  • Limited Edition Single

    We wanted to do something a bit special for the cover, being that it's our first single.

    The thing with first singles is, hardly anyone buys them, but the people who did can say "I was there at the beginning, I helped this band become what they are now" (whatever that might be).

    Ages ago we had this idea to arrange the covers into a big square and paint across them, so that each single is a little piece of something bigger. The beauty of it is, that's essentially what you get when you buy an album/single, you buy a piece of the band. You're watering the plant, as it were.

    You can see the video of the cover being painted here:

Track Name: Charlie Don't Surf
Charlie just ain't workin',
don't feel like workin' today,
he just likes white crystal,
he don't know his mothers face.

I like the women and the easy money,
I like them pale in the face and weak in the knees,
I like the junkies and the people who handle honey,
honey is heroine but not if you got it from me.

Yeaa, charlie doesn't surf no...
Yeaa, charlie doesn't surf no...

On a nice cheap holiday,
spark up... and fly away,
quick trip in the afternoon,
see your pretty face, in a tablespoon.

I like the women and the easy money,
I like them pale in the face and weak in the knees,
I like the junkies and the people who handle honey,
honey is heroine but not if you got it from me.

Yeaa, charlie doesnt surf no...
Yeaa, charlie doesnt surf no...
Track Name: Feel Electric
He said I like what I do, woah,
these girls are my fools, woah,
but don't cut me off, woah,
don't cut off, 'cos sugar I'll cut you.

I feel electric,
don't you feel electric too,
when the music makes us,
the music makes us move.

I see all the signs, woah,
but I can read your mind, woah

And I feel electric,
don't you feel electric too,
when the music makes us,
the music makes us move.

Mr. Magic Fingers has a magic touch,
dirty magic,
he likes to see his baby blush,
and lovers love him,
'cos you can never love too much,
Mr. Magic Fingers has a magic touch.

I feel electric,
don't you feel electric too,
when the music makes us,
the music makes us move.
Track Name: 5 Pints of Wine
I'm gonna go and drink my fill,
gonna show these people what it means to be ill,
then I'll get it everywhere,
gonna get it on my knees and in my hair.

Gonna glue the light switches down,
'cos when you're drunk in the dark,
everything spins around,
I'll chuck some flour on you,
we like to antique the girls who look too new.

Ooh la la, this ain't fun no more,
Ooh la la, one more for the bathroom floor,
Ooh la la, when the sun means sorrow...
Spit up, and wait for tommorrow.

Don't quit if they tell you too,
The only things that are good are bad for you,
oh you know that i remember when,
my friend Sam Collier got raped in Dixie Chicken.
Track Name: Stanley
Who are you, who are you kidding
Who are you, who are you kidding
You'll always be alone
You'll always be alone

We make you feel alive
We make you feel alive
You'll always be alone
You'll always be alone

You'll always be alone
Shy man go home

Who are you, who are you kidding
Who are you, who are you kidding
Shy man go home
Shy man go home...
