Biography

Ice-cool trip-hop grooves, hauntingly beautiful lullabies, super-funky dance and strutting hard rock, all created in a studio hundreds of feet under London by an eccentric grim-reaper lookalike inventor and a beautiful homeless orphan girl with the voice of an angel. You will love Azrock and Pogo!

Their enchanting and imaginatively illustrated story is posted to their website a chapter at a time. Their songs are born from and build on the story and they have the first of many music videos in pre-production, which will tie all the music, story, characters and imagery together with stunning animation.

If that wasn't enough they also have a unique approach to the business side of the industry. Fans can invest in their productions (currently fundraising is well under way for their debut album) and in return get a stake in all Azrock & Pogo's activities (album and single sales digital & physical, vinyl sales, publishing, synchronisation, licensing, merchandising, film rights, etc). In this way they hope to have life long love affairs with their fans and live and die by their approval.

The music speaks for itself and has the notable quality of having universal appeal (all age-groups, all genres) while still being original and inspiring.

Lyrics

I'll Wait Here

Written By: Azrock and Pogo

Do you stand in the wind hearing all the world.
If you listen hard, you’ll hear a voice for you.

Are you killing the time till the day you meet,
And its only hope, that keeps you hanging on.

Do you know in the night if its dark enough.
You won’t close your eyes, you’ll see them next to you.

It doesn’t matter

I’ll wait here and maybe one day.
You’ll find me and I’ll find you.
(x2)

Loose who you found when you searched around,
If you had to look, they can’t be what you want.

See her leave in the night with another man
on her mind cos that’s the decent thing to do.

Do you cry in the films when the lovers die.
Does it make it worse when one survives it all.

It doesn’t matter ...

So stand in the wind hearing all the world.
If you listen hard, you’ll hear a voice for you.

Are you hiding it well but you’re scared to death
that the curtain falls before your story ends.
Time to circle your prey cos it’s nearly dead
And it’s frightened eyes, can see the darker you.

It doesn’t matter ...

Wha'Cha Gonna Do?

Written By: Azrock and Pogo

I’ve been in love. And I’ve been in pain.
You’ve been a bad, bad boy and now it’s time for you to pay.

A pretty girl. Against the wall.
I caught you pants down on the floor and now I’ve seen it all.

Think it through.
What’cha gonna do.
Think it through.
What’cha gonna do.
Think it through.
What’cha gonna do.
Think it through.
Cos there’s nothin’ left here for you.

I’m on a high. A higher plain.
I’ve thrown your clothes out on the road and now it’s gonna rain.

I don’t wanna talk. Or get it on.
It’s time you knew now honey I was faking all along.

Think it through.
What’cha gonna do.
...etc

You’re gonna cry. When you come home.
I played your vinyl with a knife to add a little tone.

But I’m still mad. I’ve been betrayed.
There ain’t no chocolates sweet enough to buy me off today.

But bring them anyway!

Think it through.
What’cha gonna do.
...etc.

Forbidden Love

Written By: Azrock and Pogo

Oh forbidden love.
Forbidden love.
Can’t get enough. No.

Glancing eyes and alibis,
A brush against the cheek - I can barely breath,
Promise me that you
are dying too.

Oh forbidden love.
Forbidden love.
Can’t get enough. No.

Look for the storm clouds in the sky.
A secret place for you and I.
Above the rules we found.
Just don’t look down.

Oh forbidden love...

Hand in hand on golden sand,
The way we’ve never been,
But I can dream. Dream. Dream. Dream.

Oh forbidden love...
