about

The Hot Sprockets Dublin, Ireland

Five blood brothers from Dublin City, drawn together by their mutual love of Rock 'n' Roll. Take some good-time revolutionary spirit, add a pinch of psychedelic flavour and simmer it down with some Indie Soul; now you are somewhere close to the cosmic vibe of The Hot Sprockets.

With a new record due 2017, you better get ready for the ride because this is more than a band; it’s a force of nature.

Track Name: Quarter Roam
Well I lost, my time
With this one, I can’t lie
Smoke rose lost hope
Gets saved by the light
Well it’s a wondering circle of

You’re losing ties, sinking eyes
Sprawling snake charm
Goat skin lies
For the lonely few
Where the sun light abides

In sun, I lost light
So long my life
Smoke rose lost home
Gets saved by the night
Well it’s a wondering circle of

You’re losing ties, sinking eyes
Sprawling snake charm
Goat skin lies
For the lonely few
Where the sun light abides
Track Name: Soul Brother
Soul Brother, go get your feet up off the ground!

Mama, hangin' by the cherrytree
Ya scuffle, handin' out the two’s and three’s
Got a loaded mind, unbooted and mean
So brother, cop it deuce-ways and let me be yeah

Soul Brother, don’t make me turn around
Got a lot on your mind today
A southern brother, just trying to dig a new sound
It's as easy as the time of day
Soul brother!

Papa, you're lucky that the climb’s on me
Tripping, dancing like a honeybee
Keeping up with the rhyme yeah
Knocking sense out of me
So, brother.....

Half tipped to bleed
Scrape your feet
Find a scene
Take it all
Take it all
Take it all

Soul Brother, don’t make me turn around
Got a lot on your mind today
A southern brother, just trying to dig a new sound
It's as easy as the time of day

Soul brother! Go get your feet up off the ground yeah
Soul brother! Go get your feet up off the ground yeah
Soul brother! Go get your feet up off the ground yeah
Track Name: Boogie Woogie
You’ve been telling me, that I ain’t the one.
You’ve been telling me, I’m no fortunate son.
Well I know that, that’d be a lie.
Look at where you at now,
and look at where am I. Look at where am I…

Boogie Woogie! Won’t you boogie down?
Boogie Woogie! Won’t you boogie down?

I be up here, playing them old school tunes,
Like Tampa Red or your Big Bill Broonz.
Ain’t no delta blues, or your Ragtime!
Put on your dancing shoes now,
because it’s homeslice time. It’s homeslice time…

Boogie Woogie! Won’t you boogie down?
Boogie Woogie! Won’t you boogie down?

Blues now, ain’t no delta blues.
Put on your dancing shoes now,
it ain’t no delta blues.
Put on your dancing shoes now.
It ain’t no delta blues now.
Put on your dancing shoes now,
it ain’t no delta blues!

Ain’t no delta blues now.
Ain’t no delta blues now.
Put on your dancing shoes now.
It ain’t no delta blues now.
Put on your dancing shoes now.
It ain’t no delta blues now.
Put on your dancing shoes now.
It ain’t no delta blues!
Track Name: Shake Me Off
Every time I meet you baby, I can’t lie.
Everything about you, from your hand to your thigh;
Makes me shout, makes me squeal, makes me doubt, makes me feel,
Ooh baby, baby, baby, this ain’t real.

Intoxicated lately from the weight of the lust,
You’re gonna have to hold me back coz’ I can’t get enough.
Come on round, tie me down, love the sound I’m making now,
Can’t escape it even if I knew how!

I said oww, yeah! Won’t you shake me off?
Shake me off! Shake me off! Shake me off!

Typically speaking it’s a matter of opinion,
But of all the girls I’ve met, yeah you’re one in a million.
Come on round now, come on, come on round now,
Come on, come on, come on! Yeah!

Fever gots me burnin’ and it’s taking me high,
Like a seven-forty-seven coming out of the sky!
I’ve been through the dark and now I see the light.
Take it, shake it, shake it; let it fly!

I said oww, yeah! Won’t you shake me off?
Shake me off! Shake me off! Shake me off!

Fever, fever! It’s burning up inside me!
I can’t lie; yeah there ain’t no use in hiding.
Fever, fever! So exciting!
Oww yeah, won’t you come for a ride and…

Shake me off! Shake me off! Shake me off!
Shake me off, baby. Shake me off! Shake me off! Shake me off!
Shake me off! Shake me off! Shake me off! Shake me off!
Track Name: Comin' On
This is just to weigh my final call
So keep your head above your lip
To go from a notice to a stall
Keep it like a hit or miss
Final kick....

