ArtistRack brings to you ‘Even The Cool Succumb’ by Beasties Rock Opera:
“Even The Cool Succumb” Punkhead sung by songwriter Gary Sohmers; Dick Traitor sung by UK legend Chris Farlowe; from “Beasties: A Sci-Fi Rock Opera.” A story about a rock band that finally has a hit record after years of touring, performing a free concert in Central Park that attracts a huge crowd. But, without telling the band, the promoter sold a sponsorship to a corrupt politician, Dick T.Raitor, who interrupts the concert in an attempt to hijack the audience’s attention. The hero, Grā (pronounced: Gray), currently a stagehand and a retired singer, is affected by an alien intervention from an otherworldly impulse—which infuses within him a schizophrenic identity with special powers—to make humanity aware of their inner Beasties. Two intertwined rock and roll love stories, one between humans and one between the universe and the sci-fi rock known as earth, to save the planet from climate destruction by societal corruption.
