Gavin Hellyer It's a pretty wild record this one by an Australian group from the west. Good stuff with a lot of aggression but it's own fair share of subtlety as well. Favorite track: Indigovidual.

Scumbag Bloody brilliant! Here we have some absolutely incredible psychedelic grungey rock that gives you everything you could want from such a record! Well, almost everything since, like me, you'll probably be eager to hear more! Gotta keep an eye out for 'em on the local live circuit... Favorite track: Colour Cafe.

Track Name: Colour Cafe
I fell asleep in the hot afternoon
the ocean was a rolling and the clouds turning blue
and so I drifted, drifted, drifted, drifted
under the waves
When I woke up I was a fisherman's friend
where the houses are so colourful the fun never ends
and so I floated, floated, floated, floated
up and away

When you're feeling just how I feel
Will it be worth the thrill
Now I just know how to kill
Now that you know the deal
Now that you know

We're rocking up to the colour cafe
the music keeps us floating while the walls melt in flames
I want to be free here for a leap year
while the world fades to grey
And so I spun and broke through
out of the rainbow glass kaleidoscope and into the moon
oh if my spirit is young, then will that be enough?
'coz if the end never comes, I'll come endlessly unstuck yeah!

When you're feeling just how I feel
Will it be worth the thrill
Now I just know how to kill
Now that you know the deal
Now that you know

You're okay but you're tired of staying home
You feel straight but your mind is not your own
You're no saint but you're holy to the bone
disgraced but you throw another stone
Insane at the thought of the unknown

When theres nothing wrong
then theres something wrong with everything
but you can take me along
now you've god damn taken all my sting.
Track Name: Dr Zulu
There's a blind man in this town
Shaking sugar and spice
Poisoned tongues, bursting lungs
Define humanity precise

Damp it down for us all
Do you work for the cause
Cos we're in a state of war
And we have to endure

Here to lay hands on your town
There's a man with a plan
Apple pie and a lie
Taste sour in Afghanistan

Can you breathe when you see
How this place came to be
Hope we're not going crazy just yet
Track Name: Race Into Space
Great job, you have, gone and done it again
Licking, your wounds, just sit back and pretend
That you have done this for us
That we are not second best

And i know that, we're wrong now
When i see the mistakes, i really wanna replace
The human race now, cos we're so proud
Mass destruction and flaws theres no need to applaud us now

Feed us, your lies, and miss-information
Breeding, hatred, for the sovereign nation
Hope that you're comfortably numb
Stuck in your ignorant bliss

I’m so mad, the fact that
I need them to survive, even though I despise
The whole outlook, that you hold dear
Its no real surprise, that I need to escape

Cos I know that, we're wrong now
When I see the mistakes, I really wanna replace
The human race now, cos we're so proud
Mass destruction and flaws there’s no need to applaud us now
Track Name: Indigovidual
We who need a shock to wake
From our electrical sleep
Eclipsed by the moon
I'm in the hi fidelity

Atmosphere of feeling, being
High above the ground
And I can see us all in your eye
Indigovidual

When we find our way down
Are you happier now?
I am happier now
When we find our way down
Hope you like what you found

See the world as a lake in a fog
Then turn three and a half
Throw us down your lies
So we will do what you ask

Thinking for myself is still
The best thing that I've done
Oh I can see myself in your eye
Indigovidual

When you find your way down
Did you like what you found?
I like what I found
When you found your way down
Did you love what you found?
I love what I found
When you find your way down
Take a good look around
I'm at peace with me now

Nobody's watching and nobody knows
Behind the curtain, behind the show
When social proof pressure just creeps up inside
Not that you feel it you're barely alive
Nobody's watching and nobody knows
Track Name: Psychedelic Egyptian Solitude
Don't ever ask my age
You can tell by my creases
I've been folded and handled
Ripped and torn, bent at the edges

But for every fold in me
There's another layer to discover
And for every part of me
There's a piece to be recovered

But I am a real man
And this is not a wasteland

I don't know why, but I just feel so slow
And try as I might, but I'm standing so still
I kick and I scream but I feel so broke!
I don't want to be watching the world spin so fast

Now hand of mercy, collect me up
Bind my bones and sew my skin
Hang my body on the wall
Cos that's what I'm for

So place my heart on the table
And roll up your sleeves
If I've got no problems with you
You should have none with me

But you're a has-been man
And you live in a wasteland

I don't know why, but I just feel so slow
And try as I might, but I'm standing so still
I kick and I scream but I feel so broke!
I don't want to be watching the world spin so fast

You're no god, you're no truth
You're no answer, you're not you
You're no god, you're no truth

You're no god, you're no truth
You're no answer, you're not you
You're no god, you're no truth
Track Name: Death Kwan Doh
Just a shitty day, another shitty day
Now I'm so glad its over,
Gotta pick myself back up
Where's the excitement, that I’m craving?
I feel like misbehaving
Let's start this shit right now, oh!

Stir crazy, from the waiting
I don't hear you fucking complaining
Head spins from the possibilities
Think it over; does it matter?
Hand shakes, the chitter chatter,
All of my friends are here

Keep out of my way cos I'm a wildfire
Deep down to the core of my existence
Swing round down here, I'll give you anything
Get down and stomp around the doghouse

Sink low through the floor and burn the carpet
Breathe in and find a purer feeling
Homegrown on the bare bones of our brothers
Get down and stomp - this is a callout!

Get down and stomp around the doghouse!
