JOB FOR A COWBOY Spreads Conspiracy Theory On 'Genesis'

JOB FOR A COWBOY lead singer Jonny Davy recently spoke to ChartAttack.com about the band's lyrical approach on its latest CD, "Genesis". Even though the album isn't being promoted as a concept effort, the songs clearly tell a story of technology, religion and corrupt government, and how they combine to lead to the end of civilization.

"I spent a really long time on the lyrics," says Davy, who's the band's sole songwriter. "At a pretty young age I realized that I was an atheist. Over time, I read up on a lot of religions and religious conspiracies and conspiracies in general.

"The record is actually about a biochip called the 'VeriChip' that's being implanted [into people] and used for medical identification and money currency purposes. People feel it's an invasion of privacy, and the other aspect is religious leaders have come out against it for fear that this is going to be a fulfillment of a prophecy in the Book Of Revelations.

"The VeriChip is actually being used today, and eventually they want to use it to implant in people's arms or hands. So let's say you walk to a grocery store and, instead of paying with money, you walk through a scanner and take the money out of your account. On the religious side, you can turn on American Christian television and they'll be talking about it on their little talk shows. Religious leaders fear that the Antichrist is going to use the chip to control every man and woman in America and later the whole world."
