lyrics

"Californian Boys"

Force-feed you retro,
The future's in the past,
A photocopy of a photocopy,
Quick fix, not meant to last.
Pack my bags and head for the sun,
Got my daddy's records under my arm.

California - lift me high
California - telling all the kids what they're supposed to buy.

Why?

Follow my head 'cause my heart's cold,
If you want to play the game,
And if we shift enough units,
Get our thirty-eight minutes of fame.
The more that we make, the more that we lose,
Do you know the way to Santa Cruz?

California - suck me dry
California - swallow what I've got, look me straight in the eye
And we want to be the brightest stars in the sky
California - telling all the kids what they're supposed to buy

Don't want to fool some of the people all of the time.
Don't want to fool all of the people some of the time
We want to fool all of the people all of the time....

California - wave bye bye
California - turn your backs, leave us high and dry
And we want to be the brightest stars in the sky
California - telling all the kids what they're supposed to buy

It's all lies, open your eyes....

Podracer Dundalk, Ireland

Alan Anderson - Vocals/Guitar
Damien Carroll - Bass/Vocals
Keith MulHolland - Drums

Angry, noisy & irreverent as possible, Irish three-piece Podracer take post-punk sounds of the 80's, subpop sounds of the 90's & different elements of rock, punk & metal to create short, sharp shocks to the system, cutting out the ego-enhancing mtv-friendliness that contemporary "rock" bands are weighed down with.
