The Electric Senators:-

Shred

SHRED

Shred is the lead singer of Evil Chopsticks.
Originally hailing from Parts Unknown (which is somewhere near High Wycombe) he currently resides in the secret location of The Future Bunker.
He is a gravitational well for all things 80's and 90's.
His film quality barometer is 'questionable'.
So questionable people have been known to refer to a film as a 'Shred film' to convey what great quality it is...

Professor Matt

PROFESSOR MATT

Matthew is in his forties. He is not sure how this occurred and is too scared to question itů

I'm sorry, but I don't want to be an emperor.
That's not my business.
I don't want to rule or conquer anyone.
I should like to help everyone if possible.
We all want to help one another, human beings are like that.
We want to live by each other's misery.
More than humanity, we need machinery.
More that cleverness kindness and gentleness., we need cleverness
Without these qualities life will be violent, and all will have brought us closer together.
Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world - millions of despairing men, women, and little children. To those who can hear me, I say - despair.
The misery that is now upon us is but the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will never die and liberty will perish. ...
Give yourselves to these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts!
You are machines!
You are cattle!
You are men!
You hate humanity in your hearts!
You hate!
