'Bringing Back the Blues'

People time to dance
We got moon and stars
Though I can’t hear bad penny shaking her curves in my penny jar
I keep grinding

Quench my lust
See my city rust
London town my love I’ll paint your face up with desert dust
Your soul’s been hiding
We’ve still been here grinding

I’m hearing “what the hell are you doing boys, the time for work is through”
I say “our time has just begun it’s why we’re bringing back the blues”

Never had time for the indie scene
£50 haircut, skinny jeans
Band geeks try’na tell you what is cool
Who are they to say that the blues are through?
Keep on wishing
Can’t see what they’re missing
Tommy’s time to cut them down


Come, come take a look around
Condors burning up this town
Band geeks telling me what’s cool?
Our sound will blow away your crew
We’re Burning Condors baby

Imagine Nick Cave sipping whiskey with John Spencer in a Hoxton dive bar.” ... more
