A ‘satire about satire’, WASTELAND is a wild Burroughsian adventure melding science-fiction, absurdism and magical realism, calling
fora revolution against the reductive ‘good versus evil’ narratives of popular satirical music. Arguing that through experimenting with
the form of the song lyric (our most widely disseminated form of creative writing) we can build more nuanced popular discourse
around the implicit forms of bias that ail us, WASTELAND presents complex characters changing their minds–along with their bodies
and places in spacetime. Set in an unearthly liminal space populated by shape-shifters, time-travellers, talking genitalia and
ectoplasmic spectres, the prose text evolves as the characters do: warping into cut-ups, soliloquies and even plays.Created over two
years, the album draws from LICE’s rise in ‘the punk world’ (sharing stages with IDLES, The Fall, Squid, Fat White Family, Girl Band
etc.) and eventual disillusionment with the limits of its prevailing ideas.
