Biography

THE INVADERS are 4 guys from Vancouver, Canada who play loudish, farfisa / guitar driven indie rock and roll.
The Georgia Straight’s Steve Newton Said, “The Invaders hint at world domination of the power-pop genre with these five extremely catchy numbers, smartly produced by Damn the Diva alumnus Jerry Wong. The musical stylings of “Farfisa operator” Dusty Idaho are topnotch, and guitarist-vocalist Jake Jacob’s words of wisdom flow freely between the layers of ringing guitars”
THE INVADERS just completed a 5 song EP at Hush Studios in Burnaby with Vic Levak (Balligomingo/RCA/BMG New York) and Jerry Wong (Damn the Diva, Bif Naked).

THE INVADERS toured Japan in September 2006 with 8 dates in the Greater Tokyo area with a live TV appearance on "George's HI FI Zone"

Lyrics

Cycle

Written By: Jake Jacob

Its all a cycle
It goes round and round
Its all a cycle
It’ll put you in the ground

Chorus:
Meet you halfway if you’re down
It won’t matter if you’re sound
Meet you halfway if you’re down
It won’t matter if you’re sound

Its all a cycle
It goes round and round
Its all a cycle
It’s tricky when you’re bound

Verse Three:
It’s all a cycle
It goes round and round
Its all a cycle
It’ll put you in the ground

4 Door

Written By: Jake Jacob

You will drive a four door if you know what’s good for you (repeat 3 times)
You will drive

Verse One:
Back in the days of my childhood
Things were too good
Not a fug of a lot to worry about
Living by the sea
Puff, it’s a magic drag on your way to the beach
You’ve forgotten your sand shovel

Pre-chorus:
You can tell by the waves
That you’d drown if you’d stayed
Look at the one that got away
You would turn to me and say
Whoa baby…

Chorus:
If you drive a four door that’s pre-1970 then you’ve got it all
If you drive a four door that’s pre-1970 then you’ve got it all
If you drive a four door that’s pre-1970 then you’ve got it all
If you drive a four door that’s pre-1970 you’ve got it all!!!!

Verse Two:
Driving down the highway
Slam it in reverse
Something sounds interesting
Its something quite perverse
Listen for the scattered metal strewn about the road
I don’t know why I do it

(repeat pre-chorus and chorus)

outro:
you will drive a four door if you know what’s good for you (repeat 3 times)
you will drive

Track Job

Written By: Jake Jacob

Verse one:
Track job
Relieve them of their money now
Track job
Don’t you give up til its in the bag
In the bag

Verse two:
(Repeat verse one)

bridge/chorus:
don’t give in til she hands it over
don’t give in til she hands it over

don’t give in til she hands it over
don’t give in til she hands it over
hands it over!
Hands it over
Hands it over
Til the bitch hands it over
