Biography

One does not come across an enigma of an artist that often, as in the case of joe-f. This Scottish good natured firebrand was the seminal creative motor powering his former band incarnation of Lifeform 281.

Now joe-f has shed his previous muse & expanded into an ever deepening arc of musical expression This is not to discount such post punk modern aesthetics as "Shoot Through The Stars" with it's wall of guitar buzz-drone. This nod to the ever present past & its accompanying wail had left joe-f's heart in outer space & outer mind.

Nor can the raucous & penetratingly insightful wail of "Politicians (they're scum!)" fade off into the blustering anthem of airwaves; With it's all too close to home tirade satire of media manipulation ; It's intended victim that of the lemming mentality that perpetuates the fraud & corruption of the unsavory arena of politics. One must see the humor as not to cry. After all, the truth does sting at times.

joe-f exudes a world weariness that would confound others & turns it into a catharsis of sound & vision. The art world & music arena need more bold souls like joe-f who are willing to pierce the veil of the politically correct in the world of music & the world of life. This type of courage to experiment & confound whilst reinventing oneself shows the tenacity of a visionary person of iconoclastic dynamics. Which is what joe-f is to those that can see below the surface appearance & into the deeper motivations of the soul.

Lyrics

The Healer

Written By: joe-f

im the seventh son of the seventh son,i'm the seventh son of the only one, stay with me things get clearer, touch the hand the hand of the healer, stay with me things get realer,touch the hand the hand of the healer now.i'm the green is green that you've ever seen,i'm the blackest black that you've ever seen,stay with me things get realer,touch the hand the hand of the healer now,walking through corridors long and grey corridors as long as any day, see the man with the peircing eyes,see the man with the peircing eyes,Tell me your favourite things and the things you hate, and i'll scroll the on the cemetery gates,stay with me things get clearer, touch the hand the hand of the healer yeah oh yeah oh yeah ........

Waves

Written By: joe-f

waves flowing over my head, waves wishing i was dead,
the ocean is dragging me under,
the sea is dragging down.

waves flowing over my head, waves wishing i was dead,
the ocean is dragging me under,
the sea is dragging down.

waves flowing over my head,
like you they're wishing i was dead,
the ocean is dragging me under,
the sea is dragging down.

15 Steps To The Gallows

Written By: joe-f

its cold for the summer
its cold for the winter
its cold for anytime of the year
listen to me god
listen to me good
i dont want you messin with my head
15 Steps To The Gallows
15 Steps To The Gallows
15 Steps To The Gallows
15 Steps To The Gallows
Cold stone and vinyl
vinyl on wood
wrought iron bellies under
always misunderstood
catch me in the morning
put me to the test
catch me on the lonely walk
catch me at my best
15 Steps To The Gallows
15 Steps To The Gallows
15 Steps To The Gallows
15 Steps To The Gallows
bring me my breakfast
bring me my food
shower me with everything thats good
i can see the blackness
i can see the grey
i can see the ending of my day
15 Steps To The Gallows
15 Steps To The Gallows
15 Steps To The Gallows
15 Steps To The Wooden Gallows

Mark Of John

Written By: joe-f

walking through glasgow on a saturday night,
the streets where wet and the lights where bright,
saw them at the corner fussin for a fight.
but i bet they wished they hadn't on that saturday night,
cos out from his coat a razor was drawn,
and right down his face he put his mark on,
the mark of john

playing cards and the stakes where high,
one wrong move and it catches his eye.
the dealer draws a ten then draws a jack,
but john draws a queen and the colour is black,
and out from his coat a razor was drawn,
and right down his face he put his mark on,
the mark of john
