about

Recorded in 2009 - 2011.

"It’s mesmerising. It’s the musical equivalent of trying to catch a rock from the top of a 20-story building. No-one knows why you’re there to catch it, but if you don’t it’ll seriously hurt someone. " - Stereoboard Review.

Track Name: Match of the Day Background Music
We've got designs on you
Oh yeah
And your eyes
All your eyes

You will find our grasp has
Exceeded all we reached for
You could be the subject
It's music for the people
To cap our Brit Award we've
Provided parts of ourselves
To be the background music
On Match of the Day

Who could it be
In this elaborate story setting?
It's you
Who are you?
Track Name: Guttersniper
I am the title character.
Bring out your mortals!
Being alive, they will be dead soon anyway,
May as well provide a chortle.
(Hahaha!)

Stifle your loss! Stifle your loss!

Mother, I want it,
I need, it's restorative.
Mother, unhand me,
Those terms are perjorative.
It's precious, it's giving, it's something worth owning,
It will arouse my contemporaries at clonings.
Track Name: Everything's Just Peachy
I'm driving a house
I'm flying a tree
I'm going to teach a unicorn to sew
I'm persuading the government to adopt a range of
Progressive social
welfare policies
I'm going to lick my elbow
I just licked my elbow
I tamed the jabberwocky
and I taught it empathy
I wrote a play
Just the other day
It's got vital observations about
our society
Yes


I invented chocolate
that makes you get thinner
If you don't mind raining lard bombs from your bowels
I spread my wealth
All amongst the homeless
In the form of pure ethanol
I told the world
I had the cure for cancer
Then I told the press that you simply had to pray
I lay awake
Fists clenching and unclencing
Silently screaming as tears bleed from my eyes.
Track Name: The Sexual Freedom of Cats
You would, she said
If you could, she said
Cats are just people without restrictions

The sexual freedom of cats

The pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty kitty
Is crunchy crunchy crunchy crunchy crunchy crunchy tasty
Come on

The sexual freedom of cats

And do you love your children?
Your pretty crunchy children
Or are they there to be gnawed and ignored
By anyone who isn't busy loving you

The sexual freedom of cats

We all know that cats would vote Conservative
We all know that cats would vote Conservative
We all know that cats would vote Conservative
Track Name: Sanctuary
Oh my! She's aloof, and he's aloof.
Oh my! She's a wolf
And he's a sheep in wanker's clothing;
Your ilk are ripe for stoning,
I'll bring the rock.

(Here comes the rock.)

You were sadly spent in Kent,
Daddy owned a park in Berkshire,
Strove to grow in Kelvingrove,
And there's probably a posh part of Wales.

(I'm not doing this to be difficult,
All i did was say,
You're the reason
This town
Is like a daily bastard sanctuary)

Oh my! She's aloof, and he's aloof.
Oh my! She's a wolf
And he's a sheep in wanker's clothing;
Your ilk are ripe for stoning,
I'll bring the rock.
