Carmel Montgomery I happened across you guys at Cronulla Oz Music week. You guys and State of The Art rocked. I searched everywhere without any luck to get my ears some more of your stuff. Funnily enough I was at a family function when I mentioned my search and a nephew said he knew you guys and gave me your facebook url. Yay! I'm a very happy supporter now - I am giving your CD as a pressy too so spreading the word 'old fashion style'.
Goodluck. Hope to see you around again

about

A cocktail of composers and curators, six to be concise, take you on an adventure through the magnificent melodies of soul-washed, indie rock and roll. Fox Holmes: two brothers on the rhythm section, a Venezuelan boy on trumpet, a hippie and a gorilla on the 6 strings and a soul singer from the 60’s trapped in our lead vocalist’s body take you on an adventure through a Sydney summer with their debut E.P. Hope you enjoy!

Track Name: Autumn Leaves
Autumn Leaves are tumblin'
Your words they’re mumblin’
Tough guy, disguise, the white lies
Unknotting every tie
If it’s torn I’ll stitch it up
But thread it just ain’t enough
To relieve us from this dampened ground
Hand in hand we would walk around
Times are changing,
I’m no longer hanging
For your lovin’baby
For your lovin’baby

Wore my heart on my sleeve boy
Didn’t mean a thing boy
Tough guy, disguise, the white lies
Fell for it every time
But I’m gone it’s over now
The crowds gone, the curtains down
You had your chance you turned your back
Had my plans they've gone to scraps
Times are changing,
I’m no longer hanging
For your lovin’baby
No, no, no, oh

Times are changing,
I’m no longer hanging
For your lovin’baby

Autumn Leaves are tumblin'
Your words they’re mumblin’
Tough guy, disguise, the white lies
Fell for it every time
But I’m gone it’s over now
The crowds gone, the curtains down
You had your chance you turned your back
Had my plans they've gone to scraps
Times are changing,
I’m no longer hanging
For your lovin’baby
No, no, no, oh
Track Name: Dampened Fire
Aqua waters, flow gently
Displeased, rolling in the deep
It’s just so peaceful in the sea
Collected regrets in which she must sleep

A heavy world, a darkened mind
Searching for love where she cannot find
She won’t let you in she don't know how
Searching for love in the darkest hour

Eyes are set upon, what could not be touched
The thrill of the chase leaves her nothing as such

A smile to admire, but she’s a dampened fire
A dampened fire
A smile to admire, but she’s a dampened fire
A dampened fire

ohh, a damp, damp, dampened fire

She can’t see no light, keeping her issues blind
The past won’t stay behind, searching for love in moonlight
Soldiers through an empty field, thoughts kept tight concealed
Won’t let you in, don't know how
Searching for love in the darkest hour

Eyes are set upon, what could not be touched
The thrill of the chase leaves her nothing as such

A smile to admire, but she’s a dampened fire
A dampened fire
A smile to admire, but she’s a dampened fire
A dampened fire

ohh, a damp, damp, dampened fire
Oh she’s a dampened fire

Eyes are set upon, what could not be touched
The thrill of the chase leaves her nothing as such
Track Name: Signs
Money makes the world go around
But white noise is the only the sound
Head low to avoid contact
It’s too damn hard to face the facts
You talk the talk and you walk the walk
But to be honest you can’t stand the thought
Stand in line and take your time
Come on boy, now don’t be shy

I’m no good at reading signs
Or reading between the lines
Show me something to make me stick by
‘Cause I’m no good at reading signs

Walk around consumed by mad
Stuck in the moment completely had
A crescent moon in a diamond sky
A picture still of older times
Takes me back to when you were mine
We hit the wall it was a fast decline
Stand in line and take your time
Come on boy now don't be shy

I’m no good at reading signs
Or reading between the lines
Show me something to make me stick by
‘Cause I’m no good at reading signs

Stand in line and take your time
Come on boy now don't be shy
Stand in line and take your time
Come on boy now don't be shy
Stand in line and take your time
Come on boy now don't be shy
Stand in line and take your time
Come on boy now don't be shy

I’m no good at reading signs
Or reading between the lines
Show me something to make me stick by
‘Cause I’m no good at reading signs

No, no, no
Oh, no, no
I’m no good, no good, no
At reading signs, I’m no good at reading signs
I’m no good at reading signs
I’m no good at reading signs
Track Name: Mr Ladies Boy
The grapevine it doesn't lie
I see the truth in your eyes
Your actions don't define who i am

You whisper bitter sweets
To ensure I am what you keep
But i am not your guilty treat to indulge

Oh Mr ladies boy, I don’t need your love no more
Your toxics come undone, so you enjoy your fun
Oh Mr ladies boy, I don’t need your love no more
Your toxics come undone, so you enjoy your fun

Chasing those who want and need
Your insipid delicacy but,
You are not the man you claim to be
Repulsive
Relish in your power
The pure you devour
You confess you thrive off the sour
Reticent

Oh Mr ladies boy, I don’t need your love no more
Your toxics come undone, so you enjoy your fun
Oh Mr ladies boy, I don’t need your love no more
Your toxics come undone, so you enjoy your fun

All is fair in love and war
But have you been in love before
The seasons keep changing
And you're here chasing pavements x4

Oh Mr ladies boy, I don’t need your love no more
Your toxics come undone, so you enjoy your fun
Oh Mr ladies boy, I don’t need your love no more
Your toxics come undone, so you enjoy your fun
Track Name: Gypsy Dancer
I watch you move from across the room
Your hips shake, makes my heart race to the moon
Fire burns as your footsteps lead the way
You're dangerous, i just can’t keep at bay

You're a gypsy dancer, sweet dandelion
You're a gypsy dancer, but you’ll be gone by morning light
You're a gypsy dancer, sweet dandelion
You're a gypsy dancer, but you’ll be gone by morning light

I feel the groove running through my veins
Infectious, I just can’t keep away
Golden jackal, a lone wolf who follows the free
You're dangerous, no shackles can prison your free no

You're a gypsy dancer, sweet dandelion
You're a gypsy dancer, but you’ll be gone by morning light
You're a gypsy dancer, sweet dandelion
You're a gypsy dancer, but you’ll be gone by morning light

I’ve been running from the riots, they search for you
Close my mouth stay silent, don’t whisper a clue
We join the free, run blindly through the acres of relic souls
Entwined in green our hearts swing softly, like feathers to and fro
like feathers to and fro, like feathers to and fro, like feathers to and fro.

You're a gypsy dancer, sweet dandelion
You're a gypsy dancer, but you’ll be gone by morning light
You're a gypsy dancer, sweet dandelion
You're a gypsy dancer, but you’ll be gone by morning light
