about

Our first recordings for quite a few years...hence the title.

All 4 studio tracks were recorded, mixed and mastered by the lovely Matt Pumpkin at Made Of Ale Studios, Manchester, Bristol and Wootton Bassett.
We've been playing 3 of these songs live for a few years now but never got round to getting them recorded, the other track (Standby To Die) has never been played live.

As for the live tracks, they were the better sounding ones out of shedloads that we've collected over the years and though they're down as 3 tracks there are actually 5.

**For anyone who would rather have a CD version, there will be a limited run of CD's from next week**

Hope you like them and we hope it's not so long til we get some more recordings done.

Cheers folks!

Track Name: Swamp Jacket
Cool breeze on this warm night, get down get out of sight
No-one knows that we were there, drive around without a care
In a while there’ll be no trace, fuck the bastard in his resting place
Got the body, the bag, crate of beers, 20 grand and no ideas

Our friend is laid out in the back, laid out with the tyre and jack
His only coat’s his body bag
Can’t pretend to care, coz we’re glad
Travelling down this dusty road, a story that can’t be told
Our dear friend is out of luck
Don’t ask why, no-one gives a fuck

No tail lights till the break of dawn, don’t look round coz we’ll be gone
Tomorrow’s so far away, so far away I just can’t see
Just concerned with the here and now
Focus, don’t know how
In a while there’ll be no trace, fuck the bastard in his resting place

Goodbye our good intentions
Don’t look back, just walk away

The only sign that we were there, tyre treads, warm earth
Coldness from our friend inside, should’ve listened, wouldn’t have died
Lonely now in his resting place, in a while there’ll be no trace
Got the body, the bag, crate of beers, 20 grand and some big ideas
Track Name: Inside / Outside
Will you ever learn?
Will you ever see?
The things you place a value on are never gonna be.
You always gotta take
You always did before
Your friends they offered everything and still you wanted more.
There's hatred in your words
Anger in your voice
There's bitterness and bile but you made your own choice.
Will you ever learn?
Will you ever see?
Stupidity's your middle name you fucking cunt!

You can blame me, hate me, slag me, slate me
You can beat me and you can kill me
But it's never gonna be the way you want it to be

Inside (Outside) pick me on the winning side
Inside outside

Will you ever learn?
Will you ever see?
You fucked it up yourself with your negativity.
So paranoid and wrong
Angry at the world
Look a little closer and you'll see what caused your fall.
There's nothing wrong with me
It's all inside your head
Accusing me of this n that and things I never said
Will you ever learn?
Will you ever see?
Stupidity's your middle name you fucking cunt!

You can blame me, hate me, slag me, slate me
You can beat me and you can kill me
But it's never gonna be the way you want it to be

Inside (Outside) selfish talk of suicide
Inside outside
Track Name: Standby To Die
Pressure (pressure)
Builds and builds and builds when will it stop?

I feel so hot and I can't cool down
Right now I choke but soon I'll drown
Have I gone too far to turn around?
Going down, going down, going down

Standby - it's time to die
One last kiss and one last goodbye
Standby - it's time to die
It's much too late to be asking why.

Voices (voices)
Droning on and on and on and on

My head's on fire and I've lost the plot
My heart is broke and my nerves are shot
Have I gone too far to stop the rot?
Going down.

The point of no return's in sight
I don't have the strength to win this fight
It's time to crash turn out the lights
Gonna die, gonna die, gonna die!
Track Name: Happy Days
Inside, outside, upside down
All my life I've played the clown
I'll end it all in this dead-end (fucking) town

Nightmare stuck inside this hole
My brain is mush, I've lost control
How much further will I fall?

So much shit stuck in my head, I wish that I was dead
Happy days

This way, that way, where to go?
Will I learn? I just don't know
Everything's I told you so

All these nights, all these regrets
I tried so hard but can't forget
All caught up with me in the end
Track Name: The Doomy Punk Song / No Brakes (Live)
NO BRAKES

Childhood memories, fun and games
The sun was shining every day
Inseperable as we charged around
Knocking the obstacles (other kids) to the ground

No brakes - got no brakes
No brakes - can't slow down
No brakes - got no brakes
Can't stop, won't stop, take you down.

Full of beans we hit top speed
Unstoppable, two-man wrecking spree
As all around us targets fell
We'd grin from ear-to-ear and yell
Track Name: Never Say Never / Zombie Holocaust (Live)
NEVER SAY NEVER

Never stop thinking, thinking 'bout you
Heart misses a beat when i'm talking to you, cos I'm lost in you

Never say never, it's not over, I don't want this to end
Never say never, it's not over, i just can't be your friend

The white lady sings but it's all in vain
She'll carry on and so will i, cos it's worth the pain

ZOMBIE HOLOCAUST

Keep looking forward, looking high
Find a new way of getting high
Rise above the chaos for a while
Get back in the chase

Into oblivion we will drive
Wasted on the dash, truth on our minds
Tick, tick, tock we will not stop
Get back in the race

The truth is dead
Just us alive
Welcome to the rest of your life
Track Name: We'll Free The Shit Out Of You
We'll bring you peace
If you want it or not
And you'll be grateful
When your children are shot

We come in peace, we come to free you
We come in peace, we'll free the shit out of you

Cities are burning
Smoke fills the sky
For peace and for freedom
Thousands will die
