about

Andy's first studio CD. Predominantly acoustic based contemporary blues with groove. Defies convention by adding cello on select tracks and it really works.

Track Name: All Fused Up
Baby, I can’t think straight,
Can’t think of anything else, but “you” all day

Oh, I never, never, never, never, gonna be the same,
Now I’m all fused up

Baby, just open this door,
I want my life back now, I’m sure

Oh, I never, never, never, never, gonna be the same,
Now I’m all fused up

Baby, please, please
We’re good together babe, can’t you see

Oh, I never, never, never, never, gonna be the same,
Now I’m all fused up

Baby, just one more chance,
Won’t let you down no more, made a stance

Oh, I never, never, never, never, gonna be the same,
Now I’m all fused up
Oh, I never, never, never, never, gonna be the same,
Now I’m all fused up
Track Name: Hangmans Noose
Got a business, feels like a hang-mans noose
Got a business, feels like a hang-mans noose
Feel that rope is tightening, so I cut it loose

I got the good oil, it’s time to shoot through
I got the good oil, it’s time to shoot through
Started strumming yeah, playing some blues

I got to walk away, from the prison cell
I got to walk away, from the prison cell
Break those shackles, ring that bell

Now I’m a new man, can breathe again
Now I’m a new man, can breathe again
Sent that business packing, to start a new game
Track Name: Change My Hat
Cruising down the highway
... Blows my hair
Cruising down the highway
... Blows my hair
Head going round and round
Need to clear my head

Dealt my hand, chokin, on my back
Dealt my hand, chokin, on my back
Need to make some changes
Time to change my hat

Need to lose “chokin hat”
Chillin ... my hair
Whiskers man, groovy cat
Ain’t got a care
Feeling cool “bluesy” hat
I’m gonna wear

“Righty-o”, “okey doke”, “pick-me up” oh yeah
“Holly molly”, “full shebang”, choking hat is teared
Blow me down, get my drift, I gotta share
“This blues hat”, feels really good, ain’t got a care
Track Name: Technological Hoodoo
Woke up this morning, pushed the button on
Waiting for, do its thing, always takes too long
Checking mail, ready to reply
Just about to hit the keyboard when
Dam thing smoked and died

Ooh Techno, Computer blues, ooh ooh
Ooh Techno.....logical hoodoo

Feeling of helplessness, pushed the re-boot key
Had a nasty feeling, couldn’t be
Hope’n hell, did it all again
Cried and tried, no avail, tried everything

Ooh Techno, Computer blues, ooh ooh
Ooh Techno.....logical hoodoo
Track Name: Eat The Money
The kids are crying, does anybody care
Kids are crying “right now” does anybody care
The suits are talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talking
Getting nowhere,hey hey hey

The planets dying, everybody cares
The planets dying, “right now” everybody cares
The suits are talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talking
Getting nowhere, hey hey hey

Is it the money, or is it the will
If nothing changes, and we still get the bill
What will the suits say, there’s nothing left
Let’s “Eat The Money”, “til they elect”

The love is dying, anybody care
Love is dying, anybody care
The suits are sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleepin
Getting nowhere, hey hey hey

Lennon imagined, what good did it do
Everyone moaning, and working the stew
We all stood around, watching the brew
Let’s “Eat The Money”, “It’s what we deserve”
It’s what we deserve”
Track Name: Fire That Burns
I don’t wanna be, just in the game,
Don’t confuse it, don’t want no fame
I just wanna be, best I can,
Not for the limelight, just who I am

Love a new challenge, something to learn
And I know I can do it, it’s a fire that burns
Got to be, the best, the best you can be

I got nothin, prove to the world
I’m my hardest marker, just take my word
Work my butt off, anything I do
Extremely focused, anything new

Instead watch telly, feeding the flame
Can’t stand still, can’t stay the same
Looking for a level that’s “out of site”
Working through the day and into the night
Track Name: Tick Tock
Tick and a tock, a clock I can see
I got to, I got to, got to be free
Why’s there no time, day’s not mine
Not enough time for me

All go to battle, with time each day
Reach our commitments, no time to play
Must have more hours, need them now
Not enough time for me

Time man, oh please, I have to say
Time is faster, seems the way
A bit slower, time man oh please
Just a few minutes, just a few minutes, time to breath

Bread on the table, we need some pay
Too many hours, work each day
Must go go go, have to know
Need some more time for me
Track Name: Airport Blues
Touched down about an hour ago
Waiting in a queue, waiting for a scan
It’s a crying shame that it’s come to this
Airport blues, craziness
Today, I say, today, I say

Hooroo the airport blues, hooroo the airport blues
Grab me doovilacker and me thingummyjig
Jumping in a car, feeling like a king
Hooroo, the airport blues

Now the airport queues can go walkabout,
Not my bowl of rice, I’m out
Hit the frog and toad, any day,
Open up the window, that’s the way,
Today, I say, today, I say

Grab my pack of roadies, pair of strides,
Six string acoustic, I’m fine
Watch the big smoke from the rear view mirror,
Heading to woop woop, mother dear
Full tank of gas, and a corker blue sky,
Not a cloud in site, it’s dry
Heading to a place, I’ve never been before,
What a ripper, got my feet on the floor
Track Name: On This Road
On this road, feel like I’ve got, a long way to go
On this road, feel like I’ve got, a long way to go
No matter fast the wheel is turning, endless road

End of the rainbow, yeah there ain’t no gold
End of the rainbow, there ain’t no gold
Every time I reach to touch it, empty bowl

Need to breathe, hear the notes
Oooohh need to breathe, I can hear the notes
Feel the blues, body is moving, yeah needs to flow

I’m on this road, it’s a dream it’s sewn
Oooh on this road, yeh I dream it so
Think it’s time, the wheel is turning,
Yeah I’m good to go, Yeh Yeh
Track Name: Flew The Coop
He moved through circles laying social baits,
Loved to party, lots of mates
Wove a web, a bed of lies,
Wound’em in, hear the cries
Lived on their trust, thought he was true, Ye eh
Squirmed, ran, then “flew the coop”

Drawing in a smoke, he’d plan the next step
Anyone with money, anyone to rip
Said he’s a wiz, all part of the con
Needed cash to spend, where’s it all gone?
Lived on their trust, thought he was true, Ye eh
Squirmed, ran, then “flew the coop”

He say’s “I ain’t got a brass razoo”
Buckley’s chance, get the cash back
He’s done a “Harold”, beyond the black stump and back
Track Name: Day We Call Black
Wind was blowing strong, unbearable heat
Was doing a show that night, a birthday treat
How little did we know, that it was about to unfold
Really late in the night, we were told

I remember the looks on the faces, all in shock
Frantic calls on the mobiles, looks at the clock
Some had people they knew, in the danger zone
Some had family and they needed to know

A day we call black, Oh oh oh a day we call black

I remember early that day, there was no-one in the street
Strange feeling all around, had to get out of the heat
We were all there waiting, for some good news please
Then nature’s brutal fury un-leached
