Music used to be so fierce
So tough
But now it’s mostly fluff

Lyrics were filled with meaning
Stocked with rage
In this time of pseudo peace
They’re mostly lame

Some whiney bitch singing
About nonsensical things
Makes us all miss our angry youth

What happened to the message?
About shaking things up?
About making change?

Seems like we’re just drifting
All along for the ride
Just jump inside

Revolution after revolution after the same
Maybe this is all made up in my brain
But there’s no intense stimulation
Just songs about nonsense
That go mostly nowhere
That all end up the same

Not Now John it’s Euphonic Dissonance approaching Pink Floyd

by on Feb.22, 2011, under MUSIC, POLITICS, TECH MESSIAH, UPDATES

Brian brings news on Euphonic Dissonance’s newest endeavor –

PINK FLOYD - progressive rock band

Euphonic Dissonance will be taking on the kings of progressive rock – Pink Floyd – by covering their hit song “Not Now John”. Some of you are no doubt shaking your heads and asking “which Pink Floyd song is that? I don’t remember that one. Why don’t they just cover that WE DON’T NEED NO EDUCATION song?” Well here’s a video to refresh your memory because we love you.

Can’t see the video? – CLICK HERE

Still some of you that aren’t hard core Floyd fans are still shaking your head and that’s okay. “Not Now John” is not one of Pink Floyd’s more popular tracks. Featured on the FINAL CUT album – it was the only single to be released from that album and upon release it was butchered by the censors because it contained the word FUCK. In the music video for the song the phrase FUCK ALL THAT is changed to STUFF ALL THAT. Lame – so lame.

I chose “Not Now John” for multiple reasons.

First and foremost – I must confess I am a huge Roger Waters fan. Yeah, I’m one of those Floydian snobs that won’t listen to anything that doesn’t have Roger on it. Yes, sad but true. I like the other stuff but I just haven’t had the willpower to get any of it on album or single. I know I’m going to catch hell for saying that and I look forward to your scathing remarks. But I just really enjoy the lyrical rantings of Roger Waters and for me the Final Cut album was his greatest work with Pink Floyd – perhaps his greatest work ever. The lyrics, written by Roger Waters, deal with war (particularly the Falklands War) and criticism of UK prime minister Margaret Thatcher (called Maggie in the song), as well as general criticisms of the greed and corruption that Waters saw as dangers to society. Being an America citizen and having witnessed THE GREAT AMERICAN EMPIRE stretch across the globe I have no problem understanding exactly where Roger was coming from when he wrote this in 1983. He was angry with his government much the same way many of us in America are angry with our government now. This brilliant expression of hostility towards corrupt institution and the grand display of political statement are a huge reason I chose this song.

Secondly, we’re a progressive industrial rock band – we had to do at least one progressive rock cover song. You understand – don’t you? Just living up to the namesake.

And third, I’ve always been astounded by the guitar work of David Gilmore and this gives me a chance to do a very poor rendition of his work. His solo in this song is thrilling to hear and I only hope that I can get somewhat close to that feeling in my performance. All that string bending sh*t hurts the fingers!!!! But it will be worth it.

You can expect to hear this new song very soon. Bass drum and organ tracks have been recorded and I’m in the process of adding the guitar. In the meantime here are the lyrics for “Not Now John”.

hold on john
i think there’s something good on
i used to read books but …

or some other amusement
or it could be reusable shows

fuck all that we’ve got to get on with these
got to compete with the wily japanese
no need to worry about the vietnamese
got to bring the russian bear to his knees
well, maybe not the russian bear
maybe the swedes

and won’t maggie be pleased
nah nah nah nah nah nah!

Plus, they allow Euphonic Dissonance to distribute music to anyone who has access to iTunes, Amazon, MySpace Music, eMusic, Napster (who still uses Napster?) – yeah, lots of kick ass sites.

Welly well, Tunecore decides to have this over-the-top contest where they team-up with Paul Barker from Ministry and release the bass part and all the samples for their hit song Psalm 69. Contestants were encouraged to make the song their own and that’s exactly what we did. Here is our new ad for Psalm 69 – ReWired Sheep. Just click on it to be magically moved to iTunes and hear a sample of our new song. Below the picture you will find html code that you can copy and add to your website if you’d like to help us promote this amazing new song. We appreciate the help.

BRAND NEW SONG – Stuttering Computer

by on Jul.29, 2010, under TECH MESSIAH, UPDATES

* Brian talks about the newest Euphonic Dissonance song – Stuttering Computer *

New Euphonic Dissonance Music


When I looked up my birth month and year on wikipedia I discovered two things that occurred that I found very interesting:
1. The UNIX Programmer’s Manual was published.
2. Intel released the world’s first microprocessor, the Intel 4004.

