lyrics

sick of this cocooned emotive world
writing second-rate songs about third-rate girls
suddenly it felt like just a waste of time
when the ladies see me they don’t smile
‘cos they all think I’m juvenile
darling, grab a ticket and get the fuck in line

to survive it’s sometimes necessary to fight
but I just wanna break some things, I just wanna break some things tonight

goodbye, London Town
I laughed out loud
as I tore my city down
oh London town
I’m sure you thought
you’d always be around

put my pride upon the shelf
is that before or after you go fuck yourself?
from now on things round here are gonna change
the tourists they all stopped and stared
as the Queen’s guts splattered on Tony Blair
Big Ben toppled down into the Thames

about

3 1/2 Inch Floppy Birmingham, UK

I met all of the band over a couple of weeks in October 1999. We met at different times, due to different band T-shirts. Sebby, Dave and I practised in my kitchen and it’s a miracle that they didn’t walk out then. But they stayed on, and Pete, Rachel and Jo were thrown in and the rest, as they say, is… unfortunate.
