about

"Wait, wait, wait....you want how many guitars on this thing?!?!"

What you've got here is a poor man's Wall of Sound, with guitars of every stripe ("normal", baritone, bass, ostrich, 12 string....), double drumming captured live, and layer upon layer of vocals all lovingly captured on aging 2-inch tape in a room with a large chunk of Australian rock history etched into its walls. Just do what the song says and no one gets hurt.

Track Name: Shake, Shake
Shake, Shake

Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake…

Paranoia looks good in a dress
a little confusion goes a long way
I already asked her, from the rafters
I’m still swinging my heart away

Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake…

this ain’t my first day at the rodeo, but, I’ll play
this moonlight serenade
junk mail decorations
set the scene, I’m on my way

Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake…

Objection…sustained!
Objection…sustained!
What’s going on? What time do you get off today?

It’s a straight shot to the bed spins
you’re free to join me if you’re keen
an awkward prince on my last legs
a little confusion goes a long way.

Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake, shake…
Track Name: Nothing Ever Happens, It Only Seems To (acoustic)
Nothing Ever Happens, It Only Seems To

flat tyres & prescription speed
a thousand miles go by in
an hour of cheap TV
coz it don’t take much
to lose my place
when you’re sleeping
or when you’re awake

time doesn’t pass it stops & starts & stutters
and I repeat myself when I get nervous

conning me with a line of dirt
I’ve done my best and now it’s worse
it’s the same as it was before
we’re tamed and then we’re bored
I see you clench your fists
for whatever good it’s worth

even the softest silks against my skin
feels like 100,000 pins

nothing ever happens, it only seems to...

how many days with that same expression?
washing our hair in a public restroom

flat tyres and prescription speed
a thousand hours go by in
I smeared off all your make-up
you did the same to me

time doesn’t pass it stops and starts and stutters
and I repeat myself when I get nervous

nothing ever happens, it only seems to...
