Fuck Work is the last release of the post-industrial electronic music band We Are Not Brothers (WANB).
The format chosen this time is an EP with 5 cuts edited in a one-off
pressing of 200 copies in highest quality vinyl, again in Oráculo Records and is, in a part, a continuation of “III” (OR49, 2018).
The work is motivated by different personal experiences of the members of the band, (a fact that had never happened in their 13 years of career) and is a criticism of the alienation we suffer in our theoretically intended and deserved works, to modern society subtly enslaved, disguised as meritocracy, to the suffocating routine that slowly extinguishes our souls as time goes by without having barely enjoyed the mundane pleasures of life. Nothing new under the sun.
This fact motivated that during the last two years, in one way or another, everyone claimed fuck work!
In addition, these issues are related to some of the topics covered in “III”: industrialization, ludism, capitalism, workers struggle...but adapted to a more current, modern and, above all, personal discourse.
The artwork also follows that streamline: a self-acting machine (one
of the first spinning machines of the industrial revolution like the one we could have found in any industrial city of the 19th century, be it Alcoi, Barcelona or Glasgow) deconstructed via glitch, just like WANBs have deconstructed their old lives in recent times.
