Got A Peel Session

Got A Peel Session

We got a Peel Session
And we’re really proud
We’re taking our guitars
And we’ll play ’em loud

Heading out of Letchworth
in Dave’s dodgy van
Hitting Maida Vale
With four songs to jam

This is the life! This is the dream!
We’re gonna be cool players on the indie scene!

In the festive fifty
Boom! at thirty-nine
The guy from Damaged Goods
Showed us where to sign

Rock City, Waterfront,
King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut
Even got on telly
Not a door was shut

This is the life! This is the dream!
We’re influential figures on the indie scene!

But Josie quit the drums
The dynamic cracked
Writer’s block and Charlie
Couldn’t get it back

That shop in Notting Hill
Took some signed CDs
But now our angsty sound
Doesn’t seem to please

Is it the life? Is it the dream?
Who remembers us on the indie scene?

Twenty five years later
My kid plays the bass
I run a vegan pub
And it feels ace

Wouldn’t change a minute
Still in touch with Jo
Japan floated a tour
Might give it a go…

It was the life! It was the dream!
We loved our days on the Indie scene!
It was the life! It was the dream!
We loved our days on the Indie scene!
