Plastic Tofu is the professional name of Chicago-based Punk Rock musician and songwriter Janusz Domaszuk. Since his 2015 debut EP “Freedom,” Janusz has been creating classic-sounding Punk anthems with current-day lyrical significance. With all the bombast of 80’s hardcore bands like Circle Jerks and Black Flag he delivers socially conscious diatribes, commentaries and manifestos railing against the inequities of our modern world.
“Fighting For Life” is the latest single and video from Plastic Tofu, released worldwide to all major streaming services on April 21, 2021. Produced and recorded by Andrew Pelletier, the track opens with an explosive cacophony of guitars and drums. In short order the song kicks into an onslaught of power chords, high volume melodic hooks and a pounding rhythm.
Lyrically the singer launches an unrelenting attack on America’s hypocritical love of money and war over its stated goals of freedom and equality. As he sings in the refrain, “We are not what we seem!” The “Fighting For Life” video was filmed and Edited by Richard Shell. It features historical news footage and vintage black and white Hollywood reels spliced together with original and stock footage. The short film mirrors the lyrics’ hard hitting message.
