about

Sweethearts of the Prison Rodeo Falkirk, UK

The Sweethearts of the Prison Rodeo provide a twisted blend of Americana by way of the Junction 5 of the M9. If The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Kurt Vile and Edwin Morgan had a bastard child then it would probably scream like the Sweethearts.

The Welcome EP was released in 2012 followed by the On the Desolate Hillside album in 2013. Their new album Pigs in the Bull Ring is out on the 6th of May

Track Name: You Are An Excellent Human Being (why don't you come round for your tea?)
You are an excellent human being
Why don’t you come round for your tea
You are an excellent human being
There’s not many like you and me
We can talk about how excellent we are
And how far we've come in our excellent, excellent lives
There’s a wind-swept thunder outside this place
So come on in you excellent human being you
You're endeared by my lack of beard and my womanly physique
As I gazed at you through my periscope from the edge of your bed watching you in the nude
I'm was just a impressionable boy who thought he was a man but he couldn't endure the full extent of his wicked intent on you
You are a benevolent woman
Why don't you come round for your tea
You are a benevolent woman
There’s not many like you, you see
Your kinder than all women kindness your virtuous and pure
You instilled belief in me
I’m impressed by your magnificent interest in theory of organic evolution
But you're frightened of a drawing of monsters like they're going to do you harm
I’m just a dwindling soul that scurries
like a mole to hide his shame in a hole for being frigid, furtive and frivolous
Take my hand and why won’t you understand
That without you I'd turn into a lazy fat man overnight
Track Name: To Let Redemption Sway On You
To Let Redemption Sway On You
I’m living in the grass
I’m living in the grass
I’m living under stone and mud
Earlier today I was stung by another creepy crawlie one

I prayed for one night and a day
I prayed to let redemption sway on you

I’m living in the grass
I’m living in the grass
I’m living under night sky
And for today I will sit and wait to be stood on to take my life away

I prayed for one night and a day
I prayed to let redemption sway on you

Like a red rag to a bull
A bull to a red rag
Sink or swim I want you to dive in me
I can't see because I've been blinded by you

I’m living in the grass
I’m living in the grass
I'm living just to stay alive
No one is here to say if I'll make it any way through the night or I’ll be eaten alive

I prayed for one night and a day
I prayed to let redemption sway on you
I prayed for one night and a day
I prayed to let redemption sway on you

Living, living, living
Living, living, living
Track Name: No Match for the Monster
I’m talking rubbish in my mother tongue
As I gently drift into a drunken stupor
Surpassing gregarious life and constant inhibition and a weekends waffling about a humpthermometer
Look into the microphone and talk to Jesus

No match for the monster
No match for the monster
No match for the monster
No match for the monster
No match for the kingdom
All it takes is one wrong move......

I’m sick of feeling sick on Sundays like a dogmatic rage lying dormant in an ecological cage.
I experience repugnance and shame when I think about the atrocities committed by the British Empire
We will become what they want us to be

No match for the monster
No match for the monster
No match for the monster
No match for the monster
No match for the kingdom
All it takes is one false move......

Some people don’t care some people just stare
They glamorise the empire
They glamorise the empire
They glamorise the empire
They glamorise the empire
Track Name: Faster in the Dark
How to make amends with old friends
when they don't want to know you
Write a letter send it in the post,
a bloodied message from a ghoulish host,
saying "why don't you write back soon?"

My loves indecent that’s the way it goes

At the morbid blue bottle soup kitchen
I offered you some cheese and you said
I’m not a huge cheese person;
I just laughed and said it would be funny if you were a huge person made out of cheese

We run faster in the dark.
To start the beating of our hearts

My love its indecent it’s indecent
My love it burns it burns for you
I’m eaten a leaches and peaches
My love its indecent it’s indecent.
My love it burns it burns for you
I’m eaten a leaches and peaches
My love its indecent it’s indecent
My love it burns it burns for you
My love its indecent it’s infrequent
My love it burns it burns for you
