Biography

Pushbike Army are a young and exciting, 3 piece indie/punk band from Leeds, England. The band consists of John Rennie (Vox/Guitar) Andy Booth (Bass Guitar) and Chris Hide (Drums). The lads grew up in different towns of northern England but it was in Leeds they met, and in February 2006 they formed Pushbike Army. They produce honest music from the heart, which has been described by media sources as modish football terrace chants and riot rock'n'roll. They cite influences as The Clash, The Jam, The Specials and Oasis.

Lyrics

Four From Alexandra Grove

Written By: Pushbike Army

VERSE 1

A blue light shadow falls on London
"We never thought this would happen to us!"
The morning trains delayed all of a sudden
"Oh what will I say to the boss?"

VERSE 2

Four British sons all led astray
"We never thought that we would see the day!
Rightly so we want someone to pay,
But over there these things happen everyday!"

BRIDGE 1

When your Mam calls you in for your tea
Or when your kicking up the autumn leaves
You didn't know
You didn't know
The faces of hate
The tears they roll with rage
A tragic time for fame
But it seems we really didn't ever know…

CHORUS

The Four from Alexandra Grove
Ooh oh oh Ooh oh oh Oooh
The Four from Alexandra Grove
Ooh oh oh Ooh oh oh Oooh

BRIDGE 2

When the place you were born has gone
And the people you loved have passed on
Did you ever know?
No you didn't know
The faces of hate
The tears they roll with rage
A tragic time for fame
But it seems we really didn't ever know…

MIDDLE

One day we'll walk down the road
Hand in hand no colour to mark your soul
Do you believe we're damned to lose?
The game of life for our freedom to chose
Our destinies will never be known
Why we're here or why we're alone
So walk with me
Hand in hand
No time to lose
Let's bring some change upon this land!

CHORUS

1…2…3…4…
Ooh oh oh Ooh oh oh Oooh
The Four from Alexandra Grove
Ooh oh oh Ooh oh oh Oooh
The Four from Alexandra Grove
Ooh oh oh Ooh oh oh Oooh
The Four from Alexandra Grove
Ooh oh oh Ooh oh oh Oooh
The Four from Alexandra Grove
