Discovered deep within the Duran Duran vaults, TV Mania’s Bored With Prozac and The Internet? blends television samples and looping rhythm tracks to create a sonically sophisticated collection of songs that serve as the perfect soundtrack to the Facebook age. Conceived in the mid–‘90s by Duran Duran’s keyboardist Nick Rhodes and guitarist Warren Cuccurullo, Bored with Prozac was culled from a collection of tunes recorded when the band were on hiatus from their day jobs. Using samples from such disparate sources as The Outer Limits and the British TV show Planet Fashion, TV Mania’s pastiche of cool beats and melodic hooks proved more prescient than its creators could anticipate at the time. “It was innocently masquerading as an art rock project, but there was a deep concept behind it all”, explains Cuccurullo. “We were envisioning a world where a family would give up their day–to–day privacy and allow their existence to be televised to the masses, and this was two years before Truman showed and four years before Survivor. Now everyone is giving away their most intimate details online and on reality TV”. Originally created for the Broadway stage as the music to a “bizarre TV soap opera”, the tracks tell the tale of Cathy and Ray (named from the cathode ray tube) and their two children Sassy and Snoop, a fame–hungry family who gives away their freedom to scientists in exchange for reality show fame. Depressed and obsessed, Cathy indulges in a diet of pharmaceutical pills, while her religious husband is plagued with nightmares and visions manifested in a game show hosted by the devil. Their video game–addicted hacker son and fame–hungry daughter are along for the ride, inspiring songs such as “Beautiful Clothes”, “I Wanna Make Films” and “People Know Your Name” in the process. The songs aligned fortuitously with the family’s story to become pivotal plot points to the family’s lives. At the time, the Internet was in its infancy, as was the concept of pharmaceuticals as a solution to everyday problems. Reality TV existed in the form of MTV’s hit The Real World, but the concept of bored housewives, teenage moms or overly tanned denizens of the Jersey shore starring in their own series seemed the stuff of science fiction, as did ordinary citizens sharing their daily thoughts and passions via Twitter, Blogspot or Flickr. “In 1996 the Internet was still in its infancy but I anticipated it was the start of a rather big phenomenon”, Rhodes explains. “I was fascinated by communication and how things were becoming more instant and this was decades before all the sites we have now to communicate in different ways”. A few months after Rhodes and Cuccurullo were done recording Bored with Prozac, a little show called Big Brother hit the airwaves, and nothing was ever quite the same. “We looked at each other in absolute disbelief”, says Rhodes, “It was an idea that was in the ether at the time. We decided to lock it in the bottom drawer whilst we changed the story”. As time went on, a fortuitous discovery of the original tapes proved songs such as the dreamy trip hop-tinged “Euphoria”, the guitar-grooved “Beautiful Clothes” and the exotically soundscaped “Grab The Sun” sounded as modern today as the time they were recorded. Says Rhodes, “When I found my DAT tape of masters I thought ‘Wow, this sounds unbelievably contemporary’. It’s literally like finding a painting and blowing the dust off of it. Times have certainly changed since we made the record, but the subject matter that inspired this album happens to be at the forefront of today’s world, so the songs have weathered the test of time in a strangely beautiful way”.
