Biography

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born. Vicious Circle, Ace Mafia's debut, is the living proof of what you can achieve when a band is together for the right reasons.

Geos, Richie Faulkner and Bruno Agra all first met in 2007 at a well known Camden Town cover band show, called Metalworks, where Richie and Bruno used to share the stage. Kay, a Canadian singer, moved to London 7 years ago to pursue his musical dream, trying to fit in with different acts, but nothing substantial enough to bring out everything he's got to give.

Four different worlds seeking the same path, and by luck, fate or just randomness, these guys got together in a tiny room in North London, and started recording some songs, even before thinking about putting a band together, due to everyone's commitments at that point. Unpretentious, no rules, just go with the flow.

A four-track EP was born called Feel The Fire and with it, the band started to be quickly known in the London rock scene. It's edgy riffs, catchy melodies and moving lyrics started gathering attention from all sorts of crowds. The band kept focused on writing more and more music and eleven tracks of visceral rock had come to life.

As the first shows were booked, Ace Mafia felt like it needed another guitar player to perfectly reproduce what they'd achieved in the album. Ben Lundy, a young, enthusiastic guitarist saw Ace Mafia's ad in one of London's newspapers and promptly answered the call, closing the circle.

Ace Mafia's self release Vicious Circle album launch party in London's famous underground venue, The Gaff, was a tremendous success, with more attendance than the permitted capacity. The band now is booking a 20 gig tour around the UK for Spring 2010.

…and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born. Ace Mafia - Vicious Circle.

April 2011 Richie Faulkner Joins the legendary JUDAS PRIEST!!! with out quiting Ace Mafia, just a break.
May 2011 Bruno Agra left the band and Jerry Sadowski Joins immediately Ace Mafia's line up officially.

At the moment preparing for Hard-Rock Hell Road Trip to Ibiza, and recording the second Album.

Best Thing

Written By: Kay Ghibli

BEST THING

Yesterday there was time to waste
Everyday pretty much the same taste
According importance to little things
Wishful thinking for little things

You’re the best thing that has ever happened to me

Saw you for the first time today
Now my life will never be the same
This feeling I cannot explain
Overwhelms me I’m forever changed

You’re the best thing that has ever happened to me

Yesterday there was time to chase
Everyday pretty much the same race
Expecting the broken and the little chains
Wishful thinking for little change

You’re the best thing that has ever happened to me

That’s happened to me

Saw you for the first time
Saw you for the last time
Saw you for the feelings I cannot explain
Saw you for the first day
Saw you for the last day
Saw you for the feelings I cannot explain

I cannot explain
I cannot explain
I cannot explain

You’re the best thing that has happened to me

Saw you for the first time today
Now my life will never be the same
This feeling I cannot explain
Overwhelms me I’m forever changed

Saw you for the first time
Saw you for the last time
Saw you for the feelings I cannot explain
Saw you for the first day
Saw you for the last day
Saw you for the feelings I cannot explain

Feel The Fire

Written By: Kay Ghibli

FEEL THE FIRE

Breathing and inhaling
It’s a vice without a price that I’m in needing
Healing for the living
Got to think twice, it’s just a vice for the living

You fee the fire
“FIRE”
You find he’s easily amused

You find that it’s over
And you find your burning over
You find that it’s over
And you find your burning over

Reach this, reach that yeah!
Here take some
Take what? From you?
I don’t think so
You don’t have to believe
What the beast inside of you can do

You feel the fire
“FIRE”
You find he’s easily amused

You find that it’s over
And you find your burning over
You find that it’s over
And you find your burning over

It’s a waste of time
I can’t keep going on and on forever anymore
It’s a waste of time
I can’t keep going on and on forever anymore

You find that it’s over
And you find your burning over
You find that it’s over
And you find your burning over

No Mre Excuses

Written By: Kay Ghibli

NO MORE EXCUSES

You have bound my heart with subtle chains
So much pleasure that it feels like pains
So entwined now that we can’t shake free
I am you and you are me

No escaping from the mess we’re in
So much pleasure that it must be sin
Because I must live with this reality
I’m yours eternally

And I know that it never felt better
All this pain that has turned into pleasure
Can’t you see that you are me

There’s no turning back we’re in this trap
No more excuses
No denying the facts with no excuses to back
No more excuses
There’s no turning back we’re in this trap
No more excuses
No denying the facts with no excuses to back
No more excuses
No more excuses

You have found my heart one rusty cage
So much pleasure that it feels like pain

And I know that it never felt better
All this pain that has turned into pleasure
Because can’t you see that I must live with this reality
I’m yours eternally

There’s no turning back we’re in this trap
No more excuses
No denying the facts with no excuses to back
No more excuses
There’s no turning back we’re in this trap
No more excuses
No denying the facts with no excuses to back
No more excuses
No more excuses

There’s no turning back we’re in this trap
No more excuses
No denying the facts with no excuses to back
No more excuses

And I know that I never felt better
All this pain that has turned into pleasure
I’m set free and I am to be
Can’t you see that I must live with this reality?

