‘Resistance is Futile’

Laibach Resistance is Futile out Mar 4

9 January 2014

Slovenian political art group and concept band, Laibach, will be following up their 2006 album of Wagnerian Imperialist anthem interpretations, VOLK, with the again relevantly-titled Resistance is Futile, out on Mute, March 4.

In the (non)spirit of all outlooks bleak -capitalist subsumption, cultural hegemony and environmental catastrophe -the band responsible for deliberately, though controversially, aping totalitarian behaviours as part of Neue Slowenische Kunst (New Slovenian Art Collective) pointedly announces, “we are Laibach and you will be assimilated”, in the industrial title track. Other songs include ‘The Whistleblowers’, ‘No History’ and ‘We are Millions and Millions are One’, so you can see where they’re going with this.
