THE STEEPLES

THE STEEPLES

BandRockPop

Four young indie kids are creating a real underground buzz around the UK right now with their contemporary writing style, catchy hooks and fantastic stage presence. They are The Steeples and they're currently hitting the touring hard in a bid to spread the word of The Steeple! Don't miss them!

Biography

With the playful naivety of early Libertines and the tuneful prowess of a young Noel Gallagher, The Steeples are preparing for the next stage of this great Brit-pop Indie renaissance. Since The Kooks, Fratelli's and View broke through a few years ago there has been a lull in what was fast growing into a noughties Brit-pop revolution.
Now the Steeples have arrived and so it continues.

There is a monstrous feel-good factor to The Steeples, kind of like when the world cup's on, and with the same annual patriotic glee as a world cup, The Steeples music unites people.

As the boys open their live set the crowd bob, beer in hand and with an amused grin, like receiving your latest ebay purchase, and this grin is infectious. As they plough through tenderness and aggression, delicate harmonies and stunning rock outs, the tension builds and some myspace fans seem well aware of its direction. By the end of the set a stage invasion is imminent and average joe has 100 new friends to rock out with.

With the kind of football chant style hooks that the Anfield faithful would quickly team up with, its not difficult to see why The Steeples are currently zipping round the country at a rate of knots, performing blistering sets, applying that romance that only your first tour can bring and that youthful, Brit-pop exuberance.

Its as though someone bottled the summer of Supergrass' Alright and chose these boys brews to spike!

Britneys' Tears

Written By: Culshaw/Rankin

Britney's Tears

I didn't say to call me when i've already done, the deeds that i was dreading now we're over the sun, leave me here with britney's tears all on me get out of my way, and when i wake up tomorrow hopefully the guilt will just fade away.

Now the bricks have all fallen from the roof of your house, tamper with desicions when there's never a doubt, kiss me quick and take your cab no nonsense et outta my way, and when i wake up tomorrow hopefully the drugs will just fade away

Consciously or even in my dreams

Ba da Ba da......

The girl well she amazes with the thing that she does just standing there delivering what she thinks that she could, leave me here with britney's tears all on me get outta my way, and when i wake up tomorrow hopefully the guilt will just fade away

Consciously or even in my dreams

Ba da Ba da......

Betty Kitten

You see Betty I can't figure you out, you're like a roof cock going north and then south, you make your mind up when the wind recedes or never at all

I've got your lipstick marks all over my chest (but not only)
I've got your kitten marks all over my neck (you control me)
Well you prowl around the garden just parading in your favourite dress

Smells like cinnamon and tastes so sweet
Your Daddy won't be mad if you come out with me
Just one chance, you never it might feel right

And when all is said and done, you just keep me hanging
Betty, don't you get me, won't you let me oh are you ready Betty

You see my heart is pouding out of my chest, I'm like a cartoon thats in love I confess, I'm wearing heart shaped eyes and when you leave the room I'm a mess.

Smells like cinnamon and tastes so sweet
Your Daddy won't be mad if you come out with me
Just one chance, you never it might feel right

And when all is said and done, you just keep me hanging
Betty, don't you get me, won't you let me oh are you ready Betty

Ba da do da da.............

Loosy Lucy

Loosy Lucy

I was caught with my pants down about 20 to 3 they were wrapped around my ankles i could feel the breeze, it was swishing and a swirling just above my knees but i looked down it was not Lucy staring back at me and i said get up get up now button your blouse, please turn around girl before i do get aroused i pull my pants up just as fast as i could but you had better believe that my face was a blush

Oh now I want my loosy Lucy back, i want my loosy Lucy back, Lucy Lucy Lucy Lucy
Oh now I want my loosy Lucy back, i want my loosy Lucy back, Lucy Lucy Lucy Lucy

well it was getting to around about quarter to 4 i was still striving to get over that scene from before when a girl i had not seen around approached from afar asking to trade some petty cash with her for tricks in the dark, so i said pull up pull up now pull up your skirt, i can't wait to see what's under those french lace knickers, i pulled my pants around my ankles again just rockin back and forward thinking of my Lucy

Oh now I want my loosy Lucy back, i want my loosy Lucy back, Lucy Lucy Lucy Lucy
Oh now I want my loosy Lucy back, i want my loosy Lucy back, Lucy Lucy Lucy Lucy

Lucy you leave a mess
Recharge my batteries start afresh

Lucy Lucy Lucy Lucy

Oh now I want my loosy Lucy back, i want my loosy Lucy back, Lucy Lucy Lucy Lucy
Oh now I want my loosy Lucy back, i want my loosy Lucy back, Lucy Lucy Lucy Lucy
