Adrian Eady The return of the Brit indie kings of anthemic madness, back from a 20 year absence, this is a brilliant return to form, some new anthems like Coma and a little bit of DLL weirdness... Favorite track: Platinum.

about

The Wishplants Higham Ferrers, UK

Formed in 1989 through a chance meeting, with the aim to play original songs The Wishplants soon gained a large local fan base, and a reputation for their anarchic live performances. Not in front of the children is a
unique hybrid of pop, rock, psychedelia it firmly nestles its roots in twisted vocal hooks and heavy driven guitar riffs built on a kaleidoscope of beautiful noise.

Track Name: Cracks
It’s cold in this room, your face has turned blue
Somehow it kind of suits you
The cracks in your face, the cracks in the wall, travel on and on
She only asked me to stay because I had to get home
And I wish that I had, now that I know what I know
There’s no room in this room
It’s so cramped that each time we stand we step into each other’s shoes
I want you to leave I want to be alone, our timing’s wrong
When we entered this room, we both seemed so young But the road that we travel goes on for so long, it goes on Like the cracks in your face, the veins in the wall, travel on and on
She only asked me to stay because I had to get home And I wish that I had, now that I know what I know Locked in with her, she will never, let me outside this room
And to think that I was only passing through
Track Name: Look at it Spin
The car rocks to and fro
I feel like letting go, when I can see the world from upside down
The people look a little like candyfloss, as the big wheel spins around
As I approach the top, I hope it never stops
I try to hold my breath the whole way round
I see goldfish, winning people, they don’t see me, as the big wheel spins around....Look at it spin, Look at it spinning around
They’re standing at the turn stiles, the crowd stretches out for miles
I’ve got the ride all to myself, but I can’t say that I’m glad to see them standing there, watching the big wheel spin around.
I can’t seem to think straight, life’s never so great
I’m not spinning around when I’m on the ground
And now I find myself reaching out for help as they prepare to pull my whole life down
It took them only half an hour to stop the wheel, to stop the wheel from spinning
Track Name: Invaders from Space
Invaders from space have stolen my wheels
Left me with a plastic spoon
When I wore plastercine shoes, the ones that you like Stableisers for your life.
Invaders from space, It’s your mum, or your dad and the uncles you forgot you had
Invaders from space, small T.V screens, tuning in with laser beams
They keep shifting their sizes, changing disguises
They don’t know I can see through.
Invaders from space,
Invaders from space have stolen my wheels, left me with a tainted view
It’s your mum or your dad, it’s your mum or your dad,,,,,it’s your mum,,, IT’S YOUR MUM ......that proves that we are not alone
Track Name: Nadia Comaneci
I touched the stars for you
These scars prove our love is real
But if that’s not enough
And you’re feeling that all hope has gone
And you’re on your own
And far away, that’s ok

Sometimes we fall asleep at the wheel
Track Name: New World
A new world is coming, science has won, freeze you’re head
We can make you believe, we can help you conceive
We can put your head onto somebody else
Steel skin, no hair, we walk nowhere
Commuters wear jet packs, everything’s silver
Track Name: Platinum
They’re talking dirty, in the room next door
Silence is golden, platinum is noise
Hogging all the telephones, you’re laying with the boys........
Track Name: Magnetic North
It’s only to help me to get through. It’s only to help me forget you.
Red wine, kissing my lips, it’s not love, but it’s close enough
Kiss, kiss, my lips I’m born again. Set a new course, magnetic north
It’s not love, but it’s close enough for us tonight.
Stand in line, clap in time to spirit in the sky, you know I’d die for you

8 hours straight and I’m starting to sweat
Already thinking of getting the next hit
Don’t seem to help because it’s not love

Set a new course, magnetic north. It’s not love, but it’s close enough for us tonight.Stand in line, clap in time to spirit in the sky, you know I’d die for you
Time to set a new course, magnetic north

I don’t need to feel the ground below me, blue skies above
If I fall again, it’s only love
Track Name: Vermifuge
Don’t cry the pain will be over soon, and I can’t pretend I’ll miss you when you’re gone

My hands feel on fire
I’m burning up inside

I need what you hide from me, my senses are reeling, and I’m feeling sick and I don’t think I can eat anymore

Hush baby…. Open your mouth
Track Name: Virtual Comrade
Virtual comrade:
Moscow is set to fall.
Retune your radio.
Making deals in the back rooms.
It’s time to risk it all.
All systems set to go.
Making deals in the bedroom.
Moscow is set to fall....Take control.
The heavens are waiting. It’s been such a long time.
Take control.
To hang or to fall......makes no difference at all.
Track Name: People Come On
Once is all you say that you need, and everybody comes and goes
And everybody knows, it makes no difference in the end
And I for one, cannot be so sure, when everything just comes too late
You always have to wait, you’re speaking out of line, you’re speaking out of time, and I can’t hear you
Come on, baby come on
Got to get where you’re going now, got to keep moving on,
People come on, take me anywhere, anywhere you want
Buried to the neck and trapped, by nothing more than thoughts of being someone else, just let it all go
Because holes appear in empty spaces every time that you come near
Pick up the pieces here, they’re still warm to the touch
It may not seem like much
But it’s all we have now
