about

We're so excited for you to hear our new album :D Here's some stuff about it:

The album was recorded in Bristol, in January 2019 in Free House Studios. It was completed in July with mastering by industry legend John Davis (Led Zeppelin, Gorillaz, The Killers, etc. etc.), accompanied by a spectacular array of artwork by Lee Hodges.
The album follows their debut album ‘Tea Your Mind’ (2016). The intervening years have seen the band establish themselves as a popular festival/party band, whose high-energy performances now include roughly 100 festival appearances (including Glastonbury, Boomtown, WOMAD, Secret Garden Party, Shambala, Belladrum, Wilderness, Nozstock, and Goulash Disko, to name just a few), plus shows all over the UK and a few ventures further afield.

A ridiculous genre-bending video for their song ‘Pandemonium’ has just been released as the first single from the album. Irreverently combining folk, ska, rock and gypsy jazz, it's been a highlight of their live set since summer 2018, and has had many a festival bouncing in a frenzy! The spectacularly silly video sees the band channelling OTT glam metal rockers, self-absorbed 90's pop stars, blingy rappers and uncharacteristically undemonstrative classical musicians – in other words, everything but their usual bouncy selves.

Track Name: Mutiny
Disturbance in the ranks
There’s whisper of riot, disturbing the quiet
Rebellions hot on the lips
Everywhere you turn, it’s starting to stir

This is a mutiny,
Yeah we’re breaking free
It’s time to disagree, ohh
Won’t answer to no-body
We’ll throw them to the sea
This is a mutiny

The calm is over, it’s time for the storm
Time for confusion, no more delusion
Swords drawn we call to arms
Revolution is at hand, if we all take a stand

This is a mutiny,
Yeah we’re breaking free
It’s time to disagree, ohh
Won’t answer to no-body
We’ll throw them to the sea
This is a mutiny

Laugh in the face of danger
We won’t back down now
This is a game changer
All or nothing now

This is a mutiny,
Yeah we’re breaking free
It’s time to disagree, ohh
Won’t answer to no-body
We’ll throw them to the sea
This is a mutiny
Track Name: Pandemonium
You can taste it, taste it in the air
A whisper on the wind, heard from everywhere

Will you come, when you’re called
He calls to one and all

It’s the kind of blow out that goes on for days and days
Twisted round in circles, getting lost in the haze
Mr Pandemonium throws the best gigs around
You’ll be soaring so high that you never come down

A riot you fall into, no clue when you’ll fall out
A sordid, rabbled taboo, that we just can’t live without

Will you come, when you’re called
He calls to one and all

It’s the kind of blow out that goes on for days and days
Twisted round in circles, getting lost in the haze
Mr Pandemonium throws the best gigs around
You’ll be soaring so high that you never come down

Pandemonium
Pandemonium....
Track Name: Little Words
Now we’ve all had them (hey, hey)
In some quiet hour (hey, hey)
Sneaking into corners (hey, hey)
Climb the highest tower (hey, hey)

(Hey, hey) x4

Just hear them ringing (hey, hey)
Ringing through your mind (hey, hey)
There’s no escape dear (hey, hey)
You have been assigned (hey, hey)

I feel them coming
No time to retreat
Creeping up the stairway
When I’m half asleep

(Little words) creep into my window
(Little words) every night
(Little words) they just burrow
(Little words) until it’s light

(Hey hey) x 4

I feel them coming
No time to retreat
Creeping up the stairway
When I’m half asleep

(Little words) creep into my window
(Little words) every night
(Little words) they just burrow
(Little words) until it’s light

Little words, in my head
They won’t stop, till they’ve been said
Little words, in my head
They won’t stop, till they’ve been said

(Little words) creep into my window
(Little words) every night
(Little words) they just burrow
(Little words) until it’s light
Track Name: Rabbit Hole
A few down at the local was how her evening began
And things were looking hopeful, she even had an escape plan
But the clock it kept on ticking, the drinks were pouring in
And when it started to kick in, that’s when he night really begins

Round and round, hit the ground, tumbling like a domino
Upside down, going underground, down the rabbit hole
Oh, the further she goes
Down, down the rabbit hole, ohhh

As she trips along the pavement, the world seems to change in size
Everything is transforming, she’s got stars in her eyes
Pipe smoking faces rush by, grinning like the insane
Trying to focus on the clock, but the smoke is filling her brain

Round and round, hit the ground, tumbling like a domino
Upside down, going underground, down the rabbit hole
Oh, the further she goes
Down, down the rabbit hole, ohhh
Track Name: Fools Masquerade
Girls in white satin with long flowing hair
Lurk in the shadows away from the glare
Of the bright lights that dance all around
Have you never been to this part of town

