April 30, 2012 - PRLog -- In a world full of Mediocre Pop Idol Music,where  generic Pop Stars with Banal inane Lyrics, Dominate the media channels of TV and  the Internet. Three Strangers have come together to fullfill a Dead Poets Prophetic legacy. To tell The Internet Generation exactly how it is.

"The Revolution will not be Online” is a a breathe of fresh air, its a Sign of the Times, a Zeitgeist protest song, a State of the Art address,  and an observation of the shallowness of Internet culture dominated by Artists and Organisations whose quest for domination of the Internet  is only matched by paucity of their content and product.

When Tim Young was  explaining "Gil Scott Herons" Classic Rap the "Revolution will not be televised" to a group of students. he realised that a lot of the references in the song meant nothing to them as they were 70's specific. So he decided to write an updated version to bring it up to date he posted his new lyric online. A few days later JC Carroll, a musician composer and performer spotted this on a friends Facebook page. A light bulb went off inside his head, the words fitted perfectly on a tune he had recorded recently for his future blues project. (21st century Blues)  So JC got in touch with Tim and said could he use the words on a recording .Tim said yes and  can I make the video. So within a week a Global "Collab" was born. A Collab is a piece of work done online between musicians and artists. Often these people have never been in a room together or indeed spoken which make the project internet specific and the content part of a collective global artistic intelligence. An Original electronic music was made by Jerry Miller aKA Zone Music Inc AKA JerriZ and embellished and adapted by JC to become first a tune called the Truth and then with Tim (And Gils) contribution. "The Revolution Will Not Be online.' TRWNBOL

Carroll is no Stranger to Protest music his 1979 Hit “Offshore Banking Business” Still resonates strongly with The Occupy Movement. and his million Selling “Sound of the Suburbs” is Considered a Punk Classic. He still tours regularly with his band “The Members” and is a prolific songwriter and artist.

A Piece of music that highlight the disposability and shallowness of the internet as we know it and parallels it with the dumbing down of the culture by television in the 70's"

Rock Critic and Strummer and Marley Biographer Chris Salewicz  "No-one understands the nuances and complexities of 21st Century Blues more than JC and his collaborators : on the record his satirical wit abounds, making you simultaneously chuckle at his observations whilst wryly admitting their wisdom. A rattling good earful!”

You will not be able to download, brother.
You will not be able to plug in, log on and opt out.
You will not be able to lose yourself on endless hours
of Nyan Cat and Double Rainbow,
Because the revolution will not be online.

The revolution will not be online.
The revolution will not be brought to you on
YouTube In 4 parts without pop up interruptions.
The revolution will not show you pictures of Obama
firing off a fanfare on his iPhone's bugle
simulation app and leading a charge by Martin Dempsey,
Hilary Clinton and Joe Biden to eat reclaimed
chicken nuggets confiscated from a school canteen.
The revolution will not be online.

The revolution will not be instantly downloadable from
iTunes & will not star Kristen Stewart and
Robert Pattinson or succession of hilarious LOLcats.
The revolution will not give you a faster connection.
The revolution will not get rid of spam.
The revolution will not help you find the love of your
life in three easy steps, because
the revolution will not be online, Bro.

There will be no pictures of you and your Facebook
friends tagged in compromising situations that
you wouldn't want your parents or employer to know
There will be no pictures of soldiers shooting
protesters taken on a stranger's mobile.
There will be no pictures of Colonel Gaddafi being
dragged through the streets to his inevitable demise,
taken with
a brand new apple device.

Rick Rolling, Oolong the Pancake Rabbit, and Rebecca Black
will no longer be so damned relevant, and women will not
care if the Old Spice Guy is on a horse
because we will all be in the street looking for a brighter
The revolution will not be online.

There will be no high resolution highlights on your
news feed or repetitive tweets from third rate
celebrities about how you can change the world by
watching an online documentary.
The theme song will not be written by Lady Gaga or
Katy Perry, nor sung by Sean Paul, Rihanna,
JAY-Z, Kanye West, Ok Go! or LMAFO!
The Revolution will not be online.

The revolution will  not go better with Coke.
The revolution will  not go better with MDMA
The revolution will  not go better with Crystal Meth

The revolution will not appear in a new tab, ask you to
tick the box to agree to it's terms and conditions
or invite you to fill in a short survey to gain access.
It will not photoshop your face onto someone else's
body or ask for more cowbell.
The revolution will still not go better with Coke.
The revolution will not describe anything as being 'epic'.
The revolution will put you in Chuck Norris's seat.

The revolution will not be online, will not be online,
will not be online, will not be online.
The revolution will be no re-post brothers;
The revolution will be live.
