BandRockPop

FRESH - UNIQUE - DIFFERENT - WILD - NAUGHTY

Commercial rock with a sharp modern edge to both the melodies and lyrics. Vocally and musically the songs give you an impression of fun and upbeat rock/pop, but the lyrical content has a much deeper and darker edge, singing of life's sweat and heartaches.

Biography

The heart and soul of SHOTGUN BLONDE is in the words and life experiences of front man Nick Ryan. Brought up in the small country town of Bowral, Sydney Australia and studying in Goulbourn also in Sydney Australia, Nick was able to touch, smell and see the very bottom of the barrel of what is a hard and unfair life. SHOTGUN BLONDE's dark and bleak lyrics are masked by the upbeat and danced up feel of synthesizers and catchy rhythms.

SHOTGUN BLONDE started as a 3 piece band back in 2004 with Nick, Steak and Anthony. The guys musical interests and their thirst for originality led them to search for extra members. Well over 20 guitarists came and went until the guys finally found some spirit in Chris Beville. Tragically Chris died in a car accident in 2008 and once again left SHOTGUN BLONDE stranded. They finally got a hold of Ron Prince who is now a solid member of the group.

It's been a long road of ups and downs playing in front of 2 people at a local pub on a Wednesday night to playing in front of over 5000 at musical festivals all over Australia. SHOTGUN BLONDE know about the obstacles and hardships of the music industry and are moving forward everyday never letting anything get in there way from getting the name SHOTGUN BLONDE in the airwaves of all radio stations around the world.

SHOTGUN BLONDE have released one self titled EP with 5 tracks all available via iTunes and all other leading electronic distributors.

Lyrics

Moonlight Madness

Written By: Nick Ryan

Let down your hair and take off your dress
Show me your skin, that's what i liked best
When the moonlight reflected off your skin
It glimmered in the light just like porcelain
You give me moonlight madness, dangerous eyes
Searching for your sense in the heat of the night
It goes oh la la la

I want you oh la la la
Nothing more coz nothing come close
I want you oh la la la
Coz you're the one that i need most

I take a pill coz i can't sleep
When i see you i don't sleep for weeks
I have flashbacks of us driving down on the tar
Pulling over slow in my black charger car
And you do it so rough you do it so mean
Making sex to Bruce Springsteen

I want you oh la la la
Nothing more coz nothing come close
I want you oh la la la
Coz you're the one that i need most
Down on the sand down on the beach
Moonlight madness makes my heart miss a beat

Nothing in this town only sweat and heartache
Nothing in this city only pills and ghost trains
Nothing in this town only sweat and heartache
Nothing in this city only pills and ghost trains

It goes oh la la la

Jukebox Love

Written By: Nick Ryan

Woke up this morning, didn't think i'd feel like this
Like a ghost in an antique photo, i was easily missed
Somethings never change but that night they did
Like an abandoned car on the side of the road i was fueled up and lit

Yes i'm fighting with myself tonight like a Saturday night brawler
And everything decided to go when the jukebox when out of order tonight

Took me to heaven and put me through hell
Said a prayer for me kissed me on my cheek and wished me well
Now the jukebox is skipping like a stone on the river and the river is pulling me down
No light in this tunnel, no gold in this rainbow, no love to be found

Now i'm fighting with myself tonight just like a Saturday night brawler
Why'd you have to up and go when the jukebox when out of order
Yes i'm fighting with myself tonight just like a Saturday night brawler
Why'd you have to up and go when the jukebox when out of order tonight

Doo doop doop doop doop de doo

The jukebox is skipping like a stone on the river the jukebox is skipping like a stone
The jukebox is skipping like a stone on the river the jukebox is skipping like a stone

Now i'm fighting with myself tonight just like a Saturday night brawler
Why'd you have to up and go when the jukebox when out of order
Yes i'm fighting with myself tonight just like a Saturday night brawler

The jukebox is skipping like a stone yeh it's skipping

Paint the Doors Red

Written By: Nick Ryan

She comes out on the hour at twelve o'clock
She gotta black short skirt and a black ripped top
Doesn't like disco only voodoo rock
In the house on the hill where the doors are all locked

I just wanna dance to the beat in here
Turn the smoke machines up and lights down
Lock all the doors and paint them red
Dancing with the girls with the snakes in their hair

Oh do you feel my heart she said oh i feel your heart

My heart beats baby beats how it beats for you
My heart beats baby beats it's on fire for you
My heart beats baby beats i won't lie to you
My heart beats baby beats it's on fire for you

Doo wup doo wup

Now the voodoo sound comes down the stairs
Everyone's lost be we don't car
No one talks just dance stare into my heart and make it beat again

I just wanna dance to the beat in here
Turn the smoke machines up and lights down
Lock all the doors and paint them red
Dancing with the girls with the snakes in their hair

Oh do you feel my heart she said oh i feel your heart

My heart beats baby beats how it beats for you
My heart beats baby beats it's on fire for you
My heart beats baby beats i won't lie to you
My heart beats baby beats it's on fire for you

Paint the doors red, make the doors red
Paint the floor red, make the floor red
Paint my face red, make my face red
Paint my heart red, paint my heart red

My heart beats baby beats how it beats for you
My heart beats baby beats it's on fire for you
My heart beats baby beats i won't lie to you
My heart beats baby beats it's on fire for you

Hold Her Tight

Written By: Nick Ryan

Her name was Alice his name was Damien
And they couldn't understand why he held her so tight
The doctor always said it never seemed quite right
They only ever cam out in the middle of the night
Just like vampires

They were hooked like fish and pale like snow
Weak like kittens but no one could know
When they cam out in the middle of the night
Dressed in black with their blood shot eyes

Hungry for more than their bodies could take
Until the sun came up and took them away

I don't wanna wait for another day
I don't wanna wait for another day
I don't need no sun i don't need to play
I don't wanna wait for another day

Living like a vampire a blood sucking vampire

Alice and Damien lived in the park
They were in love but it burnt their hearts
Coz their love was a disease and they knew it wasn't long
Till the sun came up and burnt their skin so strong

Hungry for more than their bodies could take
Until the sun came up and took them away

I don't wanna wait for another day
I don't wanna wait for another day
I don't need no sun i don't need to play
I don't wanna wait for another day

A blood sucking vampire

Bring me undone give me more sun
Bring me undone give me more blood

I don't wanna wait for another day
I don't wanna wait for another day
I don't need no sun i don't need to play
I don't wanna wait for another day

A blood sucking vampire

Blondie

Written By: Nick Ryan

The bar is dead and so is she
She's had enough of this dirty place
Some of them smile say remember me?
She's already forgotten their face
No she don't feel the love in here anymore

I think she's too far gone now
I think she's been left behind
If i could go back in time how i'd make you all mine
And she's bringing me down, pulling me down
Another night and I'm here alone
Nothing is right, nothing is new
I've had enough here but I'm stuck with you

Blondie walk out that door
Another lonely night and you know there's more
She don't feel the love in here anymore

Throwing your love around like a puppy dog
And how much longer before you say no more
She's throwing her love around like a puppy dog
And how much longer before you say no more

She don't feel the love in here anymore
She don't hear my voice in here anymore
Come on Blondie walk out that door
Another lonely night and you know there's more
She don't feel the love in here anymore