There’s no turning back we’re in this trap
No more excuses
No denying the facts with no excuses to back
No more excuses

There’s no turning back
No denying the facts
No excuses to back
No more excuses

There’s no turning back
No denying the facts
No excuses to back
No more excuses
No more excuses

Someday

Written By: Kay Ghibli

SOMEDAY

Getting into my car, with nothing in sight
Starting up the engine, the key is turned right

A million years, a million tears
Could never heal the pain
I thought that I couldn’t do you wrong
It’s driving me insane
In a no win situation and there is no destination
When trust has all but gone
We carry on

Breathing all along
I try to hang on this is where I belong
Someday our time will come
And I know what could be done
I try to cling on start where it all begun
Someday our time will come

Gripping the leather steering wheel, my sharp bone knuckles turn white
Checking my shattered review mirror, nothing but everything in my sight

A million years, a million tears
Could never heal the pain
I thought that I couldn’t do you wrong
It’s driving me insane
In a no win situation and there is no destination
When trust has all but gone
We carry on

Breathing all along
I try to hang on this is where I belong
Someday our time will come
And I know what could be done
I try to cling on start where it all begun
Someday our time will come

A million years, a million tears
Thought that I couldn’t do you wrong
It’s driving me insane
In a no win situation and there is no destination

Breathing all along
I try to hang on this is where I belong
Someday our time will come
And I know what could be done
I try to cling on start where it all begun
Someday our time will come

So Cruel

Written By: Kay Ghibli

SO CRUEL

Things don’t always turn out to be
The way we lead ourselves to believe
Holograms of hope deceive
Nothing more than overdue dreams

It’s so cruel
It’s so so cruel

I need to find myself again
I need to be and not pretend
Look in the mirror and find that friend
Who I used to look up to back then

When I was young and rich with time
And people said that I was in my prime
How can you say the chance has passed me by?
When the same fire still burns deep inside

It’s so cruel
It’s so so cruel

I need to find myself again
I need to be and not pretend
Look in the mirror and find that friend
Who I used to look up to back then

I need to find myself again
I need to be and not pretend
Who I used to look up to back then

You’re so so cruel
But you’re just a fool
And you think your cool
With nothing to loose
You’re easily bruised
It’s the life that you choose
But you’re just a fool
You’re so so so cruel

Shake it baby!

Vicious Circle

Written By: Kay Ghibli

VICIOUS CIRCLE

Everyday more bills to pay
Nothing on my plate, bailiffs at the gate
No time to breath, too stressed to sleep
I’m finding it hard enough to make ends meet

Again, again, again, AGAIN!

No saving grace, no room for mistakes
Drop out the rat race you land flat on your face
Some people say “live for today”
I live for tomorrow wishing my life away

So I’m running away
But I’m running just to save my skin
So I’m running away
But I’m running far away from this
So I’m running away
But I’m running just to save my skin
So I’m running away
But I’m running far away from this

Vicious circle, spinning whirlpool
That’s dragging me deep down inside
Muddy quicksand, snap off the dead branch
In the more you struggle to survive

Work (from nine) to five, you’re a slave to the grind
Inflation is too high, got a job at night
No time to breath, too stressed to sleep
I’m finding it hard enough to make ends meet

So I’m running away
But I’m running just to save my skin
So I’m running away
But I’m running far away from this
So I’m running away
But I’m running just to save my skin
So I’m running away
But I’m running far away from this

Vicious circle, spinning whirlpool
That’s dragging me deep down inside
Muddy quicksand, snap off the dead branch
In the more you struggle to survive

So I’m running away
But I’m running just to save my skin
So I’m running away
But I’m running far away from this
So I’m running away
But I’m running just to save my skin
So I’m running away
But I’m running far away from this

Vicious circle, spinning whirlpool
That’s dragging me deep down inside
Muddy quicksand, snap off the dead branch
In the more you struggle to survive
