KAOS Video Introductory Text [this text is shown at the beginning of the Radio KAOS video] Radios KAOS is the story of twins Benny, a welsh coalminer, and Billy, his handicapped brother. Billy is special, he has the super natural ability to receive RADIO WAVES directly into his mind. The pit closes, the village is dying. One night, drunk, after taking Billy on a pub crawl, Benny's anger overflows, as an act of defiance he smashes the window of a hi-fi shop and takes a cordless phone. When the police come for Benny he hides the phone under the seat of Billy's wheelchair. Benny goes to prison; Billy is sent to LA to live with his great uncle David, who had gone to America during the War to work on the Atom Bomb project and stricken with remorse after Hiroshima, had never returned to Wales. Billy is homesick, the cultural upheaval moving from South Wales to SUNSET STRIP makes him realise how many of us are forced from HOME by the market forces. Billy experiments with the cordless phone, he learns to make calls, he accesses computers and speech synthesisers now he can communicate. He makes friends with Jim the DJ at Radio KAOS a renegade rock station. Billy developes his power. He learns control. From the traffic lights of LA to the most sophisticated military computers the world of electronics becomes his oyster. Billy decides to shock the world out of its market dominated, war mongering attitude, by simulating a global nuclear attack. FOUR MINUTES and counting. Silence, whiteout, blockout. "I just wanted everyone to know how it felt, you, me and the POWERS THAT BE! We will learn our lesson THE TIDE IS TURNING."
