BandPop

Outsider art within the framework of pop sensibilities. Placing the wide variety of styles into one genre is not easy and the influences of the past clearly drive the move to the future.

Biography

Having slugged through tonnes of waste and time draining endeavours, eljape is a return to the idea of royalty free music that is free of the need to create wealth through creativity.
Being free to create and distribute art without being trapped in the confines of the economics of life, has allowed experimentation and fun to return to the art of songwriting and performing.
Maybe not all tunes are to everyones liking , but they offer hope for all artists who aim at creating art for art sake.

Lyrics

Sydney 1932

Written By: Len Phillips

Closing time soon
On a lazy afternoon
No work today
And thats fine

Its street lethal
Living on a razor detail
Standing on the corner
"Your place or mine?"

Chorus
We'd slide across the dancefloor
Drink whiskey until five
Find a room with a back door
And maybe make it out alive

Smoking room with a
Hot jungle tune
The singers gone
But thats fine

Tilly's at her door
She baiting Katies brand new whore
This towns loss
Way down the line

Chorus

Bridge
Leaving Cornwell wasnt hard to do
A ship, a case and a coin or two
Back in Sydney with no point of view
and meet a man called Kangaroo

Bridge the gap where the land should meet
Here and there look the same to me
The summer bakes with a spanish heat
While others rise to a massing feat

Devine empires rise and fall
With no time for English law
The Big Fella says he's seen it all
Back in '32

Closign time soon
On a lazy afternoon
No work today
And that's fine

Smoking room with a
Hot jungle tune
This towns loss
Way down the line

Chorus

Tuscan Rain

Written By: Len Phillips

Float like an angel
But don't paint me a sky
Push the wind under my feet and
watch the road flow by

Look like a feather
And fall like a star
When no one hears you speak
You find out who you are

Via viento
3 tolls shy
on the edge of that lake we
waved the past goodbye

Washed clean in a tuscan rain
Clean in a tuscan rain
Washed clean in a tuscan rain

Teardrop roof tops
Pitching songs to life
Balancing here and now
On the edge of a knife

Far away places
Trapped deep in the old
Century trenches lines with
sweet reddening souls

Washed clean in a tuscan rain
Clean in a tuscan rain
Washed clean in a tuscan rain

Grande reingraziozi il mio amore
E voi devo il monde
Nessun piu de vous
Lo vederebbe come fate
Per sempre nei vostri occhi
Il sole lucidera sempre
For me

Washed clean in a tuscan rain
Clean in a tuscan rain
Washed clean in a tuscan rain

Grande reingraziozi il mio amore
E voi devo il monde
Nessun piu de vous
Lo vederebbe come fate
Per sempre nei vostri occhi
Il sole lucidera sempre
For me
