Death Star 4

Death Star 4

BandRock

Edinburgh rockers playing loud, brash & 4real. More Clash than thrash, pounding rhythm section, swirling guitar riffs & growling vocals that take you to the dark side. Original songs, power chords & hooks you won't escape; life, love, war & rain, ghost towns, computer games & Mary Queen of Scots.

Biography

Fallen from graces and places like Goodbye Mr McKenzie and Blues'n'Trouble, Death Star 4 play the sort of driving rock you need to cruise down the freeway... or up the A1 to Wallyford. (EdinburghGuide.com)
"Raw power with a Scottish Heart..."
"Raw power and dexterity..."
"...Great band. Aye... (Rock Goblin)
"...Dead Kennedys meet The Ramones... (Rock Fan)

Lyrics

MARY Q

Written By: E. Drysdale / R. Pettigrew

HER FROSTED BREATHE SIGHS IN THE WIND
A GLASS LIKE POND FOREVER CALM
THE ICE DEW DROPS LIKE PEARLS
ACROSS HER NECK

C’EST MORT – C’EST MORT –
MY QUEEN, MY LOVE
C’EST MORT – MY QUEEN –
MY LOVE ABOVE

LOOKING BACK ON THE BADLANDS –
HOLDING OUT TO THE SAD HAND
THE MARBLE STANCE OF AN ANGEL –
WHO THE HELL WOULD SAVE HER

WHO THE HELL WOULD CALL HER QUEEN
IF I’D BEEN THERE, I’D BE HER KING
THE FRAGILE END OF MORNING
ROCKS HER BOAT

BACK TO BACK

Written By: E. Drysdale

I LIE HERE WAITING – INSTIGATING
LUBRICATING PEARLS OF HATE
MY MIND’S A WHITE WASH
AND A TURN OFF
THERE’S NO COOL OFF – I’M A GHOST

BACK TO BACK – BABY IT’S OVER
THANKS FOR THAT – BABY I’M GONE
BACK TO BACK – BABY I’M SOBER
THANKS FOR THAT – BABY I’M GONE

MY EVENING HATING – SERENADING
SPANISH DANCERS – LOST ON LUST
ENTER VENUS – MILES BETWEEN US
DISTANT PLANETS – MY MOON DUST

I’M EXERCISING – SO TANTALISING
PEEL THE FLESH FROM THE BONE
AND THROUGH THE CAR WASH
THE CAR’S A WRITE OFF
THERE’S A MIRROR WITH NO FACE

THE SHAKE

Written By: E. Drysdale

The Shake

Science fiction wars begin this way
Alien stars control the day
It’s the satellite that hunts me down
Heat seeking strike – oh colour bomb

Baby the shake

The metal priest in the metal mask
Injects his veins with liquid glass
Inverts his eyes to see his brain
And keeps a crow in his mind’s cage

Baby the shake

The rolling lights on his leatherneck
The LED display on his DJ deck
His phallus car on the night time strip
Ejector seats with a spoiler flip

Baby the shake

Real worlds aren’t made of this
Factory blues and mod concepts
Designer wars from baby’s genes
The cutter’s crop of our life’s cream

Baby the shake
