Think of England

BandRockPop

This musically diverse group sounds like "what might happen if Bono and Fiona Apple had a love child who listened to The Go-Go's."

Biography

The five members of this pop/rock group met in the quiet town of Claremont, California, where three of them were college students and the drummer was the college's Dean (and the only one with any tattoos). Two months after graduation, the band won the first annual Pantene Pro-Voice competition, where they beat out over 1,200 other female artists and got to perform to a crowd of thousands in New York's Central Park.

The band was recently chosen by Jewel to participate in her Soul City Café program for emerging artists. They opened several shows for Jewel last summer, including two theater shows in Texas. In November of 2001, Think of England completed a 21-date national tour as the opening act for the artist Poe (of "Angry Johnny" fame). The club tour included venues such as the House of Blues in New Orleans and the Roxy in Los Angeles and helped ToE develop a loyal and passionate national fanbase. Holding it all together is lead singer and chief songwriter Libbie Schrader, whose arresting voice and unique compositional style provide the foundation of the band's sound. Ethereal one minute and exciting the next, Think of England is anything but predictable.

Lyrics

Blood Red Moon

Written By: Libbie Schrader/Think of England

blood red moon (This one's for the girls....)

When it's one, two, three, four, five days late she starts to worry
On her knees she sees the bedroom walls gettin' blurry

Well, there's a blood red moon comin' either way
But one would pass and one would stay
She left the door open, now she's hiding away

Now she's five, six, seven, eight hours in bed but not sleeping
All her hopes and fears like a nightmare appear on the ceiling

Oh no she can't get through another night
Tossing, turning, calling the light
'Cause there's no way to know
Until it decides to show

When you're one, two, three, four, five days late you've got to worry
Worry and wait
'Cause there's nothing in heaven or hell to move it along in a hurry
It's blurring your fate

Yeah, there's a blood red moon comin' either way
But one would pass and one would stay
And if it arrives she can sleep through the night
But if it's the end of the world, is it a boy or a girl?

Oh, there's a blood red moon comin' either way
But one would pass and one would stay
And if it arrives you can sleep through the night
But if it's the end of the world, is it a boy or a girl?

Ah....
