Biography

Our recent Western Canada tour to promote our sophomore disc 'Never would have guessed we were all blessed' emphasized the importance of toilet plungers in surviving life on the road. Believe it! The disc was released in July 2006 to gushing reviews across Canada and strong college and CBC airplay. The disc also contains an animated video for the song 'Airstrike' which received some attention from MUCHMUSIC. In September 2006 Vancouver's Georgia Straight selected us for their Best in Van edition.

Conrad formed in 2001 initially as a three piece and released a s/t disc in 2002. We secured distribution through Scratch Records, Not Lame and Kool Kat Musik. We have completed three successful Western Canada tours.

Lyrics

Airstrike

Written By: Larry Lechner

i'm happy to find the crumbs that you left behind
i'm happy to find the crumbs that you left behind

calling in an airstrike

we think we're all so bloody clever
now don't we
i think we're all so bloody stupid
now don't you
now don't you
now don't shoot

calling it a fair deal
calling it a fair deal
calling it a fair deal

[breakdown part]

now don't you
now don't you
now don't shoot

calling in an airstrike
calling in an airstrike
calling in an airstrike
calling in an airstrike

Ending 1st

Gonna take a team of surgeons
Working through the night
Bending their minds right to it
Working under the most …
Working under the most …
adverse conditions

I want it all to go at the same time
No need for eyes when the mind goes slack
Got this way by ignoring all the warnings
Plugged in to strange circuits
Pulled in odd directions
Took my sweet time when it came to you
Never doubted myself or came unglued

Working under the most …
Working under the most …
adverse conditions

Let's shoot the ending first
Let's make it all sunburst
Let's shoot the ending first
Let's fake it all …

Got this way by ignoring all the warnings
Plugged in to strange circuits
Pulled in odd directions
Took my sweet time when it came to you
Never doubted myself or came unglued

Let's shoot the ending first
Let's make it all sunburst
Let's shoot the ending first
Let's fake it all …
