lyrics

Hey where’s my jetpack, we laugh and say “how droll!”
But then we all go quiet cos that’s not what we were sold
Though the future we were promised was dystopian and cursed
The present that we live in is arguably worse
The planet has died and everyone sucks
It’s misery and pain from dawn to dusk
Pretty much dictionary definition futuristic
It couldn’t be more futuristic

No, not this future, this isn’t what I meant
I wanted one all dressed in white with neon circus tents
One where all disease was just a distant memory
And everybody floated round in blissful ecstacy, where
We’d seen to the end of the bourgeoisie
With every class deleted, no hierarchy
But that is never ever what was meant by futuristic
That’s the opposite of futuristic

John Foxx in his car
John Foxx in his car
John Foxx in his car
John Foxx in his car
John Foxx in his car
John Foxx in his car

The future: exactly like the past but in extreme
Politicians propping up old crumbling regimes
We’ve somehow got this far and yet we still haven’t matured
Past bigotry and jealousy, tradition and nerves
The brave new world is old school shill
Nothing’s changed and nothing will
This it seems is what was meant by futuristic
It’s totally futuristic

Spray Lancashire, UK

Ric and Jen were members of 21st century pop terrorists The Cuban Boys, who topped John Peel's Festive 50 and the UK singles charts.

Their offshoot project Spray predicted the electropop boom, unfortunately much too early for them to cash in. They released two albums in 2002 and 2006.

In 2016 they released their first full length studio album in 10 years - 'Enforced Fun'.
