Description
How we sound live, possibly a different gang outside the studio. Raw & ready...

A song about those news items that happen elsewhere and seem to be never ending. A diet of gun patrols, ambushes, incendiary devices, murder & mayhem etc etc etc etc.........not good for anyone. Serious stuff to an upbeat tune. Our way of dealing with the onslaught of media information.


Thanks for listening!

Denis - Vox & words
Paul - Bass
Roddy - Guitar
Gordon - Drums

Lyrics
It could just be me
But I’m losing my patience
I can’t find the point
To a hip-hop generation

I look to the East
They're making graves for dictators
While here in the West we’ve become spectators

Oh it’s quiet tonight
And all the lights go down
Well I know that something ain’t right
In a quiet bordertown


So quiet, you're wonderin' why...?


I’m glued to TV
They're down in the square
I thank God it’s not me
Thank God I’m not there
I take a panic attack and I ain't pretendin'
No mister, I ain't buyin' a little bit of ethnic cleansing


Oh it’s quiet tonight
And all the lights go down
Well I know something ain’t right
In a quiet bordertown

It’s so quiet tonight
I know something ain’t right
I watch the lights go down
There’s never a sound

Oh it’s quiet tonight
And all the lights go down
Well I know something ain’t right
A quiet bordertown

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!


Oh it’s so quiet tonight
And all the lights

And I know something ain’t right
A quiet bordertown

Solid
Great solid rocker. You guys are well rehearsed and ready to jam. Lots of high-end on this mix, but it doesn't detract from the obvious talent displayed.

great stuff, guys

Thanks Harold

We did rock out that night, great gig in Glasgow. Crowd were on fire and with us all the way. Makes a difference.

No control by us over this one take recording, but we hope the energy still comes over.

Solid Rock!
Very cool piece of rock here guys. Do you mind if I think of Springsteen when hearing this? Nice to hear a live piece as well, not that common around here ;-) Take care.

We'll take that comparison...

...any day!!! Thank you so much Henrik, glad to hear we remind you of 'The Boss'! And you are correct - there's not much live music, so this is a change from studio based compositions.

Appreciate you stopping by, thanks for your support.

Performance
Strong energy and that guitar does not let up, the message is clear and delivered powerfully. all the changeups melt into eachother nicely.

This is one finely tuned (into eachother) band!

Thanks Tom!

This is a slightly faster version than the studio one, so no time to do over again, the changes just HAD to work on the night. Nice to hear you think they did.

We're sending a rep to see you soon...! Glad you like it, thanks for commenting.

Take care,

Thanks for tuning in!

Appreciate you taking time to listen and comment. Not many live uploads on MacJams, but we thought it would be fun to let you hear us untethered, outside of the studio.

Spectators

Trying to distinguish between us seeing it on TV as a spectator and those unfortunate enough to be caught up in it all. News reports always seem to home in on a border incident.

And you are correct - it's all over the world, sadly.

But that aside - thanks for tuning in and commenting.

Thanks for your continued support

Yes - rock n roll changing the world. Whatever happened to that concept? S'funny how it's not as prevalent, yet world events continue to give us reasons to comment by way of song.

Always be 15 !
