about

Amp Magazine: ‘Yup, they manage to combine the best of the golden years of pop, punk, new wave,and good ol stomping rock, make it sound so remarkably fresh, and well, modern. Or rather, timeless. Some exquisite songwriting definitely helps. A brilliant reminder of how good guitars, bass, drums and vocals can really sound. Don’t take my word for it, track down this catchy fucker today

Track Name: Cheerleaders fighting gravity
Big cheers to the one above
For the precious and the cheaper love
The volunteers demanding unity
Cheerleaders fighting gravity

All hail the American dream
The young dancer’s lack of self-esteem
Kids faking their identities
Cheerleaders fighting gravity

Consider it
Consider it mine
Track Name: Flames crawl
What you want is all right
set your fears aside
We’re gonna make it tonight,
‘cause you are a queen by right

See the flames crawl the walls
Still our love’s waterfalls

Baby’s making me smile
but I’m still in denial
Queenie you’ve got style
Now let’s savor this for a while

See the flames crawl the walls
Still our love’s waterfalls
Track Name: Sci-Fi!
Are they black or are they white?
(Why should I bother?)
Travel at the speed of light
(Why should I bother?)
Am I really worth the probe?
(Why should I bother?)
Terror covers up our hope
(Why should I bother?)

Are they green or are they red?
(Why should I bother?)
Or just created in my head?
(Why should I bother?)
I’ve got my phaser set to stun
(Why should I bother?)
As head towards the sun
(Why should I bother?)

Why?

Sci-Fi!
Track Name: Summer is coming
If you don’t know how to hold me:
that’s all right
If you’re strong enough I’ll show you
– it ‘ll be all right

Summer’s coming
the drummer’s drumming
kids are humming
and it’s all right

To the beach is where we’re going:
that’s allright
My new Speedo I’ll be showing
– it’ll be all right

Summer’s coming
the drummer’s drumming
kids are humming
and it’s all right
Track Name: Equestrian friends
I’ve seen you right before me
The leather in your hand
About to ride a pony
About to meet a friend

And no one else will know this
There are no future plans
You leave it all behind you
You have equestrian friends

Sometimes I need to argue
I feel no real remorse
You eat your veal and chicken
I’ll settle for some horse

And no one else will know this
I have no future plans
Some have their chicken dinner
I have equestrian friends
Track Name: Bobbi Flekman
I’m feeling alone. Please pick up the phone.
I’m in love with you ooh and you’re turning me on.

A cigarette and your glove. Sniffing all of your love.
Are you receiving my call? Will you be listening at all?

I’m in love with Bobbi Flekman
Here at home I’ll be her yes-man
I’m in love with Bobbi Flekman
I just want for you to come home!

I’m bare to the bone. So come buff my chrome.
I’m in love with you ooh and you’re turning me on.

I’m feeling alone. Are you receiving my call?
I just met your dog and now we’re trying the rug.

I’m in love with Bobbi Flekman
Here at home I’ll be her yes-man
I’m in love with Bobbi Flekman
I just want for you to come home!

Bobbi Flekman!
Bobbi Flekman!
Bobbi Flekman!
Bobbi Flekman!
Track Name: Endlessly fall
I think some things are truly wonderful.
When a house is a home
where you don’t feel alone.
Should we wait and did we move at all?
When you wake from a dream
where you endlessly fall.

Maybe you’ve never felt alive at all.
And the place you call home
leaves you feeling alone.
You can wait and never move at all.
Then you’ll wake from a dream
and you’ll endlessly fall.

I’ll make it all right, I’ll make it all right,
I’ll make it all right tonight.

(you want it back….you’ll never get it back)
Track Name: Four-ten-eleven
Now I woke up, you are still here
Count: four-ten-eleven
I could just repeat that sequence
Close your eyes now Elsie

I’ll only trust you until I walk away
I’m living somewhere else
I just stumbled in today

Once again this is the last day
Count: four-ten-eleven
Little girl remains unconscious
Kiss the eyes of Elsie

I’ll only trust you until I walk away
I’m living somewhere else
I just stumbled in today
Track Name: Do you want to come?
I was having trouble sleeping.
People shouted:
‘Hey boy, do you wanna come?’
‘Watch the fireworks’ said my gunner,
‘rally onward!’
Hey boy, do you wanna come?

Is it the fireworks?
The revolution?
An explosion?
It’s the confusion!

One more night of song and laughter.
We all shouted:
‘Hey boy, do you wanna come?’
‘I think I’m hit Sir’ said the gunner,
‘watch the blood-spill’
Hey now, do you wanna come?

Is it the fireworks?
The revolution?
An explosion?
It’s the confusion!
Track Name: Old streets
If you can get him to run
he’s gonna crawl back
And if you tell him to leave
he’s gonna stay child
And if you ask him to jump
he’s gonna pull you down

To be out in the Old Streets
Have drink, have a nose-bleed
‘til we get to that fine stage
‘til we get to the right place: Down.

You’ve had enough of this fun
but still he’ll crawl back
And if you ask him polite
he’ll just be more wild
And if you tell him to run
he’s gonna pull you down

To be out in the Old Streets
Have drink, have a nose-bleed
‘til we get to that fine stage
‘til we get to the right place: Down.
Track Name: The cat's away
The first holiday alone
You spent a fortnight on your own
You were thinking
I am never going home

‘cause when today the cat’s away
You’ll make sure the mice will play
In the city
Where no parent is awake

Most important friends are here
Where you go they’re always near
Even when you are
Trembling with fear

Get ready for a holiday
We’re going crazy and the cat’s away

The Cat’s Away
The Cat’s Away
Track Name: Little thieves
Once there was a mystery
Let’s call it trust
Then there was achievement
Just before we all got lost

And along came arrogance
With a friend called lust
We’re in it for the money
And because in God we trust

We are Little Thieves
Dropping half the candy as we flee
I wish I could believe
There should be one God for all to see.

Once there was a mystery
We’ll call it trust
Then there was achievement
And then it all got lost

And along came arrogance
With a friend called lust
We’re in it for the money
And for some God we trust

We are Little Thieves
Dropping half the candy as we flee
I wish I could believe
There should be one God for all to see.
