Bucky Absolutely massive album complete with wheely popping groove, barn burning swagger, and ass kicking power. Riding With The Kings is a non-stop thrill excursion full of ballsy riffs and burly chops. Or is is burly riffs and ballsy chops? Works both ways. Dig it. Favorite track: Box Of Broken Heads.

Long Live The Peel Back in the day some time ago this place was where you went. There was never a better way to get your money spent Every night the place fired up and it all started to kick. And on a Friday night, rock chicks in sight, I got all up in it. Oh yeah! The good times we had The place was mad It was unreal Long Live The Peel Head-On to the Thunderpussy, from G. Moore to the OG’s. Even I had my turn rockin’ the stage with some ol’ friends. Then round the back to the titty bar once we had finished the show. And for a small price, here come the nice, you’d get to see it all. Goddamn!! The good times we had The place was mad It was unreal Long Live The Peel This ol’ town now gentrify to the point of no character left. They tore her down just rock n’ dust and left her there for dead. They build a high-rise with another high-price, which no one can afford But she’s never forgotten by those downtrodden and will forever be adored. You better believe! The good times we had The place was mad It was unreal Long Live The Peel Long Live The Peel (repeat)

The Effect of Transylvania Real late, one night Two booze hounds looking for a fistfight Too high, too fried But tonight’s the night they’re gonna pick a fight They spot two young lads, easy targets Or so they thought but they were martial artists Now you hear the cries, no more tough guys As they run away from a row they started But blame the full moon in the skies ‘Cause it’s nights like these when people die The Effect of Transylvania A lush, called Jen Polished all the wine then went around and hit men A laugh, a crack Intimidating blokes cause they never hit back And with her boyfriend to back her up She’d shout and scream and never shut the fuck up But now she’s sparko’d on the street ‘Cause she started on a man who wouldn’t take her shit But blame the full moon in the skies ‘Cause it’s nights like these when people die The Effect of Transylvania (Bridge) The lunar brings the lunatics A man, named Leech Out the nut house, day release Let out, too soon Little did they know what would happen on a full moon On the run at night he would prowl Last thing his victim heard was his howl He thought that the full moon had changed him But crazy old Leech was mistaken So blame the full moon in the sky ‘Cause it’s these nights when lose your minds.

Ding Ding The Monkey Verse; In the 1900’s the monkey was born A corner of Ireland from his family torn He was raised with a criminal mind He liked to fight every goddamn night One day a boxer took him under his wing Taught him to fight and the discipline But that lil hairy monkey was too wild He killed a man in a bare knuckle bout That crazy lil monkey That crazy lil monkey He fled on a boat to the USA To Hollywood where he caught fame Working with the greats like ol’ Hal Roach He starred in a few ol’ classic shorts But that fame didn’t last, he ran for his life When a big film producer caught him fucking his wife Now the life of a bum the monkey felt grim He lived down the alley by a boxing gym. Pre Chorus Ring that bell, monkey Ring that bell, monkey Ring that bell, monkey they sang. Chorus; Ding Ding the Monkey Ding Ding the Monkey cause the monkey goes Ding The boxing gym owner gave him a choice Said would you like a job and the monkey rejoiced He got a lil suit, sat ringside And hit that bell for every fight From this job word got round And that lil hairy monkey was pulling in crowds He loved to make that boxing bell ring And all the punters called him lil Ding Ding. Bridge; One day the Monkey died Such a loss that everyone cried Left a wife and a son, he died back in ‘81 Goodbye monkey goodbye Monkey goodbye

Delusions of ol’ Sheene – The Grudge You lift the clutch up fast And twist the throttle down Delusions of ol’ Sheene And the ground flesh to the bone 3 months in traction Obliterated pride But you’re one crazy son of a bitch ‘Cause you’ll jump back on that ride, yes you will (Pre chorus) Speeding while tripping you’re slipping to surreal Never thinking just sinking away from the real Tunnel vision caused collision but you didn’t die But it didn’t take long for your life to flash by (Chorus) Speed trip – Real late tonight Speed freak – You’ll see the light Slow down – But it’s too late As you’re damned to fail from your own fate Street lights strobe past so fast The V-twin breathes and roars Low below the slipstream The thrill comes to a close Up the road ahead The darkness waits for you Step it up a another gear The wheels cut the road in two, yes they do (Pre chorus) Speeding while tripping you’re slipping to surreal Never thinking just sinking away from the real Tunnel vision caused collision but you didn’t die And it didn’t take long for your life to flash by Riding high Too young to die But you don’t care If you die tonight (Solo) You tripped too hard And now you’re scarred Forever damned It took all of this for you to understand (Chorus) Speed trip – Adrenaline Speed freak – Will follow you Slow down – Your heart and soul Is damned to doom from your control

The Cover Up 03:17
The Cover Up I don’t know what will happen soon But I’ll tell ya one thing, that this is real Just scratch the surface and you’ll start to see This is the real deal take it from me. Fighter jets were scrambled to take ‘em on But out manoeuvred in a flash they gone Over nuclear silos they shut ‘em down Some crashed around the world and taken underground Chorus; It’s all a cover-up Who runs the show? Communication encounter What do they know? Chorus cont; Them credible witnesses They speak the truth Then ridiculed By ignorance on the news Backward engineering From advanced technology Did they leave it for us to learn? Or a plan to overturn?

