BandRockAlternative

A frantabulous contraption of miscellaneous satisfaction. A whop babba looba a whop bam boom. We're a Rock band from Sydney's East Coast. If you're reading this it means you're considering hiring us. Don't be too hard on yourself if you do, we all make mistakes.

Biography

When most people hear of Maroubra they immediately think of the sneak revenge attacks which promptly followed the Cronulla riots...but it is also the birthplace and home of Dead Kitten Parade, a three piece rock band who are a musical reflection of the cruisy lifestyle on the lower east coast of Sydney.

A band born in high school out of friends who loved the same bands: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana & Weezer to name a few, the boys spent years having fun with other peoples music whilst unintentionally creating their own sound in the process.

Its Not too heavy, its not too light, its just Dead Kitten Parade.

Lyrics

Targeted

Written By: Dead Kitten Parade

Targeted, yeah i was targeted.

On my way home,
handed me three samples of hope.
Then on the phone,
could they record how much i earn?
Or so i'm told,
For their own confidential report,
and now i've sold,
my private life to the private world,

Because i was targeted,
Yeah i was targeted.

On my way home,
my life was planned out by the board.
They made me whole,
showed me how credit cards could solve,
my need for more.
I'm one more unit for them to own,
and i'll be old,
before i pay off the debt to this fucking loan.

Because i was targeted,
yeah i was targeted.

Showgirl dancing at ten,
freaked out to read the letter i sent to someone i met,
i met by mistake.

Showgirl was it something i said?
Reach out and try to pretend no one knows but i,
i sense thats your game.

Showgirl,
no girl,
told her all she wants is forget that i came
and gain my restraint.

Showgirl,
no girl,
told her all she wants is forget that i came
and gain my restraint.

Smile that makes you generate,
the sunset heat i melt and break.
I want you to know i'm crazy about you.
Night time breaks,
your sleepy face,
please takes me to a better place.
I want you to know i'm crazy about you.

Speech Impediment

Written By: Dead Kitten Parade

I've got something to say to you,
but i just can't seem to get the words out of my mouth.
My tongue is wrestling with my head.
Maybe if i shut up i'll make,
i'll make the world a better place.
I've got something to say to you.
Maybe if i shut up i'll make,
i'll make the world a better place.

This goddamned speech impediment,
is stopping me from saying what i want to say to you.
This goddamned speech impediment,
is stopping me from getting what i want to get out of life.

I've got something to say to you,
but the say is done i guess its going to have to wait,
wait again till tomorrow.
I'm done i've wasted everything not said.
Maybe its not that important anyway.
I've got something to say to you.
Maybe if i shut up i'll make,
i'll make the world a better place.

This goddamned speech impediment,
is stopping me from saying what i want to say to you.
This goddamned speech impediment,
is stopping me from getting what i want to get out of life.

covers are typically Molly's Lips by Nirvana or a John Frusciante cover. We tend to have instrumental breaks between songs, Johnny is a nut on the bass, he bitch slaps the strings like a wifebeater in a trailer park.
