Mellow rocksteady to full throttle thrash, but mainly levelling out in the Ska/Punk area - think Rancid, Specials, Inner Terrestrials and Crass, but as far and wide as The Paragons to Discharge.

Biography

We are a 5 piece ska/punk/thrash outfit influenced by the likes of Madness, The Jam, Metallica, Motorhead, The Specials and many others. Our music ranges from rocksteady ballad to balls on the wall thrash. We've been lucky enough to share the stage with many awesome bands including: Andy T, Asian Dub Foundation, Astronauts, Bad Manners, The Beat, Buzzcocks, Dr & The Medics, Eastfield, Ed Tudor-Pole, Eureka Machines, Goldblade, Highliners, Inner Terrestrials, Jaya The Cat, John Otway, Lawnmower Deth, The Lurkers, Moral Dilemma, Natural Rhythm, New Town Kings, The Offenders, One Way System, The Oppressed, Paul Carter, Poundaflesh, Random Hand, Restarts, Rico Rodriguez, Roddy Radiation, Saxon, The Selecter, Sick On The Bus, The Skints, Steve Lake (Zounds) - as his band!!, Stranglers, Subhumans, UK Subs, Virus, The Wurzels, Zounds and many many more...!!

2011 saw the self release of our first full length studio album, exciting times!

All gigs are full of energy, from a solo acoustic set to a full band explosion, there's no point coming to our gigs unless you wanna burn off some energy - we hate boring audiences, luckily we can generally kick up enough fuss to get people moving!! We play anywhere, we're not afraid to travel, we've been up and down the country - Scooter Rallies are a particular fave. So that's us - we're a straight forward band, we turn up, we play loud and fast, and we're not complicated!! This is our finest hour.

Lyrics

(G) rave

Written By: Gez Addictive

Your poundin' music fills my head
The drugs you use fill me with dread
You use your drugs to cause a trance
And that's what makes you wanna dance

Fuck off fuck off
We don't want your fuckin' rave
Fuck off fuck off
You'll send me to an early grave

You're a bunch of silly shits
Your flashin' lights make me have fits
You dance and dance you have no rest
Because you think you're all the best

Fuck off fuck off
We don't want your fuckin' rave
Fuck off fuck off
You'll send me to an early grave

Rawr rawr rawr rawr rawr rawr rawr
Rawr rawr rawr rawr rawr rawr rawr
Rawr rawr rawr rawr rawr rawr rawr
Rawr rawr rawr rawr raaaawr

Fuck off fuck off
We don't want your fuckin' rave
Fuck off fuck off
You'll send me to an early grave

All I Want

Written By: Gez Addictive

All I want is a world without war
All I want is no fighting no more
All I want is the air to be clean
All I want is the fields to be green
All I want is a world without greed
All I want is as much as I need
All I want is a world where I’m free
All I want is to be me

Stop it, you'll ruin it for everyone

All I want is a world without waste
All I want is to reuse not replace
All I want is security and health
All I want is them to stop amassing wealth
All I want is a world without lies
All I want is to see with my own eyes
All I want is a world that doesn’t suck
But nobody gives a fuck

Stop it, you'll ruin it for everyone

And even though you fool yourself
Your conscience can’t deny
That bliss is ignorance and this
Is just the reason why
You spend and spend and spend and spend
But the credit’s got no limit
So the fun can never end
Then they’ve got you where they want you
And they tell you that you like it
And everything is rosy
So there's no reason to fight it
But you know it’s not reality
You know it’s all a swizz
And you feel there’s no way out of it
There never fucking is
So you suffer it in silence
Just like they paid you to
But I’m not going quietly
Cos that would never do

All I Want...

Burning Heart

Written By: Gez Addictive

Nothin' so sad as a burnin' heart
In a man with the will but he won't 'cos he can't
Well mind over matter
Can the former beat the latter
You can try and try and try again
But the burnin' heat cooks your brain

The woman with the burnin' heart feels wrong
'Cos her body's weak but her heart burns strong
She's oh so quiet
'Cos actions speak louder than the words
But her body can't make her mind be heard

The woman with the burnin' heart feels wrong
'Cos her body's weak but her heart burns strong
She's oh so quiet
'Cos actions speak louder than the words
But her body can't make her mind be heard

Nothin' so sad as a burnin' heart
In a man with the will but he won't 'cos he can't
Well mind over matter
Can the former beat the latter
You can try and try and try again
But the burnin' heat cooks your brain

Code Of Conduct

Written By: Gez Addictive

GO!

