THE SOCIAL SERVICE - "Strange"



music and lyrics: Simon Shack
performed by: The Social Service (five-piece band)
video: an old General Electric / Pentagon-propaganda cartoon (slightly edited)
...
This is a video I put together ( for my band's stage performances ) using an old GENERAL ELECTRIC propaganda film which pompously hails the "scientific achievements of mankind"... The discovery of the Atom Bomb is presented in Disney-like fashion - in other words...it's targeted for kids.

Even though this film may be 50 years old, it is no worse than the TV war propaganda constantly hammered into people's brains today. However, here we have cartoon imagery showing little children 'the wondrous genius of great men inventing weapons of mass destruction'. Beat that in terms of depravity...( oh, I forgot : on 9/11 they went one step further...)

Of course, the "Atomic Bomb" is just another fear-mongering hoax concocted by the "powers that be" to scare this world's unsuspecting population shitless:

(NB : the only images I've added to the original General Electric film are the "Dr. Strangelove H-bomb" at the start and the "LIES-LIES antenna" further into the video.)

STRANGE ( lyrics )
You duly make up your own lies
You duly do what you're supposed to do
You duly make up your own lies
You duly do what you're supposed to do
I am not , saying something strange
I'm saying something true
I am not , saying something strange
I'm saying something true
