about

"Something wicked this way comes. I am fairly certain that had The Scratch been around at punk rock prime time, they would have given the likes of The Buzzcocks and The Who a jolly good run for their money. It has been some time since this more classic style of punk rock has graced the airwaves, and I think that really, it’s about time. Make way for The Scratch. ‘THIS ALBUM IS A SHINING BEACON OF PUNK ROCK FINESSE’"
[Tiff Woosley TSM Radio]

Track Name: You want the World
Craving from insipid small world views
hide your senses from the news
the truth is we’re happy with the blues
and always wanna be in other peoples shoes
You want the world as long as its you shaped x2
Under the skin we’re all the same
bits and peices caused us shame
and when are excuses seem so lame
there’s always someone else to blame
tug the heartstrings with both hands
and cheer the gladiators from the stands
endlessly forming futile plans
while leaving temporary footprints in the sand
Track Name: Independent unrepentant
When it all get too much
And I can’t stand the hype
You are my salvation
You show me wrong from right
When all these false dawns
Lay gaping and there’s nothing left to trust
My only means of escaping
is vinyl primal lust
We’re Independent and unrepentant
We’re Independent are you?
We’re Independent and unrepentant
So what the hell are you… gonna do?
Today was like any other day
I had to get my fix
So I went to the local ‘superstore’
To re-leave my teenage kicks
But all the wracks and recommendations
The neon and the sales just left me cold
Salvations train had left the rails
The spell had lost its hold
It’s the pain, it’s the inspiration
That keeps this fire alive
Without diversification
You and I will not survive.
Track Name: Freakshow
Come and see!!!!!!!
Flashing flags and fashioned fags
come and see the freak in me
Rags, shags and hand bags
this century is meant to be
Dyed hair pickers and flares
At least when someone stares, then somebody cares
Come and see what’s meant to be
The freak show of the century!
I think you’ll find they don’t even know
Their own minds, step out side
Let the foolish run and hide
Track Name: Against the Grain
who ray? it’s xmas day
all the ones u never see r comin over to stay
oh my int it grand
you talk until your hoarse but still they don’t understand
All my life i’ve been tryin to these things
All my life
Hey yeah ain’t it bland
the ones with no idea stick they’re heads in the sand
Oh my it’s inane
why dyou always wanna go against the grain
Track Name: Destroyed by the Look of Love
Look out!
Tonight, I don’t wanna come home (cos I love you)
Don’t want you to see me this way
But if I don’t come back tonight
I’ll be alright and we’ll return to the joys of yesterday
When I’m alone I watch the sky
The stars are shinning high and bright
The Joys of yesterday
Track Name: Girl's World
I miss you in the middle of the night
is that right, cos you are so bright
I miss you in the middle of the day
What can I say you blow me away
I miss you when you’re not here am I clear
I think I’ll need another year will I pay?
Maybe on another day, what can I say?
You blow me away
You’re a good girl
I’m more a girl’s world
Like a flag pole with it’s flag unfurled
I’m so easy come on appease me
You’re a nightmare bright and breezy
Track Name: Flicker
The tacky spendour of a seedy hotel
a dead carnation in a ragged lapel
I could tell from your demenour
that once your life was cleaner
Lord of the board
always struck the right chord
temptation makes you bored
cocky never shocking
in your fishnet stockings
The Faint flicker of a bright past
you nailed your colours to the tallest mast
The Faint flicker of a bright past
shame it was never built to last
The tacky spendour of a seedy hotel
a dead carnation in a ragged lapel
I could tell your life was cleaner
till the dabs and crabs catapulted you to hell!!!
Track Name: Whatever Happened to Friday Night
I wish I hadn’t done it last night,
but I can’t resist the shine of the bright light
my minds on fire my chest is tight
whatever happened to a friday night?
Dissatisfaction’s bourne at birth
our destiny returns too soon to earth
Hey yeah hey yeah
Hey yeah hey yeah
Track Name: Freaks of the Daylight
All the Teeterin fags
droppin there shopping bags
6 pound of squashed bananas
and ripping out the price tags
80 or 8
they all meet the same fate
queing at the bus stop
while lookin overweight
Freaks of the Daylight
How can I kick out the jams
With all these millions of prams
I’m getting very lazy
In the village of the damned
There are leasions in the regions
Of the most together legions
Whose reasons have no seasons or no soul
so it’s time for you to decide
with your arms and legs spread wide
it’s time to sell your soul to rock’n’roll
Track Name: Teen Idol
Cos of my bee stung tits
I got a paper round
i took to robbery and prostitution
cos the cap woodnt fit
and i craved cat walks i wanted
heat idols and a solution
Now I’m a Teen Idol to 300 Million
it is my pigment
that’s wot the pig meant
when he judged my performance in conclusion
I am a product
want to be noticed
and now i’ve been cloned for the revolution
Cos of my bee stung tits
I got a paper round
i took to robbery and prostitution
I am a product
want to be noticed
and now i’ve been cloned for the revolution
Now I’m a Teen Idol to 300 Million x4
Track Name: Too Busy Thinking About Me
Discordant discharge
afterbirth of answers
take a little soupcon
obliterate the dance class
high kicks hair flicks
screamin out of nose licks
cheesegrate the groove sharks
think i’ve got my card marked
Too busy, thinkin about me
Saluting our arousers
the attitude of firefly
whose legend will never die
singing about philatio
quoting lines from plato
johnny’s doin’ arter
plantin his potato
Too busy, thinkin about me
Grizzles got an owls ear
ronnie loves the weak beer
a constant crave for twisted cheer
party or get outa here
some say that flamboyance
is an annogram of arrogance
