about

Inspired by visions and experiences of wall to wall dancing, sweaty people, shamanic, ecstatic, of old bands playing Willie Dixon tunes and THAT old West Memphis sound, dirty and raw yet so exact and exciting, of raw emotions and the absolute need to sing and play, dance and shout to remain free.

Music undomesticated married to music modern.

Three people - two singers, Guitar and Bass, three African Bass Drums and occasional lead percussion produce a sound they like to describe as “Primal and unique, like Tom Waits throws a party for Nina Simone at a Juke Joint transported to West Africa...” - but with more guitar!

Track Name: Burn Burn
They didn’t believe me when i said - i’m too ill to get out of this bed - say they saw me playing in the field - as if it’s some kinda fey power i wield -Put a fire under me, watch me burn - was the only way for them to learn - well, that scared me half to death - so i got outta bed n i left -

Burn burn if you fey then burn
If you human than you safe from harm

Those folks arrived home to a dreadful sight - took me burning turf to put things to rights - was screech an a bang n an awful cry - what seemed a dead child began to fly - As it rose it looked me in the eye - I knew it was just a matter of time - rabbits foot, heather in a bag - touching wood, counting black cats -

Burn burn if you fey then burn
If you human than you safe from harm

Time passed and I thought i was cool - but of course i behaved like a fool - fell asleep at dusk, under a tree - woke up sick there damn sore in need - I took to my bed and there i did stay - till the fey took my choices away - I could see there was no return - it was dead of the fever or dead getting burned -

Burn burn if you fey then burn
If you human than you safe from harm x2
Track Name: Howlin' For My Darlin'
She's hot like red pepper. Sweet like cherry wine.
I'm so glad she love me. Love me all the time.
She's my little baby, sweet as she can be.
All this love she's got, do belongs to me.
If you hear me howlin', calling on my darling.

Every time she kiss me, she makes the lights go out.
From early in the morning, she makes me jump and shout.
This bad love she got, makes me laugh and cry.
Makes me really know, that I'm too young to die.
If you hear me howlin', calling on my darling.
Track Name: Fantasy Blues
This train running on dragon fuel - breathin fire on it’s way to you - boats floating in a purple sky - carryin cargos may take a while

Ain’t woken up yet - fantasy blue(s)
Ain’t woken up yet - fantasy blue(s)

I hold you your skin turns to a river - i jump in it’s cold and i shiver - all water leads to something at the centre - you must be empty before you can enter

Multi colored stairways down into my soul - huge machines poised ready to roll - i see voices, taste my future - all my possibilities it’s nice to meetya

clouds burnin in the sky at dawn - moon falls and my eyes turn - towards myself his eyes are red - i look away and look at something else instead

From the ground comes a blue fire - secret waves takin me on higher - it’s my rebirth funeral pyre - dulcet tones on the cosmic lyre
Track Name: Down The Road
Please note, this are the original written lyrics, actual lyrics on the song are likely to be very different ;-)

I travelled up - I travelled down - But in the end now - You messed me around

Backdown the road I go x 2

Tears fallin - On the side of the road - I’m at my legs end, got nowhere to go

Backdown the road I go x 2

What makes you think, I wanna hear the good news - Just because I lucked out n got a ride with you

Backdown the road I go x 4

(Instrumental)

Been a long time comin - No rest or ease - End up sleepin on an island - Lord If you please

Backdown the road I go x 2

Truck full of fruit - Water down on my head - Turn round the corner - Nearly wind up dead

Backdown the road I go x 2

Took my life in my hands - So many times - hands rested in the laps of the gods - Not just me

Backdown the road I go x 4
