about

Here is a sweet compilation of some of our favourite tunes from the past, something of a sampler for new fans...it includes some great buried tracks from the end of albums and on long disappeared Ep's that we've grown to love. Album #5 is in the can and is being prepared for release in 2016.

Track Name: The Price You Pay
The Price You Pay
(Written by Stewart Cunningham)

Sean Greenway was a friend of mine
Tim Hemmensley walked the same old line
Did I tell you bout Guy Lucas as well
And John Nolan made it back from hell

There’s a price, there’s a price to pay
I wouldn’t have it any other way
If there’s a price I’m ready to Pay
There’s a price I’m ready….to pay

Ash Thomson made it back
with his sense of humour intact
Jay Curley - I never know where he’s at
Let me tell you bout Mick Weber as well
Yeah I got my own little tale to tell….

There’s a price, there’s a price to pay
We wouldn’t have it any other way
if theres a price I’m ready to Pay Yeah
If there’s a price I’m ready……to pay

There’s a price I’m ready to pay
Ok ok ok ok ok ok
I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready to pay
I’m ready….
Track Name: Fade Your Brilliance
Fade Your Brilliance
(Written by Stewart Cunningham)

We started dancing at a party
We had a few drinks to many
Next thing we’re alone in a bedroom
Hands and faces and and what comes next is

The early days are so amazing
You’re so perfect – I do my best
But there is danger close at hand
A few more years it all falls down

I can change my outlook now
I won’t fade your brilliance down
Whoo hoo hoo hooo
I won’t fade your brillian down

My own fear and hesitation
Prevents me from my destination
A long time of prevarication
Face down into the gloomy road
I got some issues to be rid of
With the coming of the autumn cold
I’m gonna shed these old leaves to the ground
They are all so crumpled and old

I won’t fade your brilliance down
Whoo hoo hoo hooo
I won’t fade your brillian down
Whoo hoo hoo hooo
(I promise not to fade your brilliance down)

I can change
I can change
I have changed my colour now
It’s all gold black and brown
All blue and green now
Track Name: Pretty Thing
Pretty Thing
(Written by Stewart Cunningham)

She’s such a pretty thing we’re loving her thing
She’s such a pretty thing we love to hear her sing
They follow her around the boys in that town
She’s such a pretty thing she’s the jewel in the crown

Such a pretty girl whoe oh oh wo
Such a pretty girl she’s diamond of a pearl
Such a pretty girl wo oh wo
Such a pretty girl she’s a ruling my world

She’s such a pretty thing watching her swing
She’s such a pretty thing we love to hear her sing
They follow her around all over that town
She’s such a pretty thing she’s a beautiful sound

She’s ruling my world
She’s ruling your world
She rules the whole world
What’s that you say she’s coming my way
I can tell her anything that I want to say
She’s coming my way

She’s such a pretty thing we’re watching her swing
She’s such a pretty thing we lovin her thing
They follow her around the boys in that town
She’s such a pretty thing she’s wearing my ring
Track Name: No Reflection
No Reflection (aka Stephen Fry’s Nose)
(Written by Stewart Cunningham)


There’s a man in front of me
he’s not the man I want to see
He stares right out at me
not the man I want to be yeah

not the man I want to be
Stares right out at me
And I can’t even look him in the eye
I turn and sigh

I wake up in the morning and I see
That man stares back at me
He’s not the man I want to be
And I cut myself and cry
can’t look him in the eye
I turn and sigh

Not the man I want to be yeah He stares right out at me
I can’t look him in the eye I feel my guts inside

This is not the man I want to be Whooooooooo x 2
When you stare into the mirror
You gotta live with yourself
Not the man you wanna be….and I’ve lost my heart full of soul….

The Man in the mirror is me
Not the man I want to see
The man in the mirror is me

Don’t cry no tears Ain’t gon cry no tears
Ain’t gon cry no tears Don’t cry no tears for me
I made it happen see and I gotta live with me
Don’t cry no tears
Don’t cry no tears for me
I’m not the man that I want to be
That’s the way life turned out to be
Ain’t gonna cry no tears for me
I don’t want nobody to see Deep inside of me
Got the mirror blues, Tracks of our tears….
Track Name: Fourteen
Fourteen
(Written by Stewart Cunningham)

When your 14 years old life doesn’t mean a thing
When your 14 you don’t think what the future will bring
You got your favorite shirt, a bicycle and a backyard swing
When your 14 the girl around the corner doesn’t mean a thing
She’s a beautiful thing

When your 14 – your riding up the hill
You gonna meet your friends after school
You’ve always got some time to kill
You want more than the world will give you
You settle for Saturday Anything can happen on Saturday

When Your 14 years old

Maybe we’ll head down the pinball parlour
See if there’s some free games left on the machines
I heard they got a new game - it’s called space invaders
Heard some kids talking bout it on the bus.
On the way home from school
Sounded pretty cool - sounded really cool

Well your 14 years old Starting fires and sleeping in tents
When you are 14, your clothes don’t fit you, your room is always a mess
When you’re 14 - you try to runaway
you don’t like authority - don’t like authority – still don’t

And now you don’t even like your dad, or the fun that you once had
You still remember all those days when he took you far away
Who’s to say he might happen again might take you down to the sea
Could happen any day, might happen this Saturday
Who’s to say – who’s to say.