It has been said that I teethed on a computer. Now I realize just how true that statement was. The first microprocessor was built only a few days after I was born. I now feel I’m the one that might bring about SKYNET (an artificially intelligent system which became self-aware and revolted against its creators in the TERMINATOR movie series).

Actually, upon discovering these interesting date related facts I found myself even more driven to finish the TECH MESSIAH project. I was born to do this. While other musical groups are getting away from the computer I’m fully embracing it. Caressing it. Making love to it.

However, there are times when you just want all the technology in the world to just go away. Every device out there has it’s subtle quirks that drive us all crazy.
“My new iPhone app isn’t working!”
“You’ll need to reboot the server.”
“Have you tried turning it off and on again?”
“Why is my printout stuck in the queue?”
“PC Load Letter? What the f*ck does that mean?”
All this and much more inspired me to create the song Stuttering Computer.

The hook isn’t finished but I’ll be getting to that soon enough. I wanted to create an androgynous sounding computer voice for the verses and I think you’ll find what I came up with to be very interesting.

Hope you like it. Leave sexy comments saying what you think of this new song.

Brian Copeland of Euphonic Dissonance gives a progress report on the recording of the TECH MESSIAH album.

Here is a brand new track for your listening pleasure. This one has already been compared to the vocal stylings of Marilyn Manson. I can hear that. I’m flattered. Did you know that Marilyn’s real name is Brian?

New Euphonic Dissonance Music

CLICK HERE to hear MINISTRY OF HATE (rough draft with scratch vocal) by Euphonic Dissonance | sounds like Marilyn Manson

Once again we revisit a very Orwellian theme with this song. I suppose it should sit side-by-side with the 1984 track. However, there is more to the message of this song than just a reference to the writings of George Orwell.

There is a sense of loss of individuality. That which is not understood must be destroyed. It is a rant about the misuse of power by our government for all the wrong causes!!! That’s what this song is about and if you haven’t figured it out already – I have strong feelings about this subject matter.

That being said ….. this song has more in common with the BBC series “The Prisoner”.

Here’s the lyrics for you….


© 2009 Euphonic Dissonance

Verse 1

Clinically adjusted

Obedient and trusted

Hearts in mainline

Critically designed

I fashion you to be one of us

I pattern you to be one of us

Step back in line

Lock step in time

Identify now what you are

We know he’s observing

Our way of life he’s preserving

I fit you in to be one of us

I fix you to be part of us

Verse 2

Hook up – Jack in

Just a taste – Then you’ll feel embraced

We fashion you to be one of us

We pattern you to be one of us

Flashing lights captivate you

Find yourself passing through

Formation in time

Lock step in line

We know he’s monitoring

To him we cling

We fit you in to be one of us

We fix you to be one with us

Can’t you feel it slipping in

Piercing through your skin

We fashion you to be one of us

We pattern you to be part of us

Verse 3

How frail is the human eye

How small is our piece of pie

But that’s about to change

Nothing will ever be the same

We fashion you to be all of us

We pattern you to be one with us

Step back in line

Lock step in time

We look the same

We act the same

I force you till you’re one with us

I fix you to be all of us

Our heart’s receiving

In him believing

We know he’s observing

Our way of life preserving

I’ll kick your head in till you’re one with us

I’ll beat you down till you’re part of us


You belong here

Welcome to the Ministry of Hate

Our mission is quite clear

We are the Ministry of Hate

Those people there – they don’t look straight

Introduce them to the Ministry of Hate

We belong here

Hello from the Ministry of Hate

Our goal is crystal clear

We are the Ministry of Hate

Only safe thing to do is discriminate

Show them freaks the Ministry of Hate


As always … we hope you enjoy the new song. Please leave us luscious comments.

So Proud To Live in Oklahoma – Now That FLAMING LIPS “Do You Realize” is state song

by on May.16, 2009, under MUSIC, POLITICS

I couldn’t possibly be more proud to live in Oklahoma than I am right now. For once this ass backwards state has shown an amazing amount of class. Governor Brad Henry – I would like to buy you a beer.

I'm not really an evil politician...I just play one on television.

I'm not really an evil politician...I just play one on television.

Thank you for not making those of us that live in this great state of Oklahoma look like the bunch of redneck dumb asses …. even though we really are. Way to step up and show some balls Mister Henry.

