about

This is the second release by Trip-Sit Records that marks the exposure of new Norwich 3 piece, Gladboy. It's a small collection of junkedelic live demos sneakily recorded over a period of 24 hours in Plug Studios using all of our own [Adam's] recording equipment; for the extortionate price of nothing, you can listen to it every single day of your life.

Track Name: Bright Spark Boogie
it takes a lot to believe, a lot to believe in you
it takes a lot to achieve, a lot to achieve truth
well now I've been staring at the words on this page for my whole life
cos I've been watching too much TV and it's giving me square eyes

and I don't even know what I'm told
and I don't believe anyone at all
oh I'm post-truth and post-worth
eternity is up
the fires are burnt
and I don't even know what I'm told

when we were 13 we thought we could rob a bank
waving our gun in the air like it's the only friend that we've ever had
it takes a lot to believe, a lot to believe this is true
but when the world is wrong I believe everything you do

and I dream of ****** **** with nancy sinatra
bodies trembling in the shadow of her father
no perception of time, not feeling right
but with nancy at my side everything is fine

and I dream of the sand in her hair
it's smooth and I stop cos her daddy's there
he says
what are you doing out here

*inaudible shouts and grunts*
Track Name: Little World (Tyler's Tune)
soak up the crimson and clover that surrounds you
from the posters on the wall that have found you
the cold water teases your legs
like ailing jokes that never come to an end

broken records and stale smoke
but i'm in my little world and i ain't alone
torchlight cut through the dark
it ain't easy to be sorry when you're heart is hard

and i wish that i could smell the flowers
that overhang the brown of the brook
and i wish that i could be your sunshine superman
because i do it all by the book

i might drop out... work on my fitness
all my friends here tonight will be thrilled to witness
my decline, my fall from grace
but i'm still in my little world

i wish that i could count the hours
of the moments that pre-empt the end
with a wall of feedback and a smile on my face
this song has come to an end
Track Name: Killing Fields
if you look in your mind's eye then what would you see
your reflection in the payphone
or people in the street
watch them laugh, watch them cry as breezeblocks fly
watch the colours converge from grey to the billboard's eye

cos I'm an animal
or am I just a man

and if you look in your mind's eye
what would you see
a guilty conscience or another racist dream
we will dance, drink the wine
until the clouds fall from the sky
grab a TV and hurl it straight at that billboard's eye
