Early Adopters

What a great song.

"We've taken too much for granted
And all the time it had grown
From techno seeds we first planted
Evolved a mind of it's own"

A completely inexplicable reference in a song that seems to echo a few early techno concerns, a dystopian futurism. I know it's probably not in reference to anything going on in Detroit, but still.

And also a prefiguring of acceleraionist technofascistwank. It's also basically the plot to Terminator as well.

"From off I've seen my perfection
Where we could do as we please
In secrecy this infection
Was spreading like a disease"

Rob Halford - prophetic visionary?