Conform and comply
To whatever you say
Prejudiced views
Directed my way
It's your code of conduct
Production line clones
Live and let live
And leave well alone

Code of conduct
Code of conduct
Code of conduct
Code of conduct

You want us to be quiet
Nice and polite
Conventional lifestyles
Straight and white
Clean cut men
All clothed in suits
With a short back and sides
And middle class roots

Code of conduct
Code of conduct
Code of conduct
Code of conduct

Women inside
Playin' good wives
Go through the motions
For the rest of their lives

Code of conduct
Code of conduuuuct

Code of conduct
Code of conduct
Code of conduct

How Can I Tell You I Hate You (without making you cry)

Written By: Gez Addictive

I try to tell you that I hate you
I try to tell you but I fail to make you realise
How can I tell you that I hate you
Without making you cry?
Oh why, does it have to be this way?

Is that all you're gonna fight the war with?
Is that all you can say?

I know you'll feel that I've betrayed you
I'd like to think just for a second I could be so kind
You know that I could never lie to you
Unless I tried, to hide
When all the words got in my way

Is that all you're gonna save the world with?
Is that all you can say...?

Hungry Little Worms (In The Soil)

Written By: Gez Addictive

Spare some change for the deranged on my street
I can't complain, I'm feeling safe on my feet
As they drag around on the piss-covered ground on my street
It's the first pound that I've found in about the last week
Oh lucky old, oh lucky old me
Take a rest take a week's holiday to the twinkle in her eye
It's all the same
Hungry Little Worms in the soil

Have a rest with the possessed on my street
TV sets, a treasure chest of repeats
I'll have two sugars and a bourbon biscuit please
While the piss-stained floor can always keep me frisky
Oh lucky old, oh lucky old you
Take a rest take a week's holiday to the twinkle in her eye
It's all the same
Hungry Little Worms in the soil

Take a rest take a week's holiday to the twinkle in her eye
It's all the same
Hungry Little Worms in the soil

Spare a change for the deranged on my street
I can't complain, I'm feeling safe on my feet
As they drag around on the piss-covered ground on my street
It's the first pound that I've found in about the last week
Oh lucky old, oh lucky old me
Take a rest take a week's holiday to the twinkle in her eye
It's all the same
Hungry Little Worms in the soil

R.I.P.

Written By: Gez Addictive

Fuck me you're dead
Fucked up in the head
Now you're just another story
About a life with no glory

You didn't learn from the news
It was just somethin' you could use
You lived life on a high
It was the only way you could get by

You didn't know which way to turn
You thought you could just live and learn
Didn't know what you were doin'
Let the others crash and burn

Now you're ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
Now it's all over
'Cos of the shit you pushed

Stranglehold

Written By: Gez Addictive

The system's got a stranglehold
Can't you fuckin' see
It wants control over everybody
But it ain't 'avin' me
It's like a noose and gettin' tighter
Every fuckin' day
To take the breath from our own lungs
So we can't 'ave our say

Well establishment can bollocks
It ain't 'avin' me
I'm workin' for a better world
Of peace and anarchy
Establishment can bollocks
It ain't 'avin' me
I'm workin' for a better world
Of peace and anarchy

Pollution's just a side effect
Of their fuckin' greed
They work to get what they all want
Instead of what we need
Fat cats, little runts
Fat twats, greedy cunts
Run this world how they see fit
And make the people live like shit

Well establishment can bollocks
It ain't 'avin' me
I'm workin' for a better world
Of peace and anarchy
Establishment can bollocks
It ain't 'avin' me
I'm workin' for a better world
Of peace and anarchy

Strength

Written By: Gez Addictive

Who the hell's there?
Who the fuck's Carole?

I got this
A whole heap of sensible
What's a goose roast
Beans from underneath

I got this
A whole heap of sensible
What's a goose roast
Beans from underneath
