Quantum Democracy (3:53)

Cover of Remnants

From Remnants

Quantum Democracy is the second track on Self Diagnosis’ 2007 album Remnants.

Built around an ominous guitar riff in the verses, this instrumental track is one of the better showcases of the band’s musical potential from the album. The foreboding tone carries over into the bridge before finally exploding into the drum-heavy chorus part. Unbeknownst to many, the memorable guitar riff featured in the verse was originally intended to feature on another Self Diagnosis song, In The Dark, but was switched to Quantum Democracy after the riff was thought to be too ominous for a love song. Quantum Democracy remains a live favourite and continues to undergo changes in terms of its instrumentation and structure. A definitive version, featuring a revised arrangement and the inclusion of vocals, is expected to feature on the band’s next album, Undinal Songs.

Quantum Democracy, like most of Remnants, was written for the failed rock opera The Archive. Initially intended to feature anti-political lyrics, the song is written by Kit within the rock opera as a means of rebelling against the oppressive government.
