about

In 1879, London society was rocked by the mysterious disappearance of two esteemed members of the aristocracy, Messrs Arthur Pimmsley-Fox and Frederick Pinegar. The young gentlemen, renowned for frequenting certain dubious music halls and places of ill repute, were alleged – by the more salacious and guttersnipe Illustrated Press – to have founded a clandestine coterie of rakes not witnessed since the day of Lord Byron and his Hellfire Club. Malicious gossip abounded; wicked whispers of music and merriment on the Sabbath, of dabbling in the Black Arts, and of blasphemous scientific experiments. Pimmsley-Fox and Pinegar began construction of a most singular contraption – a great machine of bells and whistles and steam-valves and coal-engines – a mysterious vehicle that was said to manipulate the laws of time and space, and to transport the passenger to unknown places and planes. Large crowds would gather outside the gentlemen’s workshop, attracted by strange lights and the sounds of the Devil’s own music that issued forth; until finally from within came a spectacular flash of light and a thunderclap that shook the very street; then only silence. A decision was made to breach the building, where authorities discovered Pimmsley-Fox and Pinegar’s infernal invention, and a pooled heap of the men’s garments, still smoking, but not the gentlemen themselves. Pimmsley-Fox and Pinegar were never seen again – a lasting mystery – and their machine, it is rumoured, was appropriated (and refined) by the War Department.

Track Name: Big City Lips
I need to drink, I need to smoke, I need to do what they tell you don’t
I make the rules, I make the fun, I’m going to egg everybody on
Put a big smile on my big city lips oh
Put a big smile on my big city lips oh

I need to dance I need to strut, I need to show people what I got
I saw the man I gave him hell, I did things but I’ll never tell, I’ll just
Put a big smile on my big city lips oh
Put a big smile on my big city lips oh

I know there’s a better life, for me & you
But for now the city life will do
Track Name: Lost Dog
You left my tail in a spin, I don’t know where to begin
I bark but no one hears my call, it’s dark but you don’t care at all
Do you understand I’m a

Lost dog, running round the park and I really wanna see you again
I’m a lost dog running round the park and I really wanna see you again

I stare at my empty bowl, I hear my stomach growl
I’m such a neglected boy I’ve lost my spark and my joy
Do you understand I’m a

Lost dog running round the park and I really wanna see you again

I didn’t mean to follow you home
I didn’t mean to follow you home, no.

I want to get sweaty wiv you, on the dancefloor
I want to get sweaty wiv you, on the dancefloor
I want to get sweaty wiv you, on the dancefloor
I want to get sweaty wiv you, on the dancefloor

You’ve got to move your feet to the rhythm on the floor
You’ve got to move your feet to the rhythm on the floor
You’ve got to move your feet to the rhythm on the floor
Track Name: I'll Bite You
Ah you tell a fib, and then you cover it up
Why do you always think, that I’m such a mug, such a mug
Go treat me any way you want to

I like you, I like you, but I’ll bite you if you lie to me

Your place my place
Your lips my face
Black boots white lace
Ah you’ve got goof taste, good taste
Go treat me any way you want to

I like you, I like you, but I’ll bite you, if you lie to me..
Track Name: Freaky Weather
Yesterday the sun came out to play
But not the rain has made it go away, filled the sky grey

Is this some freaky weather that we’re having?
Is this some freaky weather that we’re having?

August came and went without a spark
My dog and me had to avoid the park, the rain makes him bark

Is this some freaky weather that we’re having?
Is this some freaky weather that we’re having?

But the rain can’t stop, all the people living their lives
No you can’t stop all the people having a good time

Is this some freaky weather that we’re having?

Track Name: I Am What I Am
Went to the clinic on Thursday
to check my health, to check my health
Doctor on call looked nervy,
it didn’t help, it didn’t help

I might be growing up,
but I’m still the same pup

I am what I am, yes I am what I am

Went to my friends on Friday,
they looked weird, they looked weird
Felt that my identity
had disappeared, had disappeared

I don’t see nothing wrong,
I’m just trying to have more fun

So if you see me coming, oh please don’t run away
I’ve got so much to give just stay

I am what I am, yes I am what I am

Please don’t treat me differently because I’m different
Track Name: Walking The Dog
No one else really gets me, no one else understands
Oh when he lays his head on my belly, or puts his paw in my hand
And when I hear him ruff, it makes me so happy can’t get enough oh I’m

Walking the dog, it helps me clear my head
We’ll go to the park before it’s back to bed

I throw a stick and he’ll catch it and often he’s in mid-air
People so jealous we’re happy, but my canine don’t care
Oh how I love my hound, just watch him running round & round & round

I’m walking the dog it helps me clear my head
We’ll go to the park before it’s back to bed

Dog breath on my face
Dog breath on my face

I’m walking the dog it helps me clear my head
We’ll go to the park before it’s back to bed
