Silver Side Productions with their act the Hidden Citizens pull together an incredible rendition of Mike and The Mechanics " Silent Running".

Breathing new life into the 80's classic, you can feel the suspense building with the female voice singing "can you hear me" before slowly transitioning into an epic crescendo. The rework is an intense and hauntingly beautiful piece of music with an orchestral drive to **** for.

According to Mke Rutherford he wanted to portray the message of the song to "what's going to happen, anarchy, the breakdown of society and to be prepared".
This is the emotion we were attempting to capture with this cover.

Silent Running originally reached number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and number 1 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, where it stayed for five weeks.
The song was also banned by the BBC during the Gulf War due to its address of war, nationalism and religion, as well as a direct reference to weaponry in the line, "There's a gun and ammunition just inside the doorway."

We are pretty confident you will be blown away by this original version!
