  • Immediate download of 2-track album in the high-quality format of your choice (MP3, FLAC, and more), plus unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app.

    London four piece Burning Condors' 2nd single, the double A-side ‘Knockout’ and ‘Riot in the Streets’ is released on 13th May 2013 through Snakehand Records The tracks will be available for download from Amazon, iTunes and other major download sites.
    ‘Riot in the Streets’ was written in a rehearsal room in Tottenham Hale in 2010, right at the heart of where the infamous London riots ignited in the summer of 2011. The track is a live favourite and a prophetic commentary capturing the social unrest and violence that was bubbling in London's underbelly and shortly to surface. It has received airplay in the US.
    ‘Knockout’ is a dark blues infused track which explores the theme of infidelity. The song and its accompanying photo montage video, place the audience in the position of a person who learns that their partner is involved in an illicit affair, directly from their partner's lover. The video is stylistically influenced by the twisted film noir of David Lynch, the femme fatale characters of cinema’s golden age, and the fine art fashion of Guy Bourdin. It stars burlesque artist Constance Peach and Burning Condors’ guitarist Matthew Edun. Emma Vo is the video's photographer and editor.
    Fresh on the Net described Burning Condors debut single ‘Honey Trap’ as being “...dirty in a good way...” whilst God is in the TV hailed “...a howling haunted victim of love no more”. Joyzine was equally impressed, describing Burning Condors sound as using “...a modern art punk filter to come up with something fresh and new. Imagine Nick Cave sipping whiskey with John Spencer in a Hoxton dive bar.”
    ‘Knockout’ / ‘Riot in the Streets’ will be launched with a live performance at The Lock Tavern (Camden) on 25th April 2013. Burning Condors debut album ‘Round Our Way’ will be released in September 2013.

Track Name: Knockout
Knockout

I got your girlfriend lying in my bed
Aint she a knockout
About as good as it gets
That girl’s a knockout
Ooohhh she’s a wild one
Her hip leather whips like a shot from a gun
As my head hits the floor for the count for the knockout

Your girl’s tracing down my chest
But hands on lock-down
She’s nicotine I need a fix
I just can’t cut her out
Got the keys to the heavens
Satanico tease escape trick ‘fore I’m done
My head hit’s the floor for the count for the knockout

Her eyes lit up when I walked in the room
Sensed her bedevilment know you did too
How does it feel man it must turn you green
Knowing your pretty little city cowgirl is riding round town on me

Little rockabilly queen doll of the Dalston scene
Rocking tattoos wearing lucky 13
Drinking bourbon dressed in red
Wrapped pins tight in fishnets
Oh then she b-b-b-b-bites

I got your girlfriend lying in my bed
Oh what a woman
Left a tattoo up on my neck
As she draws my blood up
Man you can’t tame a wild one
You can’t please your girl sorry son when we’re done
Her head hits the floor for the count for the knockout
Track Name: Riot in the Streets
Riot in the Streets

Riot in the streets
I feel the concrete rumble ‘neath my feet
I feel the concrete rumble ‘neath my feet
Let’s shake the maker, wake him from his sleep
Call jobless John get out of bed
Show them that we ain’t half dead and riot in the streets

Say this old world can’t change
The money men will always catch the break
The money men will always catch the break
Another joker broker cheating me again
Well let’s go smash his champagne down
Kick it over London Town and riot in the streets

I’m calling out
Shake the game up, shake the game up
There ain’t a doubt
It’s time to riot in the streets

Come here now girl
Look at this world
You may not know there’s more to us than chasing girls
Well I’ve been down blind eyed road to many times to know it’s wrong, can’t you see it’s wrong
When there’s social genocide, can’t turn my eyes to blind if it’s come down to this let’s Riot in the streets
There’s Saturday night slags, dreaming that they’re WAGs if it’s come down to this let’s riot in the streets
Everybody we can’t run, the chavs, the ya ya yas, the unreality stars it’s time
It’s time to riot in the streets

Riot in the streets
Shake the game up
Shake the game up
Shake the game lets shake the gamemaker shake the game
There’s Saturday night slags, dreaming that they’re WAGs if it’s come down to this let’s riot in the streets
Those karaoke stars are dogging in their cars if it’s come down to this let’s riot in this streets
Let’s riot
