A BRIEF HISTORY Of "ACID FRIED PSYCH POP":
-
Meteor Street began life as a four piece in January 2005 to play a tsunami relief gig. Comprising of Craigus Barry on lead vocals and guitar, Sam Jones on guitar and synth, Kryss Hall on bass and Ed Steelefox on drums, the lineup was completed in June 2006 with John-Joe Murray on violin and mandolin in due course Johnj also started to play synth.
-
The band played experimental, psychedelic influenced rock, and after establishing a local following in their home town of Worcester, they self released one EP and recorded a live EP through the CutOutSound internet label with a view of taking the music further.
As they finally grew tighter the sound went slightly away from pop/indie and leaned more towards prog.
-
The band then played several well received gigs in Bristol & London {albeit just a hazy memory for the band} and climaxed with blagging a stage to themselves at The Pandemonium Circus festival in Brixton February 2008 supporting the likes of Banglassi, La La Cravatz, Ed Cox and Tragic Roundabout.
-
The very last gig the band played was in April 2008 Leceister with the incredible liverppol band Apatt, shortly afterwards the band slowly lost interest, moved onto other things and went their separate ways..
-
These days:
*Ed’s just become a father,
*Sambo is making {I think,} alt country folk music,
*Johnj is well everywhere playing with Narcoleptic Penguin, ROBINSON & using his own trouty appendages,
*Kryss is a tattoo artist in Oxford.
*myself? I waste time typing these sentences..
-
What you have here is the "best" and the "worse" of Meteor Street. In reality we had a lot of inspired ideas, energy and sometimes direction but we could all be equaly very very appauling.. Take for instance - I hate my vocals here, but accept them for what they were at the time.. It was in equal parts fun, frantic and fuckin annoying..

Track Name: Ironically Yours
LYRICS:
Seasons change with answers
That the stars must bring..
Born under a bad sign where did that cliché begin?
So we search for answers in the distant map
And hell you told me to change now I can’t change back
-
But time flows like an arrow always along the straight and narrow
Sometimes winding sometimes turning but never giving in and burning out
-
Why should I feel so inclined?
I should try to feel denied..
-
Take advantage while you can
The redshift marks the celestial plan
God’s plant stars inside our minds send us to a higher plane
I’m not promising you this
I’m not promising you this
I’m not promising you this
But I shall promise you this..
-
The closer we are the weaker the prescence that seems clearly now
Deranged sociopath makes the world seem bland
So we search for answers in the distant map
They turn to questions and psalms ironically yours
-
So why should I feel so inclined to trust the stars to map the outline to my life?
-
Why should I feel so inclined?
I should try to feel denied..
-
Take advantage while you can
The redshift marks the celestial plan
God’s plant stars inside our minds send us to a higher plane
I’m not promising you this
I’m not promising you this
I’m not promising you this
But I shall promise you this..

