about

Another track from the Rayguns Album "Wake Up calls And Lullabyes" out April 7th. 2017.
Kelvin Flats was a brutalist highrise development built in the Upperthorpe area of Sheffiled, UK in the late 60's and demolished in 1995. This song started it's life as "Little by Little" a commentary on the infamous UK miners strike (84-85) written by Simon Hill and Sean Russell of the late 80's Sheffield band "Eat A Peach". The Rayguns version was put together in 2003, updated but with the same theme; Beware of political power junkies playing games with the economy, the workers will end up loosing everything from livelihood and community to dreams and aspirations. Read / stay smart / get organized / stand together!

lyrics

KELVIN FLATS

Payday comes, it's the Top of the Pops
You're all lollied up and I'm out of a job
My only chance of changing the stats
Is to jump off the top of Kelvin Flats

And little by little, day by day
We’re left here to find our own way
Little by little can’t you see
Just what’s happening to me

You feel cheated but you don’t know
Where your destiny lies
Can you believe that someone once said
You get you pie in the sky when you die

And little by little, day by day
We’re left here to find our own way
Little by little can’t you see
Just what’s happening to me


Have you heard the story of those destitute men
They came from afar; striving, searching, those destitute men
Tell me your story, tell me your story destitute men
Tell me your story destitute men

And little by little, day by day
We’re left here to find our own way
Little by little can’t you see
Just what’s happening to me

about

The Rayguns Copenhagen, Denmark

30 år i garagerockens tjeneste og the Rayguns er stadig fulde af peps, og snart klar med LP'en "Wake Up Calls & Lullabyes". Live shows udvikler sig ofte til happenings, som fx dengang et hold kunstaktivister malede dem fra top til tå undervejs. Musikalsk står de med et ben i 60'ernes psykedelika, et ben i punk-/indie-rocken og pikken stukket dybt i en fristende chokoladedessert. Bon appétit! ... more