I'm comin’ on
This time
I'm comin’ on

Gnaw at the thought of keepin’ cool
Fascinate ourselves with home
Not what I find from you
It’s on the way, not where we go

Well ya bite my skin
Chase my tail
Run a mile and all over again
I’ve found, I got lost
Well ya tie me down
Slip inside, wrap those legs
Not far to hide
I know, I got lost

I'm comin’ on
This time
I'm comin’ on

I'm comin’ on, I'm comin’ on
Way to fast, way to strong
I know how to lose my low

I'm comin’ on, I'm comin’ on
Way to fast, way to strong
I know how to lose my low
Track Name: Homeslice
I'm remembering those better days,
of how you let me down.
Our minds cut through in different waves,
but sometimes they can't be found.
My friends have become mountains,
as they listen for a sound…

Act like a child but my age just lets me down.
We often collide but you never come around.
Will you come out of the shelf in your life?
I couldn't find my real trip, my homeslice.
Won’t you help me out?

And now we’re growing older,
as I sink into your skin.
Looking back over my shoulder,
I knew some day we'd win.
You took the best of me,
but I lost the rest of me.

Act like a child but my age just lets me down.
We often collide but you never come around.
Will you come out of the shelf in your life?
I couldn't find my real trip, my homeslice.
Won’t you help me out?

Act like a child but my age just lets me down.
We often collide but you never come around.
Will you come out of the shelf in your life?
I couldn't find my real trip, my homeslice.
Won’t you help me out?
Won’t you help me out?
Track Name: Heavy On My Mind
Stuck inside the day, lonely time
Hands have fallen to each and every rhyme
This can be the way, to hold your side
To step upon ya
But woman you got no fight
Got no fight

Cannot find a way, to hold our high
Let you go today, tomorrow you’ll be alright
Venting what you said would be you’re night
I step upon ya
But woman you got no right
Got no right

Empty night
Hands so light
Not thinking right
We’ll get you high

Empty night
Hands so light
Not thinking right
Heavy on my mind

Cannot find a way, to hold our high
Let you go today
Heavy on my mind
Heavy on my mind
Track Name: Lay Me Down
Lay me down.
Lay me down.
See, I’ve done some things I shouldn’t have.
Found a rose hidden ‘neath that broken glass,
out of view. Now I’m…

Running round, as I’m fading south.
Yet I’ll still help you out, when ye come undone.
When you come undone!

Walk away,
day by day.
Out from the East. Cross to the West,
war and peace has been laid to rest.
Still I’m…

Running round, as I’m fading south.
Yet I’ll still help you out, when ye come undone.

I’m hanging in, but I’m hanging on,
And I’ll still be here once you sing this song…

Falling down so hard. Now I’m
falling down so hard.
Come take me up some other time,
when all these stars are out of line and I’m wrong.
Because now I’m…

Running round, as I’m fading south.
Yet I’ll still help you out, when you come undone.
When you come undone!
When you come undone!
When you come undone!
I’ll be hanging in,
And I’ll be hanging on.

Lay me down. Lay me down.
Lay me down. Lay me down.
Lay me down.
Lay me down.
Track Name: Show Me The Weight
Can you show me the weight?
Can you show me the weight?
Can you show me the weight of your hand?

Can you show me the length?
Can you show me the length?
Can you show me the length of your stare?

Can you show me all the things that make me want to steep so low?

Can you show me the length?
Can you show me the length?
Can you show me the length of your stare?

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.

Can you show me the weight?
Can you show me the weight?
Can you show me the weight of your hand?

When you curse me to stay
I cross my hands
and cut out all demands!

Can you show me all the things that make me want to steep so low?

Can you show me the weight?
Can you show me the weight?
Can you show me the weight of these hands?
Track Name: Woman And Chile
Baby! Baby! Feed my mouth
Woman’s chile, I can do without
Baby! Baby! When in doubt
Your half cusp dare
Shows what love is all about
Woman! Woman! Read the signs
Shallow wilt to welt or
A piece of mind
Baby! Baby! You cannot hide
That woman’s boy just ain’t my chile

Babe you call home
Babe I know you call home

Baby! Baby! Hypnotize
Loving smiles I can’t keep from hide
Woman! Woman! Can’t deny
Whispered love to take another fool
By your side
Baby! Baby! Hear my cry
I choke on words
Through your blindest eye
Woman! Woman! You cannot hide
That woman’s boy just ain’t my chile

Well you can’t break down
A lonely man
There’s one out there
That likes to take a hand
For so much time, so much to see
You can’t lose out
Well, not before me…

Baby! Baby! That woman’s chile
Baby! Baby! That woman’s chile
Can’t lose out, I can’t be your lie
Track Name: The Worried Kind
Woman, look what you've done.
Moments, like fire to sun.
Your river has two sides,
But your mirrors either obliged.

The worried kind
The worried kind
Has fallen, behind
Has fallen, behind

Your mother fires like a gun;
Remembers so much that's gone.
Smokeless eyes have run.
The wonders they'll take as they come.

The worried kind
The worried kind
Has fallen, behind
Has fallen, behind
Track Name: Someday
I know of withered world
I know of leafy path
I know of blared eyed wisdom
That contemplates the past
Thoughts fly to ear
At the end of the day
Like wind to unwind

I don't want nothing that
Keeps my head down
Keeps my head down
Keeps my head down, no
Maybe someday