Track Name: Quadrapus {acoustic}
Quadrapus
--------------
So you've gotta new phone?
Well that's just wonderful
Now we can keep in touch
Oh pay as you go from one train station to next
Lookin up ebay or the stock exchange
I'm still playing snake
Cus my phones out of date
---
Got other things in mind
Persuing colours
Oh dayglow day dreams
Where did I put it?
---
We all know that your memories not what it oughta be so use your phone and we can always plan accordingly
--
Oh wheeles and O'ris
Are txting daily
Social bliss
When we connect!
Track Name: If The Strait-Jacket Fits
LYRICS:
Surely you can’t deny the reasons are essentially your own
Why friendships come and then go the reasons are your own
If you should feel like the walls are closing in your not alone
Confined the smallest space equals a loto mistakes
-
Reality fades into the sky without a
Sound that crashes down
Upon the dreams we’re built around
-
Your outta your league at all odds with this world that’s apparently gone
Manically mad pressure applied from all directions over night
-
If you should feel like your world is out of sync
Your not alone
Deceptions come and then go
But the reasons are your own
-
Reality fades into the sky without a
Sound that crashes down
Upon the dreams we’re built around
-
Your outta your league at all odds with this world that’s apparently gone
Manically mad pressure applied from all directions over night
-
Why does it hurt when the ones who you love turn on you?
Yes we all change like sifting tides on time
But when you put the knife in mine
The blade is hard to believe but the point is harder to find
The reasons are your own
-
Track Name: 50's Son {Original Version}
50's Son
----------
=
Imagine if you could
Two friendships polarised by trust
Magnetism lift you up
Places secrets within a thoughtless touch
=
Consult the whim of your impulsive nature
That ensnares them all
Dissertate the morals and rules
And catch them every time you fall
=
Into the house with dribbley wax walls
Nectar isn't far away
Geckos traverse pine floors
Everything is beautiful and strange
=
And I annotate and pre translate what is new
And distance irritates as senses are retuned
Textures alive with vivid spirals
Veiled plates fall into place around you
=
Yet I get a sense that something is missing here
Track Name: Map Check Compass Check {Particle Flux}
LYRICS:
I’ve found this waypoint a way to shade the sunlight from my eyes
Triangular waypoints home
Sensations are in season once again
-
Whats happening? Where is this place? Where am I?
-
Search in cold for reasons unbeknown
the sunlight penetrates the canopy of trees above
Rapid eye and flickers once or twice upon frequencies omitting every vowel
-
We’re orient-eering
We’re orient-eering
-
I’ve found the savepoint
Linear vapour trails cascade digital skies
Binary jungle on a vivid urban sprawl
Progress forward push start once more
-
Silence takes a hold deep breathes and hold on tight
She’s turning through the motions found an exit sign
Adjusted wide brown eyes focus once then twice
And then fell upon fortunes familiar smile
-
She’s orient-eering
She’s orient-eering
Track Name: Malicious Metalics {Studio}
Malicious Metallics



I would love to lose control with an obscure surgical tool
When the penny drops heh sure it will I shall fulfil
The obligations of a unique day
Don't feel alienated as friends chip away
At what little patience still remains
A one man war

But when so and so says such and sucha such lies is it screaming lord Sutch such such a surprise to scream

Aloha Aloha ooo Hani's hacked off now

Fickle fin paper thin wallpaper personality
Is this what you thought of me
Or is it just inversed reverse psychology?

Irrational fear of those serrated edges
You know, that cut a life short via malicious metallics
Arbo A.S.B.O suspicions unfounded
Tightly wound round red tape italics
The undercurrents of truth sweep in beside
Obtuse disputes upon the river side
Judging others on a whim
Stabbing her cutting him best to avoid

Aloha -- x marks the spot
Synapse short cut I'm in blind panic at your door
Need some hefty thoughts to chew upon
Aloha -- age is not an accurate
Measurement for maturity
Just an obligation we all have to deal with

One door closes another life begins

But when so and so says sucha sucha such lies is it screaming lord sutch such such a surprise or is it sucha sucha such ah such sutch such a surprise
Screaming lord sutch such such a surprise
Aloha Aloha ooo Hani's hacked off now
Fickle fin paper thin wallpaper personality
Is this what you thought of me
Or is it just inversed reverse psychology?
Track Name: Schiphol Paranoia
Lyrics:
Back to square one again
To the clearing that we've made
With these bare hands
Feel blessed in the evening
Or rest upon the stony ground
-
With free out look means
Cometh several spirited leaps
-
Old but ebbing light
Illuminates the cold surroundings
Initiate the waking dream
-
I'm a restless soul
I'm a restless soul
I've learned all I've taught or so I'm sincerely told..
-
Upon the passages of time
Hazard a navigated guess
From the horizontal leap
To the vertical abyss
-
Old but ebbing light
Illuminates harsh cold horizons
Initiate the waking dream..
-
I'm a restless soul
I'm a restless soul
I've learned all I've taught or so I'm sincerely told..
