To quote Planet E's press release...:
"Korrupt Data is more than a mere musical moniker, pseudonym or alias. Korrupt Data is a belief system, musical revolution and a commentary on our very existence all rolled into one. The question you should be asking is not "who is Korrupt Data", but rather "what is Korrupt Data?"
All sound a little vague and ambiguous? We thought so too - which is why we took a trip down the rabbit hole to probe a little further. Madness ensued.
DP: What is Korrupt Data?
PLEASE CHOOSE FROM THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS:
1. A FUNDAMENTAL FLAW IN THIS THING WE CALL EXISTENCE.
2. A DIVERSION TACTIC BY OUR REPTILLIAN OVERLORDS TO DISTRACT FROM THE SLOW, PAINFUL CREEP TOWARDS HUMANITY’S INEVITABLE DEMISE.
3. A CYNICAL MARKETING EXERCISE DESIGNED TO GET LAZY, HYPE-OBSESSED JOURNALISTS AND VACUOUS ‘LUMBERSEXUALS’ TO LISTEN TO A PIECE OF MUSIC: A NECESSARY EVIL GIVEN THAT EDITORIAL DECISIONS ARE NO LONGER BASED PURELY ON THE MERITS OF MUSIC, BUT RATHER SOME PR-DRIVEN CIRCLE JERK.
4. AN ALBUM BY KORRUPT DATA.
5. YOUR MUM.
PLEASE CHOOSE WISELY. TURN THE PAGE TO FIND OUT HOW THE ADVENTURE UNFOLDS.
DP: Who do you think we think Korrupt Data is?
WHO DO YOU THINK I THINK YOU ARE? I AM KORRUPT DATA. I HAVE NO PAST, PRESENT OR FUTURE. I SIMPLY EXIST, AND ALWAYS HAVE DONE. THE FACT SHEET WAS VERY CLEAR ON THIS POINT.
DP: Should we believe anything you say about Korrupt Data?
THE TRUTH IS HARD TO HANDLE. YOU ARE SENTIENT BEINGS WHO MAKE YOUR OWN CHOICES. TRUST YOUR JUDGEMENT. IT IS ALMOST CERTAINLY WRONG, BUT AT LEAST YOU’LL SHOW SOME BOLLOCKS.
DP: Where and when was the album written?
IT WASN’T WRITTEN. IT WAS CHANNELLED. THESE QUESTIONS ARE GETTING WORSE.
DP: What is Korrupt Data’s music machine of choice?
MODULAR SYNTHESIZER SYSTEMS AND BASIC DRUM MACHINES HAND-CRAFTED BY MUTANTS.
DP: What does Korrupt Data think about the digital generation?
THE DIGITAL GENERATION SHOULD BE MORE AWARE OF THE IMPENDING DARKNESS. CORRUPTED DATA SWAMPS OUR LIVES. SOON THE MACHINES WILL TURN.
DP: Is the album driven by nostalgia towards the analogue generation?
IT IS DRIVEN BY CORRUPTED DATA. THIS IS THE WHOLE POINT OF KORRUPT DATA. WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET THROUGH TO YOU?
DP: Should we believe Luitzen Brouwer?
BELIEVE WHAT YOU LIKE – IT’S YOUR FUNERAL. HE WAS RIGHT ABOUT ONE THING, THOUGH: NOT EVERYTHING CAN BE EXPLAINED BY LOGIC AS WE UNDERSTAND IT.
DP: Are we lazy media types? Why are you even talking to us?
WHO SAYS I AM TALKING TO YOU? FOR ALL YOU KNOW, THESE ANSWERS COULD HAVE BEEN WRITTEN BY SOMEONE ELSE: A STOOGE, A CHANCER, EVEN THE MAN OR WOMAN SAT AT THE NEXT DESK – A KIND OF ELABORATE ‘FUCK YOU’ TO THE MEDIA. SOMEBODY IS PLAYING THE GAME, BUT IT MAY NOT BE KORRUPT DATA.
DP: When is Pious Pete next in town, and can we come to a rave at the vatican?
ARE YOU ONE OF THE CHOSEN FEW? UNLESS YOU’RE GOOD AT COVERING UP THE TRUTH, THERE’S NO WAY THEY’LL LET YOU IN. KORRUPT DATA KNOWS WHERE THE BODIES ARE BURIED.
