We Will Rock You

The time is the future, in a place that was once called Earth. Globalisation is complete.

Everywhere, the kids watch the same movies, wear the same fashions and think the same thoughts. One eye is no longer focussed, instead, virtual reality is becoming the new reality. 

It’s a safe, happy, “GaGa” world. Unless you’re a rebel. Unless you want to ROCK! 

On the iPlanet, all the musical instruments are banned as if they are responsible for the new world plague. The Company Computers instead generate tunes which everybody streams. It is an age of Boy Bands and of Girl Bands. Of Boy and Girl Bands. Of Girl Bands with a couple of boys in them that look like girls anyway! Nothing is left to chance as hits are scheduled years in advance.

Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality.

But Resistance is growing. Underneath the gleaming data cities, down in the lower depths, below the apocalyptic wastelands live the Bohemians. Rebels, led by the wise archivist and music historian Buddy, who believes that there was once a Golden Age when the kids formed their own bands and wrote their own songs. The Bohemians call that time, The Rhapsody.

Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see.

Legend persists that somewhere on the iPlanet, instruments still exist. Somewhere, the mighty axe of a great and hairy guitar god lies buried deep within the living rock. The Bohemians need a hero, a chosen one, to find this axe, draw it from the stone and play the mighty riff. Is the one who calls himself Galileo that man?

He’s just a poor boy. From a poor family. 

But the “GaGa” Cops, under the instruction of Commander Khashoggi, are also looking for Galileo and his helper Scaramouche and if they get them first they will surely drag them before the Killer Queen and consign them to Oblivion across the Seven Seas of Rhye. Who is Galileo? Where is the Hairy One’s lost axe? Where is the place of living rock?

Any way the wind blows.
