about

A group of friends meet up. Nothing on the album is a composition. All words and music are improvised. Sometimes people can be heard talking while others steadfastly play. This is then squeezed into a stylish garment if possible.

There are angry rants, sweet melodies, wonderful words, diabolical screaches, rhythms, anthems, drones...

How does a song get its name? Because, with one exception, it was secretly named before it was improvised.

Track Name: Every Word - featuring Gareth
It seemed that I was walking through
The deserted little avenue
[…]
Clothed in dirty rags and looking ill
What were they doing sir
It was eighteen hundred and thirty two
You can have a potato for joining our school
As long as we can beat you
[…]
Track Name: Complete Without Squeezing - featuring Gareth
I’m a constant reminder
Of those oh so heady days
Of thatcher and the miner’s strike
I’ve taken purple haze
[…]
the punk rock generation
with tattoos on my arm
An ex peace convoy hippie
Who dances in the nude
When people make their minds up
On what should be done
With my hedonistic lifestyle
My vision of fun
[…]

Track Name: Pleased with Pleasure featuring Gareth
"...oh lord, I don't want to be a pest."
Track Name: A Night Where There's Nobody - featuring Gareth
I will write a different lyric
I'll cement it to my pen
[...]
Track Name: Squire Padlock - featuring Geoff
...I thought the world would get, inevitably, a better place.
Track Name: Sold as Golden - featuring Gareth
(4:35) - "you build no tower, no tower can fall..."
Track Name: Build with Benjamin - featuring Gareth
slleps with the flowers of a million birds
Track Name: Fruits of Gloom - featuring Geoff
Paracite,
Paracite,
Capitalism is a constantly evolving paracite,
Fill your life, with unattainable greed,
It all comes home
You've got to go in debt to have a fun time
You have to be in debt to have a fun time
And to feel good about yourself
Track Name: Take and Taken - featuring Mike
Oh my god
It’s happening
All over
Are we going to take it?

“moving in directions of positivity”
“stun the world with your indifference”
”catapult mentality into austerity”
crap on your crap”
[…]
sing songs of wisdom,
“I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE SAYING”
Track Name: Indelible Inevitability - featuring Andrew
Feels like familiar territory
Feels like familiar territory
Feels like familiar territory
Feels like familiar territory
Feels like familiar territory
Feels like familiar territory
Feels like familiar territory
Feels like familiar territory
and then along came johnson
Track Name: It is Not What it Isn't - featuring Mike
America’s great
Oh yeah!
We’re going to conquer the world
America’s great
Don’t we just love America?
You Americans if you don’t love America then you’re not Americans
If you don’t love America then you’re going to be shot

We are all great
Except those people who aren’t American
And even some Americans who aren’t great
I know lots of Americans that aren’t great
I’m going to get rid of those Americans
They’re traitors
They are destroying us
We’re going to fight back
We’re going to build walls
We’ve got to make sure we’re on top
We’ve got to bash the bastards

I’m great
I’ve been great for a long time
In fact I’ve always been great
In fact I’m been greater than anyone has ever ever ever been great
I’m just so great
You do all love me don’t you?
You do !?
You do all love me?
Because I’m great
[laughs]
Thank god for America
We’re going to save the world
At least we’re going to save the world for Americans
Fuck everybody else

Land of hope and glory
Mother of the free

I’ve got a woman
I’ve got a woman
I’ve got a woman in the basement
Oh yeah
We’ve all got women in basements
We’ve got more basements than we’ve got women
Oh no, you can’t say that, it’s outrageous
You shouldn’t be outrageous
We don’t want to be outrageous around here
She can look after all of us

Evening all
