Fifteen Minutes

BandAlternativeRock

We are the genuine alternative rock band, completely determined to experiment (where necessary) to further our musical, lyrical and physical approach to artistic creation.

Biography

We are Fifteen Minutes, and have been together for the past five years. The first three years we experimented with different sounds before we finally found a natural way of writing songs. Two more years have passed since then and we have written, recorded and produced over 60 songs in a 12ft by 9ft shed. Our debut single “Another Self Portrait” was released on 26th September 2008. We did a nationwide tour to conicide with the release, and the outcome was quite successful. At the moment we are working on an EP which we hope will be released within the next few months.

Lyrics

A Direct Assault On The Nervous System

Written By: Rob McGlade

When it just gets away from you,
It shoots and cuts inside,
Then someone comes along, smiles and says 'hello',
If it's "in" you, then it's "in" you,
C'mon,
Right away, Right away,
C'mon.

And it still gets away from you,
But you wanna be so cool,
Til someone comes along, smiles and says 'hello',
If it's "in" you, then it's "in" you,
C'mon,
Right away, Right away,
C'mon.

A direct assault.

Another Self Portrait

Written By: Rob McGlade

Another self portrait in a world where plastic bags never die,
But I will and you will,
And I can't see anything else that's in my way...
Like a dog, like a dog, like a dog your crawling 'round on the floor,
And I can't see anything else but me.
(Like a dog baby).

There was a time when you weren't even listening,
I could say your changing your words but my opinions, always stay the same....
And I try, and I try, and I try and try and try and see my face,
And again and again and again and again and again now baby.

Another self portrait,
Another slow push,
A self absorbing pull,
And everybody else just..agrees,
Another sick person and
Another shit band,
The Dublin music scene is....
Why can't you only see my side of the story,
One more time,
I want you.

No,
I get it, I get it, I get it but now I don't want to see you,
Another face without my kiss...
I need it, I need it, I need it now now now, I need it now now now,
Everything's in my face,
Another self portrait
Messed up
Another selfish lie.

Plugged In

Written By: Rob McGlade

Buttons are pushed when you're in a rush,
Then nobody knows when the TV explodes,
Radios stop, My ears pop,
Your hand trembles when your in control, because it's
Electric (electricity)
Electric (electricity)
My TV uses electricity,
But I just don't understand,
The signals back in the telephone line,
Get your buzz while you still got time,
Cos' I know everybody is always gonna be plugged in.

Plug in and never plug out,
Screens seem so sophisticated,
One look and you're hooked,
One more and you're on the floor because it's
Electric (electricity)
Electric (electricity)
My computer uses electricity,
But I STILL don't understand,
The signals back in the telephone line,
Get your buzz while you still got time,
Cos' I know everybody is always gonna be plugged in.

The signals back in the telephone line,
Get your buzz
I'll get mine, I'll get mine.

Everybodys fucking plugged in.

Vacuum Girls

Written By: Rob McGlade

The way you suck me in
I know you don't mean to,
But you always do
Yeah you always do.
The way you sucked him in
I know you didn't mean to,
But always do
Yeah you always do, do, do.

My love's caught in a box
And she wants to see outside,
But there's no window
In my heart for you.
Sleep is something that I dream about
And I can't get her out of my mind,
So how do I know if true loves true?
If true love's true, do do do do do do.

I can't see it but I know it's there,
I just can't see it but I know it's there,
You hooked me in and I know you're strange
You hooked me in,
But you're no Baby Jane.....

I give it all to the vacuum girls
I give it all to the vacuum girls
I give it all to the vacuum girls
I give it all
I give it all to you.

(why can't you see me staring down
it's in my way)

I give it all to the vacuum girls
I give it all to the vacuum girls
I give it all to the vacuum girls
I give it all
I give it all to you.
