Biography

Met in London early '05.
Three gigs in Tokyo in August, then monthly in London - Borderline/Underworld/Metro/Purple Turtle

„Staring into the black pool, waiting for the ripples to settle’- Nothing!

Conceived in shadow, realized by light, S.T.T.G.B. moves to reveal the beauty inherent in the shade cast by looming emotional oblivion and the chasm that is knowledge.

„Mystic Fujie Yoshimoto, Pierre „Atm0usphere Gelat, „Animal Jack Daniele Fontana and Patrick „Nothing Monroe, have all converged on London from around the globe to create something truly new.

„Mystic Fujie: Japanese female bass gtr/ singer song writer likes shopping and moving in and out of the shadow. Her bass is quite simply Mean and completely at odds with her beauty and demeanour.

Pierre „Atmousphere Gelat: Former member of „Nought'' (supported the Fall and took part in Radio 4‚s the Peel Sessions) and Jade (supporting Keziah Jones) is a French guitarist oozing colour, texture and Passion.

„Animal Jack: Irrational in the way that makes only too much sense, From Italy, Jack doesn`t just play the drums with an unrelenting sense of intricate rhythms; he has that rare ability to articulate melody amidst the seaming chaos. From NYC,

„Nothing" sings from the throne of an opulently furnished castle forever falling into the mouth of a bottomless chasm.

Lyrics

Cancer

Written By: Nothing

There's a cancer growing in the back yard
And it's feeding on everything it gets it's hands on

My mother told me before she's died
With a golden tear in her eye

Son, it's gonna hurt
If you don't get to work
and find out why

There's a cancer growing in the front yard
And it's shitin on everything it get's its hands on

My mother told me before she died
With a Concrete tear in her eye

Son, it's gonna hurt
If you don't get to work
and find out why

Why we hate
and why we steal
Why we can't tell if this is real

There is a cancer growing inside

There is a cancer growing in the ally ways
Behind the floorboards, ceilings, walls hallways

It shouldn't come as no surprise
If you keep that shit in your eye

Son, its gonna kill
If you can muster the will
To find out why

Why we hate
and why we feel
Like we can't tell if this is all real

There is a cancer growing inside

Fear is the cancer
fear is the cancer
fear is the cancer

Destroy the cancer

As I Am

Written By: Nothing

There In the corner
A Monolith has run a ground
Splinter'd and Shard
Wanting silence to claim him now
Even though they know him
All just look away
And so he stands there all alone
Waiting paitiently

no one knows Im here
Cuz no one seems to care
For they would never dare
To see me as I am
See me as I am
See me as I am

In her soil
There has been planted and acient doubt
unquestioned and unchecked
it wriths and wriths about
wriggling senslessly
and climbing up the wall
crying in her sleep
what could he possibly want and to what amount

He won't know I'm here
and he won't really care
because he would never dare
To see me as I am
Need me as I am
Bleed with me as I am

No one knows I'm here
Cuz no one really cares
And they could never bare
To see me as I am
See me as I am
See me as I am

So I'll just wriggle in
Wriggle in
Wriggle in, Wriggle in

How could you know I'm here
When I don't really care and
When I can hardly bare
To feel the way I have
being what I am
Not worth a damn

Chasm

Written By: Nothing

Fear is the Darkness of a room
With the lights turned
On

I can still see you
I can see you
And I wish that they never made you run
Made you run away
Or did they take you from your home
And leave you out there all alone
In the cold
With nothing on
As I saw them bring you to your end
And I miss you
Wish I could show you
Show you what I just
Show you what is
love.

So...

When you fall
Through the cracks
I will dive
Down down
And when you crawl
Into the shadows
I will bide
By your side
By your side
Child of the Chasm.

I can feel you
Amidst all that angry snow
I wish that I could
Turn back time
and drag them all below
You know
When you changed
You started something in me
When you changed
You changed something in me

And...

When you fall
Through the cracks
I will dive
Down, Down
And when you crawl
Into the shadow
I will Bide
By your side
By your side
You changed me



When you fall
Through the cracks
I will dive
Down, Down
And when you crawl
Into the shadow
I will Bide
By your side
By your side
For I am of the Chasm