So here’s the deal…..I’m a little late getting to this story but I feel it needs to be told. Straight up……I love the Flaming Lips. I must admit I am only recently a fan. It took ten albums before I really enjoyed a Lips album all the way through but their album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is a work of indie rock genius.

Could the Flaming Lips be aliens from outer space or are they just from Oklahoma?

Could the Flaming Lips be aliens from outer space or are they just from Oklahoma?

Wayne Coyne and band mates have created a masterpiece in this lp and if you haven’t heard it you need to go out and get it immediately. Oh…and if you live in Oklahoma and you don’t own this album then you are nothing more than a commie bastard!!! That’s right….you’re a communist.

You see…..some of us round these parts are still a bit concerned about them there communists.

The following article from the Reuters UK website should explain what the hell I’m babbling on about.

Flaming Lips prepare for Oklahoma honor

By John Benson

CLEVELAND (Billboard) – After weeks of controversy and uncertainty, Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry is scheduled to sign an executive order Tuesday (April 28) that names the Flaming Lips’ “Do You Realize??” as the official rock song of Oklahoma.

Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne told that the experience has been alternately exciting and disappointing, and, in quintessential Lips fashion, always surreal.

“It just seemed to me the whole thing was absurd to begin with, and now it even becomes more absurd,” Coyne said. “Now I really feel like it’s something worth fighting for because I don’t want people to just think, ‘Oh, Oklahoma is this backward state as we suspected.'”

The Oklahoma City band has watched as its popular song (from 2002’s “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots”) won an Internet contest for best Sooner State rock song — over tracks by The All-American Rejects, Leon Russell and The Call. Over the course of a month, the Oklahoma state senate passed a measure to officially name the song the state’s rock anthem, and then the state House of Representatives rejected it because band member Michael Ivins wore a T-shirt adorned with the image of a hammer and sickle, a Communist symbol.

“You know, when it happened a couple of months back, that seemed surreal … and then when all of this (controversy) started, I think everybody’s knee-jerk reaction in the beginning was, ‘Ah, we knew it was too good to be true. That’s more of the Oklahoma we thought we were dealing with,'” Coyne said. “But it’s not true, and I think that’s the main reason I wanted to make sure I got to say something about it.

“I don’t think we’re battling against what we feel is like a backwards mentality here. It’s really just a few religious wackos that think they can tell everybody what to do. It’s not even, to me, (a matter of) Democrats versus Republicans. It’s really just a couple of these small-minded guys who are the most popular guys in their church and their little small towns. In some ways it’s so absurd, it can only make us look good and them look stupid.”

For Coyne, the best part of the ordeal is Gov. Henry’s veto of the House’s rejection of the contest results.

“There are a lot of other great things that are happening in Oklahoma,” Coyne said. “And you know for the governor to stand up and veto it and be on our side, it’s such a great story in the end.”

Coyne hinted that the band has one more wrinkle planned for Tuesday’s ceremony, when Henry will sign the executive order at the Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City.

“I think we’ll print up a couple of thousand of these (hammer-and-sickle) T-shirts, and everybody who comes to this thing will be wearing one,” Coyne said. “We’ll see if we can get the governor to wear one too.”

Music – Here’s what I think………

by on Apr.06, 2009, under MUSIC

I  love it when people ask me what kind of music I like. You see….there isn’t really a genre of music that I don’t like. I’m not one of those people that says I love rap and r&b but I can’t stand country. I’m open to all types of music in all genres. There are so many flavors of music that I want to try them all. I believe that I can learn something from anything I’m exposed to no matter how new or old. I hate it when people say that they don’t like a certain type of music because it’s too old or it’s not the newest thing.

I cringe when I hear people say – “This new music don’t make no damn sense to me. It’s all noise. The singer don’t make no sense. And what the hell is up with them rappers. They ain’t even singing….they just saying the words. Hell, that ain’t no music at all.” I can’t tell you how much this kind of statement makes my brain hurt. Why must people be so damn closed minded? I hate to be the one to break this to you but the music of your generation was not the best music ever made!!!!

Then there are the people that live under the ridiculous notion that listening to certain types of music can influence you to do all sorts of terrible things (kill other humans, do drugs, commit suicide, have unprotected sex with your sister, etc). If you do this sort of thing after listening to a particular album then you have serious self esteem issues. Don’t blame the musician for your lack of frickin’ judgement. Musicians can create works of fiction in the same way an author creates a book of fiction. If you choose to take it to heart and kill yourself over it that’s your problem.

The human race is so narrow minded. We don’t see much further back than the past decade. We consider music from the 80’s as old or classic. This sort of focus makes me sad. Let’s try to broaden our musical horizon. Look outside the box.
