We Will Rock You: February 2017
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. It’s a safe, happy, Ga Ga world. Unless you’re a rebel. Unless you want to Rock. On iPlanet all the musical instruments are banned. The Company Computers generate tunes and everybody downloads them. It is an age of Boy Bands and of Girl Bands. Of Girl Bands with a couple of boys in them that look like girls anyway. Nothing is left to chance, hits are scheduled years in advance.
But Resistance is growing. Underneath the gleaming cities, down in the lower depths live the Bohemians. Rebels who believe that there was once a Golden Age when the kids formed their own bands and wrote their own songs. They call that time ‘The Rhapsody’.
Legend persists that somewhere on iPlanet instruments still exist. Somewhere, the mighty axe of a great guitar god lies buried deep in rock. The Bohemians need a hero to find this axe and draw it from the stone.
But the Ga Ga Cops are also looking for Galileo and if they get him first they will surely drag him before the Killer Queen and consign him to Oblivion across the Seven Seas of Rhye.
