Chapter Five: QUARANTINE

When’s the last time you saw the sun? How long have you been living in fear of the outside world? Do you need to cover your face and hands if you do go out in public? The concepts of being a creature of the dark and living in quarantine have a lot in common, so it’s no surprise that there’s a lot of music out there that’s become very appropriate for our stay-at-home world. In this chapter, Ed and Justin share some songs from KMFDM, Gary Numan, and others, that remind us that we’re not alone in being alone.