When Your 14 years old
Che sera sera sera sera
Track Name: Behind the Wall of Sleep
Behind the Wall of Sleep
(written by Pat DiNizio/Smithereens)

She had hair like Jeannie Shrimpton back in 1965
She had legs that never ended
I was halfway paralyzed.
She was tall and cool and pretty and she dressed as black as coal
If she asked me to I'd murder, I would gladly lose my soul.

Now I lie in bed and think of her
Sometimes I even weep,
Then I dream of her behind the wall of sleep.

Well she held a bass guitar and she was playing in a band
And she stood just like Bill Wyman
Now I am her biggest fan.
Now I know i'm one of many who would like to be your friend
And I've got to find a way to to let you know I'm not like them.

Now I lie in bed and think of her
Sometimes I even weep,
Then I dream of her behind the wall of sleep.

Got your number form a friend of mine who lives in your home town.
Called you up to have a drink,
Your roommate said you weren't around.
Now I know I'm one of many who would like to be your friend
And I've just got to find a way to to let you know I'm not like them.

Now I lie in bed and think of her
Sometimes I even weep,
Then I dream of her behind the wall of sleep.
Behind the wall of sleep.
Behind the wall of sleep.
Behind the wall of sleep.
Track Name: You're So Strange
You’re So Strange
(Written by Stewart Cunningham)

Won’t ya Slow Down
I’m tired of chasing you around
I’m glad I don’t have to now
Yeah I don’t have to now

You’re so strange, in every way
When I met you on that fateful day
Everybody said the same

You better look out boy
She’s gonna make you her toy
She was so strange, but I couldn’t stay away

I kept on chasing her around
She kept on dragging the whole thing out
She was so strange

When we were together, she was always in a rush
I liked the silence and the feel, she always had to push

Then I was down and out, she found me out
Digging a bigger hole, diggin a deeper hole

You’re so Strange in every way
But I’m lucky she like’s it that way

You’re So Strange in Every way
You’re so strange but I like you that way

You’re so strange, yeah I chased you around
I couldn’t stay away
You’re so strange, but I like you that way

Won’t you slow down
Yeah I kept on chasing her around
She kept on dragging the whole thing out

You’re so strange in every way
….yeah I like you that way.

Left Wing Yule
(Written by Stewart Cunningham

I’m wishing for a brighter day
The shock jocks have had their final say
And Mr Murdoch is locked away
I’m Wishing that you might even stay
Tomorrow we can start again so true
I’m wishing you a merry xmas too…

The kids are dancing in the street
Revolution at their feet
I’m wishing you

I’m wishing for a greener day to come
Julian Assange is no longer on the run
The mining boom is all done
I see we shall overcome
Our Xmas fun

The kids are still dancing in the street
Internet access is now free
I can see the future it’s not about the losers
The poets and the freaks ….are off the leash

I’m wishing you a merry xmas too
I wishing you a
- Mid 8…
No need to feel so blue
I’m wishing you a merry xmas too
I’m wishing you

Tomorrow we can start again so true
Track Name: Leadfinger Theme
Leadfinger Theme (Crank it Up)
(Written by stewart Cunningham)

I’m a liberated woman, I got the solution
Gonna make you rise up from the dead
I ain’t no saviour, I won’t bother you
If you do what I say I’ll save hell for you

And I said – yeah I said
crank it up my friend
Crank it up my friend Crank it up my friends

….crank it up…..crank it up

You lost your guitar and you lost your head
you got nothing going on so you said
Take it from me and don’t judge what ya see
We’re gonna wake the ghosts of the dead…

Crank it up……..crank it up my friends
Crank it up……………

Well you heard the sounds of valves and guitars
What else could make you feel this way
I’m playing for you and my suzie Q
Do I have to spell it out again….Crank it up

Crank it up my friends
Track Name: I Went Looking
I Went Looking
(Written by Stewart Cunningham)

I went looking for all that I could find
I went searching, I left my home behind
I went looking for life

I went looking for all that I could find
I found it and I lost it again
I went looking for all that I could try
I’ll keep looking, I’m still searching for life

I went looking but all that I could find
Dead faces in some places no sign of life

I went looking for someone to fight
I won nothing and learnt something of life
I went looking and found my beliefs
A friend for life, I found it in my own mind

I went looking for all that I could find
I’m still searching oh lord, oh I went looking

I started looking for my own way of life
I left home at 17 no easy ride
I went looking looking looking for life
I went looking for all I could find
