about

Debut en solitario de Nick Markham, el que fuera lider de los desaparecidos Crosstown Traffic, banda emblemàtica mallorquina que dejò como legado 3 discos de rock-prog imprescindibles. 6 años después Nick da un paso al frente y nos muestra en todo su esplendor todo el abanico de virtudes musicales que encierra su privilegiado talento como compositor, instrumentista, arreglista y cantante. Desde piezas orquestales que podrian encajar tanto en el ambiente de Henry Mancini como en el de Danny Elfman, a canciones pop con aires sixties, rock setentas, folk mallorquìn hard metal, swing, y hasta una cardiacada digna del mismìsimo Tim Smith, reto que no es moco de pavo para el resto de los mortales. Todo grabado por èl mismo en su habitación.

Track Name: Herbert Acropolis Sphinkter De Miles
NOBODY LIKES ME
AND THAT SURE IS STRANGE
'CAUSE IM REALLY LIKEABLE
TELL YOU MY NAME
ITS HERBERT ACROPOLIS SPHINKTER DE MILES
AND IM REALLY PROUD
'BOUT THE SIZE OF MY PILES
I TELL ALL THE LADIES
'BOUT THE PAIN IN MY ASS
AND I FART AND I FART
AND IT MAKES THEM ALL LAUGH
BUT STILL THEY WONT LOVE ME
GUESS GIRLS ARE ALL THE SAME
IS IT BECAUSE I SMELL?
IS IT JUST BECAUSE OF MY BRAIN?
Track Name: SFL
LAYNE, HE'S GONE AWAY
PRAY, AINT IT A SHAME?
LATE, HAPPENED AGAIN
ALL ALONE HIS BODY LAY
BLACK WATER WELL
YOUR GRAVE
AHH, IN THE DARK YOU PLAYED
POISONING YOUR BRAIN
DECAY
SOILED PANTS, YOU'D WAIT
SMELL OF SHIT
AINT YOUR LIFE GREAT?
PAY, YOUR DEALER'S SAFE
DEAL DONE HE WALKS AWAY
BLACK WATER WELL
YOUR GRAVE
AHH, ITS JUST ANOTHER DATE
ONE MORE AT THE GATES
HERE'S YOUR BALL & CHAIN
NEVER BE THE SAME
YET I HEAR YOU COMPLAIN
SCREAM ABOUT YOUR PAIN
AND IT RAINED
AND IT RAINED
AND IT RAINED
OTHERS PLAYING YOUR GAME
PEOPLE LEARN THE HARD WAY
DONT FEAR, YOU'RE NOT TO BLAME
YOU AINT FLYING THIS PLANE
BLACK WATER WELL
YOUR GRAVE
AHH, YOU'RE JUST ANOTHER DATE
ONE MORE AT THE GATES
Track Name: Dirty Love Song
BABY, YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU
AND WHEN I KISS YOU
I LOSE MY HEAD
LADY, WHEN YOU'RE ON TOP
YOU KNOW THAT YOU ROCK ME
RIGHT OUT OF BED
AND THIS FEELING
THAT I'M FEELING
WHAT A FEELING
AM I DREAMING?
THE SIGHT OF YOU BOUNCING, HEAVING
OH, WHAT A SCREW!
LADY, LET ME INSIDE YOU
PLEASE LET ME RIDE YOU
INTO THE SUNSET
BABY, GET ON TOUR KNEES
AND BLOW YOUR SWEET BREEZE
OH, GIVE ME YOUR HEAD
WHEN I'M FEELING YOU
I'M FEELING OH SO HAPPY
WHEN YOU GRAB ME
WE GOTTA GET SOMETHING GOING
'FORE ITS TO LATE
HEIDI BOMBARDEA KUWAIT!
Track Name: In The Dark
ON A BOAT THAT SAILS THROUGH SPACE
THROUGH DARK HOLES IN THE SKY
PEOPLE OF SOME DISTANT RACE
GROW OLD BUT NEVER DIE
OVERFOWING SULPHUR SEAS
THAT SWEPT THEIR HOMES AWAY
HAVE BECOME THEIR PLAYGROUNDS
IN THE DARK THEIR CHILDREN PLAY
HIDING, HIDING
BRING YOUR FRIEND DOWN TO THE SHOW
HEAR WHAT WE'VE GOT TO SAY
TELL HER NOT TO WORRY
'CAUSE NO ONE CAN SEE TOUR FACE
LOSE YOURSELVES AMONGST THE CROWD
HIDE FROM THE LIGHT OF DAY
TAKE A SPACE, MAKE IT YOUR OWN
LOST WITHOUT A TRACE
HIDING, HIDING
LATE AT NIGHT
ON ANOTHER PLANE
COLOURED LIGHTS
HAD NEVER FELT THE SAME
SO UNREAL
AND WHAT I NEEDED TOO
DID YOU HEAR
WHAT I JUST SAID TO YOU?
COME THE STORM
MY BODY BROUGHT ME DOWN
REALTY
AND THEY ALL WATCHED ME FROWN
COLD THE RAIN
AND COLDER IS THE THOUGHT
NEED TO CHANGE
A LIFE I NEVER SOUGHT
LIVING IS SOMETHING
THAT I NOW FEAR
JUST BEING AROUND
FEELING HOW I FEEL
FROM THE DARK WATER WELL
I AM SINGING
STARS GAVE BIRTH
TO HER BODY
SHE CAME DOWN TO EARTH
WIND CRIED OUT
THROUGH THE RAINFALL
MADE MY WAY TO HER
SO SHE SMILED
AND MADE ME FEEL ALL RIGHT
FOR A WHILE
SUCH A STARRY NIGHT
YEARS WENT BY
WAS OVERCOME BY CHANGE
THINGS TURNED OUT
SO DIFFERENTLY IS STRANGE
HOW I FOUGHT
FOR WHAT I THOUGHT WAS MINE
SOON YOU'LL SEE
MY IMAGE BURNING BRIGHT
LIVING WAS SOMETHING
THAT I THE FEARED
JUST BEING AROUND
FEELING THE END NEAR
FROM THE DARK WATER WELL
I WAS SINGING
