Biography

Influenced by most of the great British and American rock bands of the last two decades, the early British punk scene, and every band we ever shared a stage with, jaded playboy have been together for 2 years. The band has gigged extensively across southern and central Scotland and received airplay on XFM Scotland and a prime time live acoustic session and interview on Talk 107 during the Edinburgh Festival, and also played the open air main stage of Edinburgh's famed Fringe Sunday in 2007. They played the JAR Music Group's music industry showcase at the end of last year and were selected as one of 75 bands nationally to receive an in depth review of the band's credentials. Recently the band were also selected to appear on Californian record company '272 Records' 'Punk Kills Vol VII' album. The band plan to record their third EP in early summer. They have also been confirmed for a slot at Glasgow's Southside Festival this May.

Lyrics

Shards

Written By: Jaded Playboy

She just died her hair
The colour of my heart
And I shall declare
I'll give this my all
Time to set my stall out
All over her bed

Christmas lights are falling
For you my shards are calling

As you rise and fall I stay the same
Nuisance at my door that'll be my clone
So our ship has sailed and I'm feeling kef
Kitchen sink has failed to break this down

So I'll admit defeat before I've begun
Fraction of disbelief in what you have sworn
Black beauty stands and weeps
She thought I was gone
Into the cobbled streets
To find my way home

Christmas lights are falling
For you my shards are calling

Break, make up
For your sake do you take her back?
Only if you can see this through till the end of your time
Wake up, shake up
For her sake do you take her back?
Only if I can stand by her for the rest of my life
Only if I can see this through till the end of my life

Christmas lights are falling
For you my shards are calling

Into the depths of despair
To wait for the truth
Witness for her to bear
Fourth scar to the heart
Time to pack my stall up
Leave pieces behind

.......
