lyrics

playin’ the numbers game
aint it such a shame
we try so hard to compete
we’re cannon fodder
for the elite
push u all up to the bar
and tell us who our friends are
then drive them all insane
with the night bus or
the milk train
The streets are full of ex-champs
and tramps with tranny amps
like it or not
constructions wot we got
get a few quid for all this stress
get on your knees and
pray 4 the next
round on the merry-go-round
with the ups always bein
bullied by the downs

about

The Scratch St Albans, UK

A rock band from St.Albans & Firm believers in DIY ethic they released their 1st single as 7” vinyl only in 2002 & was stocked by Rough Trade in London.

An amalgum of T.Rex, Velvet Undergroud & other good things plus a big dollop of themselves. Eccentric english rock‘n’roll, with weird catchy riffs. Dark & other times funny, they don’t do po-faced indie thank god! [Marco Pirroni, The Wolfmen]
