Lyrics
Tonight’s the night
To get it out right here now

Tiananmen Square
Stood a lonely man
Incites a traffic jam
As the lamb lays down with the lion (modified)

Daddy knows that it's late
You don't even know what side he's on...
Dig in the paddy fields although it's dark
The towers will glisten in the morning sun

Tonight’s the night


Jared Puppe - Bass
Barry Lane - Drums
Ryan Chubb - Vox + guitar

Magic!
Reminiscent of Oz band "Eskimo Joe" (worth a listen) who are a
favourite of mine. Like the lyrics, like the song - great bass sound,
good guitar and drums and excellent vox. Also liked the production -
not bad for the setup you mentioned. First take eh - magic.

southern death bono
Nice sound to this, love the Edgy (Ha) guitar, sounds like the ol' southern
death cult as well.

There's a definite strong verse/ chorus here, in fact, musucally and
structurally this is all here - the vocal melodys jsut need fleshing out to
get the hooks in.

good work keep going ...