Viking Queen 06:00
Viking Queen Born and bred in Hvidoure Raven haired young huntress Flew the skies of the northern lights In her longship she took flight Dragon head storms the frozen sands Invading lands To fight all men a scene obscene Viking Queen Big fucking knife strapped to her thigh Another fool is gonna die All she faced met their fate At the hands of Carolingian blade Searching for the one with might To unite All alone she searched for him Viking Queen Fires rage across the sky And the sound of the war cry Burnt black the midnight sun Destroying everyone Stormy night she faced the man Got beaten down by his hand Lightning crashed as he raised the axe To take her life away Beat it down to end her life Close to Death Concealed blade just saved her skin Viking Queen

Mutiny From A Distant Earth – The Grudge The day the sun went nova We stole some hyperships Two thousand years of interstellar travel Experienced for the final trip Earth scorched to death Jupiter’s boiling Saturn’s rings collapse The sun devoured its children We stole all mankind’s treasures Golden mask of a young pharaoh DNA of plants and animals Onboard archives of sorrow Earthscapes, artifacts Pyramids meltdown Moving scenes of our last moments Mutineers go spacebound (Chorus) No place to call home We are all alone Humans have been cursed Mutiny from a distant earth No place to call home We are all alone Humans have been cursed Mutiny from a distant earth Ablation shield protects us From erosion of space dust Five hundred years of voyage time To a planet we’ve colonised One tenth the speed of light Powered by plasma drive Dreams of our dead earth As we begin for our rebirth (Chorus) Another planet to dominate A human race full of hate.

BONG LOAD CHARLEY Loaded up on planet Bongload she decided to hit the road Find a planet Fuckin’ have it. Time travelling through the galaxy, in 95 found the place to be Where she found a land They called Amsterdam. Chorus: High n’ Horny – Bongload The Dam busting Checked herself in the Hotel Crown, Sparked up a joint sitting on the throne Took a big hit Started to lose it Wrote her name on the toilet wall, before she forgot what her name was called Sat there smiling Really flying Chrous Kicked up a sweat – Bongload The one you don’t forget – Bongload Charley In the place to be – Bongload Stoned and carefree Bridge Charley walked alone She found her second home High all through the night She got so fucked up, it was outta sight Chorus The incredible – Bongload Wrote it on the wall – Bongload Charley In the place to be – Bongload Stoned and carefree Twenty years when she returned, to a place that’s really burned She sat there crying, Felt like dying Not the same as it was before, the things she loved now nevermore Deep in her heart Forever a part.

Rise Of The Death Rates – The Grudge Alone and recluse you just sit there and stare At the walls of your mind, too dark for the share It’s bricked up inside, a mindset so evil To be unleashed raises the fear to new levels again Hunts at night Prey in sight Consumes his victims ‘Cause the thrill to kill takes him to new heights No one gets out alive Praying to survive Before he kills and consumes The rise of the death rates Slice them up In the tub Abusive childhood ‘Cause poor ol’ Len never felt no love No one gets out alive Praying to survive Before he kills and consumes The rise of the death rates It wasn’t known until it’s too late to mention The evil in his eyes so dark and so demon You preyed on the weak, on the homeless, the sickness Abusing the booze to refuse the abuse of your life Knife carves the flesh Flesh is consumed The rest is disposed To decompose He sits in the dark Companion a corpse To talks of the high And watching them die Through their windows of eyes And the thrill that will rise He can’t stop addiction Some say an affliction It’s too much to stop He loves it too much Murder weapon in hand He takes his last stand

Soul Dragger 06:03
Soul Dragger – The Grudge You’re on the edge Bout of depression That’s about to end Caught life’s rejection Waiting in the shadows Waiting for the next hit That girls she’s coming for the one who can’t take it no more Soul dragger that’s what they call her Soul dragger she waits in the shadows Soul dragger that’s what they call her Soul dragger the one who takes your soul down to hell Decapitation On the tracks When one’s dismembered She’ll come along and take your hand Smashed to pieces Red eyes are waiting During commotion She comes calling because Waiting in the shadows Waiting for the next hit Taking you away You just could not take it no more Soul dragger that’s what they call her Soul dragger she waits in the shadows Soul dragger that’s what they call her Soul dragger the one who takes your soul down to hell Decapitation On the tracks When one’s dismembered She’ll come along and take your hand They’ll be no trace of that girl Woah yeah, like storm clouds just washed her away Soul dragger that’s what they call her Soul dragger she waits in the shadows Soul dragger that’s what they call her Soul dragger the one who takes your soul down to hell

Runnin’ On Fumes – The Grudge It used to be so easy, runnin’ on fumes But now the shit kinda caught me, runnin’ on fumes Don’t matter if I’m feeling the good times Or if I feel the blues Just sleep when you’re dead Keep singing to the same old tune (Chorus) Our world is spinning faster every year No one knows the truth Or even why we’re here Come on The brain keeps on ticking, when I’m runnin’ on fumes But the body don’t no more, runnin’ on fumes Don’t matter what the doctor tries to tell me Or if the heart breaks down Just do it your own way Till the day they stick you in the ground (Chorus) Enjoy your life And everything you hold dear One day your time is up The only thing that is clear Yeah Come on It used to be so easy, runnin’ on fumes But now the shit kinda caught me, yeah runnin’ on fumes Don’t matter if I’m feeling the good times Or if I feel the blues Just sleep when you’re dead Keep singing to the same old tune (Chorus) Enjoy your life And everything you hold dear One day your time is up The only thing that is clear Yeah
