity, no purpose, no reason to exist.Greed. Hatred. They're not just good ideas, they're the precepts this country was founded on. They're what keep you right where you are.And we'd like to keep it that way."
Cop Shoot Cop's "Corporate Protopop", first track on side two of "White Noise" now available here.

Not just the track but the entire album, glorious. That bloke's smoothly patronising voice, and that sinister, self-satisfied little 'ting' at the end.. genius! Balsam for a vicious head cold. My thanks to Mr Sartori, my iPod is a good deal richer