Come & see what we see
Our world of curiosity

The monsters are out, they’re prowling the streets
The whacks and the weirdos, the nuts and the freaks
So gather around, no don’t be afraid
It’s time once again for the Fools Masquerade

Throw on your guise and join in the fun
There’s room here for all, we won’t stop till it’s done
Painted faces and glittering skin
This is the place where the madness begins

Come & see what we see
Our world of curiosity

The monsters are out, they’re prowling the streets
The whacks and the weirdos, the nuts and the freaks
So gather around, no don’t be afraid
It’s time once again for the Fools Masquerade
Track Name: Eye of the Storm
That silence you hear
Just before the rain
Blackened skies seem to charge in
Roaring with no restrain
So batten down those hatches
The clouds won’t hold it back
It’s time every man for himself
As the first lightning cracks

We’re in the eye of the storm
We’re in the eye of the storm, ohh

No up or down here
Just a bitter cold
That wind keeps roaring through
Blows right through the storm
The rain is pouring now
No sight of the dawn
Hold tight and take heart love
His gaze is still so strong

We’re in the eye of the storm
We’re in the eye of the storm, ohh

It’s the silence you hear, just before the rain
It’s the silence you hear, just before the rain

We’re in the eye of the storm
We’re in the eye of the storm, ohh
We’re in the eye of the storm
Track Name: Gamble
Tonight’s the right time, to take a little flutter with me
If you play your cards right, you’ll win big I guarantee

It’s not a choice of what is right or wrong
The stakes are pretty high, you just flip the coin
The time is now, come on and place your bets
Play the games with me, you’ll have no regrets

Take a little gamble, take a little spin
You could loose it all but you might just win
It’s all just waiting for you, fortune and fame
Roll the dice with me, come on and play the game

This isn’t something, that you want to rush
There’s such a fine line, between truth & trust

There’s two sides to every story,
Just a small step between grief and glory
The time is now, come on and place your bets
Play the games with me, you’ll have no regrets

Take a little gamble, take a little spin
You could loose it all but you might just win
It’s all just waiting for you, fortune and fame
Roll the dice with me, come on and play the game
Track Name: The Spider and the Fly
I’ve been watching you from afar
Can’t help but think how dazzling you are
Won’t you come upstairs with me
I’ll show you things you won’t believe

I’ve heard tales of dames like you
You offer men dreams but none of it’s true
If I come up to your bed
I’m just another fool mislead

Some words are not gospel, they will lead you astray
Beware of the charmers, they just want new pray
We’ve all been seduced by those in disguise
So goes the tale of the spider and the fly

Can’t you see how great it would be
How can I resist
Oh, I’ll set you free
If you take my hand, no you won’t regret
Maybe just once
Oh you’ll never forget
Lay next to me, no don’t be afraid
How can I be sure
Oh I just want to play
You’ve got me, I’m yours, so what shall we do?
Just sit there and lay back the fun will ensue

Some words are not gospel, they will lead you astray
Beware of the charmers, they just want new pray
We’ve all been seduced by those in disguise
So goes the tale of the spider and the fly
Track Name: Junkyard Lovesong
Sit down and picture the scene
A roving king and his junkyard queen
Stand with their heads held high
Seeing things they’ll never see
Might be a dumping ground, to those around
But to them, it’s a love story

It’s safer in here my darling
Much better with me
Here in my castle of cast offs
Floating on the debris

Stand with their heads held high
Knowing things they’ll just ignore
In our dumping ground, we’ll keep our crowns
Me & my Vagabond Amour

We’ll live in the wreckage baby
Of what was before
I won’t want for anything else
No cuz it’s you I adore

Stand with their heads held high
Knowing things they’ll just ignore
In our dumping ground, we’ll keep our crowns
Me & my Vagabond Amour
Track Name: Comply
How are we meant to know
Which way the wind will blow
Now we’re running out of time
To decide

Too late to change our minds…

(The rules they say we must comply) The rules they say we must comply
(The rules they say we must comply) Saying that all hands are tied
(The rules they say we must comply) a world ruled by fear is drawing near now
(The rules they say we must comply) It’s just a shot in the dark
(The rules they say we must comply) A game of falling cards
(The rules they say we must comply) But we’ve no idea where to go from here now

Where has common sense gone
Has logic been forgotten
We’ve lost the plot and
Can’t see a way out

(The rules they say we must comply) The rules they say we must comply
(The rules they say we must comply) Saying that all hands are tied
(The rules they say we must comply) a world ruled by fear is drawing near now
(The rules they say we must comply) It’s just a shot in the dark
(The rules they say we must comply) A game of falling cards
(The rules they say we must comply) But we’ve no idea where to go from here now
