Biography

bio

theUMPH first became in January of 2006, in Moncton, NB, Canada. This 3-piece post punk-rock project comprises of Jonah Hache (Guitar, Vox), Eric Babineau (Bass, Vox) and Geoff (Drums, Vox). The band was an evolution of Jonah's solo project "Jonahh", an indie rock group that had been playing from 2001-2005. Some songs from the old setlist were taken and revamped with new ideas from Babineau and Moss. Several were disgarded or put on the shelf. The members were looking to be a part of a project with equal input, without worrying about having similar influences.

Lyrics

Leaving

Written By: Jonah Hache

A tooth is broken
My lip is bleeding
But the fight's not over yet
Kick and screaming
It seems I'm leaving
But the fight keepings going blah..

My shoes aren't matching
My head is scratching
I still can not find my place
It seems I'm lacking
Of undistracting
But the noise keeps going blah..

It seems I'm leaving

Wide Eyed

Written By: Jonah Hache

Heart Donor, too loner, to show her the owner
Microphon'er and say something stupidly sober
Wise-crack addicts spring from the bushes, mush me to mushes
Then it's safe to say it's over, all over the over

Wide eyed I see the groove
It drew from attitude
My haste will clear a space
My face will age

I cast the remorser to course her on maddam sir and ettiqu'er
To say something dashing then loath her
My ass bets 10 bucks we'll all loose it, snoose and abuse it
Til it's safe to say it's over, all over the over

Wide eyed I see the groove
It drew from attitude
My haste will clear a space
My face will age

I want results, I want it all
No more matter, no more more

Wide eyed I see the groove
It drew from attitude
My haste will clear a space
My face will age

Training Wheels for Jonah

Written By: Jonah Hache

What another day so hollow
Another lie, I cant get out from me
Would you wait for this day?
You know that I'm busy

So leave me to my lazy day
You know I will not have my way

It's best you don't find out that I am just a greasy slob
It's best you don't find out that I'm bellow you
I've got a bigger mess than I am always leading on
I can't compare because I am much weaker
I make all the bad moves, soon you will see too

I could not have planned for better
You made my day - hope you'll make tomorrow
Cross my fingers, hope you're still around to take care of my complaints

So leave me to my lazy day
You know I will not have my way

It's best you don't find out that I am just a greasy slob
It's best you don't find out that I'm bellow you
I've got a bigger mess than I am always leading on
I can't compare because I am much weaker
I make all the bad moves, soon you will see too
